So sorry to hear that. I am assuming you went for the K-3 visa. What was the reason you were denied? You should get your congresspersons involved right away.

Outrageous of USCIS to make you wait almost 4 years before telling you they wanted more evidence. What really needs to be done is a class action lawsuit, if 2 adults make a decision to marry they should have the right to be together.

If a sex offender marries someone in his /her own country, its not like it has to be pre-approved by any government organization or anyone for that matter.

Tell that to your senator, it was the US government that passed this law, it has good intentions to protect unsuspecting immigrants from US citizen sexual preditors. Do the crime then suffer the consequences. I have no sympathy for sexual predators

Example of what could happen before the law.

http://candleforlove...showtopic=18398 (Did the visa so that can continue their sex habit on the step child.)

Do keep in mind not everyone on AWA is a sexual predator. I can understand if a Man or Women molested a child, and they try to petition a spouse that has a small child over , I could understand having to show extra proof etc.

But when 2 adults near the same age with no children get married and file , I don't see any reason to discriminate against them.

In the usa , no laws or rules discriminate against any Sex Offender marrying a usa citizen, no checks , or anything.

So this rule only hurts the spouses and families of AWA filers.

I dont think many other countries of the world would treat its citizens this way

And you think that AWA and the Registries only affect Sexual Predators?

If only it were that simple.

Did you realize that the following have got people on the Registry:

  • Peeing in your own backyard at 1 in the morning
  • Mooning another adult
  • Grabbing the arm of a kid who ran in front of your car (as you were moving in traffic).
  • Skinny Dipping
  • Walking from your bathroom to your bedroom naked after a shower (neighbor kid looking in your window)
  • 18 year old boy having sex with 16 or 17 year old girlfriend
  • Drunk, peeing behind a dumpster in an alley

Further, some states are putting kids as young as 10 on the list!

Don't equate AWA with punishing Sexual Predators because it casts a wide net that ensnares more who shouldn't be that who should. Why aren't sex crime rates dropping if the List and other such bogus laws are working?

The one part they got right was the Disclosure of petitioner's past criminal record and that's not even part of AWA, it's part of IMBRA! If you want to get around that just marry her and IMBRA doesn't apply!

The intent of the law is good but it obviously needs to be refined! I am glad our government seeks to avoid subjecting anyone to the brutalities potentially inflicted by sexual predators!

There have been people that have AWA issues that have been approved. So it isn't an automatic denial. As a woman that is a child molestation survivor I think that having to totally prove that you will no long harm anyone is a small thing to ask of the animals that fall under this act. I am sure any of the tree/dumpster peeing people could get the wavier ( if they are truly on the sex offender list and not some urban legend ) If having every person go through this would save one child from having the same happen to them then I think every person should have to go through the same process, however the US government has chosen to only apply this process to those with an abusive history.


This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.

Really? You don't think that your sister, or neighbour has the right to have THEIR children protected from a sex offender?

In the usa , no laws or rules discriminate against any Sex Offender marrying a usa citizen, no checks , or anything.

You are correct but they already live in the US. They are already (likely) registered sex offenders in the US. You are asking for the special privilege of the immigration of a criminal... stop thinking about it as just "marriage". It's immigration. You want to marry them and move to their country, the US doesn't care. It isn't about the marriage, it's immigration.

So this rule only hurts the spouses and families of AWA filers.

Wrong. This rule HELPS many millions of people and protects them from the stupid narrow minded decisions of someone who thinks they know someone better than they do. The person might be changed, but if they're not, you are wanting to import a criminal and subject them to your family/friends and that person you walked past down the street.

I dont think many other countries of the world would treat its citizens this way

The US isn't stopping you from MARRYING this person, it's stopping you from immigrating them.. and yes, MANY other countries all over the world WOULD care and stop the immigration of a criminal.

The problem is you're only thinking about YOU and YOUR family. How about the kids in your neighbourhood? Or the girl down at the country store who closes late at night? Sure there are evil people in the US but you're asking for permission to allow said evil person immigrate to another country. Fresh new "victims" for them.

As someone else said it could be peeing outside (exposure) and so the waiver would be pretty easy, but I sure hope sex offenders are given a hard time and not allowed to immigrate and on the off-chance they ARE permitted to immigrate they should be registered in the US as well as sex offenders. It doesn't matter that the immigrant and their spouse don't have kids, other people in the US do, and you're asking for permission to expose THOSE families to a sex offender.

And just out of interest, there ARE rules about someone marrying a sex offender when they have children. Nothing stops them from marrying but the spouse can be sued/charged for endangerment of a child. There are also rules for the sex offenders to stay a certain distance from children and if they breach it they can go back to jail.

I understand how you feel upset at US immigration for not permitting your loved one to immigrate, but really, you should be angry at your loved one for breaking the law and stop blaming the US for protecting itself and its people. I'm not trying to be mean to you, but your post is very all about you and your needs. There are many posts where people thought they knew the person they were importing and it turns out they didn't. One hopes that it's not them and their relationship that will turn out the same but especially when a KNOWN criminal is trying to immigrate it only makes sense that the government requires more proof than just your word, and your love to let that happen.
