Hello. I'm trying to get some answers for someone I know. She came on fiance visa, got married within 90 days, applied for adjustment, got her conditional green card in July, 2021. Her 2 sons (15 and 17) arrived to US on K2 in May, 2021. Now they need to adjust their status. Here is the problem: the citizen husband started drinking and abusing his wife. It became worse after the kids came. The police got involved recently: they helped the wife and the kids to get out of the house. Now, they are staying with friends and don't want to go back to him anymore even though he's asking them to, making a lot of promises. But this happened a few times, and of course, he never kept his promises. Question: will the kids be able to adjust their status without him? Obviously, he won't sponsor them if they don't go back to him. Thank you in advance!
