What is the process of marrying an immigrant?

The procedure for marrying an immigrant differs according to the country and the individual’s particular circumstances. Typically, it entails securing a marriage visa or sponsorship, supplying the relevant paperwork, going through background investigations, and paying expenses.


Immigration Laws and Lawsuits

It is advised to obtain assistance from an experienced immigration attorney because the process can be complicated and dilatory. The procedure could involve completing the necessary documentation, providing evidence of the genuine relationship, and then waiting for the application to be approved.

In some instances, a couple may need to attend the interview together if it’s required. Other prerequisites, such as a medical exam and a police check, might also be necessary for some countries.

Immigration Fraud Case Fabricated Paperwork

A Japanese immigration lawyer was detained in 2016 on suspicion of fabricating paperwork to assist foreign citizens in obtaining visas. The attorney allegedly charged between $100,000 and $500,000 for each case and had been doing so for several years. Immigration officers who were conducting a routine inspection of the papers provided by his clients discovered irregularities, leading to his capture. According to reports, the suspect fabricated false job contracts and other paperwork to support his clients’ visa applications.

The investigation also turned up prior disciplinary actions against the attorney, including penalties for similar offenses. Critics have called for stricter regulations and closer examination of immigration attorneys as a result of the case, which has raised questions about the integrity of Japan’s immigration system. The suspect was accused of forgery and breaking immigration rules, and if found guilty, he could spend up to 10 years in jail.
