A person within the U.S. illegally has limited legal rights therefore, a bankruptcy petition is not possible. Persons found to be unlawfully present for 1-12 months will be subject to deportation and barred from applying for legal entry for 3 years. Persons found to be unlawfully present in the U.S. for 12 months or longer are subject to deportation and barred from applying for reentrance for 10 years. Persons violating Immigration laws who are apprehended by authorities are not eligible for bail and will be held in federal confinement until the trial date.

The same thing that would happen to a citizen, the person will be taken into custody by authorities and jailed in a local and/or state and/or federal facility. The difference between the citizen and the immigrant obviously would be that after the unlawfully present immigrant has served the imposed sentence(s) he or she will be deported and permanently barred from entering the U.S.

What happens if you abandon your illegal immigrant spouse?

Since marriage to a US citizen confers US citizenship upon the spouse, it is not clear how your spouse is an illegal immigrant unless you are also an illegal immigrant (not that you actually said that either of you are living in the US, but that seems to be the most likely interpretation). I also don't know why you are abandoning your spouse instead of getting a divorce. Nothing will necessarily happen; it depends upon what action the abandoned spouse may choose to take. If you are sued, then there could be various consequences depending upon the outcome of the suit.

Could an illegal immigrant who married a US citizen be deported if he files the i-485 and the INS sees he's illegal?

It depends on how the immigrant entered the U.S. If they entered legally, then no they do not have to leave the country. However, if they entered ilegally, they would have to their country of origin. What will happen here: Since you filed an i-485, I imagine that you have a lawyer (stupid not to have one). After a couple of packets, you will receive a visa, and an appointment with the immigration in your country. You will then have to go to your country, and report to them. You wife/husband will need to show how it would cause them hardship for you not to be here (think pshycologist papers,schooling, children, etc.). If you have not had any major problems here in the US, They will then grant you a visa to get back, and your residency. Hope this helps. This is how I am getting it done. I know that it's a burden to have to go back, but think of it this way... chance to meet the in-laws. LOL

If you are filing for bankruptcy, and you try to cosign -- two things can happen. 1. the lender will turn you down. 2.
