Married to a non-resident. Should I file jointly or separately?
Asked in Long Beach, CA - over 3 years
I'm in the process of filing for my wife's green card. She came to the US in Aug 08, now living with me, unemployed still. Would it matter whether file jointly or separately on my taxes for immigration purposes? Please advise.

From an immigration perspective, it is far more helpful if the taxes are filed jointly. Speak to a tax professional concerning any tax consequences of this, and an immigration attorney for assistance with the filing.
