Tricked by best friend

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a friend that she is very upset with her situation.I will write in a few words what happened.

She is hapilly married with her husband and in the process to lift her conditions.In 2010 she wrote an invitation to her best friend to visit her.

In the summer 2012 her best friend arrived based on her invitation,and she stayed at their house.

After her best friend arrived things started to change,her best friend become rude,and sayed wanted to go and spend her vacation in a big city,that is nothing to do in that city,and she left.

She left their house and moved in a big city.My friend started to be suspicious,that something is wrong.She asked her friend to go back because her turist visa will expire.Her best friend overstayed.

My friend is feeling responsable for what happened beacuse she and her husband invited her best friend. Also her mom visited her 3 months ago(she is visiting her every year,but she never stays more then 3 weeks because of her work),and she was stopped at the border and asked about the friend who overstayed,and the officer even if he saw she got back in the past,he still had doubts about her mom.

I know most of the topics here are with peoples that got tricked by their wifes,but what is happening if you got tricked by your best friend?

What will be the consequinces,and what does she has to do?Is this going to effect her in the future?Or now that she applied for I 751?

And last what kind of advice you will give her to all the situation?She is very hurted of what happened,especially that her best friend didn't told her the real intensions and tricked her...

Sorry about your friend's situation.

Things learnt from story : Never send out invitation letters to be used for other people tourist visa applications (except maybe your immediate family members). Who know what their true intention might be.

At least the "Best friend" left your friend's house without causing further trouble.

See this link:

http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/301596-visitors-visa-working-illegaly/

The OP's friends came on Tourist visa, gave birth and refused to leave OP's house!

And worst, OP could not even evict them!

So your friend should never accept the "Best Friend" to stay at her house ever again.

Your friend will be fine with her I-751 though.

I would just move on. There are no consequences to her friend leaving. Everyone is free in the US to go wherever they want to go. It's not like she can force her friend to do anything. So she shouldn't feel responsible. It was her friend's decision and that's all that matters. Nothing can be done about it.

If she stays illegally, she risks deportation and being barred from the US.

If she doesn't have a way to immigrate, she should leave the US before her status runs out, otherwise she may not be allowed to come back unless that waiver is filed. If she filed it, then she might be allowed to wait until she can immigrate legally. Maybe she found someone and maybe she just thinks that she can stay. Who knows? I would just say move on with your life. Some friends aren't worth it. This one clearly isn't. And she isn't your friend's responsibility.

Merrytooth and bsd058 thank you for your reply!But ALL THIS will effect her immigration status?She started to be very scared after her mom was hold and questioned about her best friend overstay (WHY DID THEY DO THAT??).Her mom was finally allowed to entry the country,and of course she already went back.

As i said she is scared,(because of her friend overstayed),she tried to find an advice for a lawyer but no success,she doesn't know what are the procedures in this case,and she is blaiming herself.

In conclusion, does anybody know what the law is about this? Thank you in advance!

As others have said this is NOT your friend's fault.

It should not affect her immigration status in any way. At most, it will come up as a question at the interview if there is one.

That being said, if she has any written communication regarding this subject, I would recommend keeping it as proof that your friend was not privy to the fact that the "best friend" was intending to break any laws.

Again, not her fault she trusted someone and was betrayed. She cannot force the "best friend" to leave if they want to stay illegally.

True, and she cannot force the best friend to stay in her house if she wants to go to a city. It won't affect your friend at all I would think.

Oh please no way can she make her friend stay. go, or be responsible for her, maybe mom was jusrt questioned because same address and name came up as the place the other visitor was suppose to be

staying, 4get about it and if they come enquiring of her point them in the big city direction and tell them you know nothing else, it will not affect your filings. At the beginning of the post I thought it was gonna

be that her friend took away her husband LOL, sometimes its best not to write recommending letters for immigration benefits for others when U yourself is not yet legal.
