    I once faced the “pleasure” of testifying in a divorce case. My SIL by marriage was going through a difficult divorce, mainly becuase of her future ex’s doings, but not entirely. I got word through back channels that both of them thought I and my wife might be called to testify regarding custody issues.

    Now, I love my SIL and would do almost anything for her, but that. Frankly, they could have resolved their issues if they were not both being dicks about it, and that’s what I told them. And I told them, in the nicest, back channel way, that I would dodge any processor, and if eventually served, that I would burn both of them on the stand. And I meant EVERY SINGLE WORD.Report

    Ya know? There are worse things. Having the FBI want to talk with you, because a former coworker (who you haven’t seen in years) just did something Really Fucking Dumb and made National News.

    Dodging the FBI is inadvisable.Report

    Ain’t that the truth. As an immigration lawyer, getting witnesses into court is one of the toughest aspects of the job because many potential witnesses are immigrants as well and want as little to do with USCIS as possible. This is true even if they can derive status from the main Respondent in many cases.Report
