Gainesville, VA asked in Immigration Law for Georgia

Q: Does a court case involving internal family financial dispute affect immigration for a foreign spouse on spouse visa?

One of my very close friends (him - a US citizen) married an engineer (her) residing in Vancouver. She has a course case involving a family financial dispute (between her and her mother) that was settled in the court and she paid all financial obligations. He is about to sponsor her on a spouse visa and wants to know if this court case would hamper chances of her immigrating to the US.

A: A financial dispute resulting in a civil court settlement between two family members ( mother and daughter) will not disqualify the daughter from obtaining an immigrant visa based on an immediate relative petition filed by a U.S. citizen spouse.
