Oak Creek, WI asked in Immigration Law for Wisconsin

Q: I feel in love with him but orginally a "sham marriage"

I was friends with a pakistani guy and he asked me to marry his brother.. me not having a family was promised a family by him and his family. Saying they would always be there for me and love me. My friend also said he would give me money for marrying his brother and getting his green card. Well long story short i feel in love pretty quick. I got pregnant a few months later after we got married and was told by both of them to get an abortion that we arent ready for a kid. I had my daughter though.me and him fight all the time now. Sometimes getting a little physical (ive scratched him with a marker once) i have seen missed phone calls from his ex wife in pakistan on his phone who I'm pretty sure he is still married to and the papers are fake. Anyways i have on recording the brother(my now ex friend) telling me i was supposed to be doing him a favor and he offered me money and evrything so i have proof sham marriage. I never took any money. If i turn them in will i get in trouble?

A: If the Judge finds out you knew this was a sham marriage before you married that guy, yes you might get into trouble. You should really consider talking to an attorney about this and dont share the details like this in public, because anything you say can and will be used against you. All the best.
