My husband lied during the immigration interview about being married before or having a child in another country. Can immigration find out that he was married before and what happens if they find out? He just got his green card approved.
He could lose his green card for fraud if the green card would not have been approved had the truth come out. If this is a conditional green card, he needs to consult an experienced immigration attorney before filing the I-751.
If he ever files for citizenship and this information comes to light, it will prevent him from naturalizing on moral character grounds. He should not ever file for citizenship without a thorough review by an experienced immigration attorney.

Very bad move. The truth may come out in the future.

Simply put, that was a stupid move. And, it may not have been necessary to lie. He should talk to an immigration attorney.
