Recommended Posts

I am in a complicated situation right now. I moved out for a month becasue of an unhappy marriage then filed for a divorce last Monday. Now I moved back to my friend so am scared that if am gonna file for AR-11 they would find out where I live at. I only have Conditional green card . I don't want my friend to get involve though cuz my husband is like telling me that when we are divorced am an illegal alien now and that the immigration will track me down and would deport me. he doesn't believe me that I can apply ROC by myself and he is like saying he would send a letter to the immigration that am divorcing and abondoning him and that I used him for greencard. He is doing the same thing to me to his ex Chinese wife he made up a story saying that she was threathning our relationship (I was a fiancee at that time) which wasn't true. i am just scared I might deported I am so ready to change address I wanna do everything to be legal as much as I can. I don't want my friend to be in trouble if am gonna be an illegal. Thank you very much for the help.

I am sorry your husband is being such a jerk. He cannot get you deported, and USCIS is very familiar with unhappy spouses who complain when an honest relationship breaks down - as so many do - and complain that their spouse only married them for a green card.

When you are divorced, you are allowed to file right away to remove the conditions on your green card. There is a part on the form near the bottom that you fill out requesting a 'waiver' from the normal procedure of filing together with your spouse. Check off that box that you are filing because you are divorced. You will still have to submit evidence that you got married for the right reasons and not immigration reasons, so while you are still married, make sure you get copies of joint bank account statements, any joint bills or liabilities you have together, any sort of documentary evidence that shows you two really did plan on living the rest of your lives together as a normal married couple. Affidavits from family, friends and neighbours also help. If you are covered under his employer's health plan you should be able to get a statement of that; if you have a driver's license showing your joint address, that is good. Think outside of the box for anything that you have that shows you as a married couple. Start collecting all of this now so that when your divorce is final you can send it all in together with the divorce decree. You can certainly include a letter about why the marriage broke down and why you left, and you will probably have an interview with USCIS where you can also explain things in person.

Your husband is trying to intimidate you and threaten you but he really does not have any power unless his accusations are true and he can prove it. Since they aren't, he won't be able to prove it - he will just be another unhappy husband who is angry at his wife and trying to make things difficult for her.

I'm sorry that things didn't work out as you had hoped. Good luck, and remember - he can't deport you so do what you can to create a new life for yourself. You aren't going to get your friend in trouble either. You are here legally until your current green card expires or your divorce is final - when you will then request the removal of conditions on your green card. Good luck.

thank you so much for your advice. sucks thou because last Sunday he took all of my debit,credit and insurance cards. I probably will just try to print out my medical record online since I dont have a copy of my insurance card. I took some copies of our bills together and insurance statements and I have our tenant and his cousin to testify and write an affidavit about how he treated me so hopefully it would help. I also have a copy of his reciept from the mental hospital because he tried to kill himself, he was there for 5 days. Thank you so much again! Have a good day!

Those are good. Make sure those affidavits do state that they believed you were in a valid relationship and that he was the one who became abusive. You want them to focus on your marriage being real. If you had a debit card was it for a joint account? If so, go to that bank and ask them to print out a letter stating it was a joint account from xxx date to xxx date which they should be able to do even if he has now changed the account. You are only asking about when you were a legal entity on that account, whether as a joint account or an authorized user. You could write the credit card company with the same request.

Good luck!

I am also moving your topic from the US citizenship forum to the Removal of Conditions forum - I meant to do that yesterday but forgot :blush: .
