Immigration Marriage Issues

Defending the legitimacy of your marriage with USCIS in the event of a divorce or other difficulty such as relocation of one spouse can be difficult. When issues arise in your marriage that might affect your immigration status, our attorneys can evaluate your situation and advise you how to best protect yourself, and demonstrate the legitimacy of your marriage. At the Law Office of Michael Boyle, our attorneys are skilled and experienced in helping individuals and couples collect and prepare the necessary evidence to resolve the immigration issues relating to their marriage.

You will not be judged by the current state of your marriage, but whether it was honest at the inception. Let us help you demonstrate the legitimacy of your marriage with proper documentation. Contact us today.

Demonstrating the legitimacy of your marriage despite the current difficulties of your marriage or after a divorce will help you preserve your status as a permanent resident and aid you in responding to requests for information while making green card, I-751 applications, or. citizenship applications. (I-751 is the follow-up application made two years after the initial green card is issued in most marriage cases.) Even in difficult situations, well-documented honesty is the best way to address these issues. Problems like domestic abuse by a citizen spouse or either spouse's infidelity can be often successfully addressed, even if the first reaction of immigration authorities may be quite negative.

Problems with proving the validity of a current or prior marriage may include:

  • Travel outside of the U.S.
  • Periods of living apart
  • Divorce
  • Criminal problems

Remember, this area can be quite complex, and some situations may affect a green card application but not a citizenship application (or vice versa). Contact us as early as possible.

Creating a paper trail and documenting your marriage
We can help you in taking care to implement strategies of documentation that will provide evidence of your relationship. Our attorneys can advise you on how to ensure that this paper trail is established through joint bank statements, bills, credit card statements and other documents. Some forms of documentation are better evidence than others, and some are harder to gather, especially after the fact. Our team of immigration attorneys can provide you with the information you need to effectively proceed in securing the documentation you need.
