Why?


“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

Why did you get a 2 year green card to begin with? By your timeline, it appears as if you should not have had to adjust status when you entered the U.S. after you were married 2 years.You should have received a 10 year green card. If I am wrong please correct me.

just tell your wife you will file married as separate, most of the time filing jointly is better tax breaks so that is hurting her too she will have to file taxes to. If she did not work then it does not matter you can file married jointly or separated

I'm no expert in filing USA taxes, but if she did not work, and you file jointly (i.e. you claim for her) then I think you have maybe an extra 8,000 dollars of tax free allowance - easy money in your pockets, and you do all the work, she just has to agree to you doing it. Ah well, perhaps it's a small price to pay for marital harmony - if she wishes to be foolish like this it's her right, and maybe just smile after she says no, and accept it...

Buy signing a joint return she is also accepting the liabilities and risks that go along with the return; perhaps she knows something about his return we don't?

If she doesn't want to file jointly with you, then fine. She can file married filing separate. She will probably lose out on a large chunk of money but whatever.

I suspect there is more wrong with the relationship than how to file taxes

That is one of my points. If OP is going to be removing conditions, which is why he is so worried about his tax filing status so he can use as evidence he may have to be concerned about whether or not his wife will actually cooperate thorough the ROC process. However, if I were OP I would be scheduling an infopass. Edited by TagTeam
