Fake marriage and human trafficking?

16 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Cut a long story short, if a US citizen brought a foreign citizen to the US through marriage and then the US citizen only wanted to get married to have as basically a slave and abuse and refused to file the immigration and made them go to work is this classed as human trafficking? Basically the whole marriage was just a rouse to own a modern slave.

It could be. Probably falls under some category of it. If this is someone you know you should report them (the USC) to the proper authorities for them to investigate. If you know the "abused", you again should contact same proper authorities so they can look into it and potentially get that person out of the situation.

I divorced and moved on. I applied for citizenship under the 5 year rule. I didn't do vawa at all 

I can't do that I never filed my paperwork. My wife said she sent them in but I found them 2 years later in one of her drawers

It's likely not human trafficking unless there's clear evidence that he/she is being forced against their will.

If there's illegal activity involved, contact the cops. If there's unsafe situations, seek out a shelter and contact the cops.

I'm the one. I always said from the beginning that my wife didn't see me as a husband. Even the marriage councilor said he couldn't help us because we didn't have a marriage.

Vawa seems so lengthy and benefits people who managed to escape to a safe place with their kids.

Doesn't sound like human trafficking by definition.  Sounds more like abuse, and kidnapping/holding someone against their will.  But there must be proof of said abuse, authorities don't mess around with people who come with stories and zero evidence.

 

This would not be an immigration issue, this needs to be dealt with my the local police department, or by contacting a lawyer.


DCF CR1 filing in Guangzhou, China:

Married - 2018-09-25

I-30 submitted at Guangzhou office - 2019-06-17
I-130 approved - 2019-06-18

Nope no proof and my wife is very very good at lying. She found out I was writing on here a few years ago and changed my handle to my full real name.

I don't believe my wife had any intentions of marrying me for a normal marriage. She told me she only married her second husband because he had good credit to buy a house, which they had foreclosed on them.

 

If I married a foreigner for the sole purpose of having her as basically my slave, I isolate her, abuse her, threaten to have her deported etc am I not guilty of being a human trafficker?

Looking at your posting history, you received good advice over 5 years ago. What did you do since then?   Did you get assistance or support from someone in your area?  Resources are there to help you, but that doesn't mean they will think your situation is human trafficking.

And was married for 6 years at that time. So this is an 11 year marriage.
