My husband married for the purpose of getting a green card. We never lived together as he never moved with me (He promised he would) due to being in different state. I filed divorce as i knew he just wanted green card and didn't want to start family. He is illegally living here and hasn't left county after marriage based I-130 denied. Can i file a fraud through lawyer against him and if i do that will he be removed? I know exactly where he lives.He even told me he married for Green Card and he has also lied to USCIS previously that he had a job as he was on F1 and he didn't have a job. If i file the case how long will USCIS take to put him on removal list. His I-130 has denied for more than a month so the grace period of living country legallly has passed. I am thinking about notifying USCIS about his previous fraud regarding job as well as marriage fraud.
"I filed divorce as i knew he just wanted green card and didn't want to start family."
Does this mean that you also perpetrated a fraud by knowingly marrying him so that he could get his green card? Even if not, I think you need both spouses to be of the same mind for it to be marriage fraud. He may have married for the wrong reasons, but you if married him out of love then I don't think you have marriage fraud. If you married him for the wrong reason, then be careful that you don't get hoisted by your own petard.
