I recently married a foreign guy that I'd dated for a few months. When I met him I was going through a lot of trouble with my job and eventually decided to quit. He was very supportive during this time. When I quit I decided to move back to my birth country (I have dual citizenship). He asked me to stay and marry him, saying that he didn't believe in long distance relationship. Now here it goes.
Before we married he told me he had a green card. He later changed and said that he was still on a student visa (he is going for his Master's) and that his first wife had screwed him up with immigration. After we got married I became a little suspicious and under some pressure he told me that he had abandoned his case and that he didn't have a visa anymore, in other words he was illegal.
I got really angry and left town for 2 days. I came back and he said that it wasn't a big deal and that he had given me enough information to marry him.
I became more suspicious and started to go through his stuff as he does not open up about his past easily. I found a bunch of letters from immigration stating that his 1st marriage
was denied due to fraudulent marriage, he also claimed to be the father of her child but that was proven to be a false statement according to immigration. He also doen't come forward with the truth and keeps on lying. This happened when he was about 25 yrs old, he is now 32. When we fought I said that if he uses me I would deport him and he said I would regret.
I cried, screamed and felt betrayed. He said that he didn't tell because it didn't affect me yet. I said how so? You won't be able to legalize yourself due to fraud and you wanted to have kids soon?
I could be in my country working, now I have to wait to change my name back. I spent money changing car title, name, DL, SSN. I am certain he was trying to commit fraud again through our marriage w/out letting me know (simply dragging me to immigration clueless).
I am at another state at a friends house.
He owns a car and a house.
What are my rights?
