Immigration and Family Law and Divorce

M.C. Law Group, LLC is uniquely positioned to represent clients who are concerned about the immigration consequences of their family law disputes. All of our lawyers are immigration lawyer and attorneys in addition to the other areas of law they practice. Our lawyers represent clients in all types of family law matters, including, but not limited to:

  • domestic and international divorces
  • contempt hearings
  • adoptions, including international adoptions
  • child custody and visitation
  • child support and modification, including international child support enforcement
  • alimony and maintenance
  • property division
  • post-dissolution judgment issues

Our immigration lawyers will carefully guide our clients through the complicated and sometimes emotionally charged process of family disputes to avoid jeopardizing clients’ immigration status. Our attorneys will ensure that our clients are aware of the potential immigration pitfalls of a divorce, domestic violence, or failure to pay child support.

Also, if you are a non-citizen married to a U.S. citizen and have obtained conditional Legal Permanent Residency (LPR) status through your marriage, but find that the situation is not working, or worse, you are the victim of domestic abuse and/or violence, there are ways you can separate or divorce without losing your LPR status. Only an attorney who has experience in both immigration and family law will be able to advise a client on how to prevent further abuse without the cost of losing the client’s immigration status.

It is important to know that not paying court ordered child support can have negative consequences on your current immigration status and your future eligibility to obtain citizenship. If you are a non-citizen who has to pay child support and you have fallen behind on payments because of hard times, we can help modify the child support order, work out payment plans, and re-negotiate the terms of the court order.

Divorce and family law disputes are often emotionally exhausting experiences, and they may also have dire immigration consequences for a non-citizen. Our family law and immigration attorneys have the experience and knowledge needed to protect your rights as a non-citizen in a family law dispute.
