Hi everyone bonjour, I met my wife in Paris I was doing my MBA and working as journalist I am 30 and she is 24, I moved here to the USA after hard time she was convincing me. We had a son together born in California, I was stay home dad watching our son, my wife does weed and other things that ruined everything. I have told her the baby can live like this. After a year and half of marriage she and her mom kicked me out. I wasn't working cuz I was watching our son and I went through hard time and shock that leaded to a severe pneumonia and now my leg is handicap. It's been a year since then and she won't let me see my kid and I have no money to get a lawyer, divorce is almost final. The thing is I can't walk properly and she doesn't want to give me any evidence even the birth certificate of our child. We lived at her moms so no lease and her mom either dosent want to give me the affidavit that we lives there. No bank account since I wasn't working and she was working part time so we had money issues. I don't know what to do?

Search online for "legal aid" or "legal services" in your area. You probably qualify for a legal aid attorney for your divorce. If you are applying for Removal of Conditions, you will need to have your divorce finalized and apply with a divorce waiver. I can't tell for sure if that's where you are in your immigration journey because you need to fill in your timeline, but probably that's where you're at.

So, assuming that you need to apply for ROC, you need a lawyer to get you a divorce (and while he/she is at it, they'll get you financial records, copies of photographs documenting your marriage, and the birth certificate for your USC child - you can even apply for custody!) and potentially someone to give you advice on the immigration portion. 

None of us on here (or very few) are qualified to give you legal advice - that's part of why no one is answering. 

Contact as many providers of legal services as it takes to find someone qualified to help you. There are free and low cost programs out there, you just need to find one.

Thank you. For the divorce, she already applied for divorce or annullement, I applied too but she was first, right now I can't walk my leg is half paralyzed, she served me by mail with divorce by default, should I apply right after I get the divorce or annulement? Do I need an immigration lawyer because she won't give me some evidences that I need? Thank you
