Shouldn't my ex have to look for a job if I'm supporting him per Form I-864?
The legal doctrine of "mitigating damages" has not been applied to beneficiaries of Form I-864 Affidavit of Support.
I married a man I met while traveling in Europe, and sponsored him for a U.S. green card. Stupid me, I must have been blinded by love, because I hardly read what I was signing. Now we're divorced, and I discover that by signing Form I-864, I was promising to keep supporting him even after the marriage is over. So, he's already told me he plans to make me send him money while he continues living here in the United States. I'm furious – he's perfectly capable of going out and getting a job. He even speaks English. Shouldn't he have to try before I'm forced to step in and send him money?
