Since our last webinar, “Overcoming NOIDs and RFEs: “Fraudulent” Nigerian Divorce Decrees” in June 2021, there have been significant developments regarding Nigerian divorce decrees within the context of U.S. immigration. USCIS has intensified its scrutiny and adopted novel, uncompromising approaches when assessing the authenticity of Nigerian divorce decrees. Consequently, many Nigerian immigrants now face challenges and roadblocks not only in seeking legal residency but also during the removal of conditions process, naturalization process, and sometimes when attempting to petition for a relative as naturalized U.S. citizens.

In this upcoming webinar, we are honored to feature a guest speaker, Henry O. Chichi, Esq., an experienced Nigerian lawyer. Together, we will delve into the nuanced components of the Nigerian divorce process under the Matrimonial Causes Act, uncovering the intricacies behind USCIS’ scrutiny. We will also discuss recent updates, trends, and legal resolutions in handling Nigerian divorce decrees at various stages of the U.S. immigration process while advocating for your client.
