False accusations of marriage fraud

From infidelity to disagreements over how to raise children, couples file for divorce over a number of reasons. For some, suspected marriage fraud may be the reason the couple splits up. If you immigrated to the U.S. through marriage, you may have a wide variety of questions if your spouse or someone else is accusing you of tying the knot solely to move to Miami, Florida, or another U.S. city. At Cuevas, Garcia & Torres, our firm recognizes the incredible stress people in this position endure and we also know that some people are falsely accused of marriage fraud.

If you have been accused of marriage fraud, it is crucial to recognize the potentially devastating consequences you could face. According to the U.S. Immigrations and Customs Enforcement, those involved in marriage fraud may be fined as much as $250,000 and could spend five years behind bars. Unfortunately, some people are wrongfully accused of getting married solely to immigrate to the U.S.

When people are falsely accused of marriage fraud, the accusations can be devastating and leave them worried about their future. Whether you are dealing with these accusations or any other challenges related to immigration, understanding the laws is paramount. These charges can have significant consequences on your future and it is important to review your rights and carefully prepare for any obstacles you may face.
