As a VAWA applicant, would working illegally via false claim of citizenship cause my case to be denied? 1 Answers as of May 20, 2011As a VAWA applicant, (I haven't filed it yet) would working illegally via false claim of citizenship cause my case to be denied or even possibly inadmissible? How would they know? What exactly would they ask? Would they bring this up during adjustment of status interview? They usually know applicants work here illegally, don't they? How else would they manage to work here illegally with out claiming citizenship? In that case, wouldn't they forgive it then? If not, would I qualify for a waiver? My dad is an LPR who will be a citizen in 2 years. Would the judge give a special consideration or even forgive this considering having lived here for 25 years with no criminal conviction and having been a taxpayer? If I get deported, would I be able to re-enter via my dad's petition?

Falsely claiming to be a USC forecloses all possibility of receiving an immigration benefit to most applicants. There are several exceptions, which are certainly inapplicable to your circumstances. Please consult competent counsel on this VAWA application. Good luck!
