well i understand that my family will face no problem becsuse of my if she and my kids get the visa, how about my situation? I had bad cheques in one of the middle eastern country. it happened due to recession in 2008. once they get the visa they will move to states , hence I have to stay in my country. but my kids are only 8 so do I still have waiver opportunity?

There is a chance you can be denied. I cannot say for sure without studying your criminal record which is beyond the scope of this website. You must be honest about your convictions in any case. If it is a conviction that they will deny you due to then they will let you know at the interview. I hope this helps to clarify.
