Marriage Fraud

 

If you have been accused of marriage fraud, you should immediately seek the advice of a criminal defense attorney with immigration law experience. Marriage fraud is a serious charge that can lead to imprisonment and subsequent deportation if you are not a U.S. Citizen. These claims are sometimes made by the government during the interview process for obtaining a green card or citizenship.

In California, any individual who knowingly enters into a marriage for the purpose of evading any provision of the immigration laws shall be imprisoned for not more than 5 years, or fined not more than $250,000, or both.
