    Default Marriage Fraud And Eligibility For Adjustment Of Status

    My friend has married a US Citizen (who was her friend and wanted to help her out) so she can stay in the Country after being here for 2 years illegaly. At the interview with INS they were accused of commiting marriage fraud, but she has never been charged. Now she wants to get married for love, but she was told she might never get her papers....
    Is this true?

    Thanks

    Is this true?
    Yup.

    USCIS is going to look very unfavorably upon her if she's already been accused of marriage fraud, and will be very leery of issuing her a green card.

    They may well decline to do so and deport her. She needs an attorney.

    Question Re: Marriage Fraud And Eligibility For Adjustment Of Status

    Does anyone know how to request/find out what information you have in your file by USCIS(INS)?

    Can Form G-639 Freedom of Information/Privacy Act Request used to obtain such information even if previous petition was denied and case closed?

    Thanks a lot!
