BIA on 204(c) (unpub.)


"To the extent that the beneficiary's former spouse may not have been legally free to marry her at the time of their marriage, the Director should address the applicability of section 204(c) of the Act in such an instance. We note that section 204(c) of the Act does not apply to fraud based on a non-existent marriage." – Matter of X-, Sept. 21, 2012 (unpub.)  [Hats off to Paige L. Ellison.]
