^Yup, I wish them the best too....if it works for them. That's good, but the bad thing will be those people who have honest relationship. The process will be more tighter. :-\
No matter how clever or sophisticated a man may appear, he is merely clay waiting to be shaped by the hand of a superior woman.  It is, however, best not to let him know this.

^That's a good idea. Although, all my girl friends here are either have a bf or married already. Both of them are in different states, if one of them came in my state it's just to pass by. They just called me up for time to time for catch up. But I'll do that next time someone ask me, maybe one of my friends knows any single friend. :)

Ako, IMO lang ha, I wont even introduce people to others who are also searching..Unconsciously siguro pwede but yung may purpose malamang hindi. Why? Kasi minsan  may ugali tayong mga Pilipino that if something goes wrong ikaw ang binabalikan kahit wala ka namang kinalaman dun..hay!

I suggest that this thread be closed/archived. it is not in line with GT's purpose of sharing relevant information - rather it may even contribute or encourage someone to do the act. I noticed that some of us may have inadvertently  divulged some information that encourages others  to go about doing the CRIME.

Lalo na ngayon we have to be really careful as the US govt is cracking down on illegal immigration. A hot topic that we do not want to mess up with by documenting that Filipinos are somewhat guilty.

Mods, Please delete this thread. Thank you.

my cousin and i went to the customs and border protection office here in atlanta a week ago. it's because mali yung naistamp sa passport nya when she got back from her cruise. nways, while waiting for the officer to call her name, 2 other officers were discussing about this indonesian lady who married an indo-american while still married to another man. syempre kasi gusto nya makapunta dito sa us. they've been married for 3 years na ata. bigamy, fake marriage and stuff. basta andami nyang cases. and talagang desidido ang mga officers na matimbog sya and send her back to indonesia.

just sharing.

Speaking of the topic, I finally met someone who came to the U.S. via a fake fiance set-up. They got married, lived together for a while, and divorced after 3 years. Now they are both happily married (not to each other) and have kids. They're also STILL friends. It's not personal daw, it's business. <Jaw dropped>.

When you get married in the US to a US citizen...
     After the marriage is filed.. the US Citizen spouse files so that the non-US citizen spouse gets a work visa and gets legitimacy to stay plus another document so that the petitioned spouse can travel in and out of the US (should circumstances for work or personal emergencies warrant such)

     Thereafter, BEFORE 2 years have elapsed -- the US citizen spouse files a set of 3 documents.. so the spouses are interviewed separately BEFORE the 2 years are up... and if Immigration is convinced it is a real marriage -- 
the petitioned spouse gets a TEMPORARY GREEN CARD  (actually it is pink colored hehe)  which is good for 5 years

     After 5 years,  the petitioned spouse gets a PERMANENT GREEN CARD
   
A potential problem is IF the petitioning spouse DOES NOT file the 3 documents within 2 years... there lies the danger... the spouse supposed to be petitioned can be deported...

If anybody here is interested in more details on the above.. I will dig my files and be more precise with the documents required.  PM me, i may forget to get back to this thread.

If anyone here intends to fake it ... please don't.
There are other ways of getting a green card... 1 is to be employed by companies that employ a lot of foreigners.. sanay sila to get work visas, and then after a couple of years with them..they work for your temporary green card.

My mom's friend offered to pay my brother 5k for fake marriage way back in 2000. Ayaw ng brother ko kase mas macho pa sa kanya yung anak ng friend ng mom ko.

I would never agree to this had I been single and kahit bayaran pa ko ng malaki. There's just so much risk.
Whatever I want, I get. If I can't, I don't stop TRYING.

mahirap yung ganitong setup. sa case ng cousin ko, yung mom nya nagpakasal sa us citizen, hindi naman fake or fixed. so nakasama silang minor children dito. kaso inabandon sila ng mom nila, sumama sa dating boyfriend. hindi pa sila nakakuha ng green card. naiwan silang magkapatid dito.

nilaban nya yung case nya kasi nagbabayad naman sya ng taxes, legal naman silang nakarating dito sa u.s., etc. ang lumabas sa investigation, fake yung marriage ng mom at stepdad nya. ayun, yung ate nya nagpakasal na lang sa boyfriend para maging legal. eh sya, gay so wala syang magagawa. just the other day, he received a letter of deportation.

^ Yoiu do not need to be a US citizen to own nor inherit properties in the US.
Actually, yun magiging reason mo nga to  get a visa later on .  Teka, may US tourist visa ka na ba?

Marry?  haynako, this is for those na dead na dead na dead talaga manirahan sa US.  Think it over well.  IF you do not have the skills to get a good job there, kelangan mag aral ka uli doon.  Otherwise, you will just be working for your expenses and rent.

i know this does exist, i know some din reto reto, reto reto is fine with me pero yung faking a marriage, i have my morals padin. personally i have a US citizen boyfriend and if everything goes well, eventually we'll tie the knot, ngayon palang sinabi ko na nga sa kanya i'm getting as much experiences i can get here coz when i plan to work overseas anyway (not US ha) before we met, then things changed, now i'm thinking of how to get a nice job there, i mean i am even planning on taking US boards if given the chance. what i'm pointing here is tama mga sis natin dito, you can go there fairly easy but to live there lalo na ngayon na retro, kind of hard. boyfriend even tells me its hard to find a minimum paying job there nowadays. another thing, since me and boyfriend have plans, i've heard they are very strict right now, in short pati mga tunay na nag aapply for fiance visa which we plan to kasi mag mabilis for me to get there nahihirapan din. its very hard to be apart with the one you love, and it kind of sucks that just because some do that other legit applications are also affected. i'm not here to judge anybody but would it be better if you do something that you wouldn't end up being a burden to other people. just saying.

At the end of it all, you'll end up with either you fall in love with the person you'll marry (unless he's gay) kasi imagine you have to live with them for 3 years. Or you'll end up not having a greencard kasi ng divorce na kayo.It's not worth anyone's morals and values to get married just to get citizenship kesho pa nagugutom ka  dito sa pinas.
