Question
Greetings.
I have a sister in law that came over on a fiance visa, but right before she got here her fiance married another woman.
She came over anyway and her sister here in the US filled a petition for alien relative and she received a notice of action. She overstayed here visa and has got married to another man. Should she go to a lawyer or just to the immigration. i have heard so many different things but really don't know what to tell here.

Answer
She is not eligible to get her green card here. People who come here on fiancee visa can only get papers here through the person that brought them here. If she goes backa dn has been here more than 6 months illegally she will be subject to a 3 or 10 year bar which she will need a waiver for.

Regards,

Robert
