A single DUI should not impact your eligibility to apply for a green card, but be careful, the officer could make a determination of inadmissibility if you have problems with alcohol.

It will not affect you at the I-526 stage. Possible at later 485 or consulate processing stage.

A single DUI, without any aggravating factors, typically is not a ground of inadmissibility or removability. You will have to complete a medical exam where you will be asked about alcohol and drug use and any addiction or problems you have in that area. If the medical exam report is clear, you should not have any problem.

It would come up when applying for the green card. There are differences between charge, conviction, arrest, etc. so that needs to be clarified and documentation gathered.

If it is the only DUI or criminal issue, your attorney may be able to deal with it.

Should be OK; it will need to be disclosed and you will need to show everything the court told you to do has been taken care of.

If you are consular processing, depending on the country, they may find that you are inadmissible based on alcoholism.
