Unhappy K1 denied, now what?

I am a UK citizen looking to marry a US citizen.

I went to my K1 interview today in London and was denied due to two shoplifting convictions in the UK (both fines under 100 GBP) that happened 20 years ago when I was 18 years old (now 39).

The lady told me that I can however apply for am i-212 waiver.

I read something about if these convictions are over 15 years ago I have a good chance. Is this the case? Is the waiver worth going for? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, the waiver is worth going for due to the nature of the crime and their age.

The rule of thumb seems to be if you are recommended for a waiver, it will be approved.

Sounds more like a I 601.
Well prepared waivers are usually approved.

That's little confusing. Is E-212 specific K1 and I-601 to CR-1?

I-212, Application for Permission to Reapply for Admission into the United States After Deportation or Removal
https://www.uscis.gov/i-212

If you are inadmissible under the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) section 212(a)(9)(A) or (C), you must ask for consent to reapply for admission to the United States (consent to reapply) before you can lawfully return to the United States. Consent to reapply is also called “permission to reapply.” You should use this application to seek consent to reapply.

I-601, Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility
https://www.uscis.gov/i-601

If you are inadmissible to the United States and are seeking an immigrant visa, adjustment of status, certain nonimmigrant statuses or certain other immigration benefits, you must file this form to seek a waiver of certain grounds of inadmissibility. Please refer to the instructions to determine whether you should use this form.

Evidence to support a waiver of criminal grounds of inadmissibility found in INA section 212(a)(2) (if applicable)

OP should have received some letter. I would speak to an attorney about this.

I suspect OP means “waiver of INA section 212 ineligibility.” I think Boiler is correct that it’d be an I-601.
