    Uh - really not sure illegal aliens only hang out with other illegal aliens. It's about a costs/benefits rationale, not necessarily about pity. In the case of infectious diseases, timing is crucial for effective containment. Early diagnosis can save all kinds of problems to the whole community. Following your example, it would also save the CDC or whoever involved in the containment a lot of money (= taxpayers' money!).
    Seriously, there have to be smarter ways to counteract illegal immigration rather than turning hospitals in detention and deportation centers. I think it's in everyone's best interest.

    How about this scenario. An illegal alien with a deadly and highly infectious disease doesn't go to the hospital due to the fear of being deported. How many US citizen would be affected by the policy you are suggesting?

    As far as I know, very poor people do it - regardless of their citizenship or immigration status. What I'm saying includes them all. Personally, I am for providing healthcare to everyone - for both ethical AND sanitary reasons.

    Just to clarify: are you calling a courthouse marriage 'the paperwork'? For immigration purposes (and lawfully, in general), a courthouse marriage would be considered the real marriage.
    I think not living together will raise suspicions. Really solid proof of co-mingling of finances (might be difficult, since you are still students) and regular travels to see each other could help prove bonafide, but in the end it will be up to the IO to decide. Good luck.

    Sounds like you've been having a tough time. Here are my rebuttals, as the immigrant, to what I think you USC's need to do
    1. Don't think that now we're here you can treat us how you like, that we need to give in to your whims, we do not.
    2. Don't think we don't WANT to work. We want to work and feel useless 24/7. Understand that YOU are supposed to be supporting US in our transition. We aren't a new piece of furniture. You cannot go about work like you used to, you have us at home now and we need your time too!
    3. Don't assume because we're talking online to friends/family that we're flirting. Don't think that now we're here that you should stop trying and stop showing us love and romance.
    4. Remember everything we gave up, to come here for YOU. Don't think that we should be "so happy we're in the US" when we're still missing our friends and family back home. It's insulting to us and our home country that you don't allow us the opportunity to grieve.
    Sure, there are scammers and there are red-flags to look out for, but just because we're the immigrant doesn't mean that we're "the bad one". Relationships take 2 people and I know of a lot of USC's that think now their spouse/fiancee is in the US they can stop trying and just let it go. Not only is leaving home an adjustment, but the changes in relationship are an adjustment as well. Suddenly being beholden to someone else for the bare essentials is degrading and humiliating (depending on the person)
    I'm sorry your relationship isn't going well - sound like your spouse is the problem, doesn't mean you should attribute those things to ALL immigrants. And for the record, none of what you typed, or what I typed relates to my relationship or anyone else I know, but are instead based on the depressing stories you can find on VJ, last 6 month there's been a rash of "well it's not working" posts.

    My impression is you aren't taking this quite seriously enough. I really do think you need a lawyer. And please NEVER refer yourself as a US citizen: you are not, and that alone can cost you a ban from the US (http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/how-falsely-claiming-us-citizen-can-deportable.html). There's no waiver for it.

    Once you're married, you will apply for Advance Parole and Employment Authorization Document along with Adjustment of Status. AP is the document you need to come back to the US if you travel abroad while your AOS is pending. It takes ~3 months to get it.
    It is generally not advisable to make plans for the wedding/honeymoon before you have your K1 in hand.

    On the i-129F there's specifically this question:
    "Is your fiance(e) related to you?"
    Check no, and be ready to show proof if requested (I don't think they will ask for it if the surname is common, but I might be wrong).

    Nope. Interviews appear to be completely random and are not based on whether or not you added documents that were not required. Plenty of people have been approved without an interview by sending only what is required, just the copy of the marriage certificate. Besides, as it is now, I think people should want an interview since they get their green cards faster when they do.
