    Pinki -- This is a REALLY GOOD thing. You're upset because you're being emotional and worried about things like "blame" and "feeling stupid." Don't be. Who cares? Soon, you will never see this person ever again.
    You should be relieved because your helper has done the dirty work for you. Now you don't have to fire her, nor do you have to take any legal responsibility for firing her.
    Tell her straight that you'll pay out her one month. She should be happy with the extra money.
    Think of it not as a personal relationship but as a boss who's been secretly hoping to fire an unpleasant employee who then quits of her own free will.
    As for immigration -- I think they only raise an eyebrow with repeat offenders -- like people who go through helpers the way people go through socks. You had her for 8 months and it didn't work out. I don't think that will be held against you.
