Does claiming Mexican dependents on taxes affect visa process?
My husband has always claimed his nieces/nephews (Mexican citizens) on his tax return. Although I cannot imagine why, I'm wondering if this in any way might affect his future application for a green card. They are legitimately related to him, and he does send money. I know you are supposed to submit 1 years tax return, but for what purpose?
