will my application for child support affects his application for change of status? he is undocumented but got married in the middle of our relationship. what concequencence will happen to him and thire application for green card?
USCIS may doubt the validity of his marriage if they are apprised that he had a child with another woman. I do not know if you filing for child support would necessarily trigger this inquiry, but he is required to disclose all children (regardless of their immigration status) to USCIS. His failure to do can be deemed a material misrepresentation which in turn can result in a permanent bar to admission. If he does not have an immigration attorney, he would be best advised to consult an attorney about the matter.
Your child is entitled to child support. As for his immigration process, it is quite complicated. If his marriage was not in good faith, then he will not be able to obtain his adjustment of status. Contact experienced family lawyer to assist you with the family law related issues.
Child support application is a separate issue from his immigration application. The question is whether he had formally entered into divorce with you before marrying the other US citizen. If he had a formal divorce with you before his second marriage, it should not affect his immigration application. The USCIs may question about it but it is not going to be a problem if he can show a genuine marriage with his second wife.
I have dealt with a lot of I-130 application, quite a lot of beneficiaries have married two or three times.
