The Immigration Law Section and The Family Law Section Present:  Divorcing the Immigrant: The Intersection of Family and Immigration Law

Divorces can be messy - what can complicate the matter further is a spouse who is an immigrant. Anytime a spouse has signed an Affidavit of Support on behalf of their immigrant spouse, that affidavit becomes a legally binding contract with the United States Government. When the couple attempts to divorce, there may be continued support which differs from spousal maintenance. Negotiating a settlement will require an astute attorney to examine the consequences of the continued obligation on the U.S. citizen spouse.  This CLE examines the cross-roads of the Affidavit of Support and divorce and offers practice pointers.

Lunch and registration will begin at 11:30 am. The program will begin at noon.
