I am filing for permanent residency for my husband and I was wondering if filing taxes joint but separate will be an issue?

Filed under: Immigration Tax return

We are trying to figure out whether filing taxes as married but separate will affect our chances of my husband receiving his residency. I have been told that they want to see taxes filed married and joint? Please advise..
