    Based on your very vague question, the answer is no. Attorneys can turn down a potential client for a number of reasons. Just because a potential client may be willing to pay the required fee, does not necessarily mean that the attorney will be willing to represent said potential client.

    You have a few issues here. First, your immigration issue. To remove the conditions from your green card you must file a joint petition with your husband. If you divorce before you are able to remove the conditions, you must demonstrate to USCIS that your marriage was real but you couldn't live with your husband for whatever reason.

    I agree with my colleagues. I also would like to add that denial of your DACA application depends on many factors. We don't know what you were cited with, if it was a misdemeanor or a felony and how many prior misdemeanors you've had. Therefore, we can't possibly answer your question.

    Spousal support isn't as clear cut as most people think. There's a lot of factors involved to determine whether spousal support is appropriate. I suggest you meet with a local attorney to look at all the details of your case.

    This question should be asked to an estate planning attorney. I've revised your practice area to reflect that so you may have your question answered.
