Mohamed is honestly a champ. He is driving around with his dog, making a living for himself and enjoying all that this beautiful country has to offer. He's really living the American dream and seems actually grateful for it. It doesn't really matter if he had to con his way through a marriage, he has become an American and deserves to be here


Theonethatgotawaaayy

Right! Of everyone (besides Mahamit) I feel like Luis of Luis and Molly was the most obvious and it’s still a mystery to me how he didn’t get deported after bailing on her what, a few *months* into the marriage?!


TXGreatRide

Luis was deported, but crawled back, currently he's here illegally, watch single life tell all.


mime454

He has an order of deportation but never got deported. As long as he doesn’t commit a crime or go near government agencies that are mandated immigration reporters, he likely won’t have the police coming to get him out of the country any time soon.


Theonethatgotawaaayy

Whaaattt


Ginger_Soul99

I thought they had to be married for 2 years to avoid deportation. Jorge and Anfisa were married 3 years, Danielle and Mohammed were married 2. Colt and Larissa and Molly and Luis were only married a few months. I don't understand.


Facetunethis

Luis is in proceedings for his removal currently. Covid extended the hammer dropping


Ginger_Soul99

He married a woman in New Jersey shortly after he and Molly divorced. Maybe she isn't a citizen either.


Facetunethis

She apparently isn't, or isn't eligible to sponsor him for another reason. 🤔


petiteaustralienne

He knew her before he married Molly, IIRC she is from the DR too and isn't a US citizen. Molly thinks he used her to get to the US so he could marry the new wife.


DirectFXX

Molly being Molly


petiteaustralienne

I'm not a Molly fan but I don't think it's an unreasonable guess considering how quickly he remarried


AllianceOfTheHams

They are now divorced. It was brought up at the Single Life tell all when Luis was there.


whendidisaythat

Yay!


EtM1980

Larissa has made claims of domestic violence and it can take years to weed through that and determine if there is any validity to it. In the meantime, she’s trying to find another man or another option for staying, if they don’t approve her case. Natalie in the other hand is a mystery to me! I’m wondering if maybe they’ve just quietly separated for now, so she can maintain citizenship?


flatsoda666

The people I’m most confused about are fernanda and Larissa. Their marriages to their husbands were so short (less than a year i think) but they are still in the us, working rights and all. Is the us immigration system less strict than i thought??


Ginger_Soul99

I read yesterday that there is something called a battered spouse waiver. Basically if an immigrant spouse claims to be abused they won't be deported. Jonathan says that this was Fernanda's plan from the beginning and that she has zero evidence to back this up.


OrcasOnStrike

I am guessing (since we don’t know everything behind the scenes) that they are trying to adjust as VAWA self-petitioners, by claiming they suffered extreme cruelty at the hands of their US citizen spouse. Fernanda kept mentioning in Single Life how bad her marriage had been and we’ve seen/heard about the weird things Colt did to Larissa, so they are probably going this route. Current processing times look to be around two years so we’ll see if they get approved in the future.


Appropriate_Reach_97

Yeah Mo got his temp greencard and I remember he was applying for the 10 year which got "backlogged" accd to Danielle. She divorced him instead of annulling to help him out.


Watchingsinceday1

Anything is possible


Appropriate_Reach_97

Ok 45

> I thought they had to be married for 2 years to avoid deportation Source? (FYI there is none because you're wrong) >I don't understand. That's because reddit isn't a source for legal advice.


QuantumHope

Permanent residence generally requires 2 years. https://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/how-i-married-us-citizen-us-citizenship.html https://www.lawinfo.com/resources/immigration/what-happens-when-you-divorce-a-us-citizen.html


MightFew9336

If you're married less than 2 years, the immigrant spouse gets a 2-year conditional visa. After 2 years, you have to petition to remove conditions. If you're no longer married at that point, you can still remove the conditions and get your permanent residency, you just need to prove that it was a bona fide relationship before the divorce.


Ginger_Soul99

Eat shit


CellularPurgatory

Well, I see how your intelligence got in the way now.


Ginger_Soul99

Fucking troll


CellularPurgatory

Huh? Requesting a source isn't trolling. What kind of fact free, feelings based world do you live in?


Ginger_Soul99

When a comment begins with "I thought" no source is required. Just stop.


Zemykitty

It's pretty easy to assume that when a K1 recipient receives a 2 year conditional GC before an adjustment of status can change them to an unconditional GC that would be the required amount of time to stay married. There are loopholes like protecting spouses who claim abuse. So yeah, this person is just trolling to troll.


CellularPurgatory

> easy to assume How do we stop retards from posting?


Zemykitty

It's obviously not working because here you are.


CellularPurgatory

> Just stop Original girl is original.


inima23

TLC perpetuating immigration myths is my biggest pet peeve with this show. Americans are already so ignorant about how immigration actually works and then you throw in more lies and disinformation and only creates more stigma.


gee3Dprints

Thank you for saying this, as a immigrant who came over through this process at least once a season I go "well that's not true" This season, Andrei has to have a job or be deported


hamimono

Distortion and misunderstanding of the K-1 is The Premise of the Show, Matt Sharp’s big revelation that made him a wealthy man. He has discussed this various times.


DirectFXX

Yep not a big surprise


hamimono

He is proud of Frauding everyone.


Motherof42069

Americans love us a good scam!


