Ask an Immigration Lawyer. Get an Answer ASAP.
It's my husband's whim. He has his own views about taxes. I have to get a clear answer about the potential negative and positive effect of us declaring taxes separately but as married people , or us doing a joint declaration.
I am not happy with your answer. The list of requirements you made for me I already have and it is available on any free website talking about obtaining the GC through the marriage.
I have asked one specific question and need an elaborate answer to it. Even you listed a joint tax declaration. So, I need the explanation on the difference if it's not joint.
what are the valid reasons?
My rating was honest. As I said, I have paid money to get one concrete advice which I still haven't gotten. I am still very dissatisfied with the answer. You can ask your supervisor to contact me.
It is not an incomplete answer. I just need for you to tell me what he will tell the immigration officer at the interview when he is asked about that. Why is that so difficult?You are looking for a YES it will be a problem or a NO it will not be a problem but when you deal with an officer's discretion, a black or white answer like that is not always the case. It's the totality of the situation that they look at. So PLEASE use my 10 years+ of experience to your advantage. These are my favorite cases to work on and what I have the most experience in. So just let me know what he will say or what you think he will say when asked about it and I will give you the best answer that I can under the law.
Ma'am, I have helped you and will continue to help you if you would just tell me what your husband will say or what you think he will say at the interview. Please let me know. Thank you.
Well, I have given you a correct and concrete answer. If the rest of the evidence is strong and the reason for filing the taxes married but separately is reasonable, then you should not have an issue. I don't know what more you would like me to tell you. Please do not forget to rate me positively. Since I am not paid a salary, it is the only way that I get paid. You are not charged again and I will not abandon you after you rate me positively if you have additional questions. Thank you.
Hello. I'm just following up with you to see how everything is going. Did my answer help? Please let me know. Thank you!
