Recently we published "Classification of Scammers" article on this web site. Specifically, immigration laws in many countries allow the immigrant women married to abusive husbands to obtain a divorce while still retaining the right to apply for the citizenship or greencard in the new country.
The The Green Card Hunters were mentioned there briefly. This is the most dangerous kind of dating scam that women from Eastern Europe (as well as women from Asia) can potentially use on Western men. Usually, some physical, sexual, or mental abuse has to be proven, so in the absence of actual abuse these women can get creative in fabricating the evidence of abuse.
Whether or not the men can prove their innocence in court, the resulting divorce is usually very hard on them emotionally and financially.
The women usually walks out of the marriage with a green card and a divorce settlement.
Needless to say, such actions throw the families in legal turmoil, and the husbands find themselves in an uphill battle fighting the legal system to prove their innocence.If you fail to file during this time, your spouse’s resident status will be terminated and he or she may be subject to removal from the United States. citizen, once you file Form I-130, your spouse is eligible to apply for a nonimmigrant K-3 visa.For more information, see the “Remove Conditions on Permanent Residence Based on Marriage” page. This will entitle him or her to come to the United States to live and work while the visa petition is pending. Note that you are not required to file Form I-129F. After a visa number becomes available, apply to adjust status to permanent residency using Form I-485. When Form I-130 is approved and a visa is available, it will be sent for consular processing and the consulate or embassy will provide notification and processing information. If you have been married less than 2 years when your spouse is granted permanent resident status, your spouse will receive permanent resident status on a conditional basis.(Note that Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card, is not used for this purpose.)You must apply to remove conditional status within the 90-day period before the expiration date on the conditional resident card.
