Yes, entering into a fraudulent marriage with the purpose of a foreign national to obtain permanent residency or citizenship is a federal felony. If the persons involved are charged and found guilty they can be sentenced up to five years in a federal facility and a maximum $250,000 fine to all participants. If convicted the foreign national will be deported after serving the mandated sentence and permanently barred from entering the U.S.

If a business is started by one spouse during a marriage is the other spouse entitled to part of that business if the marriage ends in divorce?

Yes because it was made and purchased since the marriage. Gifts, if proven to be for only one spouse (like a car your dad gives specifically to you) can be excluded, but anything built during the marriage, or acquired together during the marriage, is all fair game. Get an attorney if you're dealing with this issue.

If a paroled father is falsely accused of beating his son will his parole be violated or revoked?

Sadly, parolees are guilty until proven innocent. Actually, the previously convicted are guilty until proven innocent in most cases. This presumption of guilt will likely lead to violation of parole for the father. If there is an investigation, it will likely be cursory. Expect the paroled father to return to prison. This is not negativism or pessimism. This is observation of reality.

Can a divorced man join the Catholic Church and marry a Catholic woman?

A divorced man who is not in a relationship with anyone else may join the Catholic Church. He may not marry until he receives a declaration of nullity(which means the marriage was invalid from the very beginning for some reason). If it is found by the tribunal that nullity has not been proven you may not marry as your marriage to the one you civilly divorced is valid. Marriage holds the presumption of the law. It must be proven otherwise. If you or the person you civilly divorced aren't baptized then you might be able to have the marriage dissolved by the Pope using the Petrine Privilege. Talk to your diocesan chancery for more details.
