Adultery before Interview

30 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My Filipina wife of 4 years is an adulteress. I just found this out and her N-400 interview date has been scheduled in July. Any final divorce would now come after that date. Do I notify USCIS that I am in the process of divorce? She filed under being married for 3 years. She already has her 10 year Green Card. Would USCIS complete the interview if they know we are divorcing? We still would be married at the time of her interview.

Her having cheated on you and the immigration part are two different things.

It will only have an impact if you can prove fraud, which is unlikely. As long as you are married, the interview will go ahead.

If you have filed for divorce, living apart, or even thinking about divorce then her applocation will be denied under the 3 year rule.

She will have to wait until she has been living here for 5 years to re-apply.

Adultery is considering a problem when trying to establish good morale character and so she MAY have trouble naturalizying within 5 years of the "incident".

Of course, USCIS can't read her mind so if she doesn't bring the issue up and if you don't contact them, they won't know that you're not living happily together.

Remind me - does obtaining citizenship absolve the original sponsor of financial responsibility (as defined by USCIS) going forward?

Are you officially separated yet or will that occur prior to her interview date? Seems to be some moral responsibility to inform USCIS on your part.... if you choose to wait until citizenship is obtained you are no longer responsible in the USCIS definition. Divorce being another thing entirely.

I'm not recommending anything but seems to be a means to an end, but lying is never good. It will bite someone in the butt eventually.

863 is dead on naturalisation.

If this woman did you like that, I would file divorce tomorrow. I am not you, as I can only speak for myself, on how I would handle it.

File for divorce tomorrow, and cause her as much trouble as possible. As soon as I would have a copy of the divorce decree, I would forward it to the appropriate people.

It is sad, you wait so long, worry so much, and then to have what you think is a good marriage, come" crashing down on you. My heart goes out to you.

What I hear on this forum so many times is USC's holding a foreigner almost hostage with a GC or citizenship, etc. Would we seek to crush another USC's world for such a thing or give them another chance? It seems like some exspect these foreigners to grovel at their feet just because the gift of US citizenship has been presented. These foreigners leave bad conditions, yet. but they also leave their loved ones, their lives, etc to be with a person and they are people just the same. If one would seek to destroy a USC for adultery, then so be it. I feel sorry for that mentality. But if one would try to work it out with an adulterating USC, then he/she should try to work it out with their love. We married for love right? Love covers a multitude of sins. There are some things that i absolutely do not trust my fiance with. but I know that and i loook at the good and I look at the bad and yet I love him and wouldnt hold him to a higher standard than i would an american. and I certainly wouldnt make him a slave. not saying that hte OP is doing that, but so many times, the first thing i hear on difficulty is removing support, withdrawing the petitions, etc.

You need to notify USCIS now that you are divorcing so she will be denied her citizenship under the 3-year rule.

It's not holding anyone hostage. Someone went through hell and back to get this person who they thought was genuine and faithful , their spouse, only to be cheated on once they're here? It doesn't matter where they came from at that point. They're a cheater and they will be treated as such. I don't believe the benefit of getting citizenship quicker belongs to them at that point!


"A million years if I could live,
A thousand lives if I could give,
I would spend it all again with you,
Don't forget where you belong,
Only with me you are strong,
Not even the gods above can break,
Baby what we have"

was the Adultery before or after she came to USA? is up to you what you want to do. you can divorce her or work it out, because even the bible say you can only divorce on the ground of adultery BUT is up to the individual. do yo have children? all this are things to consider. if is me i will let her be, if you want to divorce, good. Return evil for evil to no one. take into consideration what is fine from the viewpoint of all men. that is all i can say. take heart, it will be well with you.

Edited by vanity08

This is the greatest lesson a child can learn. It is the greatest lesson anyone can learn. It has been the greatest lesson I have learned: if you persevere, stick w/it, work @ it, you have a real opportunity to achieve something. Sure, there will be storms along the way. And you might not reach your goal right away. But if you do your best and keep a true compass, you'll get there. Edward M. Kennedy,

So let me get this right, she cheated on you and the first thing that came on to your mind is to destroy her chance of becoming a UScitizen? Ha.. immigration love is very funny. Its not like if she becomes a US citizen there will be a pot of gold waiting for her somewhere. INFACT it would be better if she becomes one to allow your responsibilities under the I864 to be terminated. If you are still married and staying with her she will be approved for her citizenship.
