Hi there, sorry if I post in the wrong forum.

Im from Indonesia. I have a friend who just got her visitor visa for 5 years. She plans to visit her boyfriend in this december. Then they will marry somewhere next year.

Do you think she can marry in Indo (a legal one) and then come over to US without filing the paperwork on for her K-3 visa in Indo (using her visitor visa), marry in US court again and file the GC in US?

Please let me know what the worst thing can happen with this. Or maybe someone can help her with better way. Thanks!

Doesn't sound right to me. she would have to declare her marriage in Indonesia and if she intends to immigrate to the US she would have to file a K-3. If she does not declare her marriage and it is found out, she could be deported.

at least, this is how I think it works

She would be better to get a K1, marry in the US and then return to Indonesia for her traditional wedding. What you are suggesting is a blatant flouting of the immigration rules. Visitors visas are for visiting! Preconceived intent to remain would likely get her denied entry, and a USC husband would be a huge red flag.

An alternative is to have an engagement-only ceremony in Indo, then come on a K1 and marry here in the US. That allows for some kind of traditional ceremony in her home country.

The better way is the correct way....K3

unless want to explain why your lied upon your entry into the US assuming that you even get admitted.

I finally got rid of the never ending money drain. I called the plumber, and got the problem fixed. I wish her the best.

visa fraud is nothing to chance and not smiled on as an innocent error

For starters, a married person cannot marry.

This one is to be filed under very bad idea.

Bad idea - they should not pursue this course at all.

The only legal ways to enter the US with premeditated intent to marry are: a) K-1 visa, which she gets engaged to the US citizen; B) K-3 visa, in which she's already married to the US citizen.

The processes for these are not too unreasonable, and well described. She can't go into the US already married and try to get married again, either, because she is already married?
