It certainly should not affect you. They may invalidate his visa and he may have to get a new one when he travels and there may be medical tests involved which may delay the visa by a few days.

Please get a good DUI Lawyer and an Immigration Lawyer involved to do damage limitation.

His H4, Yes. Your H1b, No.

His visa can be assumed revoked already and he will need to appear at consulate for a new visa stamp along with any medical panel tests consulate orders him to go through.

Contact an immigration attorney asap for in depth review for your and his case if you have any confusions or further specific questions.

Thanks for the reply. We did not get any revoked statement. His court date is 12-4-2019. His driving license is revoked we went for hearing. We took the attorney appointment. Do we need to take any immigration step. As we had approved visa as of now.

A visa is a physical stamp in the passport used to enter a country. In this case they may prudentially revoke his H4 visa stamp which means he can stay till the current I94 and if he wants to travel, he will need a new H4 visa.

Also involve an immigration attorney as well to make sure you are making the right calls. You don't want to accept some plea without understanding immigration consequences.
