I started working this year and filed my taxes for last year. I got a tax refund but I was not employed anywhere last year. I am a F-1 student, will this refund affect my chances of getting green card?

You should consult with an immigration attorney though...Read more »

What you describe is real life that repeats itself throughout the country in every state. You need to retain an experienced matrimonial and immigration attorney otherwise you will be in over your head. No hypotheticals about it!
Entry into Canada requires that all persons carry both proof of citizenship and proof of identity. A valid U.S. passport, passport card, or NEXUS card satisfies these requirements for U.S. citizens.
