Friends divorce. Does it effect my green card process if I will be a witness in divorce case?

Asked over 1 year ago - San Diego, CA

My friend is going through a divorce, he asked me to be a witness for his character as his wife is putting false allegations of him being an abusive husband. Does it effect my green card or immigration process? He also obtained restraining orders against his wife few weeks ago, could she really pass with this kind of fake allegations of abuse? They were married for only 6 months.. What would the husband owe his wife in best and worst case? She already took away 95% of the things from home when he was not there without telling him. What can he do? He is already in debt of around 5000$ and do not have any assets. His car is on lease and he is renting an apartment. They were married in India but getting divorce in CA, does CA have any specific rules?
