I-864 Withdrawal Letter Sent, Pending I-751 and Divorce

15 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi VJers,

 

I know my situation can not be the first, but since some of the similar situation dates back to 2012, 2013, I thought it would be best to ask for fresh ideas and suggestions based on today's USCIS scenario. I've been a member for a long time and avid user of VJ, but mostly on lurking and contributing every now and again, when certain situations I've actually been through myself arises.

 

Right now, I am stuck as to not knowing the way forward, I have ideas which includes filing the N400 but that might be a risk. I've been married since Jan, 2015, met in 2014, came to the U.S with a Student Visa and while I'm sure me and wife still loves each other, but she says she's just not in-love with me anymore and getting a divorce. Like any marriage, I know the sea is not always smooth sailing, there will be tough times but it seems I just can not survive the rough tide.

 

I filed for ROC in November, 2017 and NOA1 is 11/22/17, Biometrics 12/21/2017. Last week, my wife sent I-864 withdrawal letter because after talking to a few friends who had been or are in similar situation. The next day 01/18/19, I received a notification that my case has been transferred to another jurisdiction, found out it's to Nebraska, but, I'm in Texas. 

 

We still live together, separate rooms and the final separation date might be in July, My 18 months extension letter expires July, 14 as well. I know that she would have the divorce forms, either signed and ready as my gut tells me.

 

So my question here is simple, what can I do in terms of my pending I-751, don't want it denied based on her letter of withdrawal and if an interview is scheduled, without a divorce decree yet, what are my options?

This is the bad thing about taking legal advice from "friends". It can be so inaccurate. Your ex cannot withdraw the I-864 at this point. Carry on with RoC and send in a copy of the divorce decree once you get it.

Your wife cannot just withdraw from her I-864 obligations simply by sending a letter. Since you have already adjusted to a permanent resident (GC) status, there is not much she can do. As per I-864 instructions, her obligations would continue until the following conditions are met:

 

How Long Does My Obligation as a Sponsor Continue?
Your obligation to support the immigrants you are sponsoring in this Affidavit of Support will continue until the sponsored
immigrant becomes a U.S. citizen, or can be credited with 40 qualifying quarters of work in the United States.
Although 40 qualifying quarters of work (credits) generally equates to 10 years of work, in certain cases the work of a
spouse or parent adds qualifying quarters. The Social Security Administration can provide information on how to count
qualifying quarters (credits) of work.
The obligation also ends if you or the sponsored immigrant dies or if the sponsored immigrant ceases to be a lawful
permanent resident. Divorce does not end the sponsorship obligation.

 

Regarding your ROC petition, if you filed jointly you need to convert it to divorce waiver petition. There is plenty of information on this topic in this forum, check under the Effects of Major Family Changes on Immigration Benefits sub-forum.

Also, here is some more information on this topic from USCIS:

https://www.uscis.gov/green-card/after-green-card-granted/conditional-permanent-residence/remove-conditions-permanent-residence-based-marriage

 

If You Are In Divorce Proceedings But Are Not Yet Divorced

If you are still married, but legally separated and/or in pending divorce or annulment proceedings, and:

  • You filed a waiver request. We will issue a request for evidence (RFE) specifically asking for a copy of the final divorce decree or annulment (if applicable).
  • You filed a Form I-751 petition jointly. We will issue a request for evidence (RFE) specifically asking for a copy of the final divorce decree or annulment and a statement that you would like to have your joint filing petition treated as a waiver.

Upon receipt of the final divorce decree or annulment within the specified time period, we will amend the petition, to indicate that eligibility has been established for a waiver of the joint filing requirement based on the termination of the marriage.

 

Hope this helps & good luck!

She can't withdraw the I-864 anymore.

 

If things get nasty in the divorce process, it might not be a bad idea to bring up the I-864 with a divorce attorney regarding division of assets. 😆

Not possible.

Your death, losing your LPR status (note: ONLY by filing an I-407 or by a final order of removal by an immigration judge - an I-751 denial letter does NOT terminate I-864 obligations), becoming a citizen, or accumulating 40 quarters of work as a LPR are the only ways she can do this, which obviously a letter does not do. You could divorce and remarry, and the I-864 would still be in effect.

The friends egging her on are incorrect, but this is nothing new.

Listen to your gut. Most importantly protect yourself and look after YOU, and look after YOUR interests at this point.

Nothing really until divorce is final. If you as the petitioner notify that you wish to switch to a divorce waiver  then they will RFE you for the final divorce decree, which of course you don't have yet.

