YOUR LEGAL RIGHTS: 
Analysis: When Legal Malpractice Constitutes Fraud
Legal malpractice occurs when a lawyer fails to competently perform their legal duties, resulting in harm to their client. However, the line between legal malpractice and outright fraud can sometimes blur. This analysis explores when legal malpractice crosses into fraud, particularly in situations where state or federal law is explicit, case law is well-settled, and the outcome of a legal matter is predictable. The discussion focuses on whether giving a client false hope and charging a legal fee under these circumstances constitutes fraud. For more information on this analysis, please visit the Law Firm of Figeroux and Associates at www.askthelawyer.us.

Marriage Fraud for Green Card Purposes and Federal Immigration Law Protections – When There Are Children In the Marriage
Marriage fraud for Green Card purposes is a significant issue that challenges the integrity of the U.S. immigration system and can profoundly affect U.S. citizen spouses. This issue becomes even more complex when children are involved, as the presence of children can obscure the fraudulent nature of the marriage. This analysis explores how federal immigration laws are designed to protect U.S. citizen spouses from immigrants who may enter into marriages not for love but for immigration benefits, even when there are children from the marriage.
