My application was denied for false claim of citizenship on a job application while in college on an F1 visa. I have since re-married, after my divorce last year. Is it wise to re-apply with my new wife? Also what are my chances of ever getting a green card and/or a work permit now?
Even if you reapply, you do not have much chance of getting a green card since you committed a fraud on your application. Nevertheless, you might consult an attorney in your area with regard to your case,
A finding of false claim to citizenship can be very difficult to deal with. Nevertheless, consult with an experienced immigration attorney to evaluate your situation.
You have a possible argument that you are not really barred due to your false claim since it may not have been under oath, to a government official. However generally speaking, a false claim to USC carries a lifetime bar to admission and refiling could certainly get you deported.
The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.
There are a few exceptions. You should meet with an immigration attorney to determine if your situation fits one of the exceptions.
Attorney Robert Brown's (former INS Director, 1972-99) reply to your question is general in nature, and does not constitute legal advice as all facts are known to him. For specific advice or representation you should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law. Mr. Brown's reply on AVVO does not create an attorney/client relationship not constitute legal advice.
They’ll deny it again based on the false claim. You should resolve that first if it’s resolvable at all.
