’90 Day Fiancé’: Larissa Dos Santos Lima Getting Deported? Expert Claims She ‘No Longer Has a Legal Basis’ for a Green Card
90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After? star Larissa Dos Santos might be facing deportation. The reality star expressed concerns about being deported after her former husband, Colt, withdrew his affidavit of support. With Larissa having no legal basis for obtaining a green card, an immigration expert says that she could be deported and forced to return to Brazil.
Larissa opens up about her immigration status on ’90 Day Fiancé’
In season 5 of 90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?, Larissa’s story started with her finishing some community service following her third charge of domestic violence. The incident happened back in January of 2019 and Colt called it quits on their marriage a few days later.
The pair finalized their divorce in May 2019. Larissa originally moved from Brazil on a K-1 visa. But after her divorce, Colt withdrew his affidavit of support, a move that left Larissa worried about her future in the United States.
At the beginning of season 5, Larissa talked with her girlfriends about her situation and admitted that Colt had “canceled her green card.” She then revealed that she wants to remain in the US so that she can “follow [her] American dream.”
Unfortunately, the only way the 90 Day Fiancé star can remain in the US is if she finds someone who is willing to sign another affidavit of support. She was dating another man named Eric, but that relationship has also fizzled out.
Larissa called Eric a “cheap man” and said that he did not offer her enough compliments when they were together.
What’s ahead for Larissa on ’90 Day Fiancé: Happily Ever After?’
Apart from her romantic life, 90 Day Fiancé fans were quick to notice that Larissa looked completely different in the season premiere. Not only had she lost a considerable amount of weight, but she also got some plastic surgery done.
Larissa had a plastic surgeon work on her chin, lips, cheekbones, and nose. She also revealed that she made her butt bigger.
Although she spent a lot of money going under the knife, Larissa had to beg her father to send her money from Brazil. After her dad agreed to send her some funds, the 90 Day Fiancé star admitted that she misses her son and daughter, whom she had from previous relationships.
In a teaser for a future episode, Larissa tries to get back together with Eric. But they experience some more hurdles as he kicks her out of his home in the clip.
Larissa is later shown going under the knife yet again and has some difficulties waking up after the surgery.
Will Larissa be deported?
The big reason Larissa might get deported is because Colt withdrew his affidavit of support. The document was originally part of the couple’s K-1 visa application and is a promise that Colt will support her financially.
Some former 90 Day Fiancé cast members have kept the affidavit of support even after getting divorced. But it sounds like Colt decided to cut all ties with Larissa and withdrew the document — and that’s not the only thing going against Larissa.
According to Soap Dirt, an expert on immigration law revealed that Larissa will have a difficult time applying for a green card because of her history with the law. Larissa was found guilty of domestic violence, though the charges were modified to disorderly conduct after she completed community service.
Even still, the expert, who is a US visa officer, says that her criminal record will make it very difficult to get a green card.
While Larissa is set for deportation, she was granted a work permit. This allows her to earn a living while she waits for a USCIS hearing, which could take years at this point. The only chance Larissa has in staying in the US is if she marries someone and they sign another affidavit of support.
