He supposedly overstayed his Visa when he came to the US with his first wife and son. I don't think that has ever been said on the show, though. But last night Ari discussed something with her parents about having applied for the K1 Visa for him but the pandemic derailed that plan. Does that mean there was never "The Other Way" plan and that the idea all along was to bring him to the US? That change of plans seems pretty common on TOW, people move to a foreign country instead of bringing their fiancé to the US, but then all of a sudden they are applying for a spousal or fiancé Visa.
