Customer Question
for a green card through...
Hii, my name is ***** ***** I had filled my application for a green card through marriage and have received my interview date of 6/10/2015. My husband and I have been married for 4 years and 2 months. My problem is that my husband violated his parole and
he is in jail and will be in jail for another 3 months. What should I do now that my interview date is just a few days away? Can you advice me on which documentation I need to take to show proof that we have been married this long and are still married.

Hello, I am James. I will be helping you today. I do not get a salary here. But just like you, I want to get credit for doing my job. And you are the only person who can help me get credit by giving me a positive rating before leaving this site today. So please do not forget to do that.
Also, if you want me to be your personal immigration Expert, just write “FOR JAMES" at the beginning of your question and I will be sure to answer your questions as your personal Expert.
Were you given an option to reschedule the interview? That should be somewhere on the interview notice

I am looking to see if I have other alternatives other than reschedulling.....
Immigration Lawyer: Expert James, Lawyer replied 3 years ago
OK, thank you. What is your current immigration status in the US?

Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I am married to a US citizen and going through greenccard process. I have already received my work permit and travel documents , so my interview was the last step.
Immigration Lawyer: Expert James, Lawyer replied 3 years ago
I understand that. But what about your status prior to filing? And what crime was committed to send him to jail?
Ask Your Own Immigration Law Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
I was a student but my visa had expired prior to filling . He was on probation for probation foe a DUI which he violated.
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
and he also had child support issues

OK, thank you. Kindly remember to rate my customer service before leaving this site. When doing this, keep in mind that I do not make the law nor do I have any control over the outcome of this case. All I can do is provide you with a positive customer service experience, even it is not the outcome you wanted. I promise I will try to do that.
I highly recommend you get an attorney to accompany you to your interview. They should help you and your husband prepare an affidavit speaking to the bona fide, good faith basis of your marriage, as well as explaining that he is currently incarcerated. You should attend the interview with evidence of his incarceration as well. One thing to keep in mind is that you will probably have to find yourself a joint sponsor because now that your husband is in jail, his income will not be sufficient to support the I-864 affidavit of support that was filed on your behalf.
This is not impossible, but it will be an uphill battle.
I know these issues can be confusing. If you want to talk on the phone for a fee, I can send you an offer for that.
I hope I have answered your questions. Kindly rate my customer service with a positive rating so I get credit for doing my job. This is very important. You can do that by giving me 3 or more stars, or any of the smiling faces. And you can keep asking questions even after you have given a rating.
REMINDER: You are not rating the state of the law or the outcome of your situation, which I cannot control. You are rating my customer service. Believe me that I always want to give you good news. But if the outcome is not what you wanted, blame the government and the law, not me. I am only a messenger.
Negative ratings are reserved for Professionals who are rude or unprofessional. Giving me a negative rating does not help you get a different answer or outcome. So do not give a negative rating if you need more help, or if I misunderstood your question. Instead click REPLY so I can continue to assist you.
A BONUS is appreciated, if you feel I've earned it.
If you have questions in the future, write “FOR JAMES" in the question and I will be your personal Expert in this category.
Thank you!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
