Verified
The fact that he has a green card and is not a US citizen should not have any effect on child custody or visitation if for some reason believe he will kidnap your child and go back to his country of origin, that might be considered, but not simply because he's from another country. He would have to have said something or done something to make you afraid. The custody will be determined based on the judge's perception of what is in your child's best interests. Immigration status is not considered relevant in determining a child's best interests. Do you have any other questions?