Hobbscorny

I think the at the only spouse listed in your post who committed straight up fraud was Luis.


Successful_Act65

I think Anfisa was using Jorge. But, again, she is thriving, paying her bills and taxes. She hasn’t broken any laws.


[deleted]

[удалено]


DirectFXX

Yes it is . It’s called fraud


petiteaustralienne

I can't stand either of them but it seemed pretty clear to me that she would have stayed with him had he actually been as wealthy as he claimed and not lied to her. That kind of transactional relationship is not illegal, as Anfisa pointed out do we really think he'd be with her if she wasn't young and attractive?


Successful_Act65

This is true.


MarieOMaryln

No it's not if both parties are consenting and aware. It's still a legitimate relationship, it just doesn't have the fell madly in love story. Friends get married for insurance all the time in America. Love is not a requirement for marriage.


wirefox1

You think Mohammed loved Danielle? What makes you think that?


Motherof42069

You don't have to be in love to have a valid marriage. Some of the best marriages are marriages of "convenience" and historically it is the norm.


petiteaustralienne

I don't think he loved her but I think he would have stayed with her much longer if the situation wasn't so untenable. Same with Larissa and Anfisa.


wirefox1

I agree. He would have used her longer if she had not been so poor and unattractive.


Original-Opportunity

While he definitely scammed her, he absolutely could say she committed fraud by lying about her record, financials, etc.


Successful_Act65

And he is doing well in life here in America. He works, pays his bills and his taxes.


[deleted]

Immigration should run his scamming, Tunisian Love Rat ass back to North Africa.


Appropriate_Reach_97

Spoken like a true Proud Boi!


[deleted]

Whatever, dude. Not everyone loves Mohammed.


Successful_Act65

I don’t like him in the slightest. I just see him objectively.


wirefox1

Only after arriving here under fraudulent circumstances. He ran a big scam, hurt a vulnerable woman, and got what he wanted with little regard for what it would do to her. I see absolutely nothing to admire.


Appropriate_Reach_97

Dinyell stole from her neighbors and her elderly patients in the nursing home. Talk about scammers....


Successful_Act65

Yep. She’s a piece of work herself.


Successful_Act65

However, they are now good friends and he is incredibly supportive of her. More so than the show, itself.


Hobbscorny

I do t think that he was passionately in love with Danielle. But he was going to give it a try.


Jemcdlv

Right, because she smells!


TunisianShark

Best short answer: No they do not have a green card. Even if they did it’s not valid any more. They are on a lot of other visas, even the flimsiest business and student visas last 5 years, as long as you leave US once every 6 months. I am super curious about Mohamed’s visa since he is openly working… I really wonder if that’s gonna run out.


Appropriate_Reach_97

He was applying for his 10 year greencard back in 2018/19, did he get denied? He's been working since.


TunisianShark

I seriously doubt he has a greencard but he must have a visa with a work permit… I believe they are the H category or lesser.


Bants90

Because there is no clear and obvious evidence to support that they used their partners for scamming. The K1 process is done to try and find and eliminate these scammers however people sneak through the cracks as they provide enough evidence. Once they’re here unless they can be proved that they have scammed their partner then they stay as they have technically done nothing illegal and on paper the marriage just didn’t work out. It sucks but part of the K1 process is that the person is sponsored so that they can have medical expenses etc covered for 10 years and they’ve signed and agreed to that so the US has no reason to deport.


Zemykitty

They are not guaranteed 'medical expenses' for 10 years. The sponsor owes them nothing outside of what's found in their divorce for any period. The sponsor will only be required to pay back the government if they then go on benefits which isn't something USCIS cares about chasing down to such a high degree.


BrotherJosephine

The new law i believe states that you need to sponsor the person you marry and bring to the US for life and not just 10 years, just saw it in a happily ever after latest season episode, where kalani was thinking about divorcing asuelu and she went with her father to see a lawyer.


Zemykitty

The immigrant or the gov agency providing benefits would have to sue the sponsor for any gov services the immigrant requested in order to get them to pay. The sponsor doesn't just hand over money for 10 years or the rest of their life for food, rent, expenses.


Bants90

I saw that, but Biden has already changed it back to 10 years. Trump just didn’t want us immigrants to be on welfare


BrotherJosephine

To be honest I don't think any immigrant who divorced their American partner will actually come back and ask to be sponsored, most of them just run away change state and start a new life. At least that's what the 90 day cast seems to be doing.


Bants90

They can’t run away. Once they have a green card they have a SSN. They will always be in the US system unless they move back to their home nation. They technically haven’t done anything wrong so why would they be deported?


DirectFXX

Larissa had an arrest record and no green card so how was she able to stay ?


Motherof42069

She had a good case for domestic violence and abuse.


QueenHelloKitty

As the abuser


Am_0116

They ended up married and the system is so deport that they deport hard working people with a 10 year old unpaid parking ticket but not those assholes


Isosceles_Kramer79

Our immigration system is broken.


DirectFXX

Some shady shit . Love to know how Larissa did stay with arrest record and no green card being on a tv show to boot ?


petiteaustralienne

Hasn't she said a few times that she isn't completely in the clear as a resident? I imagine Covid has slowed a lot of things down including immigration


binzyz

Loopholes


Icy-Following-3713

larissa absolutely should be because of her arrests
