I-751: Regular divorce, battered or wait?

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'll have to explain my situation first:

I got married in 2013, got my temporary GC in March 2014. Our marriage has been getting worse, our fights have been very intense (she is very dominant and aggressive), and at this point I think I should get a divorce. I have about 6 months left before I can apply for my removal of conditions.

So I find myself considering these 3 options, without knowing much about the implications/hassle of each:

- Get a divorce and file normally. I think I have proof enough of bona fide marriage but is it adding risk to being rejected?

- Because of our fights, I feel like filing as a battered spouse could be an option (I have photos of injuries she did to me and videos of threats and violence, not sure if that's enough). What does that imply? I still love her, so if this is going to damage her in any way, like getting criminal records or go to court, I would rather not do it.

- Stay married and keep trying to fix our marriage for 6 months. All the drama started a while ago and it doesn't look like it's improving, but I could provably give it a few more chances. She wants to stay together and keep trying. Would it look bad if we move to different houses to cool down? I really would rather not having to live together. Would staying married improve my chances vs the other options?

Any help would be appreciated, I would really like to know my options before I make a decision.
