One has nothing to do with the other.  This person doesn't have a green card here, so it is not going to help either one of you.

 

Immediately contact an immigration attorney to determine your best steps -- it may require each of you to return to your home countries.  Try www.attorneypages.com and check his or her record at the New York State Bar.
