He didn't get his daca revoked or a deportation order, just paid his fines and did comm. service. However, his DWI made him unable to renew DACA.

It really depends how long you decide to wait to get married. Once you are married (legally), you can file an I-130 for him. When the I-130 is approved, he will probably need a waiver.
