Thread: I-360 VAWA SCAM; MARRIAGE FRAUD; DOMINICAN REPUBLIC

  1. #1
    I need some advice on an embarrassing and horrible situation with my immigrant wife born in the Dominican Republic. I am a scout for professional baseball players, and many might know that the Dominican Republic is a hotbed for MLB (Major League Baseball) talent. I befriended a minor league baseball player here in the USA, and he is originally from the Dominican Republic. After getting to know him for sometime he welcomed me to his country in December of 2006 on a baseball scouting trip. When I arrived, he also surprised me and offered up a (claimed to be) longtime childhood best friend (young woman) that was interested in meeting me. I wasn't really interested in meeting a woman in the DR however; he convinced me that she was the perfect woman for me. Beautiful, smart, very humble, from the 'campo' (which in Spanish means, from the country (as opposed to the 'City') and had good wholesome country values.
    Long story short, she took my breath away with her kindness, great family, and of course her willingness to please me like I was the most handsome man she had ever met in her whole life. In 2006 when I met her, I was 33 and she was 23. She tricked me into marrying her and then submitting the paperwork to bring her to this country on a marriage visa (along with her blood child of 7 years old - not mine). We were married 02/16/07, but she didn't get her K3 and her sons K4 visa to enter the country until 10/11/07. They arrived here on 10/12/07. Marriage was good (even though there were 'Red Flags' of marriage fraud that I neglected to observe - of course until now). But in general her overall personality to me was decent UNTIL she was getting nervous about me ever filing the I-486 and I-765 paperwork to adjust status for both her and her son. She insisted on going back to the Dominican Republic to visit family twice (August '08 & again just this past Christmas/New Year '08/'09). Both vacations were for two weeks at a time, and quite costly as my children (American whom I have custody of) also joined us on the vacations. I explained to her, because of the very expensive vacations she demanded (both two week vacations), I had to postpone the filing of the I-485 and I-765 paperwork for her and her son (~$2000 for everything) as her biological son also needed me to file I-130 petition separately for him now that he is here in the USA with my wife.
    She threatened me that I had until 10/31/08 (BEFORE we went on the past Christmas/New Years vacation) to file all the necessary I-485, I-765 and her sons I-130 paperwork, so that she could officially become a permanent resident of the US and receive her green cards for her and her biological (now 8 year old) son. I expressed to my wife that these were difficulty financial times with the economy being what it is, and me being in sales (on commission as a job). She could have cared less, as I've come to find out; she just wanted her green card and permission to defraud both myself and USCIS. I ended up biting the bullet and honoring her demand to file the paperwork on 10/31/08 (actually reluctantly forgoing a mortgage payment) to do just that for her. She claimed she needed the paperwork done, as she was very nervous about flying to the DR and back to the USA again without having me file the adjustment of status application for her and her son. (Another likely excuse, so I've come to painfully find out). Once I received the NOA for confirmation of the I-485, I-765 and her sons I-130 (11/12/08) and she and her son got fingerprinted and the biometrics done. The relationship began to go down hill from there. She no longer wanted to have *** with me, and constantly complained of massive 'headaches', 'stomach pains' and just that overall she was 'too tired'. I thought this to be quite strange. She would now also pull her 8 year old biological son from his own bedroom into our marital bed, and he would sleep alongside her, thus making me sleep downstairs on the couch. This horrible behavior and outright disrespect for me and my biological children continued when visiting the DR over the Christmas/New Years vacation. In front of her own family she proceeded to 'get upset' over very little things with me, and used that as excuses not to talk to me on Christmas and New Years (out official anniversary as we originally me on 12/31/07). I was distraught, as I truly loved this woman and thought that she in turn loved me. She even threatened me that she and her son would not return to the USA with us at the end of our vacation (01/04/09). Again, very 'petty' type argument excuses as to why the change of heart. I believe that she thought since she got the NOA1 for the adjustment of status, work authorization for her and her son on 11/12/08 before we left for the DR, she was home free not to return with me, as her K3 and sons K4 visa stamps are valid until 10/11/09. She thought she could stay in the DR, while I and my biological American children would return to the marital residence in Upstate, New York, while she stayed with her family in the DR. She would return separately to reunite with her (what I have now come to find out, longtime baseball player Dominican boyfriend) who is staying in Miami, FL now.
    She ended up coming back to Upstate, NY with my kids, but literally left us all hanging to the morning of our planned return to the USA to get on the plane. None the less, we returned to our Upstate, NY marital residence on 01/04/09, only to find out things got considerably worse from there out. My wife completely obtained from having *** with me. Note - since the 11/12/08 NOA receipt of $$ and proof of processed I-485, I-1765 and I-130 for her son, we only had *** two times. Once because she thought I was getting 'suspicious' of her frivolous behavior, and I honestly believe she engaged out of pity or more then likely to 'keep me off her tail' of deception and fraud. The 2nd time was because she wanted some more clothing and a $5000 advance from me to begin construction of her mothers dream home in the Dominican Republic (which I stupidly agreed to front to her). Again, before I filed her permanent residency paperwork, we would engage in sexual relations 3-4 times every week before we went to bed at night. Clearly making love only two times during a period from 11/12/08 - 02/23/09, something was desperately wrong here. I'm using the date of 02/23/09 as a date, because that is the evening that I confronted my wife about the 'tipoff' I received about the extra-marital affair(s) she was having physically/sexually with two-ex boyfriends, and then another ex-boyfriend who now lives in Spain, via phone/internet/web chat ***. On the eve of 02/23/08, I confronted her very calmly regarding the proof I had uncovered regarding sexual relations that she had on multiple occasions with an ex-boyfriend DURING the time we were in the DR just this past Christmas/New Years holiday. Keep in mind, she did NOT have *** with me the entire time when we were there, and only once there after when returning to the USA before leaving the marital residence forever on 02/26/09. Once I confronted my wife with the question of "Who is "***" and did you have sexual relations with him while in the DR on this past trip?" She immediately responded with "Who told you this?" {Instead of actually answering the question/allegation}. She then followed up with a request of an immediate divorce and one-way plane tickets for both her and her biological son back to the Dominican Republic. I decided not to engage in further 'difference of opinions' with her, and proceeded to sleep on the couch (as she went into her biological sons bedroom and pulled him into our marital bedroom bed to sleep along side her). The next morning I had to travel on business to NYC, and returned late Wednesday evening. The morning of 02/26/09, after all the kids were off to school, I decided to give my wife a response to her demands two evenings before. I said, "I have decided to honor your request for an immediate divorce and that I would be contacting USCIS Immigration regarding the process of your request for one-way plane tickets for your and your son, and legal return to the Dominican Republic." When I said the said the second part of her original request of me, I watched her eyes light up with "fear and surprise". I decided to 'call her bluff', as at this point I knew that she wanted a divorce, as she never loved me in the first place. However, she had no intentions over leaving this country until she had that green card and work authorization in her hand! I left that morning to head over to the cell phone company to subpoena phone records for her cell phone. When I returned to the home about 2 1/2 hours later, she was already gone! I have later come to find out that she headed down the "Spanish Action League", which is basically a community outreach program for anything and everything to do with people from Latin American and need help for just about anything. She walks in there and tells her a story (what story, I obviously cannot exactly confirm or deny), however I know one thing for sure. She told them lies about me and that how she 'feared for hers and her sons lives' {complete BS). As clearly the only thing she feared, was that I have now found out the truth about my wife, that she married be solely for the purposes of entering this country to receive immigration benefits. None the less, this Spanish Action League, walked her over to a battered women’s domestic violence shelter for assistance. Of coarse this shelter welcomed both her and her son with 'open arms', and they showed her the way to obtain a TOP (Temporary Order of Protection) against me. First they told her to call the police (afternoon of 02/26/09) and get a police escort to the marital residence (which I might remind you that she left that morning of). She returned with the police demanding both her and her sons passports (with Visa stamps) and to enter the home to pack suitcases for her and her son. I gave the passports to the officer against my better judgment, as I was planning on turning them in to ICE (Immigration & Customs Enforcement) immediately. She ends up leaving the home after obtaining the passports for her and her son and a couple suitcases full over clothing, a laptop and other personal items. The police informed me that they had to fill out a DIR report, because of the phone call made by either the Spanish Action League or Vera House on my wives behalf. I was disappointed, however after reviewing the report, it said nothing in there bad about me. Just that we had an argument on the eve of 02/23/09 and that I was holding her and her sons passports (which again I gave to the police when they arrived for the escort into the home for some of my wife and her sons belongings).
    On the afternoon 03/02/09, to my surprise an officer from the Sheriffs Dept. showed up at my doorstep and personally served me with a TOP (Temporary Order of Protection). It was signed for by a local Family Court Referee of the Family Court. I read the false allegations by VERA house (as it was clear the assisted (did entire petition to the court). None the less, the judge decided to issue the TOP and set an adjournment date where I would be afforded an opportunity to defend the fraudulent allegations against me.

