I would expect that to prove the allegation the ICE would need evidence that would be persuasive to a judge.

Does anyone have any experience on what to expect when you report your spouse for marriage fraud? what kind of proof do they need? what can I expect as the reporting spouse?

Proof comes from actual document-able facts, not from imagination or expectations.

It must be presented in the context of the relationship in a way that shows that

a law or immigration regulation was violated in a willful way.

Was documentation falsified? Someone bribed or something bought in an unlawful way to support an application or petition?

For example, lying about a previous relationship may hurt your feelings but there was no law broken.

You might begin by looking at various laws & regulations.

A written statement.

Verbal statements witnessed by non interested parties who are prepared to testify.

“If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”

A written confession is best. However, it can't be gained by torture as that would make it inadmissible. Since water-bording is only one of the "enhanced interrogation techniques" where the final judgement is out, you'll have to be very creative and need to walk a thin line.

Next best thing is printed evidence, such as mail correspondence where the accused describes his or or plan of fraud. But even here you must make sure that you had a legal right to open and/or read the mail, or you will get in trouble.

Basically, fraud is very difficult to prove, and if the allegations come from a disgruntled spouse, it's even more difficult.

There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.
