i was 15 when i got the charge and i am now 18. the requirement says, “They must comply with all federal and state laws, pass a criminal background check” would i fail the criminal background check or does that only apply to felonies?
If you have a personal criminal record it will show during any state or federal criminal background check. Look into a possibility of expunging it under the state law if legally applicable with a local licensed attorney.
You need to consult directly with an experienced immigration attorney even remotely as any incorrect action on your part may affect your immigration benefits or adjustment of status. Do not delay as acting blindly would be rather foolhardy.

As far as I know my boyfriend was brought over through his parents visa as a child, they overstayed their allotted length and he is now 19. We want to get married to get him his citizenship. They came by sea.
If you are a US citizen and your boyfriend entered legally, despite that he is now out of status, then after you get married he has a case. Discuss with an attorney anywhere in the USA for representation.

I would need more information in order to give you a proper answer. I can tell you that if the I 130 was filed while your husband was in immigration proceedings, it will take a very long time (as much as a year or more) to receive an answer. This is because the matter is sent to a specific unit...Read more »
Pros and Cons of DACA? How has been affected by DACA? What laws regulate DACA? What is the current status of DACA? Why was DACA put in place by president Obama? Why has our current president Trump revoked DACA?

In 2014, the Administrative Procedures Act was used to try to show DACA as being unconstitutional.
