This is a question for those familiar with the VAWA process.
I completed the K-1 process for a Russian lady, she came to America, we married, filed the I-485, and I immediately knew I had made a big mistake. She was after the green card and nothing else. I withdrew the Affidavit of Support for the I-485 before the green card was issued. Of course she became angry. She refused to sign divorce papers. I assume she went back to Russia because she disappeared completely. I finally got divorced after hiring a Russian lawyer who handled the process in Russia.
I suspect this lady filed a VAWA to attempt to get the green card. After the I-485 was filed she began using legalese language like I was trying to control her, and I put my hands on her without her permission (when trying to show a little affection). Her I-485 is still open after 15 months, with status "request for evidence was received."
My question is this: how would it affect me if she filed a VAWA? Will my name be used in the evidence she provides to try to show abuse? And specifically, if I decide to try to file another petition for another foreign lady, will this fabricated VAWA be held against me? Will the adjudicators of another petition that I might file know that another lady filed the VAWA and accused me?
Thank you very much for any information.
