Husband never became citizen but left

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I got married and brought my husband over on a K-1 Visa I believe (the fiance one to speed things up so he could get here faster). We never married when he got to the US but did marry in Iran and sent all the proof to US immigration when we filed for his social security and temporary resident card. He left me a few months later. Do I have to get a divorce here in the states if we were never married here? I will never return to Iran. Thanks for your help.

Married is married, everywhere. The exception would be cases of plural marriage. So, if you married in Iran, you are "married". If you want to be unmarried, you'll need a divorce. Divorces are obtained where you reside.

You both commited visa fraud by applying for a K1 visa when you were actually married. The conditions of a K1 state you must marry within 90 days of arrival which you couldn't do because of being previously married. That being said you can only adjust status on the basis of the US marriage that didn't happen. You need to turn whatever information over to ICE ( see bottom of the page ) and leave it to them to remove him. Hopefully you don't get in trouble for your fraudulent actions ( you petitioned for a K1 lying that you weren't married )


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