Removal of conditions

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Good morning all,

on a personal note for those of you know me I am waiting on my interveiw :wacko::o:ranting: .

I have a friend who got married a few years ago well his wife has been acting strange and about 1 year ago she walked out on him and moved to Florida. They have been in contact however even though they tried working things out, things went SOUR. He has filed for a divorce but while the process was in effect he got a letter stating that he needs to go in for an interveiw to remove conditions. His lawyer told him that he showed ignore the letter and not go in for it, stay put and when he refinds someone remarry and refile. But, I think the lawyer is wrong, that to me is straigh up fraud. I need your help because even though I am telling him it is fraud and he can and will be in big trouble with UNCLE SAM he won't believe me. Can someone please shed some light my way?

I told him that seeing that he let the paper worked get denied and he is only on a conditioonal green card he will get in SERIOUS trouble if he gets pulled over or arreested because he is now out of status..am I right? or its thw lawyer right and my friend is ok? Help him out please?


I do not wish to share any information about this dead end journey.........I have reached my final destination on this train, and it is time for me to get off.

THIS TOO SHALL PASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You are right. He will be out of status and subject to deportation. He will have to file to remove conditions on his own... someone else who is more knowledgable about this can help with that. Sadly, there are many of these stories here lately.

9-25-06 Interview: APPROVED!

10-16-06 Flt to US, POE Detroit

11-5-06 Married

7-2-07 Green card received

9-12-08 Filed for divorce

12-5-08 Court hearing - divorce final

A great marriage is not when the "perfect couple" comes together.

It is when an imperfect couple learns to enjoy their differences.

I don't understand how he got called for an interview if he has not filed to remove his conditions. If his divorce isn't finalized yet, his only option is to file jointly with his wife. When his divorce is final, then he may file on his own to remove the conditions.

IMHO if you are in doubt of your friend's lawyer's advice, you should persuade him to get a second opinion from another immigration attorney.

Thanks Jen, I just really don't want to see him go.

hcj-He wont I told him to go an dget another advice but he claims that it is the best lawyer in his hometown and he believes him. He have been separated from his wife all this time however they have been working together to get him his papers. I guess he just realized that she really does not want to get back with him ( she know has a new boyfriend).

He must have submitted the joint petition. Not appearing for an interview would render his application denied. A recommendation to ignore the letter and find another USC to marry from his attorney causes me to wonder if the attorney sees something specific with his case, that might hinder adjustment under the waiver. Marrying while in removal proceedings can bring up other issues, as well. I'd recommend another consultation with an attorney, he could look at http://www.aila.org for one in his area.
