Contact ICE

If you know or suspect a couple or individual is committing marriage fraud, contact U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement at 1-866-DHS-2-ICE, or 1-866-347-2423. If convicted, an individual perpetrating marriage fraud to evade immigration laws faces a fine of up to $250,000 and five years in prison. Both the citizen and the foreigner risk punishment if both are found guilty.
