I do not know of any reason why your participation in an apartment lottery would have any effect on your husband's green card case.


I do not see how one thing has any impact on the other. As you already know, when its time to submit the affidavit of support, your husband will need a joint sponsor as your income is a little low.

P.S. I hope you are doing better and recovering after the storm. Best of luck to you and your family.

No reason why it should influence the green card process, as long as you will provide sponsorship to your husband.
