Orlando, FL asked in Child Support, Divorce and Immigration Law for Florida

Q: I have a green card through marriage, is conditional and is due to renewal on august 13 2021. Wife wants divorce.

My wife wants a divorce and possibly report me to uscis like she did before when we were together(she sent an email to uscis that she thought I was with her just for the green card which is not true). She wants me to leave our house and me to remove all my belongings and is threatening me with trespassing if i come back.

She is telling people that I married her just to get the green card.

The marital property are a house and a car she(both $ were wired from her bank account), but im in the mortgage but not the loan due to my bad credit, also a $8000 semi truck I purchased last year.

I need help in case we go through a divorce and also immigration guidance.(i have a vawa case not open but seating on my paralegals table, this was when she was being very abusive and controlling).

We also have a 1.5yr old daughter.

A: Sorry to hear about all this. You need to talk with an immigration lawyer urgently and you also need to talk with a family lawyer since you shay she is talking about a divorce and you have shared assets as well as a child.

You need to be careful because you do not want a criminal court case against you if the situation gets worse. Already you said she is threatening you and telling persons things.

Justia has a lawyer directory as does the American Immigration Lawyers Association.

A: I agree that you need lawyers with two different specialties. A family lawyer for the divorce issues and an immigration lawyer for the immigration issues.

A: Consider scheduling a consultation with a competent and experienced immigration attorney. Many attorneys during the pandemic, which hopefully is fast approaching an end here in the United States, offer online video or telephonic consultations. Such an attorney can evaluate best your facts and offer advice in the privacy of a consultation.

A: My suggestion is an experienced immigration attorney in the Orlando area who, as a part of the immigration practice, can represent you in the dissolution wherein the I-864 is likely to come into play.

The dissolution is an important aspect and a supporting document for the VAWA petition.

A: If you acquired the house, car and semi truck during the marriage then it is likely to be marital property so you should get half of everything. You are not trespassing and do not have to move out of the home right now. You should also consult with an immigration lawyer.
