Divorce and Immigration

Dealing with divorce from a foreign spouse, including ways spouses can protect themselves and their assets.

Many people marry spouses that are not U.S. citizens, whether it be for love, or – fraudulently – as a way for their spouse to gain permanent U.S. residency, also known as a green card. As stated in to a recent article by USA Today, “About 1 million foreign nationals gain legal status each year, and fully one-fourth of those are through marriage to an American citizen or someone who already is a lawful permanent resident, known as a green card holder. Of those, some estimate 5% to 15% may be fraudulent.”

Marriages involving a foreign spouse can fall apart just like marriages between U.S. citizens. But they bring with them a new set of issues that spouses need to consider. In this post we focus on clients and people who are going through divorce from a foreign spouse, including talking about on ways spouses can protect themselves and their assets.

Abusive Spouse Visiation CustodyTips on how to deal with an abusive partner when it comes to divorce, visitation, and custody.

Dealing with an abusive partner is a difficult process, one that takes a great deal of courage to overcome. Putting an end to the cycle of domestic violence by way of divorce is a way for a spouse to stop an unhealthy marriage and put an end to physical, emotional, or sexual abuse. Abusive spouses are increasingly being portrayed in the media. The recent wave of domestic violence cases in the NFL started a media firestorm in 2014, making it the “sports story of the year,” according to an article by the Denver Post.

The article also references an important part of many divorces with an abusive spouse: children. In this post we bring a renewed focus to showing what legal steps parents can take during a divorce in New York, and what they can do during subsequent visitations to protect themselves and their children.
