I originally wrote this in the Family Law/Divorce category but it was suggested I post here.
I am writing on behalf of a family member. He has been married to a Green Card
Holder from Europe for about 10 years in state of CA (married in US,
maintained residence in CA throughout entire marriage). He wants to
file divorce. They have no children together. She has 3 adult children
from previous relationship, all which moved to US, none of whom gained
American citizenship... none of them have even applied for it.
Child 1 has been in US for about 13 years (mid 20's in age). He also has a criminal record, but I believe everything was plead down from a felony.
Children 2 & 3 have been in US about 10 years (both in 30's). Both have minor children with US citizens but are not married.
A poster in other board felt wife will have no problem keeping green card because marriage exceeded 3 years. I believe both Children 2&3 could apply for citizenship based off their children? (Please correct me if I am wrong). What about Child 1? Would he likely be denied a renewal? Sorry, not sure how these things work, thanks!
