I’ve made a lot of money in the stock market – but I’ve lost some too. I have 20+ years investing and trading and I learn something new every day. What I have learned is that long term consistent returns are not easy, if they were, everyone would be rich. Likewise, finding a foreign woman isn’t easy, if it was, every Joe in the West would have a Svetlana or Ekaterina on his arm. There are a LOT of pitfalls to finding a woman overseas – keeping your wits about you, just as in the stock market, is key to success.
My last trip to Ukraine did not end in romantic success but was not a total loss: I learned a lot about overseas travel, American mindsets, Eastern European dating and a learned quite a bit about myself.
Of all of the things that have become even more clear to me, the one thing that stands out the most is that I don’t want to end up with a Western woman. I just can’t stand the feminist mindset – I find it illogical in every way, angry (in that most feminists deeply despise men) and I don’t want to be the breadwinner to some fat whining bitch. Life is too short to f* it up, I’ve re-resolved to keep up the search & to avoid the pitfalls of Western women. More on this later.
In the meantime, I found this string yesterday on a forum website. If you are considering bringing an Eastern woman back to Western Europe, America, Australia or Canada, have a look at this:
“You still have to provide for your foreign spouse even after a divorce. Much like a prenuptial agreement, you will need to pay a specified amount on a scheduled basis. The amount you are required to pay will depend on the employment and financial situation of your foreign ex-spouse.
There are, however, certain grounds for termination of the affidavit of support. Those include: · The immigrant has worked 40 qualifying quarters (approximately 10 years), according to the standards put in place by the Social Security Act · The immigrant “naturalizes.” This is the process by which the immigrant can gain full U.S. citizenship by proving continuous U.S. residency, thorough English and Civics knowledge, as well as an attachment to the Constitution. A test is administered for immigrant naturalization. · The immigrant dies or is not longer a U.S. resident. If none of these grounds for termination are found, the affidavit of support will stand, requiring the sponsor to continue with financial support. This requirement will stand until one of the grounds for termination is met. If support is not provided by the sponsor on time and in full, the immigrant has the right to sue.
Furthermore, if an immigrant receives any kind of “means-tested public benefits” from an agency (including, but not limited to, Social Security Income, Food Stamps, or Medicaid), the sponsor must pay that agency for the costs of the benefits. Essentially, the sponsor should have been paying for these benefits all along, so they receive the responsibility for payment.
In other words, if you “import” a wife, and she dumps you, you’re on the hook to pay her bills while she runs off with the pool boy.
She loves you and its “safe” to bring her to the US? I did a Google search and found dozens of sites that give your new bride all sorts of “advice” on how to dump you, continue the green card process and to “gurantee” her application by charging that you abused her:
I’m married to a U.S. citizen who mistreats me both physically and emotionally. He started the process of applying for my green card, but the application is still pending. I’m afraid he’ll refuse to continue with the green card process if I call the police or leave him. More than that, I’m afraid he’ll take the kids and let the immigration authorities deport me. What do I do?
This must feel like quite a trap — stay with your husband and be abused, or leave him and be deported and separated from your children. Luckily, the folks in Congress have provided an escape from this trap.
The Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) allows battered women (or men) who are married to U.S. citizens and permanent residents to use a special “self-petition” to apply for their green card.
That means you won’t have to depend on your abusive husband for anything — not the initial petition, not the signatures, not the promises of financial support, and not even his showing up at the interview. And, you can make use of this law and convert your application to a “self-petition” at any point in the process.
You’ll want to get help with this. The self-petition involves not only filling out a form, but attaching documents proving a number of things. The most important of these have to do with your husband’s citizenship status (though if he already sent in the initial “I-130” petition, this has been taken care of); your bona fide marriage; and the abuse you suffered. For information and referrals, call the National Domestic Violence Hotline, available 24 hours a day, at 1-800-799-SAFE. They also have a website, at www.ndvh.org.
But just in case you have to flee your home in a hurry, think now about any personal documents or evidence you could take with you for your self-petition. Better yet, collect things now and leave them with a friend. For example, your passport and any immigration documents; photos of you with your husband, or of you with bruises and other signs of abuse; your journal, calendar, or other record of how your husband mistreated you and when; even threatening notes or answering machine tapes by your husband will all be very useful later. Ultimately you’ll have to gather additional evidence, such as police reports and hospital records. Good luck.
Just having a “girlfriend” in the US seems like a better and better option the more I look at this subject.
