Kelli Y Allen's answer It sounds like you have two distinct issues. From an immigration perspective, assuming you are a U.S. citizen or permanent resident you can file an immigrant visa petition for each of them. As long as all visa/admissibility requirements are met, visas can be approved. However, for her son to use his visa, he must have a passport which will require consent of the father. If he does not agree, your wife will probably need to hire a family law attorney in Mexico to deal with that issue. In...

Hector E. Quiroga's answer She can try to get any of a number of nonimmigrant employment visas, including the TN. Her first step is to establish a relationship with an employer who would like to hire her.
Richard Sternberg's answer If you are emigrating to Poland, you need to consult with and follow the advice of a Polish immigration lawyer. Lawyers licensed in the U.S. only are not qualified to answer, and it is ethically questionable to communicate with a represented client. If you doubt the advice of your Polish immigration lawyer, you should seek a second opinion from another Polish immigration lawyer.
Andrew L. Bennett's answer That is a complicated area of law, the person needs to consult with an immigration attorney. An OWI is considered a crime of moral turpitude and could have deportation consequences.
In order for immigrants to be able to work legally in the United States, they should have a valid work permit card also known as an EAD card. Some college students will get an EAD card at the end of their course, you will not have any issues hiring that student to work for you if he/she has a valid work permit that will remain valid throughout the duration of the job. Alternatively, you can also sponsor an employment visa for that student but it has strict requirements. Consult...
Hector E. Quiroga's answer A visa denial, in and of itself, would have no bearing on your fiancé’s K1 visa approval. It is a question of why it was denied. It is very possible that it was denied because he admitted that he was going to see his fiancé(e) in the U. S., which is not the proper use of a tourist visa. You do not say if you have filed the K1 visa already, but if you had, that likely had some bearing on the decision.
Hector E. Quiroga's answer It sounds like your case will be approved; you have written evidence of it from a USCIS officer. If you’ve not received your green card within 60 days of the interview, you can contact USCIS for an update.
Roger Carl Algase's answer If you came to the US with a J-1 visa, depending on what country you are from and what J-1 program you came with, you might be subject to the 2-year foreign residence requirement and need to apply for a waiver of that requirement before you can get a green card. You should look into this with the help of an experienced immigration lawyer.
As for your marriage green card interview, that would normally take place at the nearest immigration office to where you live, i.e. Indianapolis.
Kevin L Dixler's answer More information is needed. How did you obtain your permanent resident status? Were you lawfully admitted into the United States as a visa holder or enter without inspection? Does the crime involve physical injury? What is the maximum penalty for the offense?
I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are more complications.
