I have been in Peru for two days, I am currently volunteering at a hostel in miraflores in exchange for room and board. There is small issue however. I was informed by the hotel staff that the owner´s cousin wants her daughter to marry an American, which in this case is me. Apparently, I could make a lot of money out of the whole deal, my only question is, to what extent would I have to provide for the woman I marry once I marry her? I know that this sounds crazy, but if I were able to marry a peruvian woman, and she were able to obtain citizenship, and I were to recieve a lot of cash and not have any further resposibility, I would love to. Thanks for any advice or input!

inscop wrote:Can you say "marriage fraud?" That is what happens when you, an American named W. Zach Morris announces in a public forum his intent to make money by marrying a Peruvian woman. It is an especially poor decision when you do it where a retired (but still activily engaged) immigration Special Agent (me) hangs out.

I don't want you to consider this a threat, but PLEASE don't do anything stupid that might cause someone's patriotism (not necessarily mine) to kick in. I would think from the roundly disapproving posts above that you have already determined this is not a good idea. You would still have to go through the whole divorce process in the US and guess what??? This woman has already proved she can not be trusted. She could take you to the cleaners.
