What can you do if someone is using immigration sponsorship to gain leverage in a relationship? 1 Answers as of May 26, 2011

My friend has been married since 2007. The petition for the condition was filed in 2008. The removal was done in April 2010. In June 2010, his wife wrote a letter saying that she didn't want to sponsor him, filed a restraining order against him, and claimed he abused her. In October 2010, she did the same thing, but there is no proof of abuse. His wife had withdrew both restraining orders. Now, it is time for a second interview. The interview has since passed and a determination letter was sent to him. Because she tried to recant both of her "withdrawals", it was denied because she knew she made those allegations of abuse up. Immigration is going on with the removal proceedings. His wife has since then wrote a letter pleading; stating she was just having a bad day, etc. Also, because she is doing this, she is not mentally stable. She monitors every thing he does as if he is a child. Accuses him of doing wrong doing when he isn't. He doesn't have a life. And to avoid arguments, he does not endure in hobbies or activities. He has limited contact with his friends and family. Could he make a plea about her mental state? Is there anything he can do to obtain his citizenship without her? He is not abusive and is a very good worker and person. He does not deserve this. He wants to get a divorce because she is constantly making accusations about him doing wrong when he is not. This is creating some distress. He is possible of losing his job because his green card extension is about to expire because she wrote letters wanting to withdraw his support and sponsorship. Any suggestions?
