Hi VG Fam, Long time but everything has been wonderful with my liberian queen, and our little baby girl. However, I have a friend who could use some help with a situation I think is serious. She meant a guy and married him, and they've been married for three years, and they have a daughter together. The guy is from Ireland, and now she wants a divorce because she found out the guy mislead her. She found out the guy in question is Gay!!

but he already had a temporary green card that's good for ten years. She doesn'twant anything to do with guy anymore, what can she do, can she cancel the AOS?

Let me know, I know there are a lot of smart people who use this site.

Thanks guys.

Not sure how a temporary card can be for 10 years, I thought they were for 2 years?

Anyways, same answer as always.

Have your friend file for divorce, notify USCIS as to the status and move on with your life.

Not that you're suggesting it but being Gay doesn't carry the social issues of years past so not a reason for fraud, especially seeing that they have a child together.

Best advice to give to your friend is to not get consumed by thoughts of punishing or getting her SPouse deported. Not her job and not going to happen. The time for energy, in my opinion, is before the petition when one can do as much due dilligence as possible.

Good luck to the little Girl on her future.

There is not much your friend can do…. As suggest file for divorce and notify USCIS and move on.

Having a kid with your friend would make it difficult to prove he is gay….. unless you have s solid evidence of something that he just married to obtain the GC and citizenship.

People's sexuality is a complicated thing. The fact that the two of them have a daughter together suggests that their marriage was genuine, not deliberate fraud. Things happen and marriages often don't work out. People struggle with their sexuality for years before they figure out what they really want. I'm sorry it didn't work out for them, but there's no point in trying to punish him for not being what she wanted him to be.

There is nothing she can do about his green card.

By the way, it is not a "temporary green card that's good for ten years." It is a regular good old green card. Even if it is expired, he still keeps his status as a Legal Permanent Resident.

Also, AOS ended when he first got his conditional green card. She can't stop what has already ended. AOS is irrelevant at this point.

After 15 years of marriage, a friend of mine told his wife that he wanted a divorce because he realized that he was gay. It happens. It's not fraud. It's like others have posted, a difficult situation where a person is grappling with his sexuality.

Divorce and move on.

Just a correction here, I believe the OP is referring to the "Affidavit of Support" so saying the "AOS ended when he got his conditional greencard" in that context wouldn't be correct.

-- OP - The Affidavit of Support (I-864) is legally binding. She cannot cancel it. The ONLY chance to cancel it was before he ever got his first greencard. I doubt he lied to her on purpose while having a child with her. I agree with everyone else that said, he was probably fighting his feelings. I know a guy that didn't realise he was gay until he was about 20. He just never thought about it. He'd had a girlfriend but didn't realise the lack of attraction to her was because he was gay, he just thought it was about her. He didn't realise he was gay until he met a guy and fell in love.

I'm assuming, that this revelation of her husband being 'gay' was based on a confession? which most likely came from many months or even years of no physical intimacy, and the relationship was most likely, more friendship, than a marriage? If not.. then while she might not be comfortable with his sexual orientations, and choose not to continue their marriage based on this, labeling him as 'gay' and 'a fraud' is a fairly strong assumption.
