Why would she leave once she got her green card? Does she have EAD(work permit)? Have her just start working. You receiving disability for yourself shouldn't have any effect on her status. She could be working and helping you out.

 

Now, yes, she could temporarily return home if that is what you both want, but remember she can't stay out of country for too long without a re-entry permit.

Why does she need to leave? Wouldn't it be better for her to stay so she can work and take care of you? Besides, she can only leave the US for short periods. She cannot return permanently or even on a semi-permanent basis. Absences longer than 6 months are sketchy and she may be deemed to have abandoned her permanent resident status and your energy and money will have been wasted.

For her sisters graduation.

Well yes. After she has the green card, she can leave for short trips. Generally under 6 months is no problem.

 

What does that have anything with you having file for disability?

You getting disability and she’s going home after getting the green card is not connected in anyway. Help us connect the dots here.

Like others stated how the heck does you being on disability and her going to her home country for her family members graduation relate? As long as she has her AP or green card she can go back for the graduation . Assuming that’s the only reason -she’ll be back in the USA w no issues. Now if she’s going for 6+ months (clearly NOT for the purpose of going to a graduation) she can have trouble.

 

if you are collecting disability from work one would be inclined to believe you have health insurance through work, no? Doctor visits due to this disability should be covered/submitted. If your income level dropped so much from disability v regular take home pay and you meet the financial requirements for food stamps than yeah apply. Wouldn’t it make most sense for her to take care of you?! So many people try to be together because one is ill...

It has lots of variance, do you have any asset and number of member in your family?  SSA will require you to submit you bank statement, doctor statement, etc...

You can apply for benefits, nothing to do with her.

 

Sounds like you have not had your interview, you may need a Joint Sponsor.

I think everyone has the same understanding to your question on the first posting.

 

She will not get deported for financial reason
