    Hello my non citizen friend committed tax and welfare fraud in the same year. Being that they claimed children born her but the children was outside the country for almost a year at time of filing both. Welfare for the children while working also claiming taxes on them. The children where outside the country. Can it lead to jail and deportation. What legal standing can my friend use as defense? Thanks

    This is a very serious matter. Your friend needs to consult a criminal defense attorney immediately.

    Thank you kindly I'll tell my friend and pray its not too bad. Maybe if we can say it was done out of ignorance the court will have leniency.
