If an immigration attorney finds during the course of his representation that his client is perpetuating a fraud what are his duties/responsibilities and to whom? Is there a duty to report it? Can the attorney report it if they wish or is there a duty to the client not to report it? Must they withdraw from the representation?
The fraud is a marriage fraud. They initially claimed to be residing together but through the course of representation it has become clear they do not and that their marriage is a "sham."
