90 Day Fiance alleged husband-abuser Larissa Dos Santos Lima faces another day in court this week related to injuries done to Colt Johnson. Debbie Johnson, Colt’s mother, said on Instagram that Larissa faces deportation after the hearing. Meanwhile, Larissa is planning her new life in America with her boyfriend Eric Nichols. Here is the latest on the Brazilian import’s legal battle against criminal charges for domestic violence and whether she’ll be deported.
90 Day Fiance: Larissa Dos Santos Lima Has Court Negotiation – Trial Evaded?
On recent episodes of 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After, Larissa was upset over her court hearing on her initial arrest. The question is whether TLC cameras captured her two other arrests for the same charge. The court hearing was set for early June. But a new event cropped up on her legal timeline. She’s set for “negotiations” on May 30 for her third arrest. Las Vegas Justice Court dismissed her first criminal case and denied the second criminal case. Now, she faces prosecution on the third domestic violence arrest – and it’s with the same judge.
This judge knows about the other arrests, so it will be interesting to see if her lawyer (who calls himself “The DUI Doctor”) can talk Larissa Dos Santos Lima out of trouble again. Colt Johnson skipped court so that he couldn’t be questioned in the first case – so that helped. And he refused to cooperate with the police and court in the first two criminal cases. This time, 90 Day Fiance star Colt Johnson will be in court and can be questioned by the prosecutor in the case.
You can view the comments and statements that now seem to be since deleted from Debbie’s social timeline.
Colt Johnson Pressing Charges This Time – Debbie Johnson Stands By Son
As seen on 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After, Colt Johnson went to work instead of court. Soap Dirt sent a reporter to one of the criminal hearings and we chatted with Debbie Johnson at the time. She said Colt missed a lot of time from work and would only show up when needed. He did not attend the criminal arraignment for Larissa Dos Santos Lima’s third arrest but mama Debbie Johnson did. Larissa didn’t show either – just her lawyer.
Then, at the last hearing both Colt Johnson and Debbie Johnson were there – and so was our reporter. Once again the 90 Day Fiance star, Larissa Dos Santos Lima, didn’t show and her lawyers asked for a continuance and got it. Now, this week, she’s due back in court again. Lots of fans asked Debbie Johnson what would happen this weekend in comments on a pic of Colt Johnson she posted. Debbie caught up fans with where Larissa’s visa stands and what is next.

Debbie Says Larissa Dos Santos Lima Has No Green Card – No Happily Ever After for 90 Day Fiance?
On her Instagram, a 90 Day Fiance fan asked Debbie “Is Colt still responsible for her for 10 years?” Mama Deb said, “Absolutely not. They have no legal ties what so ever. She’s on her own”. Then someone else mentioned that the K-1 visa comes along with a 10 year commitment and asked “how did he get out of that?”
Colt Johnson’s mother explained: “The process was never completed”. Colt didn’t file the green card papers, according to his mom. It ended too soon. It became null and void”. Then another commented clapped back that “he’s still on the hook” because he married her. Colt’s mom advised that person: “Get your facts to this case straight”. Already on 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After, Colt Johnson said he wouldn’t file her paperwork to get her visa.
Can Larissa Stay in the US After Divorce and Criminal Charges?
A quick refresher on the 90 Day Fiance process is that you apply for the K-1 visa and show the sponsor can support the immigrant spouse financially. The fiance or fiancee comes to America and they have three months to marry. Once married, the sponsor spouse files for an adjustment of status to get the permanent visa. We saw this recently with David Toborowsky and Annie Suwan, but that’s because he followed through to get her papers.
Another Happily Ever After spouse refusing to file the visa paperwork is Ashley Martson who says she won’t do this for Jay Smith. The spouse refusing to cooperate changes things. The marriage won’t keep the 90 Day Fiance in the country even after they’re hitched – without special circumstances. But it doesn’t always work out that way. Look at Mohammad Jbali and Fernanda Flores, both still in America…

90 Day Fiance: Debbie Johnson Says No Green Card and Larissa Will Be Deported – Wait and See
Back to the Johnson family drama… Colt Johnson’s mother Debbie Johnson was asked “Does she already have her green card? Can’t it be cancelled?” She replied that Larissa “doesn’t have her Green Card and she won’t be getting it”. Debbie answered then deleted another question from her Insta timeline, but you can see them above. This is about Larissa’s deportation issue.
Someone asked Debbie “Shouldn’t she be sent back to Brazil? Just wondering”. Then the 90 Day Fiance: Happily Ever After mom of Colt Johnson said this. “Everything takes time”. Then she said: “There is still a Domestic Violence hearing next week”. The court scheduled a hearing for the morning of May 30 for “negotiations”. Then, Debbie said: “after that she will be deported. It just takes time”.
What Criminal Charge Does Larissa Face?
Las Vegas Police arrested former 90 Day Fiance Larissa in January. The Las Vegas Justice court charged her with misdemeanor Domestic Battery in the first degree under Nevada Statute 200.485.1a. The maximum punishment for a conviction for a first offense is county jail for at least two days but up to six months. In addition, there is a minimum of 48 hours of community service but up to 120 hours. Plus there’s a fine of $200-1,000.
A criminal conviction could trigger Larissa’s deportation. Also, if Colt Johnson notified United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) that he’s withdrawing his support of her immigration, that should already set the wheels in motion for deportation. In the case of Mohamed and Danielle Jbali, he might have talked her into not filing against him.
As for 90 Day Fiance cast member Fernanda Flores, her father is a permanent resident of the US and she has tons of family in Chicago, Illinois, so someone else may be able to take over sponsoring her green card process. Larissa Dos Santos Lima was already soliciting a replacement sponsor on Instagram months ago. If she found an employer or someone else to sponsor or marries her new boyfriend, she may avoid deportation. Wait and see.
