|What to do if you find out you have sponsored a mentally ill foreigner?
Read 1131 Times
I am not sure what forum to post this question in, but I need help pretty quickly. I will try to make this as short as possible.
I filed for a K-1 VISA for my (ex)husband in 2012. He arrived in December 2012 and we were immediately married. After just a few weeks I noticed his behavior was just not “right”. He thought people were breaking into the house, his clothes were being stolen, secret cameras were installed, my daughter was trying to kill him…I could go on for days. I contacting TWO therapists at different times who were certain he was schizophrenic. I COULD NOT get him to go see a doctor. I ended up taking job out of the country as I was living a nightmare with him. At the time, I didn’t think I was in physical danger but I wasn’t taking the chance.
He ended up moving out of our home in FL to Las Vegas while I was gone. Things there just got worse. Somehow in this time, he was granted a green card without an interview. That was in September 2013. I was actually hoping to have the interview so I could inform immigration as to what was happening. I don’t have medical “proof” but one look at his Facebook page or just a few of the emails I have from him will leave one with no doubt. I tried to get his family to help but they assumed we were having marital problems. They NOW know I was telling the truth. I had no choice but to file for divorce as our marriage, or his mental capacity, could not be salvaged.
In May of 2014, our divorce was final. He is still in Las Vegas and I am still out of the safely out of the country. We are still in limited contact and I check on him occasionally. He has gotten worse! He truly feels the US government is after him and is convinced, I (along with a few dozen others) am behind it somehow. My family members and friends are actually quite worried they will be his target as he has been contacting them recently asking about nonsense. Obviously I am worried about our safety as well as his, I am concerned with a few other things:
1) Other than financially, how much responsibility do I have now that we are no longer married?
2) He needs to go back to his country. I am very concerned, not only for his safety but for others around him. I am not trying to be hateful and have him deported, but I feel he needs to be with his family. He truly needs help and I cannot legally force him to get treatment. Is it possible to accomplish this?
Should I, can I and how DO I contact immigration about this matter?
Seriously, one look at any evidence I have will be alarming to authorities. He has already been to the police and the FBI (according to him) and they will not talk to him now. He stated that when he went to the police the second time, they asked him if he has ever been treated for a mental disorder. His response “See, now someone has reported me to the authorities as being crazy and they will never believe me.”
|Fiance visa or marrying abroad? (split)
Read 284 Times
I am a US citizen in Alaska. My fiance is from AFG. We have been working on the 129F form and are meeting in October to fulfill that requirement. My friend, who is from Ukraine, suggested we get married while we are in Dubai and then work on Spouse paperwork instead. I am not seeing any benefits to this, time or money saved. In fact, the charts I was reading earlier looked like it takes longer as a spouse. Maybe I was looking at the K-3 stuff. Am I missing something?
I just read this
"If you plan to marry a foreign national outside the United States or your fiancé(e) is already residing legally in the United States, you do not need to file for a fiancé(e) visa. See the “Green Card” link to the right." from http://www.uscis.gov/. And this:
"Get a Green Card While Outside the United States
If you are currently outside the United States and are an immediate relative of a U.S. citizen, you can become a permanent resident through consular processing. Consular processing is when USCIS works with the Department of State to issue a visa on an approved Form I-130 petition when a visa is available."
--So I would not fill out a CR1? Just an I-130?
What is the best course of action? We want to do what is fastest and cheapest, or course. Please help!
