Ketan is going to need to get a police clearance certificate from Australia. The consulate can and does still look at civil records.  If Ketan wants to come to the US he better clean up anything he is responsible anywhere in the world.

Yes, the beneficiary is run through multiple international databases and vetted everywhere he lived.   My wife was vetted in Philippines and Mexico.

Secondly if He will clear the Unpaid Fine to Australia Then Will it be allright for Him in the Case Process...

That is up to the consulate.  Driving Under Influence may not be very serious in Australia or elsewhere but it is very serious in the US.  If he wants to be in the US he will be held to US Standards.  If he were to do that in the US it could affect getting Permanent Residence or even Citizenship.  If serious enough he would be deported.

As mentioned above he will need a police report from Australia. If she didn't mention it on the spouse petition, then he will get a second chance at the embassy... (he needs to show up with the Australian police report and simply explain why it was left out in the first place). If by chance he gets away with it without correcting it it now, then it will hunt him forever and when it catches up with him years later even if he is a citizen he will be denaturalized and sent back to 🇮🇳

As it can result in Prison time I would say it is a serious offence in Australia. Presumably there is a warrant out for his arrest?

When you get to NVC stage he will need to fill out the relevant document and disclose the DUI’s that happened in Aus... the question is very specific and will be covered under 2-3 points... if he doesn't disclose the DUI’s he will be committing fraud. 
 

with ref to the national police certificate in Aus... it will show all offences for each state that have occurred in the last 10 years.. while DUI’s are covered under RTO legislation and generally not classified as criminal they still can be if he blew high range, if occurred in certain states or if they remain outstanding and are escalated.. Regardless, the questions at NVC stage still covers civil Legislation and the breaching of any law (not just criminal) still needs disclosing by him.

 

you’ll need to contact SPER to get records of payments and the court house for records of the hearing for the consulate during his interview, so I suggest he gets the fines paid off ASAP.
 

Also note if the two offences occurred within 5 years of each other he may be inadmissible.. while waivers can be obtained for this, they most definitely will not be granted if they remain outstanding. 
 

note, I have two dui from 20 years ago in Aus, and still had to disclose them..it’s not a big deal provided you tell the truth and pay the fines etc..

Not really considered a huge issue.. is traffic offence (breach of local laws) not criminal unless under certain circumstances.. There will likely be warrants out if it went to court and he failed to pay fines etc which seems to be the case here, so he does need to deal with them as current warrants will show on his national police certificate.
