Years ago we had charges that were both dropped but a condition was no contact, years later we reconciled and are now married will this lead to my immigration being denied?
This question is best answered by an immigration attorney, not a domestic violence attorney. I have reposted it that category.
Not if all the charges were dismissed so there was no conviction. You will have to disclose the arrest if there was one. That disclosure will lead to the need to produce final disposition and explain.

If there were no convictions you should be ok. However, just to be on the safe side, make sure that the no contact orders were dropped.
I don't believe you will have any issues since the charges were dismissed.
