My soon to be ex-husband petitioned me to be an LPR. He filed an affidavit of support together with his mom for me. I am a victim of domestic violence abuse and he kicked me out of our house and he also filed for divorce. I've read that I can sue them for cutting off their support. How do I do that and which court should I file it with?
Sorry to add this late... I have been an LPR for 8 years now. I am planning to obtain US citizenship soon. If I file for citizenship, would I still need my soon to be ex-husband?
I think you may have a claim based on the affidavit of support

You need to be resident for 5 years to be eligible to apply for citizenship. You have been a LPR for more than 8 years, so you meet this part of the requirements.
As to the affidavot of support, no you cannot sue him for the affidavit of support. The affidavit of support is a contract between your husband and the government not you.

You can not sue his based on the Aff. of Suport, if you have other grounds there is not enough detail, if he caused you physical injury you might be able to sue for that. Consult a civil attorney that is not an immigration issue. However if you are eligible to adjust to citizenship you definitly should.
