Left USA while on K1 status

17 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I came to United State on K1 visa and registered my marriage within 90 days, I don't know if he ever filed for change of status for me.

My husband sent me back to Pakistan and told me that I can come back whenever I want to, I did not know anything about immigration process.

Now, he does not want me to come back and threatend me that he would file the divorce, How can I re-enter to USA or if he files the divorce can I get visa to contest my divorce? Please help me.

If you left without filing to adjust status then you have used up your K1 status and he needs to petition as a k3.cr1 for you and start all over.

K1 is is a 1 time entry visa meaning you have to Adjust Status before you leave the US. Your K1 is nill and void now so now your hubby will have to start over as K3 or CR1... Im so sorry.

I went through the same as you a good few years back and i know and understand it's not pleasant. My x sent me back because he had another woman and ofcourse didn't want me around and so with not having a job i could not support myself or my son he had signed the Affidavit of Support which tied him into supporting me for 10years but he was smart and his attorney told him to pay for a ticket and send me back to my homeland( which he did) then it would be an easy process, i found this out about a year after i was back...so sad really and i feel for you.

Like the others said, a K1 is a one time entry visa. Once you leave the US without Advanced Parole or the greencard then you cannot reenter the US unless you have some other kind of visa. There is no specific visa to come and contest a divorce (as far as I know, but you could try for a visitor's visa.

I don't know what other options you have in terms of the divorce. Even if you did come back you cannot file for AOS without having your husband as a sponsor. The K1 allows for adjustment after marriage to the petitioner so once you get here you would be out of status anyway. Someone correct me if I am wrong.

If you left without filing to adjust status then you have used up your K1 status and he needs to petition as a k3.cr1 for you and start all over.

It sounds like she wants to come back to contest the divorce, not to be with her husband.

What state were you married in? With a few exceptions, many states in the USA honour no-fault grounds for divorce, and so it might be a waste of time coming here to contest something that your husband has the right to do!

That is correct. In addition, contesting a divorce does not really result in no divorce. You can only really contest the terms of the divorce with regard to property settlements and child custody or maybe spousal support (like alimony) arrangements. Generally short term marriages result in property settlements that reflect what would have been if the couple hadn't married.

By your husband getting you to leave the US without advanced parole or permanent resident status, he effectively protected himself from any viable contest of the divorce. Even if he did file for adjustment of status, you would need to be involved. Actually, it is you that files to adjust status.

How would I know if he ever applied for adjustment of Status application.

I'm going to go out on a limb here and say, don't bother, he didn't. I'm so sorry.

Since it is YOUR application and not his... You would have done it (or at least signed the application)... So I think you know your answer and it is most likely NO...

Im sorry to say this but It seem that he wanted to get you out of the state and it is not his intentions for you to come back.

This was a mean thing for him to do to you. K-1 is for to enter the US one time only. He wanted you gone and if you're gone he has no financial responsibility for you. This is a LOSER be glad you are home with your family and not abandoned here.

I feel for you.

Bad deal. Sounds like you got hood winked into leaving, now you are out of status, or well you are not to travel outside of the USA until you get Advance Parole or GC, for US will not allow you to enter back into the USA. :unsure:
