I would need to know whether he was deported for a crime or other matter and the details of the deportation to properly advise you both.

Most likely no. Deportation is not a criminal record. Since the US government does not request any civil or administrative record in order to make a visa application decision, it should be fine.

All all of the European Interpol criminal records are archived in computers. Your fiance must be truthful in his immigration applications. USCIS will most certainly learn that he was deported from Greece, so your fiance should be prepared, with documentary proof, to explain why this happened. US law regards crimes, anywhere in the world, as evidence of moral character. Certain crimes are considered of "moral turpitude". If he has a record of a crime of moral turpitude, it is not likely that he will be admitted to the United States. This board is not the place to discuss this matter. You need to sit down with an experienced immigration lawyer for a confidential interview.

If he was deported for criminal reasons, it will have an effect. Otherwise, if he is eligible through you, then he should be ok. You should hire a lawyer to handle this case for you.
