I got my NOA for the I751 on 2/19 and the biometrics appointment was on 3/24. Last week, my husband assaulted me and was subsequently arrested. I'm pressing charges and am waiting for a court date. Of course, this is going to change things where our marriage is concerned. I'm trying desperately to get hold of a lawyer but in the meantime if anyone has any advice or idea of how/if this will affect my i751 and what I should do about it, I would be very grateful!

I am so sorry to hear this happened.

If you are approved without interview, then it will not affect it at all. If an interview is requested, I would then contact a lawyer. I hope against hope you will be approved without interview!

I would definitely ask a lawyer if you need to update USCIS about your possible change in marital status. I just read a thread where someone applying for citizenship was denied because of a subsequent divorce after their I 751 was approved on the basis of a joint application.

Your husbands issue is criminal law, the 751 is immigration law and divorcing him is family law. All these are important separately and cannot be mixed.

If you divorce before your joint 751 is finalized you must append your application to a waiver.

Except what she meant was, the OP filed for joint-ROC, but BEFORE the I-751 was approved the OP was divorced. Their GC was approved based on marriage and there was no interview. Because they were divorced before the card was approved they should have withdrawn the petition and self-petitioned.
