The Ethical Implications of Drafting A Form I-864, Affidavit of Support for a Joint Sponsor

$0.00

Description

We explore the ethics of whether attorneys should draft the Form I-864 for a co-sponsor, where the attorney represents the petitioner and/or beneficiary in the family immigration case. Because the new I-864 requires an attorney-client relationship with the co-sponsor, and because that relationship compromises the attorney’s duties to his other immigration clients, we conclude attorneys should stop drafting I-864s for co-sponsors.


This paper was published as: The Rules Have Changed: Stop Drafting I-864s for Joint Sponsors, Greg McLawsen and Gustavo Cueva, 20 Bender’s Immigr. Bull. 1287 (Nov. 15, 2015).