    1 - I know that she did this (obtain an order of protection) through guidance from both the Spanish Action League, VERA House and the 'free legal assistance' she can get through these organizations. It's amazing how much either these organizations are in 'agreement' with the alleged victim of domestic violence with absolutely no proof (just her word). Never was there ever an incident between my wife and me, never a medical report, never a witness to any type of violence between my wife and me. Clearly this was a 'defense' mechanism for my wife to attempt to legally stay in the country without the need for financial sponsorship from myself for her permanent residency and work authorization, through the use of filing an 'I-360 Petition' alleging false allegations of being the victim of domestic violence from her US Citizen Spouse.

    2 - I have come to find out, that upon immediate reception of this TOP on 03/02/09, she immediately had her 'free immigration lawyer' file an I-360 Petition siting VAWA and accompanying the bull$hit TOP she got from the local family court (just by attaching a DIR from the 'police escort' she called for to obtain suitcases of clothing and hers and her sons passports). She even ended the police report statement, indicating that she did NOT want to prosecute. Not - that she had any leg to get even a harassment charge against me, as I didn't lay a finger on her.

    3- She left the home permanently on 02/26/09 and has been staying at an abused women’s shelter (VERA House) up to this moment from what I understand, hiding out scared from Immigration. She had Vera house and/or the Spanish Action League call in a 'false reports' about seeing my vehicle in close proximately to a 'Vera house' safe house where my wife was staying at, claiming that she (my wife) feared for her and her sons lives. {Again complete and 100% fabrication and manipulation of this BS Temp order of production). On 03/31/09, the police (plain clothes) showed up at my marital residence and arrested me for an allegation of Criminal Contempt in the 2nd degree - for violating an order of protection (Class A Misdemeanor in NYS). I've never been arrested in my entire life (college graduate, 13 years professional business experience, upstanding citizen of US, registered republican, deacon in my church). None the less, even after explaining to the investigator that showed up at my home that I was being set up by a "green card call girl", who is attempting anything and everything to avoid deportation for alleged marriage fraud for the sole purposes of obtaining immigration benefits. I spent a night in jail, as the judge wasn't there for the arraignment until the following morning. They let me out on pre-trial release, based on absolute zero history a criminal file/background. The arraignment judge also took note and said to the DA, "how do I know he just wasn't driving down any street as opposed to 'deliberately knowing' where a Vera house safe house location is?" {according the police, they (the police) aren't even privileged to where these Vera house safe houses are located at.

    4 - We had a family court date for 04/06/09 as to where I was afforded the opportunity (with my divorce attorney present) to attempt to get this bull$hit and unwarranted TOP thrown out of court do to deliberate fraud and lies for the sole purpose intent to assist my wife in obtaining status as a permanent resident of the US. The judge ended up not making a decision to abolish the TOP at this time due to in addition to the petition I received a copy of accompanied with the BS DIR report (police escort to my house to get a suitcase), because he said that my wife had issued testimony on 04/02/09 when she came into the family court (ironically alongside an advocate from the Spanish Action League that volunteered herself to the court as a 'translator' as my wives native language is Spanish) that alleged that she was 'scared for her life' of me. My lawyer immediately asked for a voice recording/transcript of the proceeding and testimony of my wife from 04/02/09. We (my lawyer and I listened to it) and it was COMPLETE fabrication and lies. In fact my wife I believe incriminated herself more when this goes to trial, as she clearly begins about being scared of being deported, but after four to five interruptions of her 'advocate'/translator, changed her path and then mentioned being scared of me. The judge (or court referee as he's called) seemed to be assisting my wife by 'leading her' down the path of the right questions she could answer for him to feel comfortable issuing a TOP. Both my lawyer and I were surprised and disappointed at this behavior from the judge. Clearly he knows nothing about immigration, nor the fact that my wife has an elaborate marriage fraud allegation against her. Judge then schedules for trial on 05/21/09.
    {NOTE} We took the opportunity (as this was the first time I've seen or had any contact with my wife) since her left the marital residence permanently) to serve my wife with the ACTION FOR DIVORCE that I filed on 03/17/09. In NYS she has 20 days to respond (after personal service).

    5 - Yesterday I receive a phone call from yet ANOTHER police agency, claiming that Vera house (another location) has received harassing phone calls from MY CELL PHONE as to where I have alleged to identify myself as an attorney and I'm looking to confirm the whereabouts of my wife. This was again another 'false claim', as my wife is trying to do ANYTHING to make it look like she is the victim of domestic violence abuse from her spouse, as that is her ONLY leg to stand on to stay in this country (through VAWA and I-360). I told the police that I have a Verizon cell phone, and I can pull down all call records over the internet and prove that I never made any calls into a Vera house shelter or office looking for my wife. I also told the officer, that after I present the factual data to her I want to have criminal charges and an arrest made of my wife for deliberately filing a false report to attempt to have me again arrested for another alleged violation of an order of protection. I am absolutely appalled that a person (and the law) permits someone to use these TOP's as a "sword as opposed to a shield". Clearly my wife has her own personal agenda to defraud myself (which she's already done) and continue to defraud the US government for the sole purposes of receiving immigration benefits.

