I’m A Permanent Resident Going Through A Messy Divorce In Queens. Can Damaging Statements Be Used Against Me As I Seek Citizenship?

You shouldn’t worry too much about allegations in a divorce being used against you in immigration settings, but if your spouse is alleging criminal activities or has pressed charges against you for domestic violence crimes, you may have a significant problem.

These types of divorces have to be analyzed on a case by case basis, and it’s important that you work with a lawyer who listens to you and understands what your goals are, both in the divorce and in your immigration matter.

That’s the only way to develop an appropriate strategy to counter potentially damaging information that could be revealed (or fabricated) during a divorce.

At Zelenitz, Shapiro & D’Agostino, we help people in all types of situations get a fair divorce while minimizing conflict where appropriate.
