USCIS – Immigration Fraud. Avoid Green Card Blues.
Immigration fraud is high on many scammers “to-do” list.
Coveting the 2-year green card, then the 10 year is behind marriage scam.
The ultimate goal: permanent access to the USA.
I thought we both married for love. I did. He didn’t. Even after he moved out it hadn’t clicked that all he wanted from me was a green card. Classic. By the end I knew he lied to me, betrayed me, stole from me and was plain nuts; a monster with no regard for me. Yet, still, I didn’t grasp that his entire intention had been to scam me for a green card until my annulment attorney enlightened me. Naturally, the attorney had seen this before. Not me. I was foggy minded from the promises of a con man.
‘Conditional Adjusted Status’ granted by USCIS is a two year ‘green card’
based on marriage to a U.S. Citizen.
Normally, this is a beautiful thing.
My new husband got his 2 year conditional adjusted status. The form used for this is: I-485. You will see in the official instructions what’s required of the US citizen and the immigrant. Proof of income and US Federal tax forms going back 3 years prior to the application by the sponsoring spouse are part of the information we turn in. – There is an income minimum for the sponsoring spouse: a fairly low income minimum that must have been met all 3 of these previous years.
All forms needed to apply are free and available on the U.S. Immigration website. Don’t pay any third-party for forms or to handle the process for you – unless you use a verified, legitimate immigration attorney. There are people who scam people trying to immigrate.
There are two phases of residency in the process of immigrating.
The initial green card, or conditional adjusted status, is for two years. Then 6 months before the 2 year card expires, a 10 year card can be applied for. The immigrating person applies for this step. — This is the phase immigrating scammers hope to be able to complete with a still controlled and subdued wife standing by them. Proof of having ‘married in good faith’ and of a married life together is required. – There are fees – but during this magical 10 year time-period immigrants can apply for citizenship – whether still married or not.
People committing immigration fraud will be denied this 10 year card.
You must prove you ‘married in good faith’.
A divorce is one thing – an annulment means marriage fraud. When an annulment is awarded by a Judge, it means fraud was committed by the Respondent. However – a Judge does not then press immigration fraud charges. The immigration fraud needs to be reported to USCIS by the spouse who has been scammed. They won’t be particularly surprised – they are familiar with the cycles of love scam.
Report Immigration Fraud and Marriage Fraud to USCIS
USCIS is on the side of the U.S. Citizen in both love & fraud circumstances.
The sponsoring spouse must report the fraud to USCIS. Speak from the heart. I was advised by an immigration attorney to state: I had loved him when we married. I realized he didn’t love me. He did not marry me in good faith. I had discovered he was not who he said he was. He had several wives, children, criminal activity. And in summary I believed he married me only to gain access to the US. — I was able to include that I was not his first US wife. – In other words – he had tried this before. If you are divorced or the marriage is annulled, include copies of those documents.
I reported to USCIS both before and after our annulment. This image is one of 2 separate 300-plus page reports I made to USCIS containing circumstantial and direct evidence of his marriage fraud, green card scam and other criminal activity. His 2 other wives, 9 kids, and marriage fraud in other countries.
Report every lie you know about.
Have circumstantial and direct evidence to file with your report.
In my case I was able to report his wads of cash juxtaposed with no income, no true employment history, but loads of cash and never a penny paid in taxes, and many personal wire transfers, to him, from a few different countries. Records of his spending, images he had taken and posted on Facebook of globetrotting to 9 different countries in a continuous circuit over a 5-month span before ending his run in a Caribbean hideout. – His globe hopping covered all major countries that are known routes for running drugs, money, weapons and slaves. I included testimony from many others who were abused by him. There were images of his own text messages to another woman he was grooming to scam in which they discuss his marrying only for a green card. – His way to explain away a wife to her.
I reported a 3rd time and final time, this was to the panel of USCIS officials who review applications submitted by the immigrant for the 2nd green card – the 10. The one they’re all after. Under this green card they can apply for citizenship. I submitted this last report in response to the application and reminder that came to him at my (his former) address from USCIS.
By law if the immigrant changes addresses from the one on his initial green card application it must be reported to USCIS. – If nothing else protect yourself by making a simple report that he has moved out and left you.
Address your letter to the US Immigration Official who interviewed you and your spouse. Their name and address is on the letter USCIS sent to you and your spouse declaring they were granted conditional status. Include the immigration center’s Director also.
I felt strongly that I needed to stand up by reporting his wrong doing. I wanted to be very clear I removed my consent in support of the monster (I didn’t call him monster in the report, but we all know sociopaths are monsters) who scammed me being given a green card. I went so far as to say I believed he should never again have any access to the US whatsoever under any circumstances.
To my surprise, reporting his fraud was one of the hardest, most horrible things
I have ever had to do in my life.
I made two long reports and wrote one final letter just before his application cutoff for his 2nd stage green card. This gorgeous date was January 16, 2015. He is not in the US at this time. He’s in hiding. : )
Immigration officials have seen every scam under the sun. They are experts at recognizing immigration fraud. If it’s true love they will favor your application. They smell fraud from a mile away.
Signs of marriage & immigration fraud may be apparent.
A tip that something may be wrong with your immigrant spouse’s application or background is the green card interview. If the USCIS Official takes you into separate rooms, or interviews you one after another individually, they suspect something. Take this moment as a benefit. Use it. Stop. Be sure. Take a breath. Take this as a sign. Talk with the immigration officials.
If your interviewer, or USCIS immigration officials stall your application, or question aspects of the application in any way – pause – ask them to protect you! Take a private meeting without your loved one. — USCIS is on the side of the US citizen in love. They will support the relationship and protect you as someone in love. — If you have nay underlying hesitancy — let them know! They will not blame you for being married to a con man.
If the scammer’s green card goes through before you discover the scam, making your report to USCIS and ICE and Homeland Security is vitally important in blocking any attempts by the con in filing an I-751 to remove their conditional status. This will take you to the instructions for form I-751 – respond accordingly with your statements of objection.
USCIS is looking for proof of having married ‘in good faith’ and ‘criminal history’. So tell it, sister! Include incidents in which the police were called on your con artist – even if no arrest was made. Include your annulment and divorce documents and supporting witness statements or evidence of criminal or questionable behavior – if there is any. Be factual, clear, and heartfelt. It is important this is not about revenge. – This is about standing up for wrong doings.
Unless you’re in on the scam, USCIS is on your side.
Be straight forward and confident enough to ask.
They may know something we don’t about our spouse.
Speak from the heart; they’ve seen scammers before.