    What I have done since my wife left the marital residence on 02/26/09:
    1 - I turned the marital residence upside down and found multiple proof points of evidence to demonstrate that this was a marriage of convenience for the sole purposes of my wife deliberately and premeditated defrauding myself (US Citizen) and the US government of immigration benefits. Here's a list of what I have:
    ** Upon my immediate return to the US after our visit at the US Embassy overseas to attempt obtain her visa back in October 2007, I began to have symptoms of green/yellow discharge from my ***** and a severe burning sensation. I immediately visited the clinic to have it tested. To my surprise I was confirmed to have contracted an STD (sexually transmitted disease) medically named {Neisseria Gonorrhoeae} - or commonly know as GON-OR-IAH. The doctor confirmed that I contracted the disease within the last 15 days, and asked if I knew where I would have obtained it from. I stated that I had only been with my soon to be joining me here in the US, immigrant wife from the Dominican Republic. I was with her for 10 days during a planned visit to the US Embassy and we had sexual relations more then 10 times during our time together over that 10 day period. I only had sexual relations with my wife throughout our entire marriage as I practiced monogamy, and for this reason my wife was on the pill, and felt safe regarding unprotected *** as she claimed to be 100% monogamous to me as well. As you will see as we move down here in the evidence pool, I have since come to find out otherwise. Keep in mind that since my return to the USA on 10/04/07 my wife was not permitted to return with my after our visit with the US Embassy as they were missing a couple of items before they could hand the visas to my wife and her son. After receiving the unfortunate medical results on the evening of 10/07/07, I immediately phoned my wife abroad, and confronted her with the bad news regarding my positive test for Neisseria Gonorrhoeae. She acted 100% surprised and confused, thus began to cry over the phone. She claimed that she didn't want me to think bad of her, that she was 'unfaithful' to me and intent fully transmitted an STD to me. She said that she must have contracted the STD from a recent birthday party that she attended at her sister-in-laws home in the Dominican Republic. She claims that she didn't plan on spending the evening at her sister-in-laws home that night, however it was too late to return home and didn't have a change of clothing. She claimed to have borrowed what she is now alleging to be a "soiled" pair of panties that must have contained the STD, which she then must have subsequently contracted via direct contact with the "soiled" panties, and then unknowingly transmitted the STD to me while we were together in on our honeymoon/visa visit in late September/early October for 10 days. She said in the past that this particular sister-in-law was quite promiscuous and had many extra-marital affairs, she could see her definitely having an STD and transmitting it through borrowed 'soiled' underwear. Because love being 'blind' and me wanting to afford her the benefit of the doubt, I believed her story. She ended up getting her and her sons Visas approved on 10/11/07, and entered the USA for the first time on 10/12/07 and proceeded to live with me and my children in our marital residence in Upstate, NY. **I have copies of all medical records for the diagnosis and treatment of the GON-OR-IAH for both me, and my attorney has subpoenaed the same clinic for the treatment of the disease for my wife, as I immediately took her to the same clinic to be treated upon her arrival here to the USA.

    2 - We subpoenaed multiple phone records from the two cell phone that I bought for her to exclusively use here in the US as well as the calling card company that I exclusively used to rechargeable calling card minutes. To my surprise she has had over 1,200 phone/text/phone/video calls and messages placed to and from her (what I have come to know) as her longtime boyfriend (minor league baseball player) originally from the Dominican Republic, but here on a working visa for professional baseball. This is the SAME baseball player that had befriended me back in 2005, and introduced me to my future wife in the DR in December 2006. I've come to find out that this baseball player (who is also married to another Dominican woman) had (now my wife) as his girlfriend on the side in the DR for a year and a half BEFORE I ever met my future wife. They in turn made a 'deal', that she (my wife) would give herself up sexually, court me and thoroughly convince me (with the help of her family) into marrying her and bringing her and her son to the US on a marriage/family visa. Then once my wife attained her permanent residence and it was 'safe' for her to divorce me without any risk or alleged marriage fraud or deportation, she would do just that, and then marry her longtime Dominican boyfriend, (the baseball player) - who is ultimately looking for permanent residence here in the USA and has been looking for a way to do this for sometime now to assist in his elevation from the minor leagues to the major leagues, by NOT requirement his team to have to continue to file for a working visa every year and so that he can permanently stay in the USA to work/play baseball without restrictions. The first call that my wife EVER made back to the Dominican Republic once setting foot in the USA for the first time after obtaining her cell phone on 10/23/07, was surprisingly NOT to her mother who she also talked to on a daily basis, but rather to her longtime minor league baseball player boyfriend! Subsequently after talking to him on 10/23/07 for 27 minutes, she then proceeded to call two more longtime ex-boyfriends (which I've come to find out aren't really ex-boyfriends and she's had sexual relations with DURING our marriage). One is located currently in SPAIN (migrated from the DR) and the other is in the Dominican Republic. So she was 'working' two more boyfriends on the side, along with her soon to be (after she divorced me) minor league baseball player boyfriend, whom she had the 'master plan' to defraud the US government with for the sole purposes of receiving immigration benefits. {NOTE} My attorney and I are still awaiting the photo/video exchanges of alleged sexual photos between my wife and the minor league baseball player, however hope to have those shortly. There were quite a few occasions during the period of 10/23/07 (11 days after my wife got into this country!!!!) and 02/24/09 (when I confronted my wife about the allegations of infidelity I had uncovered against her), in which the call phone record history would indicated video/photo chat exchanges through the internet from the Verizon wireless online call detail report I was able to pull down. Again, we're just awaiting the actual photos/videos exchanged back and forth and hope to have those shortly.

    3 - Western Union money transfer slips of over $5,000 sent by my wife to her family members (unbenownced to me) from monies stolen from my wallet and/or ATM card over a period of time beginning on 10/30/07 - 02/19/09. She also has confirmed sent 15 separate money transfers totaling over $900 to her longtime boyfriend (minor league baseball player) during his time here in the USA in New Jersey and Miami, and when he was in the Dominican Republic as well, as he frequented back and forth (beginning 11/30/07 - 02/09/09). She paid for all of these items in cash stolen from my wallet over period of time unknown to me, as she would more then likely steal $20 a day or more out of my wallet without me knowing (again every day).

    4 - I confirmed from a meeting with her local Upstate, NY Dominican/American hairdresser that my wife in fact had been deliberately defrauding me and had a 'premeditated' and thoroughly planned out plan to 'grab/catch me' in the DR, and never let me go. Make me marry her and bring her hear to the USA. She then planned on receiving her green card/permanent residency and then divorcing me to marry her longtime boyfriend, the minor league baseball player originally from the Dominican Republic. This friend also confirmed, that when I was away at a week long job training event in Colorado Springs, CO - my wife and her longtime Dominican baseball player boyfriend had a plan for her boyfriend to fly up to Upstate, NY from Newark, NJ and stay at a hotel for 3 days. My wife would meet him every morning after she put her son on the bus, at the hotel and have day long sexual relations with him until the children returned home from School. She would make sure that she left the hotel with enough time to be at the marital residence so that the children would not be unattended or worried about my wives whereabouts. She spent more then 5 hours a day for three days straight (05/19/08 - 05/21/08) at this hotel with the minor league player. As far as the proof I was able to obtain, I have a copy of the hotel folio receipt where the room is in the name of the minor league baseball player, and the hotel registration card was paid for IN CASH by my wife at the time of check in (05/19/08) and signed for "clear as day" in my wives name. We subpoenaed the hotel for the hotel folio/receipt and registration card, and we are now asking for surveillance videos of their room (hallway outside) as we have the room number that they were alleged to be having sexual relations in for three days straight. We definitely got her on this one for sure!

