Immigration Law

CA9 on Naturalization, Domicile, Residence: Park v. Barr

Park v. Barr

"We ... hold that Park, as a B-2 nonimmigrant whose lawful status had lapsed, was precluded from establishing lawful domicile in California by operation of federal law. Her divorce and subsequent marriage were therefore valid under California law, she was properly admitted for permanent residency based on her marriage to a United States citizen, and she is entitled to naturalization."
