Hi all, new poster here & I am concerned about the application process.
About us: I'm from the United States & my wife is from the Dominican Republic. We've been legally married since 2003, after six years of dating. We have the marriage certificate from Costa Rica & we've already proved we are legally married once while applying for her US Visa a few years ago. We also have three daughters who were born in Costa Rica, but are US Citizens.
A year ago my business in the Dominican Republic went broke & we decided to move back to the United States for good. We arrived in July & her Visa expired in August. I didn't have the $1400 to apply for her Green Card until now. We've been receiving food support to help us get by. We're settled now in the states & we have her interview tomorrow afternoon to turn in our paperwork for her Green Card. Here's the issue....Since I'm unemployed & don't have any money left after relocating our family to the US, can I sponsor her? I don;t really have any family who can or would be able to sponsor her. It's been very difficult for me to work with her being illegal because she can't drive or get around which makes me responsible for every aspect of our daily life. I'm 6 months short of my degree & am returning to college in January.
What type of response should I expect? What should I be prepared for?
Thanks in advance, Jim Mason
