What can I do as a victim of marriage fraud?
Unfortunately, marriage fraud exists and there are a small number of foreign nationals that marry U.S. citizens or U.S. lawful permanent residents merely to obtain a Permanent Resident Card (“Green Card”). Fortunately, you are not alone and our office has experience helping victims of marriage fraud.
Marriage fraud is a serious federal crime and there are severe penalties for engaging in this type of activity. If you believe that you were a victim of marriage fraud, it is important to take actions to notify the government that you were not a willing participant.
Here are some questions that will help you decide whether you have been a victim of marriage fraud and whether you should hire an experienced immigration attorney to help you clear your name. This will help you to avoid spending up to FIVE (5) years in jail, paying up to $250,000 in fines, or being found ineligible to file future immigration petitions.
