It may come as a shock to learn of a common immigration form that may require a divorce court to award substantial financial support to the former spouse of a noncitizen. The I-864 Affidavit of Support may require payment of financial support for an unlimited period of time, even when a marriage was short lived. This article discusses the legal remedies available to a noncitizen who sues his or her former spouse for support on the basis of this immigration form.
