Will a criminal record stop me from getting a I129F? Posted on April 26, 2011

Back in 1981, at the age of 20, I was arrested for welfare fraud. Entered pretrial intervention, withhold adjudication, probation with restitution to the State of Florida. I recently submitted an I129F petition for my Cuban fiance in which I was not required to disclose this arrest based on the questions asked in it. Will this arrest cause my petition to be denied? Should I contact USCIS? Since that arrest I have not had any problems whatsoever. Do you think this problem would cause denial of my petition at the USCIS or NVC levels?
