That is actually a good one... these kinds of people, like the man who took advantage of you and the system, need to be exposed to make clear that they cannot get away with this stuff anymore in this day and age.

Thanks for the advice. I have already been in touch with police and reported the violence so it's on record. I should have added more detail about how I informed the Immigration Dept of what I went through and I contacted my local MP to follow up my complaint after I sent a 7 page letter outlining all that I knew about lies being told in order to get perm. residency. The MP was told that he is now being investigated. There was a lot more to my story here that couldn't be added but my husband isn't a very nice person and is known to do anything to get what he wants by lying to authorities and comitting crime . However, I was wondering about what my chances were in regards to taking him to court for 'maintenance' even though I don't have children with him, but I have suffered financially and was at risk of being on the street if it wasn't for my family. I still live in a room and I have been affected mentally and emotionally. I can't explain the tremendous pain I have had to endure, being used for the purpose of staying in Australia is the ultimate betrayal. That means every time he told me he loved me he was lying. Or on the other hand should I just forget about seeking legal action on the grounds of marriage fraud law and just move on. But then it means he has been able to get away with it??? I am plagued by what this man has done.

I cannot believe that some people would admit to going into a fake marriage on a forum where they see people fighting to be with loved ones, what sick people are amongst us, do you realize your on a forum where people are comforting each other with information and support because they cannot be with loved ones, and you pop up with IM IN A FAKE MARRIAGE, WTF i hope your thrown in prison for your false declaration to the IMMI department, do you seriously think people on this forum find your post amusing. Its people like you that make me spu i really wish you were in front of my face right now, i,d sure as hell slap you stupid, or maybe when your locked up in prison you can become some ones BITCH.... wishful thinking on my part.

I am very sorry Louiseb. I'm sure if your comment was directed at the one who originally posted the marriage fraud post? or me? When I was in search of answers in my situation re: 'marriage fraud' popped up from this website. I did not know it was a site to support ppl like yourself. However, forums are really used for all types of discussion. My intentions of marriage to my husband was based on love for him.

Im sure its not directed at you kima...you are the victim of this stuff, the OP is the crap that makes it so hard for those that believe rightly or wrongly they are in a genuine relationship and have to go thru nerve racking experience...so hang in there and pursue whatever you need to do to get justice...

I understand your pain and I can only advise you what I would like to see happen, from your position and from mine, which is don't forget about any way to punish him even if the odds are against you. Yes he's already been granted permanent residence but you need to send the message that when this kind of stuff happens, good people don't agree you are too good to let this slide, and he does not deserve to be in this country. Abuse victims cannot be held accountable for keeping quiet initially, just because it could have changed his visa at the time doesn't mean you should have been different from any other abuse victim. Try to find a way around it. It is people like you who can give this visa its credibility back by making clear that nobody stands for the abuse of immigration, especially not if it is to abuse Australian citizens. Maybe also talk to your former case officer at immigration to see what they know about your options. They might have had hesitations too and be able to back you up?

Thank you all so much. All good advice. It makes me feel less alone in the world where good, honest people are hard to find. Good-luck to all who have found a wonderful partner in life and who are waiting to be reunited with loved ones. And bless those like me who have had the courage to speak up and also hope to find the strength to carry on after a devastating experience of finding what I thought was love but then realised it was only I who was capable of unconditional love, not with dishonest intentions but with an open heart. Happy new year.

Kimalboudi,I´m so glad you found a way to get out of the relationship and this is a the beginning of your new much,much happier life!
Never let anyone control you like that again! You deserve so much better!!

You received 2 great advices a couple of posts up here,in my opinion:
1. Contact A Current Affair.
I´m sure they would love to hear your story and so will many viewers.
People don´t like seeing men OR women being used to get into the country.
You can probably be anonymous in the feature if you don´t want your name or face shown on tv.

2. Contact your/your husbands Case officer.
I´m not sure what they can do but your husband used both you and the system and I´m sure they´ll do what they can with the info you can provide them with. You married him out of love and shouldn´t be risking anything.
And I must say,thank God you didn´t have children with him.That would have complicated things so much.

Things happen for a reason and you´ll get stronger by this,I promise.
Happy New Year and all the best to you!

I hope you get three years in prison You can't have been that stupid to think is was ever OK to enter into a fake marriage. I have to agree with others on this forum, it is people like you who ruin the lives of real couples who are denied entry into Australia and make the rest of us wait up to years to be together. There is no excuse.

Australian Department of Immigration and Multicultural Affairs Annual Report 1998-99

During the year, DIMA's Investigations Unit referred 88 briefs of evidence about immigration fraud to the Director of Public Prosecution – 52 people were convicted for offences against the Migration Act 1958 and other Commonwealth legislation.

Penalties resulting from the convictions generally consisted of good behaviour and community service, but there were also heavier penalties, including custodial sentences of up to three years and fines ranging up to $7000.
