Green Card/Visa/Immigration status
I returned back to Australia a week before Xmas 2015 with the intention of returning to the US by June 2016. In June 2016, I was making plans to return when my eldest daughter broke up with her partner that resulted in not booking my US flight. She came crying in a terrible state of mind, I must confess that my wife and I were very concerned about her mental state.
Her ex-partner had fathered another child when he was with our daughter. This made her really angry, distraught and feeling betrayed when she thought her relationship was fine. She did hint in early 2016 that there were a few little problems which every couple experiences in their relationship. Learning of her partner's infidelity changed everything between them forever.
So I had to remain in Australia to give our daughter some moral support in her shattered life.
She has been seeing a counselor to help her out thru her crisis. She has some good days and some bad days. There is also a problem over custody of their young daughter.
I tried to return to the US before xmas 2016 so that wouldn't impact my green card status. Something kept knorring at the back of my mind to remain until our daughter's situation improves.
I wrote to the US Consulate in Melbourne asking if they could grant me an extension on my green card on compassionate grounds. I told them that I could provide medical proof as my daughter and I have the same family doctor. They replied in friendly terms but referred me to the US Immigration website. I am sick and tired of being referred onto websites.
Mr Trump's immigration changes have thrown my plans into turmoil.
I want to return to the US where I don't lose my green card and don't have hassles with immigration in entering the country. My wife has no problems as she is a US citizen. Please pray for me that I have no problems. My green card means a lot to me. I need some luck..... I hope the big boss upstairs opens the right door for me to enter easily into America. Please pray for me..Thanks
