Fraud, Marriage Fraud and False Testimony

This 90 minute audio seminar was originally presented June 2, 2011.

While honesty is the best policy, many clients chose other options at some point in the immigration process. All practitioners need to be aware of fraud and willful misrepresentation issues, including waiver options. In marriage cases, fraud takes on an even more damaging complexion. Document fraud and false testimony also can cause major problems. Attorneys should know how to spot these issues in cases and successfully challenge government findings in these difficult areas.

  • Fraud and Willful Misrepresentation: The Legal Standards
  • Materiality and Willfulness
  • The Finer Art of a §212(i) Waiver
  • Marriage Fraud Is Different
  • Overcoming Marriage Fraud and Standard of Proof
  • Do Annulments and Subsequent Marriages Matter?
  • Document Fraud
  • What Is and Is Not False Testimony—Toribio-Chavez v. Holder
