Just a quick question - If the alien fiance gets married (after being on a K1 visa) and adjusts their status for the greencard, which is approved, will this have any implications on them declaring bankruptsy back in their home country? I'm asking this as I have quite alot of debt in the UK and I dont think i'll be able to keep up the monthly payments when i'm in the states as the $ is almost half the value of the £! Thanks

I am not quite sure about your situation, but in my case I (the USC) would probably get a personal loan from my bank in the states to pay off that debt in UK, transferring the debt to the USA. Bankruptcy can affect you for many years.

The trouble is that my fiance the usc doesnt have a good credit rating - also i've been told that bankruptcy on the UK would not effect credit rating in the US. The amount is quite alot - around £20,000 and it would mean having to pay $40,000 loan and we would be paying alot of money a month for the rest of our lives! I guess I dont want my fiance to suffer for the debt that i accumilated from being young and foolish!

Yes that is a lot. Yes that would be a large pill to take.

I would consult an attorney since that is what you should do anyway when considering bankruptcy.

I did look at the inadmissibility standards and saw nothing there about this.

Then again I am not an immigration attorney, this is a good question for an expert.

Id seek advice from National Debt Line, in the UK, they can send you

Lol - me too! I just dont want anything to complicate it - plus it would look like i was using the visa to run from my problems in the UK!! I was thinking that saying after I'd been in the states for a while (after getting my greencard) that i just couldn afford the repayments wouldn't seem so bad. I dont know!! :)

Any one can file for bankruptcy but only a judge can grant it, its not a case of saying I want to go bankrupt, you have to pay some money and go before a judge and he will decide if you can.
