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. This seminar discusses the ins and outs of marriage fraud concerns, how to help your clients gather evidence, and what they can expect going forward.

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.
  • Lasting Effects and Foreseeable Issues: I-751, Naturalization, etc.
