also, the I-865 Afidavit of Support is a contract between you & the US government, not between you & your wife. It states that if the spomsored alien obtains certain public benefts that you can be required to pay those benefits back to the government. Those benefits include TANF or food stamps, or welfare.benefits.
I see that I recieved a negative rating. I was hoping to answer your question more fully by asking a question regarding the removal of conditions on your wife's green card. I aked for a little more information but instead received a negative rating. Is there some way I can answer your question more completely? what question would you like for me to answer?

Since you are in active divorce proceedings,then you may not want to join in (or sign) the joint petition to remove theconditions on your wife's green card. In your divorce complaint, did you allegethat you believe she married you ONLY to gain a marriage immigration benefit?If you did not, then talk to your attorney about amending your complaint to addthose facts. That is something important that you should have a part of therecord of the court. You may also talk to your divorce attorney to amend yourcomplaint to file for an Annulment based on fraud if you believe that shefraudulently enticed you to marry her only to receive an immigration benefit(green card) and that she has not lived with you for a very long time. If your spouse filed the I-751 Removal ofConditions on her own without you signing it, then she will have to prove USCISthat the marriage is "bone fide" and real.
There is a tip line that you can contact thegovernment to tell USCIS/ICE that you believe she defrauded you and married youonly to gain a marriage immigration benefit. Here is the link to the online tipline form:
Here is the telephone # XXXXX call them to speakto a representative. Be prepared to provide hem details about your marriage andthe I-130/I-485 that were filed to get her green card. Call(NNN) NNN-NNNN/strong>
You may also put together a "fraudpacket" and send a copy of your divorce papers and any other evidence that youhave showing that she moved out, that she is just using you for money, and that your marriage is not bone fide. Yourattorney could help you put this together with a letter and mail it to thelocal USCIS field office that handles her green card case.
TANF is Temporary Assistance for NeedyFamilies is another word for welfare benefits. If she has never received anypublic assistance, then she can not threaten you with enforcing the I-864 tosupport her. Actually, it is a "3rd party contract" and it isbetween you and the government-not between you and your spouse. Only thefederal or state government agency that provided welfare or food stamp orhealth care benefits to her could possibly sue you but ONLY IF after they askedyou reimburse them for the value of the benefits she used. If you refuse torepay the agency for the value of the benefits, then the agency has the optionto sue you. However, it is not automatic and is rather unlikely that they willdo so. In order to find out if your state, AZ, willallow your wife to sue on this I-864 "3rd party contract" you shouldask your AZ licensed divorce attorney.
