am Sudanese Coptic Cristian. I had separated from wife before i came to USA (by the lottery) , got my green card on January 13th,2011. got divorce from the court on August 2012, Now I reconciled with my wife, I have child 3 years, we need the child to grow among us. I am afraid that they face a lot of discrimination and persecution without me there
Processing can take a while, as in several years, where you file as a green card holder. In 2016, you can file for citizenship by naturalization. Perhaps, that may speed up matters, but it is unclear. In addition, it is unclear whether your wife can enter the U.S. on a dual intent visa, such as an H1-b, where she has an offer to work in a professional position.
I strongly recommend an appointment or teleconference with a competent and experienced immigration attorney, so that you know what can be done. Otherwise, you may risk losing your green card status, where you leave the U.S. Good luck.
