Applications that are denied on suspicion of marriage fraud will have red-flag terms such as:

  • Sham marriage
  • Fraudulent marriage or
  • Marriage entered into for the sole purpose of circumscribing immigration law

If your Form I-130 has been denied, contact our immigration attorney for a free case review. We will look over the case files, the evidence submitted, and reason for the denial and recommend a plan of action. In many situations, we can strengthen the case with additional evidence that proves the marriage is true, based on love, and was made in good faith without any intention to commit marriage fraud. Our arguments for your approval may also be supported by existing case law, polygraph examinations, and third-party affidavits.

It is very common for immigration officers to apply the same standards and sets of evidence to every application, but there are many different types of marital relationships and evidence that supports a spouse’s green card application. We will look at all of the evidence and build your case to prove beyond a doubt that you have a good faith marriage.

Act Now! 30 Days Will Pass Before You Know It

The most important thing to remember about a Form I-130 denial is that you DO have an opportunity to appeal the decision, but that appeal must be launched within 30 days of the date the I-130 denial decision was mailed to you or served on you by USCIS.

As long as you do, indeed, have a true good faith marriage based on love, The Law Offices of Gail Seeram can help. In most cases, you simply need to provide more or different evidence in order to prove your marriage is legitimate and not a sham marriage intended to circumvent immigration law.