    5 - I wrote a letter and had it notarized to the USCIS, which I had delivered with copies of all the proof mentioned about to the local USCIS field office on 03/11/09 during an INFOPASS appointment I was able to obtain. In the body of the letter, I talk to the allegations that my wife defrauded me into thinking that she loved me, however clearly I had recently come to find out that she married me solely to obtain immigration benefits for her and her biological son. In this letter I ask that I would like to immediately withdraw my I-184 Affidavit of Support for both of the {still pending} I-485 applications to adjust status for my wife and her son. I also asked to have the I-130 (pending) for her biological son. I clearly stated that due to the fact that I was deliberately defrauded unknowingly by wife, that I am asking to have their pending I-485 applications denied due to fraud and that ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) be notified immediately before they attempt to run and hide somewhere here in the US. To my surprise and disappointment, after presenting the letter and accompanying evidence, I asked to speak with an ICE officer, and USCIS said that it wasn't possible. I said that this was a matter of deliberate fraud and if proven guilty in front of an immigration judge, would I believe be grounds for immediate deportation. They told me that they would send the letter and the documents I provided to the Buffalo, NY field office as that is where the "interview" for the green card/permanent residency would take place. She said she can't do anything with ICE until a denial of the I-485 applications has been made official.

    6 - I have drafted a second letter dated 04/09/09 (notarized) indicating more proof that I had uncovered since the initial info pass visit on 03/11/09, as well as attaching the official action of divorce that my attorney served my wife with on 04/06/09. Again, I was not allowed to speak with an ICE officer to present copies of all the evidence I have. They (USCIS) that I don't need to be worried that all evidence will be sent immediately to the Buffalo, NY field office so that an immigration officer can look at it prior to our upcoming visit that will more then likely happen in May 09.

    QUESTIONS:

    1 - I am VERY VERY concerned about my name being intentionally slandered as an "abuser", again ironically the same day after I confronted her with the evidence I had regarding infidelity and deliberate and pre-meditated marriage fraud on my wives part. Does she have a good chance of keeping this TOP in place (because she now as a charge of violating that order) again? Keep in mind this is the 'core' basis of her already submitted I-360 self petition (VAWA) to attempt to attain permanent residency without assistance from the original sponsor (me) who brought her and her son into this country.

    2 - Is it true that even when USCIS denies the I-485 petitions because they no longer have an I-864 Affidavit of support to accompany them, they will NOT send this case to ICE for fraud investigation for alleged deliberate marriage fraud on the part of my wife, because my wife (with the help with the Spanish Action League, Vera house (women’s shelter) and her 'pro-bono' attorney courtesy of Vera house) filed an I-360 self petition (VAWA), and that pending petition can "TRUMP" any immigration proceeding or alleged marriage fraud allegations (even with SUPER strong evidence of deliberate intent?????)

    3 - This is costing me thousands of dollars in legal fees ($225/hr) and I'm concerned that in the end she will win, not because she's telling the truth, as clearly the evidence that I have is so strong and her intentions to defraud are evident even to a child, let alone an immigration judge (whom I am sure has seen scams similar to this one before) against innocent US male citizens with attractive young foreign women with corrupt intentions to defraud the unsuspecting US male citizen and the United States government and taxpayers. Is it worth it, or will she win in the end, because all the evidence that I have against her won't mean ANYTHING, as the self petition will be approved regardless due to the false claims, TOP she fraudulently obtained, and the social worker affidavit support that she attached to the I-360 VAWA self petition from the Spanish Action League and VAWA??

    4 - What else can I be doing? I looked online and it appears that I-360 Petitions are taking more then 12 months to hear a response from the USCIS Vermont Service Center (VAWA Unit), therefore she submitted this in early March 2009 (next day after getting TOP against me), and more then likely it won't be reviewed until early March 2010. Her and her sons Visa stamps expire on 10/11/2009, so would they be considered illegal after this date if the I-360 is still pending? I would imagine they'll be getting a denial on the I-485 petitions (which keep in mind got them into this country in the first place) before the end of May or June (after the interview with the immigration office in Buffalo, NY). I imagine they'll get the standard 'you are ordered to self/voluntarily deport' once their permanent residency applications are denied due to the fact that I requested to withdraw the accompanying I-864 affidavit of support.

    5- How can I get ICE involved NOW without waiting for the 'red tape' and the actual interview that may be coming up in May. Clearly if ICE saw the pile of evidence I have, this would be a clear cut case of marriage fraud on the part of my wife, I would think ICE would obtain her and put her in front of an immigration judge? How do I do this?

    Thanks for reading and I'm looking for any and all feedback, as I'm hoping my post here assists any other US male citizens to be aware of the scams that are going on outside of the USA from the Dominican Republic. After further research, the Dominican Republic, Nigeria and the Philippines are the three highest fraud countries in the world. I'm said to say, I will never trust anyone again, as this baseball player who introduced me to my wife as in turn ruined my life.

