How to report marriage fraud

29 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a friend who married someone from the Philippines and filed a spouse visa.  It took about a year process before she got approved and when she came to US.  A year after the wife cheated her husband w other man.  Now, can a husband file a report for marriage fraud because she just used the guy to get a greencard visa? She has 2 yr temporary greencard and will be expired by july 2019.   What can the guy do to report that he has been used by his wife to get a green card?

What evidence is there that it was fraud? If there is actual evidence, he can report it using the link at the bottom of any VJ page, or via making an appointment at a local USCIS field office. They may or may not do anything.

She has to remove conditions on her green card anyway. She needs to show that the marriage was entered into in good faith. This is a process for her alone....he has no role in it anymore.

 

If there is no hard evidence of fraud, then just leave it be. A he-says, she-says situation will go nowhere. There's plenty of former spouses of immigrants who hold a grudge. DHS acts based on facts.

Cheating is not immigration fraud. Unless you have proof that she planned to be with that guy from a start and use you for a green card only, there is nothing to report. 

 

Cheating sucks but have nothing to do with immigration.

Sound like she had an affair. That is not marriage fraud. Suggest your friend just move on with his life.

Cheating doesn't equal a fraudulent marriage.
