I refinanced my mortgage at the time of the US Economic Crisis, in 2007, and after a few months I left the country because of the US Economic situation (I was there illegally) and because I lost my job and couldn't pay for it. After 14 years of the incident my daughter who is american will sponsor me for the Green Card. Will that situation have an impact on my application?
Will have no bearing on the I-130, immediate family petition but the foreclosure would be on your record
Immigration Law, Adjunct Professor at The John Marshall Law School (2014-2017). It is your responsibility to retain a lawyer to analyze the facts specific to your particular situation in order to give you specific advice. Specific answers will require cognizance of all pertinent facts about your case. Any answers offered on Avvo are of a general nature only, and are not meant to create an attorney-client relationship.

Foreclosure implies a judgment against you. Any judgment or simply a lawsuit can cause concerns or questions for USCIS. It's not a criminal issue, so it's not as bad. But yet, it could be an area that will be looked at.
