    That's great. Tell Patricia hello for me.


    We're doing really well. Khalid got his 2 year EAD and is already
    working. He's also enrolled in some college courses. Funny thing, even
    though he's from Marakesh, he thinks the heat in Texas is worse than
    Africa. I'm afraid he's right.

    Take is easy....

    We'll need to move to Texas then.... I
    love the heat.
    We were in FL recently for a vacation, and it was over
    100F.... pretty nice.

    heat....LOL

    I have relatives in Florida and I can't stand the humidity
    there!! It totally drains me.

    Dutch, you can have this heat. I can't
    stand July and August in Texas, but I wouldn't trade the winters.

    Leslie, I'm with you on that one. When winter comes
    here I remember why I suffer through summer

    Great. Glad you like America. Now go home and come back when you have
    something to offer. We really don't need yet another foreigner who has
    no means of support and just likes the opportunity of possibly
    succeeding here. This is exactly why US immigration laws requiring
    sponsorship. Sure a lot of people like the boundless opportunity that
    America offers and they want to come here. But if we simply allowed that
    to happen many would fail and then we have to bail them out.

    You're husband was your sponsor. You lost your sponsor. You should go
    home and come back if you still want to in a legal fashion, which will
    entail either getting another sponsor be it marriage based or employment
    based.

    Sorry if this sounds harsh but I believe it to be reality.

    Good luck.

    Ah... well that *is* a reason!
    Saying people cheat for a reason kinda implies she can do something about it.
    And sometimes, though rarely I would think, that reason is something
    that can be fixed.
    Not sure what she can do now,, Was it just a misreading of the guy OR did you think that he would change when you lived together?
    Counseling would be a start in order to ascertain why he cheated.

    Hey there:

    I am so sorry to hear that. Is there anyway you
    can work it out?, You went thru the K1 process, spent time separated..
    isn't there anything you can do to remain with the man you learnt to
    love?
    You have been married for 2 months, It is hard at first because
    living together 24/7 is very different than seeing each other every 5
    months, it takes time to adjust to marriage life.. but if there is love,
    every situation can be conquered, Maybe I am dreamer.. but That's the
    way I think a marriage should be!
    If you love him.. don't throw
    everything away.. If you no longer love him.. the best thing is to walk
    away, but be sure that's what you really want, because once you walk
    away.. there might not be a turning back..
    I wouldn't worry about my
    immigration status if my marriage was failing.. but then again.. that's
    me.
    Look within your heart.. think twice and if you decide that separate
    ways is what you really want.. then go ahead..
    Good Luck!!

    Hi:

    Talk to a lawyer on this one -- this is a gray area.
    There IS case law that suggests that it is possible -- but it is pre-
    1986 when they introduced the conditional stuff.

    There is NO clear
    answer on this.

    It depends on how much you are willing to fight it.

    Hi, Mr. F,


    Out of curiousity, which case law is that (it's going to be a slow
    weekend here and I need something to sink my teeth into)? And if she
    does fight for it, does she still have to show "positive equities"? I
    doubt she has US citizen or PR relatives besides her husband, and I
    doubt that she has established ties to the community or her job.

    Have you thought about just finding someone else to marry?
    You could file another aos with the new guy. There are lots of guys who
    want to get married.

    I think that is a great idea to find another man to marry.
    then you
    could stay here in the USA.

    That's fine but it just doesn't work like that. Sure she could get
    married - but she's gotta leave the country soon. She cannot use
    marriage to a USC at this point as a way to stay in the country. (And
    getting married on such a rebound is *not* a good idea anyway).

    I
    believe being married to two men at the same time is still illegal- even
    in Utah. Might present some issues at AOS.

    Since no one has asked
    (everyone just assumes it was the evil man), who commited the adultery?
    Your initial post would lead me to believe it was you- since he is so
    adamant in his not wanting to continue the marriage. Just being nosey.
