Hi, and thanks for stopping by.
The reason for this Go Fund Me, is to help with flight and accommodation cost due to the USA’s government's decision that after four years of marriage they don’t believe it's bona fide! So they want to deport me, and tear us apart!
So they plan to deport me, reasons being, there are two dates relating to our marriage. This was explained at our initial green card interview, but obviously notes were not taken.
The first date, July 16th, appears on our ceremony pictures, we had a celebration due to the fact that Alexis’s dad was in the ICU in a coma after suffering heart failure. He was also awaiting a Kidney transplant. His last words to us were that he wanted to see us married, and so we went ahead with the celebration, basically all the trappings of a wedding without actually getting legally married, as I was still awaiting my fiancé visa to come through, and we wanted to make sure we did everything legally, and by the book. He was related all the details by Debbie, Alexis's mom, who was at his bedside on a FaceTime call, so he could hear all that happened.
The day after the wedding he passed away.
I came back to Scotland after this to await my visa, which arrived and I came in September, and we were married legally on October 19th. Apparently that’s a reason for deportation.
We were together for less than two years before we were married, that means the immigration department puts conditions on my green card that I have to apply to have removed, we totally understand this, So we submitted all they asked for, and they don’t believe us.
So during this already horrible year for so many people we have to work though this too! I will, when they tell me, be moving back to my parents in Scotland, but I have to quarantine for two weeks first, which means staying in a hotel.
This and my flight home are the reason for the go fund me.
Now, there is a chance that they won’t, I have been waiting 6 weeks for a call to tell me what to do to appeal, if I can. If by some miracle I’m not deported we will donate all the money raised to the American Kidney Fund in memory of Alexis’s dad.
We will then have to live apart until we save enough for me to be able to bring Alexis to Scotland, with our two fur babies. Where we can finally settle down and start our family.
Thank you for reading and any support you can bring. Included are shots of the letter we received.
Also the email regarding the call from them.
