: If you are a victim of domestic violence or psychological abuse (extortion might qualify too), you likely do not need to remain married to your spouse or pay him/her to get your green card. You do have options, so talk to an Immigration attorney. There are likely to be low-cost immigration legal services available somewhere in your area. Ask around and search online. : In the meantime, you can look up the instructions to these forms at ("immigration forms" tab) to get an idea of what might fit your situation: I-360 (to file for status as a VAWA petitioner) or I-751 (using a battered spouse waiver). USCIS allows fee waivers for some forms.

If someone is married to a US citizen can he remain in the US regardless of his own Visa status?

The person needs to have permanent resident status. Marrying a US citizen does not automatically give you citizenship or different visa status. The requirements are having been a legal permanent resident for five years. Or being a legal permanent resident and married to a US citizen for three years. The person can then apply for US citizenship.

What would happen if husband living in the state of Florida is deported and the couple has one child and properties mortgage is in wife's name only and warranty deed is in both husband and wife's name?

The child would remain in the wife's custody if she is not deported or is a US citizen. All legal documents would remain "as is" until or unless the husband agrees to have his name removed. However, it would be complicated if he is out of the country. And yet, with his name on the documents. he would remain liable for payments, too. The wife would also remain liable for payments. This could lead to problems if she is not the primary breadwinner. If she cannot pay, the bank could foreclose.
