Approved 10 year GC, after divorcing

16 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

After 13 months of waiting I finally got the email that I was waiting for...Case Status: Card Production Ordered.

This is not an example to follow but for those who are going thru domestic violence there is hope. I left the home only a few days after the initial interview with only my passport stamped. Went to a shelter where I received a lot of help from a psychologist and an occupational therapist. After a few months I filed for divorce. I had a restraining order since I left the home. When my 2 year GC was going to expire I filed my I-751 with all supporting evidence (Of course that the joing stuff was from two years prior since I don't know where my ex is) and waited.

Good luck to all!

I have two more years before I can submit for citizenship.

Congrats for your 10 year GC! (F)

I am about to file I-751 with an waiver. I got my divorce based on USC abuse. Could you tell me about the waiver you filed?! Did you only mention the good faith part and joint assets/liabilities or you also described the entire relationship?

Thank you

I am very sorry that I did not reply earlier, I was on vacation and did not check the posting.

I filled the I-751 and check off filing by myself due to divorce. I submitted evidence of the shelter I was in (they wrote a letter), I never called police so I didn't have a police report, I did have my restraining orders and also a copy of my credit card bills since he used to go on shopping sprees and I owed over $25,000 in credit cards. The rest of the bills (electric, gas, cable, etc) were from two years prior. I left the home 4 days after the interview with just my passport stamped.

Again, sorry for the delay, I hope this helps you. Good luck.
