My husband has a felony for murder (he is already served his sentence). In fact, it was a self-defence, but the court delivered its verdict on the basis of national hatred crime because of political views of my husband. Soon we are going to apply for Green Card for me. May I have some problems with that considering my husband's felony?
If your husband is a US citizen and he is applying for you, he should be able to apply despite the murder conviction. USCIS does not care much about a US citizen's criminal history unless it has to do with drug trafficking (if the foreign national can be tied to it) or crimes involving criminal sexual acts. You should consult with an immigration attorney just to make sure everything is okay for your husband to file for you and that you both understand the process. It is more complicated than it seems.
This is not legal advice. This response does not establish an attorney-client relationship.
You have to speak with an attorney. How are you getting a green card? Through marriage to your US citizen husband? Or through some other means. In any case, you're going to have discuss the details with a lawyer. Good luck. Sounds like you've been through a lot.
Assuming that your husband is a US citizen, he can sponsor you for a green card.
Mr. Shusterman's (former INS Trial Attorney, 1976-82) response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case. Mr. Shusterman's statement above does not create an attorney/client relationship.
