I separated from my husband for a while and received foodstamps, now back together will that affect his green card process?

Dallas, TX |

In the time separated when I was receiving benefits HHSC had sent our case to child support attorney and opened a case for him. I never returned paperwork so he was never asked to pay. Once we got back together we had to sign papers to supposedly close the case. Will that affect us in any way? Will that come up when we do the background check?

  1. It raises an issue regarding your affidavit of support. In addition, USCIS is often reluctant to approve a petition based on a shakey marriage that may not last long.

    The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.
