Conviction is the operative term. If the cases were dismissed or you were convicted of other crimes, then they are not convictions for alcohol or controlled substances.
Ot doesn't sound like you have three convictions. However I can not tell you for sue without looking at your entire record.
Juvenile may also not count.
In any event you need to answer the questions honesly and provide complete certified records of each case from the police report tot eh final disposition. In many cases a misdemeanor case will no longer be available. If that applies to any of your cases you will need to atleast get a certified fianl disposition and docket sheet from the clerk's office for the case.
I'm confused. Are you the US Citizen petitioner? If so, it doesn't matter.
If you're not the US Citizen, and you are in Minneapolis, then a K-1 fiancee visa may not be the correct one for you to consider.
