After 3 years with my husband he has been acting crazy and abusive I decided to divorce him. He petitioned me for 2 year and 10 year perminant gc which I have received. I am very paranoid because even though the marriage was in good faith he is vindictive. He cheated on me and I refused to have sex with him for months because I was worries for my health and safety and disgusted. He texted me a bunch of texts about how I've used him for a gc and took my phone a bunch of times and replied from 'me' admitting it! I am furious and mad. Not only has he cheated and forced me through emotional turmoil to end the marriage, but it seems like he is collecting incorrect evidence to get my card taken away.
Please advise me what to do.
1. Would these messages stand up in front of an immigration judge
2. How would he even go about sending this info and would they look at it
He is very good at feeling sorry for himself and playing the victim
I am sorry to hear the issues that you are going through.
To answer your first question, if you have to go in front of an immigration judge, you may have to explain what your ex was doing. As with any evidence, the judge will apply whatever weight he feels appropriate.
To answer your second question, he may report you to ICE being a vindictive ex-spouse as you describe him.
You may want to retain an experienced immigration attorney to help you, and walk you through a strategy.
I doubt whether your crazy ex's action would result in you being placed in removal proceedings. If you were, however, you could certainly introduce this as evidence.
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.
He cannot do anything to you as long as you have the permanent GC. Get your divorce and move on. You can then apply for citizenship after 4 years and 9 months. All the best.
