Congratulations....

 

Just  quick question what will happen to your ROC application if your divorce decree taking so long to get finalize...

 

 

 

 

Since we filed out divorce jointly and had no assets or children, it was finalized in 90 days.

 

But for people that filed jointly and are waiting on their divorce process, there are probably 2 scenarios:

 

1. USCIS is unaware of the divorce proceeding and the joint filing got approved before the divorce is finalized

2. USCIS is aware of the divorce proceeding and will wait to adjudicate the case after the divorce is finalized 

 

In either scenario, once the divorce is finalized, you should send an update to USCIS so you don't run into any problems when applying for citizenship.

 

Hope that helps!

Thanks for the reply really helpful. May i know what state u filed your divorce? Not sure if 90 days is possible in CA...

 

And goodluck to your party!!!

Yes, I filed in CO which has a 90-day waiting period.  

In CA, the waiting period is 6 months, from the date of service.

You are a professional lawyer. Or soon to be one. I'm sure that helped.

 

Are you planning to practice immigration law? You have to. 😁


1. Spouse 1 went through Diversity Lottery Green Card and Citizenship application processes 

2. Spouse 2 went through K1 (I-129F) and AOS (I-485) processes

3. ROC (I-751) window for Spouse 2 opens in Jan 2019

Got my card yesterday!

After case approved on 01/03, USCIS has been really good about keeping me updated.

So happy this is finally over.

Good luck to everyone still waiting!
