My 2nd time using this site. Pretty good response the 1st time, hoping for another!
My friend married an illegal alien earlier this year. They've since separated d/t personal issues. He wants to divorce her but doesn't want to get her into any trouble with immigration. He doesn't want to file for annulment or anything like that. Just simply part ways cordially.
She entered the states legally w/ a valid visa but overstayed; about 20+ years ago. THEY have yet to file any paper work for adjustment of status...she's now out of status.
Will the divorce put the illegal alien at additional risk to be deported? What part of the process will be dangerous for her? How should they proceed without getting her into trouble? Do they need an attorney? Costs are an issue.
