What should you do if you bring a woman here on a K1 VISA and things don't work out. So you buy her a ticket back to her home country, but she just skips out of town and refuses the ticket. You never hear from her again and have no way to contact her.

Does the K1 VISA sponsor have any legal obligations? Does the K1 VISA sponsor have to report her to INS? ICE? What should he do? anything?

I should add that we never married. No adjustment of status. She stayed beyond the 90 days.

I am not one for sure on any of this but the 91 day and no marriage she is beyound the regulations on this visa, as marriage was the requirement. I would just advise the immigration dept give them the story etc etc if u bought the ticket nice of you but u cant make her use it. Since the main requirement wasnt met i wouldnt think a sponsor would be held liable, if they are given the whole story, (all just my thought i maybe wrong)

You have no fault in this matter, so you might call the USCIS

because it seems like a pretty straight forward, uncomplicated

question.

I'd be more worried about getting the ticket refunded (probably

a hopeless crusade) than what happens to her. She broke your

heart and is stepping on it by overstaying. Your responsiblity

ends with the 91st day I believe, but I WOULD be asking questions

about would this hurt your applying for a visa for someone else

if you have the heart to go through that kind of crapshoot again.

There's likely to be a waiting period.

You'll be wiser the next go-round but keep the faith, there

are good people out there.

I would say to notify USCIS and that is all. It is not your responsibility to enforce immigration laws. She entered the US legally and did not meet her obligations under the visa so her status is "out of status". She is subject t deportation. My may concern, were I you, is that I would have some sort of documentation that you met your obligation and were not commiting visa fraud to help someone get into the US. Such a thing could hurt you for future visas, but it is NOT your responsibility to eject her from the country. You really have NO obligation to enforce the law at all, but just cover yourself for the future, that's all.

Just wondered what country is she from?

On a funny note -- What has ones country to do with leaving from an unhappy relationship? :)

I assumed Haole asked because some countries are considered by USCIS to be "high-fraud", meaning that some fiancé(e)s are more apt to do a runner once in the U.S. because their intention was to just get into the country. OR, they marry, get the GC and then do a runner. But this relationship was just a case of things not working out, sounds like. I feel bad for the guy, he's left with this mess to deal with.

I would notify USCIS, and also call Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) at least for a second opinion about the situation and how it might affect you. ICE is experienced with this sort of thing, and you may pick up some invaluable advice or information that USCIS would not know (or think) to tell you. It would be up to ICE to pursue the ex-fiancee or not, at ICE's discretion.

06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).

I agree that one's country of origin is irrelevant in this situation. I don't think I would classify that as "On a funny note", though. The smiley face at the end is wildly inappropriate, IMHO. You think this is a joke?

It takes 8 months for us to see each other back again since we started our visa process, and now here we are reunited back again and happy together.
