Same requirements?

So I've posted a lot in the K1 section as I'm in the process of mine with my UK fiance. However, my fiance has a criminal record (one juvenile charge and two adult cautions) and I've been told a lot that I'll probably be denied and might be easier to just do the CR1. My question is, if we are denied and then get married, do they look at the same record for the CR1 or just the actual convictions. (And I know the immigration treats cautions as convictions since they have to agree to them) but I was told that they only look at convictions from judges. How much truth is this or would I be better to just do a waiver? Only ask because I've been told so many different things.

Yes, the same criminal record criteria for the foreigner applies to ANY visa where one intends to "immigrate" to the US.

Agree the criminal history is the same, so would any Waiver.
