    Yes, a felon can marry and file a family-based petition, but it depends on the nature of the felony conviction. Certain crimes will trigger the immigration components of the Adam Walsh Act, designed to protect unsuspecting beneficiaries and dependent minors from sexual exploitation, etc.

    Consult with an experienced immigration attorney. Good luck.
