Helping Spouses Unite

If you are in a bona fide (good faith) marriage with a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, your spouse may petition for you to come to the United States. At Hurtado Immigration Law Firm, we are passionate about uniting families in America through marriage petitions. We understand that the immigration process can be complex and overwhelming. Allow our Fort Myers marriage petition attorney to walk you through the process and handle the legal legwork for you. We strive to make the process as seamless and as simple as possible.

Give us a call at (239) 800-0580 or contact us online today.

Proving a Good-Faith Marriage

Marriage petitions are only successful if the partners can prove that the marriage is in good faith and not just for the purpose of immigration.

Proof of a bona fide marriage includes:

  • Joint bank statements
  • Children’s birth certificates
  • The marriage certificate
  • Proof that prior marriages have been terminated
  • Photos of the wedding and afterwards

An immigrant visa based on marriage is considered an immediate family petition, therefore it is not subject to visa number limits and the intending immigrant spouse can immediately petition for their lawful permanent residency either through an adjustment of status or through the U.S. consulate if outside the United States.

Sham Marriage

Entering into a sham marriage for the purpose of receiving immigration benefits has severe consequences. Those caught violating the law may become inadmissible into the United States. You will not be eligible to receive any immigration benefit for life – there are very limited exceptions.

To avoid these potential penalties, we at Hurtado Immigration Law Firm highly advise against entering into a marriage simply for the immigration benefits. We are happy to help you gather evidence and documentation proving the legitimacy of your marriage.
