90 Day Fiance’s Larissa Christina is in trouble again after another incident with Colt Johnson. Her many controversies include a third arrest for domestic violence. But that’s only the beginning. Another burning question on fans’ minds is how these legal woes may impact her ability to stay in the United States. Will she be deported or get to stick around?
90 Day Fiance: Larissa Christina’s Legal Woes
Colt Johnson recently said on Instagram that he would press charges against his 90 Day Fiance turned wife. In addition, Colt also filed for divorce. In turn, she took to her social media accounts to update fans on her status and her legal situation.
Larissa Christina shared that her day in court is February 12. She went on to thank fans for their support. This includes everyone that donated to her GoFundMe campaign. Larissa said that the money would cover her bail and legal fees since she can’t legally work yet because of her 90 Day Fiance status.

Larissa Accuses Colt of Keeping Her Cash-Strapped
Larissa Christina went on to say that she doesn’t have access to money. The 90 Day Fiance added that Colt Johnson never allowed her “access or any control of the money we made on the show and with the cameos”.
This seems to imply that either Colt or Debbie Johnson are in charge of those funds. Debbie and Colt share a bank account so maybe they keep a similar system to manage revenue from the Cameo videos. As for the TLC money, a set insider told us that isn’t paid out until after the final Tell All episode airs.

What’s The Punishment for Larissa Christina’s Crime?
90 Day Fiance fans know this is Larissa Christina’s third arrest for the same charge of domestic violence. Nevada state law says that non-US citizens convicted of this misdemeanor crime can be deported.
To remain in the United States, the charges must be downgraded to less than simple battery or dropped entirely. Her February 12 court date is significant as far as her future is concerned. This goes beyond just 90 Day Fiance.
90 Day Fiance: Larissa Trying To Set Up Colt?
An insider associated with production shared that Larissa might be trying to set Colt up. With a 90 Day Fiance situation, the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) can change status. There is a “domestic violence green card” exception. If she was the victim of domestic abuse, she could be eligible to file her own application.
So was Larissa trying to get Colt to harm her so that she could go around him to get a green card? This is the third time the 90 Day Fiance star was arrested. Was she trying to provoke Colt in each of these instances? Perhaps that’s been her goal from the beginning. It’s particularly suspicious since the Las Vegas police decided the marks on her body were self-inflicted and arrested her, rather than Colt Johnson.

What’s Next for Larissa Christina?
90 Day Fiance Larissa Christina revealed she’s staying with her friend Carmen in the aftermath. Meanwhile, it seems that Colt intends to prosecute Larissa to the full extent of the law. In addition, there is a possibility that Larissa attempted to blackmail Colt to get him to cover her bail.
A leaked text exchange between Colt and Carmen suggests that she was willing to publicly denounce her pedophile claim (that she hinted was false) if he agreed to bail her out of jail. As it stands, Larissa has a court date next month. This will definitely be worth keeping an eye on between now and then.
Make sure to tune in for the 90 Day Fiance Tell All Part 2 Sunday at 8:00 PM only on TLC.
