Feds clamp down on immigrant abuse

Be aware that the US government has declared that any petitioner with ?any criminal convictions? who desires to bring in an alien fiancé(e) or alien spouse (using a K1 or K3 form) must on Form I-129F also give complete details on any crimes listed below.

Government treats this matter seriously for the ?Protection of Battered and Trafficked Immigrants.? It originally issued this decree under the US Department of Homeland Security. Then, the US Citizenship and Immigration Services department issued it to all employees to make them aware of law?s details.

Petitioners must give details if ruled guilty of any of these crimes:

  • Domestic violence, dating violence, child abuse and neglect, or elder abuse, sexual assault or stalking.
  • Homicide, murder, manslaughter, torture; holding hostage, kidnapping, abduction, unlawful criminal restraint, false imprisonment; rape, abusive sexual contact, sexual exploitation, incest, slave trade; trafficking, peonage, involuntary servitude; or an attempt to commit any of these crimes named here.
  • Crimes relating to a controlled substance or alcohol where the petitioner has been convicted on at least three occasions and where such crimes did not arise from a single act.

If the petitioner has been declared ?guilty? by a court or military tribunal of any of the above crimes, he or she must submit verified court and police records detailing the charges and dispositions of every infraction that occurred, even if the records are sealed or cleared.

Certain waivers are possible, and the petitioner may request them. Full details on this and all other points related to this law can be found on the following website, and should be taken seriously: http://www.uscis.gov
