Hello. Well the thing is strange. The american guy married polish woman but of some time they break up but havent divorced so she can get us citizenship, on their ending she got pregnant and got a baby. now there is 3 years of their marriage and they wants a devorce, but what if he wants to live in eu now. should they pretend that they are still married and dont devorce or they can devorce. if they shouldnt devorce, for how long would it take for him to get an eu. thank you very much.

It depends on if they want to be deceitful....

for how long would it take for him to get an eu.

If he is not married to her the answer is as long as a visa takes and depending on where in the EU he goes will depend on whether he gets a visa for work...The UK now has an Aus style points system, so it's not as easy to get in.

He should find out, through the embassy, if he is entitled to work and a long term stay in the EU. Either as a divorced or married man.

He won't gain much with EU documents. His problem is finding work or showing that he can support himself.
Once he has work and is paying tax, in other words... legal, then he should be able to get a long term visa or equivalent.

Will she be coming back to Europe with him or not ?

She should phone the embassy as a married woman.

He should phone as a divorced man.

Then compare notes.

she will get back to poland. so what if he would try to get the polish citizenship while they are not divorced yet? how long would it take to get it?

I think this is measured in years. There are details about this on the forum somewhere. He/she should be able to find info on a Polish government website.

Did she get her US citizenship? If so, why would she want to go back to EU?

Maybe to return the favour and/or visit family.

I suppose, then why did she go through all the trouble to stay married to this guy just to get a green card and go back. The green card is valid for only two years untill she gets a permanent resident card and she doesn't file income taxes and show proof that she lives in the US it will be nullified.

Just wondering why.

yes, Wroclaw, its for both.

Then he should stay married for the time being. It will be easier for him. Then when he has been here for a while he can sort out what he really wants.

He will have to stay somewhere when he gets here. That's another problem, because in the real world he would be staying with his wife. And he will need her to help with documents.

And I think once they've been married for 3 years she can apply for actual citizenship and she won't need the sponsor anymore. But I think she has to prove that they have lived together for those 3 years.

Bitter_Cat, it sounds like there is more to the story. If her husband has been abusive toward her and if that's why she left him, she can get citizenship if she can prove it, such as through police reports.

he is not abusive. its not like that. its just a story as i told, there isnt more, they just broke up and lived in different places but pretended that they were together so she can get that stuff. thats all.

in that case, just be careful with trying to help her with this because you might get in trouble, too, for helping someone committ marriage fraud (by getting advice for her in a public place).
