You need criminal defense and immigration experts. Assault with bodily injury family member is what it sounds like, not a Class C but Class A. It is a serious assault just short of felony. Family violence is very serious and damaging to immigration status.
The problem is that Assault by definition is classified as a Crime of Violence. Under section § 101(a)(43)(F) of the INA a crime of violence “for which the term of imprisonment is at least 1 year" is an Aggravated Felony. Aggravated Felonies are grounds for deportation. You need to hire an immigration attorney as soon as possible. Wish you luck.
