My US citizen husband filed a spouse visa and green card application for me. But then he left me. Will my green card application be automatically denied?

The answer is no, not necessarily. You may still be eligible to obtain lawful permanent resident status. The most important question is whether the marriage was entered into in good faith.

Can a lawful permanent resident sponsor their brother or sister for an immediate visa?

Unfortunately, the answer to this question is no. A lawful permanent resident must wait until they become a U.S.citizen before they are eligible to sponsor anyone other than their own spouse or child for a visa.

Sriram Devanathan

im is a great attorney who always has his human side “ON”. The clients come first to him. When approached for time sensitive issues, he was readily available and was prompt. I have had to reach out to him for myself & have recommended him to others. He always welcomed everyone and gave patient hearing. And he would not mind recommending other attorneys’ if he feels that they would better serve that particular case. Even if it means one less client for him. That sums up who Jim is. Thank you Jim!

Justin Charboneau

Jim and his team are extremely knowledgeable individuals. It is great to have someone like this on your side. I have and will continue to recommend Hacking Law Practice, LLC to anyone who needs legal advice on immigration issues.

Bouchra Aanouz

This firm was amazing helping me with my husband’s case. Jim and his team were very responsive to all my questions and concerns. i wish I had consulted them earlier as my husband’s case was stuck in Administrative Processing for over a year and a half. Two months after I gave my case to Jim, my husband was granted his visa. Would definitely recommend them and already have recommended them to my friends.
