NRI Jaiprakash Gulvady from Florida, pleaded guilty to
procuring citizenship unlawfully


Los Angeles, Feb 05, 2024 A.Gary Singh

Jaiprakash Gulvady, 51, of Land O’ Lakes, pleaded guilty to procuring citizenship or naturalization unlawfully, misusing evidence of citizenship or naturalization, making false statements in a passport application, and using a passport secured by false statements.

  • Gulvady faces a maximum penalty of 10 years in federal prison. A sentencing date has not yet been set.
  • His conviction for unlawfully procuring citizenship or naturalization will result in the automatic revocation of his U.S. citizenship when he is sentenced.
  • Gulvady came to the United States in 2001 on a temporary business visa.
  • In August 2008, less than two weeks after divorcing his wife — a U.S. citizen he had married the year before — Gulvady married another U.S. citizen.
  • Based on that marriage, he adjusted his immigration status and became a lawful permanent resident in June 2009.
  • Two months later, in August 2009, he traveled to India for the first time since his 2001 arrival in the United States.
  •  While in India, he married an Indian woman. On a subsequent visit to India, Gulvady and his Indian spouse conceived their first and only child, who was born in January 2011.
  • In August 2013, Gulvady’s marriage to his U.S. citizen wife was dissolved.

The following year, Gulvady filed an application for naturalization and falsely stated that he was not currently married; that he did not have any children; and that he had never been married to more than one person at the same time.

  • Based on that application, Gulvady became a naturalized U.S. citizen in August 2014.

Using his fraudulently obtained Certificate of Naturalization as evidence of U.S. citizenship, Gulvady filed an application for a U.S. passport and falsely omitted his Indian spouse.
