Please i need your advise. I got married in 2011 and my husband filed for FI-130. we went for interview and they were a few discrepancies, the USIS went to my previous home asking neighbors questions and also to my current home but i was at work. We received a NOID on grounds that they suspect false marriage. unfortunately my husband and i are having issues and i have since moved in with a friend and he is saying he is not going to reply to the letter. i have pleaded with him but he's not budging. One attorney advised me not to reply and we can reopen it in future if i ever decide to marry and file again, another one said to go ahead and divorce him. Please advise as i am confused now.
If the NOID states their basis or reasoning of their intent to deny and it states language suggesting marriage fraud, it is highly recommended to have an attorney review your case to see if there is a strong argument to reply back. Once there is a marriage fraud finding, Federal law prohibits you from obtaining an immigration benefit in the future.
This is not a general question. You are asking for a consultation. No problem, but not on AVVO. AVVO is a free general legal information blog, not a substitute for legal advice. Hire an immigration attorney for that. I am not prepared not willing to give legal consultations on a public blog. This is not what AVVO stands for.
