Hey, i m married and received a conditional green card so i would like to know if filing the taxes separately with my spouse will affect the removing of the conditional green card and apply for the 10 years.
I would suggest that you contact and retain qualified immigration counsel. While filing your tax returns separately is not dispositive of the case, it woudl be preferable if you filed the return as "married"...The examiner will take note of all of the evidence you present. If you have a child together, own property together, and or joint car and health insurance this would all mitigate against the tax returns being filed separately. It also matters who writes affidavits in support of your application and how extensively written they are. Contact an immigration attorney who can help you prepare a strong filing. Good luck!
I agree with my colleagues. However, If there are legitimate tax reasons for filing the tax return as married filing separate, then perhaps Immigration may find this to be acceptable. However, certainly as my colleagues have stated this may nonetheless Cause some adjudication issues.
