Video: The Form I-864 & the right to indefinite spousal support

Family law attorneys need to understand that certain immigrants are entitled to financial support far in excess of what would be prescribed by state family law. Under the Form I-864, Affidavit of Support, sponsored immigrants are entitled to indefinite financial support from their sponsors, potentially for the remainder of their lives. This presentation – given today for North Carolina Advocates for Justice – covers what family law practitioners should know about their Affidavit of Support. Hats off to my colleague and co-counsel, Valeria Cessaneli, for her excellent discussion from a family law perspective (her portion begins around 40 minutes into the video).

A full video of our presentation and slides are below.
