Thread: Lied on Residence application...what to do, what will happen?

  1. #1
    A person I know has been a US resident for about 3 years now. I know they have lied about their personal info on the application (marital status and maybe more). I would like to know...
    1. What would happen if I told?
    2. Who do I tell exactly?
    3. What would happen to his Residence status?

    I need this info A.S.A.P..thanks

    What is your motivation? What would happen depends upon how this person acquired residence.
    The above is simply an opinion. Your mileage may vary. For immigration issues, please consult an immigration attorney.

    Contact the District Attorney, as well as local DHS office.

    No, I'm not evil. My motivation is to stop this man... He lied so he can commit polygamy!!!

  7. #7
    Polygamy is prohibited under US Constitution and INA.

    You should contact the local office of DHS and ask them of what actions you should take and how to file the complaint.

    Try www.uscis.gov for more info

    Good Luck,

    Misrepresentations are only important when they are material to the immigration benefit received. The Courts have interpreted materiality in many different ways; the Chaunt test is a good place to start but later it was modified to define a material misrepresentation as that capable of influencing the decision of the adjudicator. Under that assumption, there's no need for the government to prove the alien was disqualified to obtain the benefit in question but did so by means of the representation. Instead, a presumption of disqualification exists, but the alien can rebut it by establishing he or she is qualified to receive the benefit even if the true facts are known.
    Do as you please and have a great day!

    OP asked simple questions:

    1. What would happen if I told?
    2. Who do I tell exactly?
    3. What would happen to his Residence status?

    And this is what OP stated:

    "A person I know has been a US resident for about 3 years now. I know they have lied about their personal info on the application (marital status and maybe more)".


    Apparently, OP beleives that someone he/she knows has given a false info on residency application.
    That would be the perjury, under INA, if it was true.
    If so, the benefit will be revoked.

    Contacting DHS makes sense.

    The benefit would be revoked "were illegally procured or were procured by concealment of a material fact or by willful misrepresentation" This required the element of materiality. However, the person wouldn't be able to show good moral character under 8 U.S.C. 1101(f)(6), preventing naturalization.
    Perjury involves only misrepresentations of material facts. (18 USC 1621).
