Felony for Theft 5 years ago

Hello to all of you. I am new to this forum and perhaps this question has been asked before. I have read the IMBRA regulations and I cannot find the crime I was convicted of in 2005 (Theft by a bank officer or employee) is relevant. But I am wondering if this will have an adverse effect on my K-1 Visa filing. An immigration attorney is aware of the Felony conviction (I have completed my sentence and probation) and says it should present no problem but may need clarification if my name comes up on a criminal background check (I am assuming it will).

If it is not an IMBRA crime or an AWA crime it will not have an effect on the petition.... FWIW, AWA crimes are the only crimes that cause a USC to be ineligible to petition

If the crime is not an IMBRA or AWA crime, will my name come up on a criminal background check list when they do the search?

Of course it will.... but it does not make you ineligible
