Revoking Permanent Green Card

26 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I entered into a bonafide marriage with a foreign national, we moved to the US past the minimum 2-year mark. The request for his green card took a long time and we had a lot of troubles. Last year, we separated but continued to try to make things work out. He was called for his permanent visa interview and we went together because we still wanted to work things out - or so he claimed. 

 

The very next month, he receives his permanent green card in the mail, and just a week later he decides he no longer wants to work on the marriage.

 

Fast forward another month, he proposes a legal separation. I agree to it because it wasn't yet divorce and I thought we still had a chance to work it out. 

 

Six months later, he requests a divorce. And I have reasons to suspect there has been someone on the side since around the time of our green card interview.

 

What can I do to divorce but rightfully request his green card be revoked in the process?

 

The marriage entered into was bonafide, but the last year has been murky and I feel defrauded into attending the green card interview while already separated (under the guise that him being a legal resident would save our marriage).

Unless you have something a lot stronger than belief that he planned this the whole time, there is nothing you can do other than divorce and move on. 

 

You freely chose to attend his interview. 

Yes, I did, under false pretenses. There must be something that I can do, via a lawyer at least?

Divorce and move on. The Greencard is his business now and no longer your concern.

Yup... this is the risks people take when dating internationally and sponsoring someone... everyone always senses something is wrong but goes through with it anyways and then BAM! and then they wonder what they can do to deport/remove/revoke their estranged spouses status... unfortunately, for you like most others, unless there is substantial, concrete evidence of fraud and deceit... not much at all you can do about it. Can ask lawyers, inform USCIS... but they are now an LPR and they can do whatever they please and continue their path all the way to citizenship if they wish, and now bring family members in... and you're still on the hook for the I-864 support affidavit also.... all because of ignoring the signs,... and don't know how often they actually go after the USC for the affidavit of support if needed, but a member on here recently was sued by the state of California for money owed because his estranged spouse left and had gone on welfare, so the state came a knocking for their money back.

A lawyer does not have legal authority to have a permanent resident's status revoked. Like already, mentioned, there is nothing more you can do. You ex husband, with the help of you, has proven to the government that the marriage was bonifide. You went to the interview to help make this claim. If you feel that it was not right then it is too late now. The green card has been issued. It takes a ton of evidence (and likely physical evidence such as recordings of your ex husband admitting to fraud) to have a permanent status  revoked, and even then it is not guaranteed.

 

We have seen so many cases like this where soon after receiving a GC, the immigrant leaves the marriage. And almost never do we see them successfully deported. This is why the biggest suggestion is to focus on moving on with your life. Because it could be a futile attempt to have him removed.

Nothing you can do unless you have absolute proof that he committed immigration fraud.  Other than your gut feelings, do you have any proof?

 

Having someone on the side/cheating does not equal fraud.  Unless you have documented evidence to submit to USCIS, there is nothing you are able to do to  him immigration-wise.  It takes more than just a statement from you claiming any nefarious intentions---they will want to see actual proof.

You said it yourself- you entered a bonafide marriage. Then you supported him through the interview. You cant do anything now.

As the saying goes, living well is the best revenge. Knowing that it drives my ex-husband crazy that I am very happy in my new relationship and on my way to remarrying feels great! As was said above, divorce and move on. You never know what is waiting for you on the other side. 😊

You made the decision, his motivations were clear and you still went ahead with it, if there is anyone to blame here unfortunately it's you.😩 😢 I don't think there's anything you can do about this now, you ignored red flags and now you pretty much can do nothing, he already has his greencard, I am sooooo sorry.
