    He needs an attorney to help him with this. But generally, he needs to make sure he documents showing that up till this point, the marriage is bona fide. So he should be making copies of any joint bills, evidence of co-habitation, trips together, family gatherings, letters from people stating how they knew the couple and how they knew they were in a real relationship. Insurance documents showing beneficiaries, car ownership, leases etc. He will need to show that the marriage WAS a valid one...

    You would have to take a copy of your file to an immigration attorney to have him/her review it to see if any action is possible.

    If it pings up on the post 9/11 enhanced background, she'll get into trouble for trying to lie. Have her request certified copies of the arrest report , charging document and final disposition. If the court does not retain those reqords, then, a statement from the clerk of court to that effect. Take those documents to an immigration attorney and ask them. You would be surprised at how many long time LPR's are getting hit returning from a trip out of the country or renewing their green card...

    I would consult with several business immigration attorneys as this will be a process stretching over several years and you want someone who is knowledgable and also is a good fit for you personally.

    An adjudication withhold is the same as a guilty plea. Hire a criminal defense attorney with knowledge of immigration law to advise you. Maybe try Art Rios or Mary Kramer. You've invested too much to risk it not getting great advice.

    If they suspect fraud was the basis for the original refugee status or the green card then yes, they can always instigate an action to revoke the citizenship. Usually, at this point you are fine, it is green card holders who travel to point of origin with asylum granted or refugee status who have trouble retaining their green cards.

    You might check with the embassy. i have dual Irish American citizenship though my Irish grandmother and the Irish consulate helped me- but that was in the 80's and in a very pre-9/11 and immigration fraud fraught world. But the attorney to help would be someone versed in UK or British law.
