New Unique Situation

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

First Hello / Salam to all,

I am the US Petitioner and my Fiance is from Egypt. We are not at the stage to file just yet but we know that our case will have some "Red Flags". nIts sad tosay but that for a man to rbing over more than one Fiance/Wife seems to be okay. My situation is a bit different. This would be my 3rd marriage and my 2nd to a MENA man.

My first marriage was when I was very young and lasted for 6 years to a US Citizen. Amiciable divorce no issues. (One child from that marriage.)

My second marriage was to an arab man, whom I met online, fell in love with and brought him here on a K1 visa, only because of my son not being able to leave the country without his fathers consent. (Which I would never do)We have a daughter together.(He has his Citizenship - 2nd)

My new Fiance' We are barley 2 years in age difference, he is older.He has never been married and has no children. I have two children and have been married and divorced twice. We have known each other since 2004 (before my second husband) and have remained friends ever since.

I know that we can prove that we love each other but I am looking for anyone who has been in this situation.

Thank you !

I thank you in advance for all your help. I am sure I will get some great advice as well as not so great comments.


2005 Met Online

2006 Met in person for the first time in Egypt.

I am divorced with children and my husband is from pakistan and we were questioned thoroughly (his interview was about 45 min in the embassy and the called me on july 25th to ask me questions as well) this is my second marriage and only one from MENA. All I can say is make sure you have everything you can think of as document proof of the relationship... and be prepared to be heavily questioned and checks done on both of you. I do wish you the best of luck...

I think the fact that you have petitioned and brought a MENA man here and subsequently divorced and are now petitioning another MENA man is going to be some problems for you.

Salaam...your situation is common here..there are many of us that belong to that group that I affectionately call 'VJ 2.0'

Mohammed and I divorced in 2007 after he got his 10 year greencard. I married Ibrahim in 2008 he also got a 10 year greecard. I know MANY of the members here have petitioned more than once. As long as you have the expected proof in hand you should be just fine.

Good luck to you and if you would like some suggestions how to submit awesome 'proof' send me a message. I have some good ideas for you. :thumbs:
