Hello, I have question that borders me a lot and I need help please. I'm married to a US citizen.

We recently had a beautiful baby together. I'm yet to receive my Work permit card and will be expecting my green card also. And we've only been married for about 11 months but now my wife is trying to get rid of me because she already has a baby now, which was all she ever wanted. And she's threatening to send me back to Africa where i have nothing no more because I have been in Italy since 2012 and was doing well before we met on a dating site. Just to cut it short, my question is If we get a divorce! Will I be sent back to Africa? Definitely not italy because she talked out on renewing my. Italian ID and its been expire. So now that I already have a child here or I can still be allowed to stay? And what will be my conditions? Any immigration lawyer should help me on this please

A: It is unclear from your question what your status is in the United States but if your solely eligible to be in the US because you are married and then you get divorced, the fact that you have a child here is irrelevant and you will be deported. You should immediately hire and immigration lawyer and a divorce lawyer so that the two can work together as I anticipate you will need them both to remain in the United States. Good luck!
