Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Ukraine
Timeline

Through V/J Alla and I have made several friends, which for her to be able to talk Russian to someone is good for her and for both of us to talk to other people who have gone through the visa process.

We got a call last night from a friend whose husband told her he wanted a divorce, she is from Russia and he is a USC. I have a lot of information on the exact problems, but it is not my place to post them, which is insignificant for my question. She came here on a K1 and they have only been married for 10 days. Our advice was to try to work things out with him, but my question is what her options are if he still wants a divorce?

Like Gary I am not good at looking at old posts :bonk: , but I seem to remember reading that if the AOS was not completed, the chances of one remaining in the USA without completing the AOS—was slim and most were advised to seek an attorney, Apparently he is willing to help her with renting a place to live and such, but not sure if he will be willing to complete the AOS with her.

She is a member on this site, so any advice for her would be appreciated.

Only option is to leave, if there is nothing else going on (like abuse) - doesn't seem like there is. Honestly, going for AoS just so she can stay it flat out fraud and would be stupid from USC point of view given what he would sign up for with I-864.

They have not even filed for AOS so there is no option for her but to go back (legal options) She has no "immigration status" to protect. It is a shame he waited until AFTER they were married, requiring a divorce, but there really is little else for her to do, absent a ligitimate VAWA claim.
