I was wondering what everyone thought about filing visa petitions for more than one person, i.e. first marriage didn't work out, file again for new foreign S/O. I don't want to anger anyone who's in that position, but to me it seems strange. I think if I worked for DHS, that would indicate that the petitioner was actively looking for a relationship with a foreigner. Do you think that's ok????

jenn,

In and of itself - yes it's OK.

Start adding in some 'why' factors and the answer might change.

I don't see a reason why DHS would care if that happens, considering the time between one marriage and petition and another. It would probably raise alarm bells is less than 2 years pass between both petitions.....my two cents....

Yes, Yodrak. That's what I was getting at. I don't see it as just coincidence that a person would continually fall in and out of love with foreigners. To me it seems like it would be a bright red flag for fraud.

Im sure that its something thats 'frowned upon' by USCIS but they cant ultimately deny an application based on the fact that the USC was married to another foreigner before. Anyone in that kind of situation would probably have to work ten times harder to prove that their relationship is real.

A red flag would definately go up if there were multiple (i.e. more than one foreign spouse) petitions filed by one person in a short period of time. then i think CIS would start thinking fraud was involved.

I aint cool enough for a signature.....

Maybe this person would be someone too shy to meet someone in real life, then he had a relationship online, didn´t work out, then he met someone else. It´s not so strange although from my personal experience in the process I must love and be loved too deeply to go through all the trouble, waiting, expenses, etc to be with my SO, and him to be with me, so I think it´s odd that it wouldn´t work out, at least not right after you get married.

Well all I can say is that I personally wouldn't be intentionally looking for a foreigner since all of this visa riff raff has ruined my whole life. Well that could be an exaggeration, however there has been much pain and suffering on both sides due to not being able to see eachother like normal couples do. But hey if you're patient enough to seek out a foreigner, then good for you!

It certainly has happened before. I think there might be some new rules about it so you might want to start looking at the USCIS website concerning multiple petitions.

Precisely!

Maybe it's just me, but I don't think it should be allowed, ESPECIALLY from the same country more than once.

:yes: I would give them another chance.. say 2 times.. also with the reasonable time!! but red flag if it's more than that.

K-1 = 4 months

AOS = 5 months

I think it should be allowed - just because it might be unlikely doesn't mean it can't happen!!!! I just think that it probably (and probably should) raise a few red flags.

It really depends. Someone might be "looking" for a foreign spouse because he or she is a naturalized citizen and would like to marry someone from his or her own native culture. I see nothing strange or wrong about that. And, as we've all said, relationships sometimes don't work out.

But a serial petition-filer singling out a specific area of the world might well raise some red flags, too.
