I am applying fiance visa girl friend in the Philippines but

Customer Question

I am applying for a fiance visa for my girl friend in the Philippines but I have a prior conviction? The conviction was simple battery? and cruelty to children in the third degree, meaning the child saw the mother and I argue and hit each other. I was convicted and received probation. How hard would it be for me to get approved for the petition for the fiance visa?