    I need some advice on an embarrassing and horrible situation with my immigrant wife born in the Dominican Republic. I am a scout for professional baseball players, and many might know that the Dominican Republic is a hotbed for MLB (Major League Baseball) talent. I befriended a minor league baseball player here in the USA, and he is originally from the Dominican Republic. After getting to know him for sometime he welcomed me to his country in December of 2006 on a baseball scouting trip. When I arrived, he also surprised me and offered up a (claimed to be) longtime childhood best friend (young woman) that was interested in meeting me. I wasn't really interested in meeting a woman in the DR however; he convinced me that she was the perfect woman for me. Beautiful, smart, very humble, from the 'campo' (which in Spanish means, from the country (as opposed to the 'City') and had good wholesome country values.
    Long story short, she took my breath away with her kindness, great family, and of course her willingness to please me like I was the most handsome man she had ever met in her whole life. In 2006 when I met her, I was 33 and she was 23. She tricked me into marrying her and then submitting the paperwork to bring her to this country on a marriage visa (along with her blood child of 7 years old - not mine). We were married 02/16/07, but she didn't get her K3 and her sons K4 visa to enter the country until 10/11/07. They arrived here on 10/12/07. Marriage was good (even though there were 'Red Flags' of marriage fraud that I neglected to observe - of course until now). But in general her overall personality to me was decent UNTIL she was getting nervous about me ever filing the I-486 and I-765 paperwork to adjust status for both her and her son. She insisted on going back to the Dominican Republic to visit family twice (August '08 & again just this past Christmas/New Year '08/'09). Both vacations were for two weeks at a time, and quite costly as my children (American whom I have custody of) also joined us on the vacations. I explained to her, because of the very expensive vacations she demanded (both two week vacations), I had to postpone the filing of the I-485 and I-765 paperwork for her and her son (~$2000 for everything) as her biological son also needed me to file I-130 petition separately for him now that he is here in the USA with my wife.
    She threatened me that I had until 10/31/08 (BEFORE we went on the past Christmas/New Years vacation) to file all the necessary I-485, I-765 and her sons I-130 paperwork, so that she could officially become a permanent resident of the US and receive her green cards for her and her biological (now 8 year old) son. I expressed to my wife that these were difficulty financial times with the economy being what it is, and me being in sales (on commission as a job). She could have cared less, as I've come to find out; she just wanted her green card and permission to defraud both myself and USCIS. I ended up biting the bullet and honoring her demand to file the paperwork on 10/31/08 (actually reluctantly forgoing a mortgage payment) to do just that for her. She claimed she needed the paperwork done, as she was very nervous about flying to the DR and back to the USA again without having me file the adjustment of status application for her and her son. (Another likely excuse, so I've come to painfully find out). Once I received the NOA for confirmation of the I-485, I-765 and her sons I-130 (11/12/08) and she and her son got fingerprinted and the biometrics done. The relationship began to go down hill from there. She no longer wanted to have *** with me, and constantly complained of massive 'headaches', 'stomach pains' and just that overall she was 'too tired'. I thought this to be quite strange. She would now also pull her 8 year old biological son from his own bedroom into our marital bed, and he would sleep alongside her, thus making me sleep downstairs on the couch. This horrible behavior and outright disrespect for me and my biological children continued when visiting the DR over the Christmas/New Years vacation. In front of her own family she proceeded to 'get upset' over very little things with me, and used that as excuses not to talk to me on Christmas and New Years (out official anniversary as we originally me on 12/31/07). I was distraught, as I truly loved this woman and thought that she in turn loved me. She even threatened me that she and her son would not return to the USA with us at the end of our vacation (01/04/09). Again, very 'petty' type argument excuses as to why the change of heart. I believe that she thought since she got the NOA1 for the adjustment of status, work authorization for her and her son on 11/12/08 before we left for the DR, she was home free not to return with me, as her K3 and sons K4 visa stamps are valid until 10/11/09. She thought she could stay in the DR, while I and my biological American children would return to the marital residence in Upstate, New York, while she stayed with her family in the DR. She would return separately to reunite with her (what I have now come to find out, longtime baseball player Dominican boyfriend) who is staying in Miami, FL now.
    She ended up coming back to Upstate, NY with my kids, but literally left us all hanging to the morning of our planned return to the USA to get on the plane. None the less, we returned to our Upstate, NY marital residence on 01/04/09, only to find out things got considerably worse from there out. My wife completely obtained from having *** with me. Note - since the 11/12/08 NOA receipt of $$ and proof of processed I-485, I-1765 and I-130 for her son, we only had *** two times. Once because she thought I was getting 'suspicious' of her frivolous behavior, and I honestly believe she engaged out of pity or more then likely to 'keep me off her tail' of deception and fraud. The 2nd time was because she wanted some more clothing and a $5000 advance from me to begin construction of her mothers dream home in the Dominican Republic (which I stupidly agreed to front to her). Again, before I filed her permanent residency paperwork, we would engage in sexual relations 3-4 times every week before we went to bed at night. Clearly making love only two times during a period from 11/12/08 - 02/23/09, something was desperately wrong here. I'm using the date of 02/23/09 as a date, because that is the evening that I confronted my wife about the 'tipoff' I received about the extra-marital affair(s) she was having physically/sexually with two-ex boyfriends, and then another ex-boyfriend who now lives in Spain, via phone/internet/web chat ***. On the eve of 02/23/08, I confronted her very calmly regarding the proof I had uncovered regarding sexual relations that she had on multiple occasions with an ex-boyfriend DURING the time we were in the DR just this past Christmas/New Years holiday. Keep in mind, she did NOT have *** with me the entire time when we were there, and only once there after when returning to the USA before leaving the marital residence forever on 02/26/09. Once I confronted my wife with the question of "Who is "***" and did you have sexual relations with him while in the DR on this past trip?" She immediately responded with "Who told you this?" {Instead of actually answering the question/allegation}. She then followed up with a request of an immediate divorce and one-way plane tickets for both her and her biological son back to the Dominican Republic. I decided not to engage in further 'difference of opinions' with her, and proceeded to sleep on the couch (as she went into her biological sons bedroom and pulled him into our marital bedroom bed to sleep along side her). The next morning I had to travel on business to NYC, and returned late Wednesday evening. The morning of 02/26/09, after all the kids were off to school, I decided to give my wife a response to her demands two evenings before. I said, "I have decided to honor your request for an immediate divorce and that I would be contacting USCIS Immigration regarding the process of your request for one-way plane tickets for your and your son, and legal return to the Dominican Republic." When I said the said the second part of her original request of me, I watched her eyes light up with "fear and surprise". I decided to 'call her bluff', as at this point I knew that she wanted a divorce, as she never loved me in the first place. However, she had no intentions over leaving this country until she had that green card and work authorization in her hand! I left that morning to head over to the cell phone company to subpoena phone records for her cell phone. When I returned to the home about 2 1/2 hours later, she was already gone! I have later come to find out that she headed down the "Spanish Action League", which is basically a community outreach program for anything and everything to do with people from Latin American and need help for just about anything. She walks in there and tells her a story (what story, I obviously cannot exactly confirm or deny), however I know one thing for sure. She told them lies about me and that how she 'feared for hers and her sons lives' {complete BS). As clearly the only thing she feared, was that I have now found out the truth about my wife, that she married be solely for the purposes of entering this country to receive immigration benefits. None the less, this Spanish Action League, walked her over to a battered women’s domestic violence shelter for assistance. Of coarse this shelter welcomed both her and her son with 'open arms', and they showed her the way to obtain a TOP (Temporary Order of Protection) against me. First they told her to call the police (afternoon of 02/26/09) and get a police escort to the marital residence (which I might remind you that she left that morning of). She returned with the police demanding both her and her sons passports (with Visa stamps) and to enter the home to pack suitcases for her and her son. I gave the passports to the officer against my better judgment, as I was planning on turning them in to ICE (Immigration & Customs Enforcement) immediately. She ends up leaving the home after obtaining the passports for her and her son and a couple suitcases full over clothing, a laptop and other personal items. The police informed me that they had to fill out a DIR report, because of the phone call made by either the Spanish Action League or Vera House on my wives behalf. I was disappointed, however after reviewing the report, it said nothing in there bad about me. Just that we had an argument on the eve of 02/23/09 and that I was holding her and her sons passports (which again I gave to the police when they arrived for the escort into the home for some of my wife and her sons belongings).
    On the afternoon 03/02/09, to my surprise an officer from the Sheriffs Dept. showed up at my doorstep and personally served me with a TOP (Temporary Order of Protection). It was signed for by a local Family Court Referee of the Family Court. I read the false allegations by VERA house (as it was clear the assisted (did entire petition to the court). None the less, the judge decided to issue the TOP and set an adjournment date where I would be afforded an opportunity to defend the fraudulent allegations against me.

    1 - I know that she did this (obtain an order of protection) through guidance from both the Spanish Action League, VERA House and the 'free legal assistance' she can get through these organizations. It's amazing how much either these organizations are in 'agreement' with the alleged victim of domestic violence with absolutely no proof (just her word). Never was there ever an incident between my wife and me, never a medical report, never a witness to any type of violence between my wife and me. Clearly this was a 'defense' mechanism for my wife to attempt to legally stay in the country without the need for financial sponsorship from myself for her permanent residency and work authorization, through the use of filing an 'I-360 Petition' alleging false allegations of being the victim of domestic violence from her US Citizen Spouse.

