  1. Whether you would care or not, it would not be up to you whether or not your spouse would get VAWA approved or not. Obviously, one should hire a lawyer to fight the order of protection and for the divorce.
  2. Even if you marry after the 90 days are up you can still AOS but in that case you need to file I-130 & I-130A with your AOS packet.
  3. Ok, so I adjusted from VWP. My intent was NEVER questioned, even though we were practically engaged when I entered. I did say "boyfriend". We met in April. We entered the US 13 June, got married 24 June. Our short courtship was quickly questioned at interview. We said we just KNEW. My husband had a divorce *between wedding & divorce being final, less than a year elapsed* so he was asked about that. Youthful mistake, crazy ex. That was it. Intent was never mentioned. Intent for all intent and purposes, is determined at POE. Unless one commits misrepresentation, one wont be questioned on it @ interview.... Edit: Sorry, I completely forgot about and only saw the mod's post AFTER I posted this. Since it contains anecdote from our interview someone might find helpful, I will leave it here. Mods, feel free to edit or delete.
  4. I can only recount my personal experience. Entered on VWP with boyfriend, a USC (we met in another country, not in the US nor my home country) to meet his family and yes, possibly get married. I was completely ignorant of immigration processes beyond ruling out K-1 since it sounded complicated & I qualified for VWP. (I had no idea at the time you had to file for AOS from K-1, either.) The plan at the time was enter in June, meet his family, see where he lives, get married if we so choose then both of us would leave within the 90 days so we can go visit the rest of my family in Hungary, my home country. What I did NOT realize then but realized only after the wedding was that if I left the country I couldn't come back without going through the spousal visa process, which takes a year. Having just gotten married, we quickly scrapped the going to visit my family plan and filed for AOS instead. Visiting my family got pushed back repeatedly, we finally managed it 6 years later. I was a USC by then having gone through ROC & naturalization. We also had our 3 kids by then. Genuinely no intent to adjust at POE (there was intent to marry, yes, not against the law) until I actually sat down months later & started to learn what the process entailed.
  5. Do you have the special visa needed to get married in the UK?
  6. Yes. They will not be the first or the last who file for AOS while in the US on tourist status. As long as it was not pre-planned, there is nothing illegal about it.
  7. The parents may have a permanent ban. Coming in illegally, staying for over a year, leaving and coming back causes a permanent ban. I don’t know if it was for over a year the first time, though.
  8. OP is in Sweden so I doubt Morocco’s divorce process has any bearing on OP’s situation....
  9. Why, oh why would you call the Misinformation Line again? It serves no purpose. The last 2 times they gave you the wrong information. What makes you think it will be different this time?
  10. Stop listening to the Misinformation Line. The people answering that line aren’t even federal employees. They don’t work for USCIS. It’s outsourced. Re-file ASAP and this time include the I-864 and its supporting documents.
  11. One can have a positive on the blood test and negative X-ray. It’s called latent TB and it isn’t contagious. Nor does it kill or harm you, unless it develops into active TB. Those with latent TB have a 1 in 10 chance of developing active TB in their lifetime. The vast majority of people with latent TB are unaware of having it.
