I applied for citizenship about 2 months ago based on marriage to a US citizen. I provided the USCIS with all my tax return transcripts that were filed jointly with my husband. I know that for the citizenship interview I will have to provide them with the last one that I am going to file soon. This year we wish to file married but separately so that the monthly repayment plan for my student loans won't be too much. Will that be a problem?
This is not an issue, do whatever makes sense for you. If You have evidence of Bona fide marriage, don’t worry about this.
Due to the nature of this forum, Attorney Maria J. Marty does not have all the information required to provide legal advice. Accordingly, her responses on Avvo are intended as general and not legal advice.
Married filing separately should not be the basis of denial when explained.
Is my answer "BEST ANSWER" and/or "HELPFUL"? If so, please acknowledge and mark it so. Mr. Smith has 25 years of successful U.S. immigration law experience with cases just like yours. Still, his response is general in nature, as all the facts are unknown to him, and cannot be construed as legal advice. Please retain immigration counsel to analyze your particular situation in order to receive specific advice. Specific answers requires knowledge of all the pertinent facts of your case. Any answers offered by Mr. Smith on Avvo are of a general nature only, and does not create an attorney-client relationship.