    2 - I have come to find out, that upon immediate reception of this TOP on 03/02/09, she immediately had her 'free immigration lawyer' file an I-360 Petition siting VAWA and accompanying the bull$hit TOP she got from the local family court (just by attaching a DIR from the 'police escort' she called for to obtain suitcases of clothing and hers and her sons passports). She even ended the police report statement, indicating that she did NOT want to prosecute. Not - that she had any leg to get even a harassment charge against me, as I didn't lay a finger on her.

    3- She left the home permanently on 02/26/09 and has been staying at an abused women’s shelter (VERA House) up to this moment from what I understand, hiding out scared from Immigration. She had Vera house and/or the Spanish Action League call in a 'false reports' about seeing my vehicle in close proximately to a 'Vera house' safe house where my wife was staying at, claiming that she (my wife) feared for her and her sons lives. {Again complete and 100% fabrication and manipulation of this BS Temp order of production). On 03/31/09, the police (plain clothes) showed up at my marital residence and arrested me for an allegation of Criminal Contempt in the 2nd degree - for violating an order of protection (Class A Misdemeanor in NYS). I've never been arrested in my entire life (college graduate, 13 years professional business experience, upstanding citizen of US, registered republican, deacon in my church). None the less, even after explaining to the investigator that showed up at my home that I was being set up by a "green card call girl", who is attempting anything and everything to avoid deportation for alleged marriage fraud for the sole purposes of obtaining immigration benefits. I spent a night in jail, as the judge wasn't there for the arraignment until the following morning. They let me out on pre-trial release, based on absolute zero history a criminal file/background. The arraignment judge also took note and said to the DA, "how do I know he just wasn't driving down any street as opposed to 'deliberately knowing' where a Vera house safe house location is?" {according the police, they (the police) aren't even privileged to where these Vera house safe houses are located at.

    4 - We had a family court date for 04/06/09 as to where I was afforded the opportunity (with my divorce attorney present) to attempt to get this bull$hit and unwarranted TOP thrown out of court do to deliberate fraud and lies for the sole purpose intent to assist my wife in obtaining status as a permanent resident of the US. The judge ended up not making a decision to abolish the TOP at this time due to in addition to the petition I received a copy of accompanied with the BS DIR report (police escort to my house to get a suitcase), because he said that my wife had issued testimony on 04/02/09 when she came into the family court (ironically alongside an advocate from the Spanish Action League that volunteered herself to the court as a 'translator' as my wives native language is Spanish) that alleged that she was 'scared for her life' of me. My lawyer immediately asked for a voice recording/transcript of the proceeding and testimony of my wife from 04/02/09. We (my lawyer and I listened to it) and it was COMPLETE fabrication and lies. In fact my wife I believe incriminated herself more when this goes to trial, as she clearly begins about being scared of being deported, but after four to five interruptions of her 'advocate'/translator, changed her path and then mentioned being scared of me. The judge (or court referee as he's called) seemed to be assisting my wife by 'leading her' down the path of the right questions she could answer for him to feel comfortable issuing a TOP. Both my lawyer and I were surprised and disappointed at this behavior from the judge. Clearly he knows nothing about immigration, nor the fact that my wife has an elaborate marriage fraud allegation against her. Judge then schedules for trial on 05/21/09.
    {NOTE} We took the opportunity (as this was the first time I've seen or had any contact with my wife) since her left the marital residence permanently) to serve my wife with the ACTION FOR DIVORCE that I filed on 03/17/09. In NYS she has 20 days to respond (after personal service).

    5 - Yesterday I receive a phone call from yet ANOTHER police agency, claiming that Vera house (another location) has received harassing phone calls from MY CELL PHONE as to where I have alleged to identify myself as an attorney and I'm looking to confirm the whereabouts of my wife. This was again another 'false claim', as my wife is trying to do ANYTHING to make it look like she is the victim of domestic violence abuse from her spouse, as that is her ONLY leg to stand on to stay in this country (through VAWA and I-360). I told the police that I have a Verizon cell phone, and I can pull down all call records over the internet and prove that I never made any calls into a Vera house shelter or office looking for my wife. I also told the officer, that after I present the factual data to her I want to have criminal charges and an arrest made of my wife for deliberately filing a false report to attempt to have me again arrested for another alleged violation of an order of protection. I am absolutely appalled that a person (and the law) permits someone to use these TOP's as a "sword as opposed to a shield". Clearly my wife has her own personal agenda to defraud myself (which she's already done) and continue to defraud the US government for the sole purposes of receiving immigration benefits.

    What I have done since my wife left the marital residence on 02/26/09:
    1 - I turned the marital residence upside down and found multiple proof points of evidence to demonstrate that this was a marriage of convenience for the sole purposes of my wife deliberately and premeditated defrauding myself (US Citizen) and the US government of immigration benefits. Here's a list of what I have:
    ** Upon my immediate return to the US after our visit at the US Embassy overseas to attempt obtain her visa back in October 2007, I began to have symptoms of green/yellow discharge from my ***** and a severe burning sensation. I immediately visited the clinic to have it tested. To my surprise I was confirmed to have contracted an STD (sexually transmitted disease) medically named {Neisseria Gonorrhoeae} - or commonly know as GON-OR-IAH. The doctor confirmed that I contracted the disease within the last 15 days, and asked if I knew where I would have obtained it from. I stated that I had only been with my soon to be joining me here in the US, immigrant wife from the Dominican Republic. I was with her for 10 days during a planned visit to the US Embassy and we had sexual relations more then 10 times during our time together over that 10 day period. I only had sexual relations with my wife throughout our entire marriage as I practiced monogamy, and for this reason my wife was on the pill, and felt safe regarding unprotected *** as she claimed to be 100% monogamous to me as well. As you will see as we move down here in the evidence pool, I have since come to find out otherwise. Keep in mind that since my return to the USA on 10/04/07 my wife was not permitted to return with my after our visit with the US Embassy as they were missing a couple of items before they could hand the visas to my wife and her son. After receiving the unfortunate medical results on the evening of 10/07/07, I immediately phoned my wife abroad, and confronted her with the bad news regarding my positive test for Neisseria Gonorrhoeae. She acted 100% surprised and confused, thus began to cry over the phone. She claimed that she didn't want me to think bad of her, that she was 'unfaithful' to me and intent fully transmitted an STD to me. She said that she must have contracted the STD from a recent birthday party that she attended at her sister-in-laws home in the Dominican Republic. She claims that she didn't plan on spending the evening at her sister-in-laws home that night, however it was too late to return home and didn't have a change of clothing. She claimed to have borrowed what she is now alleging to be a "soiled" pair of panties that must have contained the STD, which she then must have subsequently contracted via direct contact with the "soiled" panties, and then unknowingly transmitted the STD to me while we were together in on our honeymoon/visa visit in late September/early October for 10 days. She said in the past that this particular sister-in-law was quite promiscuous and had many extra-marital affairs, she could see her definitely having an STD and transmitting it through borrowed 'soiled' underwear. Because love being 'blind' and me wanting to afford her the benefit of the doubt, I believed her story. She ended up getting her and her sons Visas approved on 10/11/07, and entered the USA for the first time on 10/12/07 and proceeded to live with me and my children in our marital residence in Upstate, NY. **I have copies of all medical records for the diagnosis and treatment of the GON-OR-IAH for both me, and my attorney has subpoenaed the same clinic for the treatment of the disease for my wife, as I immediately took her to the same clinic to be treated upon her arrival here to the USA.

