zeeshan123 - Sorry to hear about your case. That's very unfortunate. There are a few things about your case that are not clear or don't make sense. During these 4 years of marriage were you living together? Are you a GC holder or USC? How did your wife get a 10 year permanent GC before a conditional 2 year GC? As you can see there are a lot of things that don't make sense here. If you are saying that she got her 10 year GC then unfortunately you cannot do much at this point and if you filed sponser papers for her then you are also liable for the next 10 years to support her. So if she decides to claim support from you she will be able to do so and you will be liable for it. Sorry to break the bad news. Perhaps someone else can chime and give you more info. Good Luck!

Her 10 year green card has been issued. Her marital status is no longer relevant to her immigration status. However, the affidavit of support will remain for some time to come - potentially, for the rest of her life. There is nothing he can do to have her green card revoked, unless he can prove that fraud was used to obtain it. He also cannot legally withhold her green card from her, though she is legally obligated to notify USCIS of her current address.

The situation really sucks, but it does happen, unfortunately. :(

Read the OP's post a little more closely. He's posting for a friend of his - he is neither the US citizen nor the immigrant in this particular matter.

His friend's wife came on an IR1 visa, which means they were married for at least two years at the time the visa was issued. She would receive a 10 year green card upon entry, and not a 2 year conditional green card.

As others have said, there is nothing your friend can do immigration wise; there was a 4 year marriage, 2 years at least before the visa , so fraud would be very very difficult to proof. The best thing to do is divorce and get on with his life.

Jim is correct, as usual. Also, tell your friend that opening mail not addressed to him (but to his wife) can have serious legal consequences. He has to hand the Green Card to his wife and then hope she doesn't make a big deal out of this. If he withholds her card, the fist of Justicia may hit him right in the face.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

He can always return the mail back to sender, "stating Receiver does not reside at this address". Then he can let immigration handle it from there. By the way a GC of any magnitude can be revoked, if immigration feels the card was obtained under false pretenses.

there is a presumption that this woman entered on basis of the marriage and intent to pursue it, despite the fact that it is a 10 year card.

the fellow in question should send the card back to the issuing agency with a cover letter indicating that the marriage did exist legally, but was not cohabitive, and that she does not live with him and has not since (whatever date). he should indicate that he was not involved in the process of obtaining the card (how could this be? he needs to provide sponsorship documents for her to get the visa). he should report that he was not told of her intent to immigrate, nor has she contacted him since her arrival, preferring to live at a different address. USCIS will sort this one out, and possibly determine that she entered fraudulently, especially if he did not provide the docs as required in the following guide:

http://www.visajourney.com/content/i130guide1

if she falsified one step of the process it is fraud, plain and simple.

if your buddy did provide the docs, he has less ground to stand on. this process is lengthy and full of opportunity for him to shut it down. if he failed to do so and still wants her out of here he should see a very good immigration attourney. this being an indian case, i would suggest he take the issue to rajiv's forum, immigrate2us.net

Oh my!! i'm very very sorry for your friend situation, the experienced members would give the answers he needs, i just dropped by to say im sorry to hear this happenned to him.

The wait would be unbearable but it'll be worth it. It strengthens the love, it attaches you even more to each other, it shows how your man would do whatever it takes to be with you, that he will never give up on you because he LOVES you!! All the waits, stresses, tears, heartaches, all the miserable feelings you feel along the way will be paid off once you get what you've been hoping for...oh and WITHOUT PRAYERS? will be like trying to start a fire with water, JUST WON'T WORK!

Without her green card how is she planning on entering the US? Has she applied for and been granted a visitor visa?

Be very careful what you do with her green card. It is not yours and if you tamper with it you are commiting a federal offense.

Maybe you should write a letter and mail it back to the USCIS at the address that issued it stating that she has never resided with you, does not intend to and is not present in the US.

I'm not to familiar with the IR visa though.
