Overcoming Difficulties with Foreign Documents

This 90 minute web seminar was recorded live on June 6, 2013, from 2:00 pm-3:30 pm eastern time.

Proving your client's identity and marital status seems simple. In many cases you just submit a copy of their birth or marriage certificate, or their divorce decree. But what happens when (for various reasons) your client doesn't have these documents? This seminar addresses some common issues that arise as a result of deficiencies in foreign documents.

  • Common Issues with Certificates — Birth, Marriage, and Divorce
  • Methods to Prove That a Foreign Marriage or Divorce Is Effective
  • Matter of Hosseinian and Matter of Ma
  • Foreign Document Certification Process — When and How to Use It
  • Proving Validity of Foreign Documents — Using the Library of Congress, Country Experts and Other Resources
  • Affidavits From Friends and Relatives in Lieu of Original Documents
  • Problematic Countries — Kenya, Somalia, Liberia, China, India, etc.