    2 - We subpoenaed multiple phone records from the two cell phone that I bought for her to exclusively use here in the US as well as the calling card company that I exclusively used to rechargeable calling card minutes. To my surprise she has had over 1,200 phone/text/phone/video calls and messages placed to and from her (what I have come to know) as her longtime boyfriend (minor league baseball player) originally from the Dominican Republic, but here on a working visa for professional baseball. This is the SAME baseball player that had befriended me back in 2005, and introduced me to my future wife in the DR in December 2006. I've come to find out that this baseball player (who is also married to another Dominican woman) had (now my wife) as his girlfriend on the side in the DR for a year and a half BEFORE I ever met my future wife. They in turn made a 'deal', that she (my wife) would give herself up sexually, court me and thoroughly convince me (with the help of her family) into marrying her and bringing her and her son to the US on a marriage/family visa. Then once my wife attained her permanent residence and it was 'safe' for her to divorce me without any risk or alleged marriage fraud or deportation, she would do just that, and then marry her longtime Dominican boyfriend, (the baseball player) - who is ultimately looking for permanent residence here in the USA and has been looking for a way to do this for sometime now to assist in his elevation from the minor leagues to the major leagues, by NOT requirement his team to have to continue to file for a working visa every year and so that he can permanently stay in the USA to work/play baseball without restrictions. The first call that my wife EVER made back to the Dominican Republic once setting foot in the USA for the first time after obtaining her cell phone on 10/23/07, was surprisingly NOT to her mother who she also talked to on a daily basis, but rather to her longtime minor league baseball player boyfriend! Subsequently after talking to him on 10/23/07 for 27 minutes, she then proceeded to call two more longtime ex-boyfriends (which I've come to find out aren't really ex-boyfriends and she's had sexual relations with DURING our marriage). One is located currently in SPAIN (migrated from the DR) and the other is in the Dominican Republic. So she was 'working' two more boyfriends on the side, along with her soon to be (after she divorced me) minor league baseball player boyfriend, whom she had the 'master plan' to defraud the US government with for the sole purposes of receiving immigration benefits. {NOTE} My attorney and I are still awaiting the photo/video exchanges of alleged sexual photos between my wife and the minor league baseball player, however hope to have those shortly. There were quite a few occasions during the period of 10/23/07 (11 days after my wife got into this country!!!!) and 02/24/09 (when I confronted my wife about the allegations of infidelity I had uncovered against her), in which the call phone record history would indicated video/photo chat exchanges through the internet from the Verizon wireless online call detail report I was able to pull down. Again, we're just awaiting the actual photos/videos exchanged back and forth and hope to have those shortly.

    3 - Western Union money transfer slips of over $5,000 sent by my wife to her family members (unbenownced to me) from monies stolen from my wallet and/or ATM card over a period of time beginning on 10/30/07 - 02/19/09. She also has confirmed sent 15 separate money transfers totaling over $900 to her longtime boyfriend (minor league baseball player) during his time here in the USA in New Jersey and Miami, and when he was in the Dominican Republic as well, as he frequented back and forth (beginning 11/30/07 - 02/09/09). She paid for all of these items in cash stolen from my wallet over period of time unknown to me, as she would more then likely steal $20 a day or more out of my wallet without me knowing (again every day).

    4 - I confirmed from a meeting with her local Upstate, NY Dominican/American hairdresser that my wife in fact had been deliberately defrauding me and had a 'premeditated' and thoroughly planned out plan to 'grab/catch me' in the DR, and never let me go. Make me marry her and bring her hear to the USA. She then planned on receiving her green card/permanent residency and then divorcing me to marry her longtime boyfriend, the minor league baseball player originally from the Dominican Republic. This friend also confirmed, that when I was away at a week long job training event in Colorado Springs, CO - my wife and her longtime Dominican baseball player boyfriend had a plan for her boyfriend to fly up to Upstate, NY from Newark, NJ and stay at a hotel for 3 days. My wife would meet him every morning after she put her son on the bus, at the hotel and have day long sexual relations with him until the children returned home from School. She would make sure that she left the hotel with enough time to be at the marital residence so that the children would not be unattended or worried about my wives whereabouts. She spent more then 5 hours a day for three days straight (05/19/08 - 05/21/08) at this hotel with the minor league player. As far as the proof I was able to obtain, I have a copy of the hotel folio receipt where the room is in the name of the minor league baseball player, and the hotel registration card was paid for IN CASH by my wife at the time of check in (05/19/08) and signed for "clear as day" in my wives name. We subpoenaed the hotel for the hotel folio/receipt and registration card, and we are now asking for surveillance videos of their room (hallway outside) as we have the room number that they were alleged to be having sexual relations in for three days straight. We definitely got her on this one for sure!

    5 - I wrote a letter and had it notarized to the USCIS, which I had delivered with copies of all the proof mentioned about to the local USCIS field office on 03/11/09 during an INFOPASS appointment I was able to obtain. In the body of the letter, I talk to the allegations that my wife defrauded me into thinking that she loved me, however clearly I had recently come to find out that she married me solely to obtain immigration benefits for her and her biological son. In this letter I ask that I would like to immediately withdraw my I-184 Affidavit of Support for both of the {still pending} I-485 applications to adjust status for my wife and her son. I also asked to have the I-130 (pending) for her biological son. I clearly stated that due to the fact that I was deliberately defrauded unknowingly by wife, that I am asking to have their pending I-485 applications denied due to fraud and that ICE (Immigration and Customs Enforcement) be notified immediately before they attempt to run and hide somewhere here in the US. To my surprise and disappointment, after presenting the letter and accompanying evidence, I asked to speak with an ICE officer, and USCIS said that it wasn't possible. I said that this was a matter of deliberate fraud and if proven guilty in front of an immigration judge, would I believe be grounds for immediate deportation. They told me that they would send the letter and the documents I provided to the Buffalo, NY field office as that is where the "interview" for the green card/permanent residency would take place. She said she can't do anything with ICE until a denial of the I-485 applications has been made official.

    6 - I have drafted a second letter dated 04/09/09 (notarized) indicating more proof that I had uncovered since the initial info pass visit on 03/11/09, as well as attaching the official action of divorce that my attorney served my wife with on 04/06/09. Again, I was not allowed to speak with an ICE officer to present copies of all the evidence I have. They (USCIS) that I don't need to be worried that all evidence will be sent immediately to the Buffalo, NY field office so that an immigration officer can look at it prior to our upcoming visit that will more then likely happen in May 09.

