Q. Can the sponsor of a green card beneficiary file a petition to have that green card rescinded?
A: The sponsor of a green card can file a form trying to get the green card rescinded, but that does not mean that will actually happen. USCIS is understaffed and overloaded, so there is no guarantee it will even be looked at. You also need to have an extremely good reason or you may have significant legal problems of your own.
Q. Is there a different process for seeking an annulment versus a divorce?
A: Depending on a variety of factors obtaining an annulment can be more difficult than a divorce. The process is very similar. You need to retain an experienced matrimonial (divorce) attorney. Pick the best attorney you can find and remember one rule: a good attorney is generally never cheap, and a cheap attorney is generally never good so don't choose based on price. With modern technology, you can be represented by any high-quality attorney in New Jersey irrespective of geography.

You need to retain an experienced matrimonial attorney to represent your interests in this matter. You are also emotionally involved.
