Divorce after 2 year green card-Proof of marriage with good intention

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Dear everyone,

I read that we can divorce first then apply for waiver and then renew 10 year green card ourselves. I found out my husband cheats on me with 20 girls and have been so mean to me.

What are the evidences we should do to prove marriage enter in good intention?

We have:

- Tax return together last year

- Insurance together

- Same mailing address

- Photos with family, friends, colleagues together

We dont have marriage counseling receipt since he is mentally sick so I cant stay with him, no marriage counseling needed. He is not violent to me but I don't want to get any STDs by staying with him longer.

Is it high chance I will get denied 10 year green card? Normally the process to approve for this case will be longer than a normal case right? It might take 1 year to approve. Do I need to hire a lawyer?

Thanks Visajourney family.

You can divorce and remove conditions on your own. Can you think of any more evidence you may have?

-car insurance

-beneficiaries of each others life insurance

-dependents on health insurances

-credit cards where both of you are authorized users

-joint bank accounts

-house or apartment leases both names on it

Just try to gather as much evidence as possible. Specially financial evidence. I do not think you need a lawyer if you have enough evidence of bonafide marriage. And as far as I know, the process takes the same amount of time as if you are married.

Thanks Mayde

- We have joint checking account, only 2 transactions

- He gave me his credit card (his name) to use

- No child together, no life insurance

- No house, car together (all house, car is under his name).

- Emails with his mom

I may get the written statements from our mutual friends that we entered marriage in good faith.
