A: This makes little sense. I strongly recommend an appointment with a competent and experienced immigration attorney to discuss the concern.

The above is general information, not legal advice, and does not create an attorney client relationship.

A: The proper and correct manner of filing your federal tax return can be determined by your CPA /accountant and your immigration attorney. The federal tax return will come into play when you file the FORM I-864 with USCIS or with the NVC and can definitely impact the process.
