    Your friend is foolish and bought this on herself, none can force you into an illegal marriage she should have gone to the police or told the registrar in confidence. If this man has had his visa revoked he is unlawfully in Ieland and can be picked up, arrested and removed at any time.
    All she has to do is go and see a divorce lawyer, simple.
  • she is afraid she will go to prison and loose her kids though

    She simply has to seek a divorce, she does not need to tell everyone it was a fake mariage it all backfired any way because he does not have a visa.

    She can portray herself as really believing that this man loved her and now he has left her because he has no visa so she wants a divorce., she realises he tried to use her. If she sticks to that story your friend will be ok, she is not the first person to be duped into marriage.

    Why was his visa refused.?
