Recommended Posts

As some may know from my other few posts I am back with my ex-husband :blush: and I am going to file the removal of conditions next week based on my Divorce ie I will be self petioning and reqesting that I am granted a waiver.

Question should I inform them that I am back and living with my ex as husband and wife or not mention it? :o

Thank you in advance :)

JERSEY,

I'm with meauxna. Even without the complication of having reconciled, removing conditions after a divorce calls for at least a consultation with an immigration attorney to review the facts of the situation and get some advice on what to say, how to say it, and perhaps most important of all - what not to say.

I spoke to my Lawyer a few weeks back and he said that it was a plus for me to be back with him as it would prove that the marriage was legitimate, he just assumes that it will be all OK but I want a second opinion.

Another Lawyer is not an option as I paid a damn fortune for this one :(

If a second opinion is not an option, then what did your current lawyer think of the bona fides you have? Frankly, if you're reconciled with your initial husband, I don't see that access to joint financial documents, evidence or even an affidavit from him and friends etc would be the issue, but rather the question is of what quality is the evidence you have? Does it cover a substantial period of the 2 year conditional residency?

Thank you so much for taking the time every one to get back to me. :yes:

Please could you elabarate on the highlighted area question as I am not really understanding what you mean?

We separated once before during that time of the 2 years, we have a documents in joint names like bank accounts and the house ownership, the satellite is in my name and the phone was in my name the original copies of this evidence were taken at the AOS interview except of course the house documents.

They are more then welcome to come and visit I am serious we are living as husband and wife I want this to work but am concerned that if it does go wrong again? IF and I tell them we are together and then by the time I get an interview we are separated again its going to look bad I am just trying to tell the truth I would never lie.

I also know that you are not supposed to answer any more questions or offer anymore then asked for and the 1751 does not have any area thats says " have you since reconclied with your spouse since divorce".

Mess hey?

An idea that you can run past your lawyer:

Since you're back together and have access to your ex so to speak, should you have your "ex" write an affidavit stating that you both entered into the marriage with good faith, lived together as husband and wife until X date, etc.

I agree with the Cat. Have the dear hubby write up an affidavit clearly stating the bona fides of the relationship and the validity of the marriage. It can't hurt for him to admit a certain amount of fault for the divorce either, wrapping it up with the fact that you are back together, that he is hoping this will work out (as you are, since you are back) and respectfully requesting your application be granted. Good luck!

Thanks he wrote a great letter and said that he took full resposiblity for his actions and hoped that in time I would be confident enough to trust him again and hopefuly we would re-marry that remains to be seen lol.

I also added some new bills that have been sent to the house proving that I live there and a copy of our joint bank account statement with a copy of a check also.

Lets see what happens from there fingers crossed, hell I would be pissed if they refused it when we are living together and genuinly love each other, when others have been granted the waiver and have no contact or little evidence of their marriage that would just be typical. :yes:
