Filing I-751 with a hardship waiver

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm sorry if this hasn't been posted to the correct topic so please accept my apologies if this is the case.

I moved to the USA from the UK on a K1 visa in September 2012 to be with my fiance. We were married in December 2012 and I filed for AOS. I got my conditional green card in September 2013 so it will expire in September 2015.

I have tried my hardest for the marriage to work but we have gone through so many problems that I want to end the relationship. My husband doesn't want any kind of physical relationship with me, he is distant, drinks a lot and I have been told many times from many different women (mainly my friends) that he makes advances on them when I'm not there. We got into an argument around 3 months ago and he hit me. It was only once and I never think he would do this again but I've just fallen out of love with him and no longer respect him.

I am due to file for removal of conditions from my conditional green card this week and I feel like I can't lie and say I'm happy when I'm not. I just don't want to be with him anymore.

Does anybody have any experience of filing I-751 Removal of conditions without their spouse? I really don't want to move back home but I can't ask my friends and family to sign affidavits and lie for me when I'm not happy.

As ever, any help would be greatly appreciated

All you have to do is tick waiver request 1.d. And submit all the same joint proofs showing you had a valid marriage that unfortunately didn't work out. No need to go the abuse route. You will need a divorce decree.

You don't have to file this week. You MAY file 90 days early, but only HAVE to file before expiration of your greencard.
