Feb 17th Went to interview. No green card awarded. Officer asked for my tax files for the last 4 years and wife's previous

marriages divorce papers. She was married four times before me, all american men, but we have sent with the initial forms

only her latest marriage divorce decree. She was married to the first three husbands

for very short time, something very young and inexperienced people do. The fourht and last marriage before me lasted 13 years.

They gave me 30 days to sent the requested papers.

I've been in US for 25 years. Came with wife. Got a green card through a lawyer. 10 years later, suspicion my green card

was fake led me to not work anymore as an employee. I started my own business and have been workin on my own since, filing and

paying taxes every year. I do owe some taxes and that is why with my current marriage to my US citizen wife, we did not file

taxes jointly as I don't want her to get her return taken. I want to pay my own taxes instead of them taking from her.

All this was told to the officer at the interview as he was very intensively asking questions, even though I've been married

to a US citizen for two and a half years and started dating her four years ago. I am afraid I will not get the green card,

either because I owe taxes or because they may suspect I married for the green card. If I did, I would not have waited 4 years

since I met my wife. I thought my green card I had for decaddes could still be good, and only got certain it was not when

recently looking for a new job and its verification failed. So my wife decided to petition for me.

We have a car financed on our names, as well as credit cards and a vacation timeshare mortgage.

He also asked where my Brazilian previous wife which I divorced in 2009 lives. We divorced more than two years before I met my

US wife, and he also asked if she has or had that same green card I got long ago. As far as I know she no longer has it also and so

she is also out of status. We did have a child in 1999 and she is 16 years old now, living mostly with her mom, visits me often.

Feb 25th I sent requested information to them by FedEx next day

Feb 26th FedEx delivered the package to them early morning

Mar 18th No news from USCIS yet
