No, this should not cause you an issue to get a green card through a U.S. Citizen spouse.

Let me know if you need anything else, but please do not forget that positive rating. 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.
