Port Hueneme, CA asked in Immigration Law for California

Q: What are my options?

Hello, I would like to find out what my options are? 4 years ago my visa expired. I was able to marry an american so I didn’t have to leave. We started to apply to adjust my status. However, I got busy with partying and having fun that I dropped the ball and never followed through with the process. Fast forward to now. My wife found out I been living a double life and that I married her only to stay in the country. She found my secret social media and now she is filling for divorce. During all this our immigration lawyer dropped us. What are my options? Can i still adjust my status while going through a divorce? I have copies of my wife’s documentation, can i just submit her paperwork? Can I get married to someone else immediately and try again? Can I be deported? I am having issues filling taxes because of my status as well

A: You have admitted to attempted marriage fraud in order to get your green card. Not smart at all on a public forum that anyone can read. Consult in private with an experienced immigration attorney and take this question down ASAP.
