Sis, im sorry i dont have any idea about such things, But maybe you both can try to work it out :)

The process of getting you from Philippines to USA has been hard for him and you, emotionally - because of waiting, and financially. I don't think it's too easy for you to leave him and move out. I'm sure you can still find ways to work it out. :) This is just an honest opinion. :)

Yes your husband can submit a letter to USCIS stating his desire to withdraw the I-184 Affidavit of Support. However, if the GC gets processed and sent to you before his letter is acted upon, well, you get the GC and that's that.

That is incorrect, he cannot withdraw his I-864. This lady already got her conditional greencard, so the affidavit of support is in effect and cannot be withdrawn.

Yes he can withdraw his support of the joint filing which will stop the process. You will then need to continue the process yourself by changing your joint filing to one with a divorce waiver. USCIS (from my understanding) will send you a notice telling you he's withdrawn his support of the joint filing and telling you you need to change to another filing or your ROC will be denied, your status revoked and you will need to leave the country.

If your marriage is failing then leave him, he should file for divorce (so you can file for it to be recognised in PI) and then change your filing to a divorce waiver. If you have enough proof of relationship you'll succeed without his help.

You're right Penguin-ie, I overlooked OP's conditional had expired and replied as if this was AOS, when she clearly stated this was for I-151.

No more 4 am posting for me. :bonk:

I hope he can't do such a thing because right now he took my conditional gc ( the expired one) because he doesnt want me to benefit out of it...pls advice me, he's been a verbally abusive husband to me and my minor son.. He's always blaming my son for not perfectly doing things he wanted him to do... I've been disciplining my son but to my husband its not enough instead he made a deal with me that we will be good if I send my son back to Philippines. My son is twelve yrs old and we both petitioned by my husband

Make an infopass and get an I-551 (greencard) stamp in your passport.

Yes he can withdraw his support and yes it can result in denial if you don't change it to a waiver filing and prove you married in good faith.

I have a 1 yr extension for my conditional gc. Why do I need infopass? It's only for traveling right?

You said he took your expired GC. The letter only works TOGETHER with your GC. If you don't have the GC then you don't have proof of anything. That letter doesn't explain when your GC expires it only says your status is extended for one year and it doesn't have a photo proving it applies to you. Basically the extension is useless without the card. The letter is for everything your GC would do (but again ONLY together with the GC)... you presently have no proof of your status. You could be an illegal for all anyone would know.
