Two Mistakes: Being Young and In Love

     Foreigners hire immigration professionals so that person can advise as to the most effective route for receiving the benefit wanted. For example, in a case where a foreign national marries a U.S. citizen, the benefit can be legal permanent residency. Unfortunately, I sometimes see young men and women who believe they know best. They think that because they are in love, Immigration will approve the case automatically and without any problems. Sadly, this is not the case.  
     Immigration does not always conduct investigations to determine whether neighbors, family members, and friends know that the couple lives together. Instead, Immigration relies on documents produced by the couple at an interview. For this reason, my office requires couples to bring original documents which we then prepare in a manner which makes it easy for the Immigration Officer to review the evidence and approve the case. No amount of handholding or nose rubbing in front of the Officer is going to take the place of strong evidence of a bona fide relationship.
      If the case is denied by the Immigration Officer, the foreign national may be ordered removed. In other words, he or she will be placed in proceedings before an Immigration Judge. The foreign national will once again have to try to prove that the marriage is a real one. Again, the foreigner will have to pay attorney fees. With hope, the second time the foreigner will follow the advice of the attorney.