    QUESTIONS:

    1 - I am VERY VERY concerned about my name being intentionally slandered as an "abuser", again ironically the same day after I confronted her with the evidence I had regarding infidelity and deliberate and pre-meditated marriage fraud on my wives part. Does she have a good chance of keeping this TOP in place (because she now as a charge of violating that order) again? Keep in mind this is the 'core' basis of her already submitted I-360 self petition (VAWA) to attempt to attain permanent residency without assistance from the original sponsor (me) who brought her and her son into this country.

    2 - Is it true that even when USCIS denies the I-485 petitions because they no longer have an I-864 Affidavit of support to accompany them, they will NOT send this case to ICE for fraud investigation for alleged deliberate marriage fraud on the part of my wife, because my wife (with the help with the Spanish Action League, Vera house (women’s shelter) and her 'pro-bono' attorney courtesy of Vera house) filed an I-360 self petition (VAWA), and that pending petition can "TRUMP" any immigration proceeding or alleged marriage fraud allegations (even with SUPER strong evidence of deliberate intent?????)

    3 - This is costing me thousands of dollars in legal fees ($225/hr) and I'm concerned that in the end she will win, not because she's telling the truth, as clearly the evidence that I have is so strong and her intentions to defraud are evident even to a child, let alone an immigration judge (whom I am sure has seen scams similar to this one before) against innocent US male citizens with attractive young foreign women with corrupt intentions to defraud the unsuspecting US male citizen and the United States government and taxpayers. Is it worth it, or will she win in the end, because all the evidence that I have against her won't mean ANYTHING, as the self petition will be approved regardless due to the false claims, TOP she fraudulently obtained, and the social worker affidavit support that she attached to the I-360 VAWA self petition from the Spanish Action League and VAWA??

    4 - What else can I be doing? I looked online and it appears that I-360 Petitions are taking more then 12 months to hear a response from the USCIS Vermont Service Center (VAWA Unit), therefore she submitted this in early March 2009 (next day after getting TOP against me), and more then likely it won't be reviewed until early March 2010. Her and her sons Visa stamps expire on 10/11/2009, so would they be considered illegal after this date if the I-360 is still pending? I would imagine they'll be getting a denial on the I-485 petitions (which keep in mind got them into this country in the first place) before the end of May or June (after the interview with the immigration office in Buffalo, NY). I imagine they'll get the standard 'you are ordered to self/voluntarily deport' once their permanent residency applications are denied due to the fact that I requested to withdraw the accompanying I-864 affidavit of support.

    5- How can I get ICE involved NOW without waiting for the 'red tape' and the actual interview that may be coming up in May. Clearly if ICE saw the pile of evidence I have, this would be a clear cut case of marriage fraud on the part of my wife, I would think ICE would obtain her and put her in front of an immigration judge? How do I do this?

    Thanks for reading and I'm looking for any and all feedback, as I'm hoping my post here assists any other US male citizens to be aware of the scams that are going on outside of the USA from the Dominican Republic. After further research, the Dominican Republic, Nigeria and the Philippines are the three highest fraud countries in the world. I'm said to say, I will never trust anyone again, as this baseball player who introduced me to my wife as in turn ruined my life.

    Hi Bandek,

    Welcome. Sounds like you've been through the mill. I read your post in its entirety, but still need to ask a few questions because a few things weren't clear. Is your wife and her sons I-485 petitions still pending? Or have they been approved? If they are still pending, you will both need to attend an interview to prove to USCIS that your marriage is bona fide. Clearly, yours did not seem to meet that criteria and you should be able to stop the process at that point. However, that doesn't mean she can't still go the VAWA route. It appears you have enough evidence to prove you weren't abusive to her; but, sometimes the laws are stacked against you.

    As far as ICE being able to intervene, I don't think they have the authority until there is an actual Final Order of Deportation. This won't happen until she has exhausted all appeals through the USCIS process.

    The STD you contracted should have been a serious show stopper for you, but I know love is blind. Sorry you had to learn the hard way and I hope everyone works out for you. Good luck.

    You need to report her to USCIS. After they receive your report, the case will be referred to their fraud unit. Just detail the above in writing to the office having jurisdiction over your place of residence. Include in that letter that you are revoking your sponsorship. Nothing more that you can do.

    Why are you asking for the petitions to be denied The petitions are not yet approved, so you officially just write to ask them to be withdrawn based on fraud.

    Send letter withdrawing apps and accompany letter with evidence and copy of divorce filing.

    One problem you may have with the divorce is New York has a 1 yr seperation requirement I believe before the divorce can be final.

    Dont worry about appeals by her etc as there is no appeal. The applications will have been withdrawn.... END of story. It is not your problem after the withdrawal. ICE is not your concern nor will the alien be at this point. Your main focus right now will be to protect your assets/cash/realestate.

    You are very fortunate that you found out and have opportunity to withdraw the applications before they were approved.


    Move past this desire of revenge for follow thru on deportation. It is not up to you at this point. She will receive a letter advising her of the situation.

    As far as VAWA,. there is nothing you can do about the situation. Your job is to make sure the immigration file is fully documented with her transgressions so that is available for review. You will do this when the apps are withdrawn. They will look at her moral character.

    Question... Were you driving by or looking for them? Did you violate the order? Did you make the phone calls? If not, then you should be pursuing what to do about that organization/individuals that gave the false testimony.

    Good luck in your life, and be more careful in the future



    Withdrawn means no processing.

    Tears fell down my cheek as I read your post. I am so sorry to see another victim.

    I am one too but not VAWA. I can only suggest to you to utilize your Senators and Congressman. Go to www.NumbersUSA.com and check at the bottom right the score card of your representatives and how they fair on immigrations issues.

    Which ever one has a good score card go there for help. If you have family then reach out for help. I hope your children are okay. It is going to be the biggest juggling act of your life to get through this and pretend in their prescense that you have it all together when your dying inside.

    My heart and prayers go out to you. I wish you all the best and if you ever need someone to talk to I'll listen. Hard thinking your the only stupid person out there who has been scammed but your NOT. Being educated doesn't protect you from such unscrupulous people willing to do ANYTHING to get a greencard and citizenship.

    you can private message me on this forum if you wish and I will share with you all I know from personal experience. Some other organizations that I have found helpful too.

    The laws protect the fraud not the victim in this country. So WE the people need to speak up and let our legislators know they will not be elected next term.

    Once my situation settles down I will do all I can in everyway I can to ensure that laws are changed, American are aware of this problem, and those who support illegal immigrants are no longer in office. If I have to go door to door every day of my life.

    Don't be surprised when your friends pull away for they will reach the point when they don't know what to say to you. They care but honestly they feel as helpless as you.

    Take care of your children. Take a day off and have fun with them so they don't feel they have lost you too.

    Judicial Watch is another good organization. www.judicialwatch.com get involved with them.

    I will keep you and your children in my prayers as well as all those victimized by these scum bags.

    Eww I just looked Charles Schumer has a C report card, Gary Ackerman has a D-, and Michael Arcuri a B. Good luck and God Bless you and your family.

    The story has changed a little from the first version posted here.

    http://www.visajourney.com/for...c=183132&hl=passport

    Initially, you took the passports willingly in an attempt to prevent her from leaving.

    This is you,KevinB, right?
