To do things the right way they have to be married two years before the foreign spouse can apply for citizenship, then they must prove they have a residence in common, and take and pass the test. The same rule should apply to those who want to dump their spouses claiming abuse. If they haven't yet become naturalized, they should be deported. If they were abused, surely it would be better to be back home with their families than live with the abuser.

It's the other way around if you're an American or Canadian WOMAN.

If you're a single woman looking for a foreign man to marry you, you have nothing to worry about. Well, from this agent's point of view.

It's not like it's difficult to find someone here, there's quite a bit of single people here... many of them really interesting.
It's easy to see why ,a Dorky,middle aged,out of shape loser who couldn't get a date here or has weird quirks no sane woman would put up with would be delusional enough to believe a hot 20 something with a great bod would fall madly in love with him.How many times has there been news programs with midddle aged and elderly American pervs going on sex tours overseas?These guys are delusional and a lot of them probably believe prostitutes are interested in them also.They're half right,they'll stick around until the moneys gone or a better offer comes up.

I am a living example of it, we were married for 1.5 years and she told me 3 weeks before she did it a friend told her to do it. we had a fight and i called the Police to my house, the dispatcher heard her yelling on the phone and the cops came fast.. that did nothing for me because i am Black and she is white from Brazil. we went to court the Police report showed nothing of me touching her but the Judge gave her everything she asked for......now i cant go back to a Law Enforcement job because of it.

Sad? Maybe.

This has been happening for generations. Nothing new. I do feel sorry for the chumps, men and women alike, who are so desperate they fall for this type of scam.

This ain't nothing new, but sad the great lengths people will go to for love. Years and years ago, i knew of a case, sad one at that, where this happened, i do not know the nationality of the women in question i do know she was 23 at the time, The man, not quite sure of his age, but at least 13 years older.

The marriage was ok for a while, they lived in O.C. and things seemed good. But there was always something there, just could not put your finger on it.

Lo and behold, one day while the husband was at work, this women, cleaned him literally of house and home, taking everything with her. He worked for a moving company. He came home from work, and was literally shaken visibly, everything he had ever worked for was gone.

She took everything, furniture, from glasses, to every day dinnerware, pots and pans, you name it she took it. It is very sad, for the cases where the women really does love the Man, and he wants nothing more then a trophy wife, and for the Man who truly loves the women from another place, and she wants nothing more then to take him for everything he's got. And then dump him.
Sad that so many are really so desperate to find that thing you call love.

There's a Mexican radio station for illegals where they suggest doing just that for the purpose of getting a U visa.

One woman caller was talking about how she had HIV from her first husband which she found out when she was pregnant with her first child. She had another child with him, he died from AIDS, and she got with another guy and had two more kids and she gave him HIV but luckily for the kids they were all negative.

She was afraid of being deported and since her boyfriend was angry at her when he found out about the HIV, they suggested she file a domestic abuse case against him so she could get the U visa and stay.

Another case, a guy was found with drugs and they suggested he claim someone planted the drugs on him, that way he could be a victim and be given the U visa.

The sad thing is that there has to be some kind of police report so the U visa seeker can claim victimhood easily.

Unfortunately this has been going on for many many years. Russian, Ukrainian, Thai, and Filipino women are especially notorious for it.

This been happening since the 80's, nothing new. I dont know why you are all surprised. One of my friends marry a girl just for the papers. She pay him 25.000 dollars and when she got the papers they got divorced. Well, after you get it you have to wait at least 2 years to get divorced. But after she got her papers they never saw each other again after those 2 years to fill the divorce. People do it ALL THE TIME. I dont see anything wrong with it.
