I need some help from people who went thru the same or can give me some advice about the following:
Im about to remove the conditions. I 751
Im divorced and i see here that its good to send personal statements with it. Now i am seriously having a hard time figuring out what to do.
1. Check the box, that says that i entered the marriage in good faith but it ended with a divorce OR
2. Check the box, that says that i entered the marriage in good faith but i was battered by my spouse
The reason why i don't know what to do is because I have evidences that our marriage was entered in good faith. Pictures, letters, before the marriage. Of the wedding, honeymoon, emails from in laws, from friends and also pictures, during the marriage. But i also have evidences of what i went thru and why our marriage ended.. photos of me and my bruises, video of him admitting what he had done but i dont have police records or medical records since i was in a dangerous situation where i was so brainwashed i was threatened scared to ask for help. I divorced and never talked to him again he tried to harass me but i cut off every communication with him.
So in my statement should i leave out the abuse or what should i do?
Also do i check the box divorced or single?
Thank you for any answers.

Maiden name on marriage certificate 1:54 pm today
Read 13 Times
I am a U.S. citizen. I just married my wife in Nigeria on July 2017. When we got our marriage certificate later, she put in her maiden name instead of her married name (my last name). I am currently filling out a I-130 form for her to move to the U.S. after she finishes college this year. Should I put in her married name in the form or her maiden name as it shows in the marriage certificate? And would the fact that she didn't put in her new married name affect the process in any way?
NVC Document Cover Sheet 1:52 pm today

Would someone please tell me what the petitioner documents are listed under the supporting documents section of the cover sheet given by NCV for a CR1? I am trying to avoid getting a checklist for not submitting something. I was under the impression that I did not need to send my documents to NVC because I submitted all of my docs to USCIS with my i130....
New York State: Driving License Expiry Date Question 1:49 pm today
Read 18 Times
Hopefully this is the right forum to post this in. Hoping someone can shed some light on this situation for me.
I entered the USA on a K1 visa, and got married in September. AOS/EAD/AP was filed on 28th September 2017 and they received on the 1st of October. I have since received my EAD/AP and recently passed my NYS permit test and received the card in the mail.
I noticed my driver's permit is only valid for a year, which I am assuming is because my EAD is only valid for a year. I am sitting my road test soon and I'm assuming my actual license will also have the same expiry date.
My question is , once I've got my green card , do I just need to go back to the DMV to get them to change the expiry date to a normal time period , rather than the 12 months .. hope that makes sense... just looking to get some clarity on what to do.
