I had recently just gotten married, and a few days ago I had just found out that my new husband is already legally married to someone for immigration purposes. He's a US citizen who'm had married a family friend a few months back. From what I have found out, he had filed a k1 visa for her back in 2005, arrived here the begining of this year, married her within the time frame, filed for I-485, and got approved a month ago, all of which he had managed to keep this hidden from me, how he managed, I do not know. At the same time that it was going on, we got pregnant in 2005, had our first born in 2006, bought a car and renting a place together, got married legally a month ago (had no problems obtaining a marriage license), and expecting our second child in january.
My questions are, 1) how far do they investigate immigration marriages? She's already been approved for her green card. Do they still do an ongoing investigation, and how deep do they investigate this? Do they look through all the public records? 2) What are the consequences for not only him but me? I've been a permanent residence for 19 years and Im in the process of becoming a citizen, made it just in time before the fees went up. Would they do an investigation on me too if they found out?
I already know that not only did he comitt fraud, but also poligamy. No matter what, im sticking by his side. I know his actions were bad decisions on his part, but I also understand that he was helping out not only a family friend, but also his family as well. We are in the process if finding a lawyer, but I want input from others as well.
