After being notified that he won the Green Card Lottery, Mr. M married Ms. A. This fact led the consular officer to suspect that their relationship was not a legitimate one, and Mr. M was permanently barred for alien smuggling and Ms. A was permanently barred for committing a material misrepresentation. They then contacted our firm. We were able to gather substantial documentation showing that they had a serious relationship and were engaged for more than a year before the notification of selection in the Lottery. After review of this evidence, the consular officer rescinded the inadmissibility decisions and issued to them visas — one day before the expiration of the Lottery program.
