Hi there, 


I am a US Citizen married to a DACA recipient. We went through the AOS process, got our green card interview. We were approved for a valid marriage but my SO had been cited in 2009 for possession of less than 30g of mary jane. We attempted to get the court records but since it was already 7 years they had been destroyed, going into the interview we were blindsided by the fact that they had an admission of guilt from him signing papers to take a class as his punishment. We are going to work to make the case for extreme hardship for separation, he is from Costa Rica. We're not really sure how to make the case because financially I am able to take care of myself and we do not have any children and neither of us have any medical conditions. The biggest impact this separation would have would be mentally and emotionally. We are newlyweds and it makes no sense for us to live in two different countries. I cannot live in his country because I don't know the language, I would be a religious minority there, and my education/career is very US centric - HR laws do not translate to CR HR laws. We have a lawyer but would love to have some extra help if anyone has been in a similar situation.
