Mohamed Abdelhamed ‘Deported’ Amid Yve Split: ‘He Will Have Zero Credibility’
Mohamed Abdelhamed, star of 90 Day Fiancé, "deported" following his divorce from estranged wife Yvette "Yve" Arellano, her lawyer exclusively tells In Touch.
"In a fraud case, USCIS will go after him rather than suing him personally. What will most likely happen is that he will be denied," her lawyer, Kathleen Martinez, tells In Touch of Abdelhamed's future immigration status.
"And it will be extremely difficult for him to obtain another marriage-based green card. He will have virtually no credibility. And may even face deportation. It may take a few years, but fighting immigration fraud once USCIS is aware of it is nearly impossible."
The attorney for the New Mexico native also mentions the possibility of being "blacklisted" from future entry into the United States.
Arellano and her team previously accused her estranged husband of "committing immigration fraud," according to Dominique Enchinton of Dominton Talent House, who spoke exclusively to In Touch on Tuesday, August 23. On August 22, In Touch exclusively revealed that the former TLC couple had divorced after less than a year of marriage.
"It's up to the government if they want to go to court," Martinez adds. "However, if they suspect him of fraud, they have full authority to place him in removal proceedings and deport him."
Martinez's claims were not immediately addressed by Abdelhamed, who did not respond to In Touch's request for comment.
On August 15, the mother of one was charged with one count of battery against a household member and one count of assault against a household member after Abdelhamed claimed in a police report that his ex assaulted him for his phone.
"Mohamed lied about the domestic abuse allegations. "From the beginning, Mohamed and the woman he has been cheating on Yve with have discussed his options," Enchinton told In Touch the next day. "They specifically discussed a U visa and how Mohamed could qualify for one in case Yve discovered his transgressions."
According to the US Citizenship and Immigration Services, a U visa "is reserved for victims of certain crimes who have suffered mental or physical abuse and are helpful to law enforcement or government officials in the investigation or prosecution of criminal activity."
Arellano's domestic violence charges were announced just one day after part 2 of the explosive season 9 tell-all, in which the Egypt native admitted to having an inappropriate online relationship with a woman.
In his solo confessional, he recalled meeting a girl online. "She was very nice, and I assumed we were friends... Then things began to get bigger. Yve noticed my phone. "Yve knew because she saw the text messages."
During Abdelhamed's scene, TLC showed the text messages, one of which appeared to be a message from him to another woman that read, "I would just keep you in bed for days," followed by a second text that read, "Just kidding lol [sic]," presumably from the 90 Day Fiancé alum. "I will go to the attorney right after I get the green card," Abdelhamed wrote in another message that appeared to be his.
