CAN he be deported??? He used me for a green card.

Asked over 1 year ago - Medford, MA

My ex - husband used me for a green card . We were together for 6 months , then separated and he didn't let me get divorced because it looked bad for his green card so I had to wait another 6 months to file for divorce . I was scared of him and still am , he threatened me . I sent a letter to LUSCIOUS explaining what happened , he cheated on me right after he got the conditional green card . When they see my letter , and when he applies for the green card , what are the chances he will be deported or denied the green card ?

    Answered . USCIS will most likely not even consider your letter, if it ever gets to your ex's file that is (and that's a big IF..)

    There are numerous exceptions to the joint filing/signature requirement at the I-751 removal of conditions stage. All your ex will do is, with the help of a sharp immigration lawyer, invoke one of those "exceptions" , write a great declaration which he will attach to the I-751, provide letters from various people and have the "condition" removed at the interview stage, which he will most likely attend with his lawyer present.

    As my esteemed colleague remarked, it is time to move on with your life (and be more careful next time..)

    Answered . I do not practice immigration law, nor do I practice in your jurisdiction, so I decline to comment on your Green Card question. However, I do believe you should seek a protective - or restraining - order against him if you have reasonable cause to believe he is a danger to you.

    Answered . Hello,

    I agree with my colleagues that it is rare someone who receives a conditional green card will end up being denied residency and/or deported based only on the claims of a former spouse. As well, claims of marriage fraud can be risky since the person being accused may try to counter-claim that the U.S. citizen or resident spouse was somehow involved in the alleged fraud, thus provoking an investigation into your conduct more so than his.

    Of course, someone who is convicted of domestic violence, stalking, or other serious crimes risks having his/her residency status (green card) revoked and being deported as a result of the criminal conviction. Thus, I second the suggestion of other colleagues that if he continues to threaten you or otherwise conduct himself in a way that makes you feel at risk, the better course of action likely would be to contact the police to report the alleged criminal conduct and request a protective order.

    Best wishes,
    Jennifer

    Answered . I already answered this question. If he was threatening you soon after marriage, but before the interview, then you should have called the police and ICE at that time.

    At this point, after the approval, you appear like a frustrated and jilted spouse, whether you like it or not. The believability of your claim was diminished by your delay. That is why you should move on.
