Immigration practitioners jump over various hurdles with their clients, but few are as daunting as proving a bona fide marriage. As USCIS becomes savvier in the evidence it uses, so must practitioners and their clients.

Key Topics Include:

  • Satisfying Yourself that the Marriage Is Valid, Deciding to Represent the Couple, and Initial Red Flags
  • What Is Evidence of a Bone Fide Marriage?
  • What Does USCIS Consider to Be Red Flags in a Case? Know Your Local USCIS Office
    • How to Prepare Your Clients for the Interview
  • Ethical Issues: Dual Representation, Duty to Withdraw, etc.
