Removal of Conditions

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Good Day Everyone! I had a friend who come to the USA as a tourist. She married here and applied for AOS. It was granted and now she filed again for Removal of Conditions and just have her biometrics last month. With her entire stay with her husband they always quarrel and it ended with the husband hitting his wife. The wife at first did not seek police help even if she is battered because she is afraid it might affect her paper before being on AOS. It happen again when she got her greencard and this time she called the police telling them that her husband beats her whenever they had argument. It was in there that she learned that he has a case before that is CRUEL and INHUMANE resulting his first wife to divorce him(he beats his children and hits the first wife). These few days after her biometrics they had a heated argument over money that he again hit her. This time she called the police and they put her husband in jail resulting her to go to court and ask for protection. The court granted it. They were no longer live in one roof as it is in court's order that the man gets his things and leave his wife in his apartment. The problem of my friend is will it affect her pending Removal of Conditions? What will she do 'coz until now she is still waiting for her greencard. Can she proceed to apply to for US Citizenship in the future?

She will be fine as long as she can prove that she entered the marriage in good faith and that she's now separated from her husband due to the abuse she had to endure. Based on what you said it looks like she has a very solid case if she shows the restraining and court orders. She will also be able to file for US citizenship without her husband.

It shouldn't affect her pending petition at all. Furthermore, if she ends up divorcing, it will push her date of eligibility back for Naturalisation by 2 years, but shouldn't do much more than that.
