I had lunch today with a friend and shared the current stage of my husband's CR-1 visa application (NOA2 recently received, waiting for NVC case number).  Our journey is pretty straightforward stuff, just waiting and hoping that we can be together soon, maybe later this year as we are very much in love and I have visited him in Brazil 7 times...  Then she shared her story and it blew me away!  She is from the Philippines, and came to the US 20 years ago on a tourist visa, met a USC and married him.  They divorced before filing AOS as he was abusive and threatened to call USCIS to report her for visa fraud.  She stayed illegally after the divorce and met another USC and married him, this time filing AOS and she eventually got her green card, but later that marriage ended in divorce as well.  About 15 years later, she currently has her US citizenship and is dating another guy, this time he's from the Philippines as well, an LPR who is married to a USC but doesn't live with his wife and came right out and admitted that he just got married for a green card. And now he's after her.  I told her to run from this guy as fast as she can!  I've known this friend for a few years but had no idea what she had been through with US immigration.  Some people never learn...   Crazy story!

So whats the problem.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
