That is what I believe but I may be wrong. I am a big proponent of waivers but I don't know that it is going to work in this case. When a nonimmigrant resorts to fake identification in order receive an immigration benefit, all bets are usually off. What I do know is that there is waiver that is specifically available when the spouse, child or parent of USC, in other words an "immediate relative" of a USC has misrepresented themselves to gain entry in the US. This however is only your girlfriend. If she were married to you, then I would look into filing a waiver. Good luck!

You need to bring her case and all documentation/notations from her passport and any documentation given to her to a competent immigration attorney. That person will be able to fully analyze what exactly happened with your fiancee, if an actual fraud charge was made and then what options are available.

A better approach may require for you to go get married in her home country. Then, apply for consular processing with a waiver for misrepresentation.

Her credibility is questionable now. You being citizen does not present her any privilege over laws. The last thing a person can do is to defraud the system. She needs a lawyer to try hard for her.
