Immigration issues and splitting up with a spouse

If you and your spouse are planning on filing for divorce, a wide variety of legal issues may affect you, such as property division and child support obligations. However, divorce could also have an impact on you or your spouse's residence status or raise other concerns related to immigration. At Cuevas, Garcia & Torres, we know how difficult these challenges can be for those who live in Miami and we believe that people in this position deserve a voice.

If you split up with your marital partner, you could be affected in a variety of ways if you are working through certain types of immigration issues. In some cases, people who divorce their spouse may even be deported from the country, which underlines the importance of approaching your divorce properly and developing an idea of what to expect.

It is important to point out that other difficulties may arise, such as accusations of marriage fraud. For example, someone may accuse their spouse of marrying them solely for immigration-related purposes. That said, it is important to keep in mind that some of these accusations are based on lies and those who falsely accuse their spouse of manipulating the system can face harsh penalties.

Regardless of the nature of your affairs, it is vital to ensure that your rights are protected and that you recognize the most appropriate way to move forward. On the section of our site devoted to immigrant visas, you can access more material relevant to residence status and other immigration issues that may arise during a divorce.
