Lying on K1 application

39 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife's friend is from the Philippines.  She spent 12 years living and working in Dubai.  She committed some sort of crime involving money and spent 3 years in jail.  After being released from jail, she was deported from Dubai and received a ban from re-entering the country.  When her petitioner applied for the K1, she obtained a new Filipino passport and lied saying she had only ever been to Singapore and made no mention of Dubai.  She's in the US now and just got married.  She's now worried that all this is going to come back to bite her when she applies for her green card.  What are the penalties for failing to disclose the Dubai incident and would spending 3 months in jail for a financial crime be reason to deport on it's own or in conjunction with the lying on the application?

Misrepresentation results in a lifetime ban.

She can say goodbye to the US citizenship or green card. Once she applies for it there is huge chance her past will come up and she'll be kick out from the US. 

 

Rightfully so..

How did she enter the US, as a visitor or a K1?

Arrest and deportation for both.  Both on their own makes her inadmissible. 

 

Financial crimes are crimes involving moral turpitude which makes a person inadmissible.

 

Making a material misrepresentation on the K-1 application also makes her inadmissible.  

 

She will never be safe.  Even if she makes it all the way through and one day gets US citizenship, she can always be arrested and deported.  Any immigration benefit including US citizenship will be stripped from her.

 

 

I am genuinely curious as to why this background would not have been identified during the petition/K-1 process.....any idea?

Things get missed.  We've had Nazi hide their pasts and become US citizens.

Yup....she is literally never safe as long as it remains undisclosed. Even citizenship  can be removed if it is discovered that it was obtained via fraud or misrepresentation (even the 5 year statute of limitations for a green card holder doesn't cover fraud/misrep).

Karma will come and bite her in the butt. Maybe not today but down the road...honesty is everything!! People who hide things nor disclose normally do more harm in the long run!!
