You need to be divorced, have you filed for divorce?

He will not be able to come because we don't have any contact since i left him. Besides, the court approved my protection order petition. My advocate told me to just go to the interview alone and let them know the result. I am just curious what is going to happen when i go to the interview and if is there any possibility that the immigration officer will grant me a 2 yr conditional green card or the result will be really denied ans is subject to removal proceedings.

I haven't filed divorce yet..

I would expect they will give you time to get the divorce finalised.

I will be losing my job 2 months from now and i can't afford to hire lawyers because i live for paycheck to paycheck. I was hoping i could get free lawyers because that is really a big help. Getting extra job for extra money is hard too because i don't have resources like car, i live far from the bus stop and i only ask for friends who could take me to places but i am working on it.. I am currently looking for a place where there is a bus access and close to business area where i can possibly get a job .. In doing this transistion cost money too..

No green card yet.. I left my husband after i had my biometrics..

They will deny your AOS if go to the interview without having a pending VAWA .File VAWA and go to the interview taking the receipt and ask the officer to hold the AOS till VAWA adjudication. If you do not have a police report you will need a psychological evaluation, and you should attend at least 5/7 therapy sessions before having the evaluation done.Join the thread VAWA part 6

I guess I don't understand you haven't really been here that long, sounds like you may have been in an abusive relationship. Why wouldn't you just want to go home? Devil's advocate, it's extremely easy to get a restraining order, anyone could get one at anytime from anyone. Now perhaps you have police reports and pictures showing physical abuse. But it would be incredibly easy for anyone to come to this country get a restraining order and say I had to get a divorce and now want a green card. I'm not saying that's the case but I would have more proof than that. Your ex may be already sending them things saying it was fraud, if he was abusive I wouldn't say that would be abnormal for someone like that. If I were you I would be prepared, I personally think restraining orders are worthless I would imagine USCIS knows how easy they are to obtain. I personally would have more ammo than that. I wish you the best and hope you have friends or family here to support you through this.