If you don't reply to the RFE with it - standard RFE response time is 87 days - then you will receive a denial letter (note, this is a denial letter - not immediate termination of status), and you would have extra hoops to jump through, up to and including a possible hearing with an immigration judge and having to file a new I-751 with a divorce waiver off the bat and another long wait for it to be adjudicated.

Not ideal, but not the end of the world or your time in the US - just a stressful PITA which you really don't want to go through.

At the interview you would request a switch to a divorce waiver. If you didn't have the decree at that time, you would await the RFE.

Since it will no longer be a joint filing, your I-751 cannot  be approved until the divorce is final.

As I am sure you can see, timing is everything with this situation you are in now....

I-751 #1- May2015 [Denied]

 

Early May 2015 : I-751 Joint filing package sent fedex next day 09:00am from UK ($lots - thanks). 
May 2015: Notice of receipt/1yr extension received, dated day of receipt. This was forwarded to me outside the US, and no issues re-entering multiple times.
June 2015: Biometrics completed - walk in / argument, stressing proof of imminent travel and multiple prior inconvenient appointments & reschedules.
May 2016: Vermont Service Centre updated to processing May 2015 cases, therefore my case is now classed as outside normal processing time
May 2016: Service request sent (whatever that is) after calling to find out why I am still waiting after 12 months. Unable to tell me anything.
May 2016: Letter received in response, stating processing is on hold due to 'pending security checks' with no other information. Not helpful.
May 2016: (7am) - Infopass appointment for I-551 Stamp in passport.  (8am) - Returned to USCIS office for another I-551 stamp after realizing the dumbass put the expiry stamp as 2015 not 2017. Two entire passport pages wasted. Cheers. 

Oct 2016: Infopass appointment (not at local office). USCIS have sent my file to an overseas office, in a country that neither myself or my spouse have ever resided in. It has sat there untouched for five months. Why? Who knows. Internal query requesting urgent clarification is sent by USCIS officer.  
Oct 2016: An identical 'pending security check'  letter received, addressing precisely none of my or the immigration officers legitimate queries. 
Nov 2016: Infopass appointment: My file is now back in the US and at my local office...no other updates or progress. 
Jan 2017: Notification that an interview has been scheduled at a local office. Bizarrely still no RFE... 
Jan 2017: 2hr wait, then interview terminated before it began, due to moving my ID to another state 2 wks prior. New interview 'in a few months...maybe.'       Informed them that divorce proceedings are underway, but not finalised at this time. 
March 2017: An Interview was scheduled - marked as no-show as they didn't actually send out a notification of interview. FML 
April  2017: Filed an official complaint with the ombudsman, and have requested Senator & Congressman assistance - enough is enough. 
May 2017: Yet another infopass. No updates, interview of further progress. Still no response from Congressperson, Senator, or Ombudsman received. 
June 2017: 68 days after contacting them, the Ombudsman finally contacted USCIS. 'It may take up to 60 days to receive a response'.   
July 2017:  A follow up enquiry sent by Ombudsman to USCIS after receiving no response or action after 45 days. I am Jack's complete lack of surprise. 
August 2017: 60 days has come and gone with no response from USCIS. Contacted the Ombudsman who will contact them AGAIN. 
August 2017: Email from Ombudsman - USCIS have scheduled an interview at the very end of August .  
August 2017: Interview - switched to a (finalised) divorce waiver. Told that decision will be made that afternoon, but no problems foreseen with my case. 
September 2017: Now 4 weeks since interview, my file has not moved from the officers desk, and no decision is showing when I call and speak to a Tier 2.  
September 2017: Request filed for Senator assistance (a different senator - maybe I will get a reply & assistance from this one?). 
October 2017: 37 days since interview....and no decision.  W, and indeed, TF is going on???? 
October 2017: Letter of Denial received - reason given as 'I-751 petition was not properly filed'. Discovered ex-spouse made false allegations to USCIS

I-751 #2 - Oct 2017 [Pending] 

October 2017: Within 72hrs of receiving denial notice, a new waiver I-751, divorce decree & $680 cheque, sent to Vermont via FedEx overnight 9am priority.  

October 2017: I-797C Receipt/extension letter received, dated day of receipt at VSC 

October 2017: Another I-551 stamp obtained at infopass appointment, as the extension letter is useless with a 2yr card that expired 2.5yrs ago! 

November 2017: Biometrics completed (early walk-in) 

2018: Re-entered US multiple times with second I-751 extension letter & stamp. Quick trip to secondary required to verify, and stamped in as normal

  

N-400 Feb 2018 [Pending] 

February 2018: N-400 filed online.  $725 paid to the USCIS paperwork wastage fund

February 2018: Biometrics completed (walk-in)

Well the good news is that USCIS allows people to file RoC with a divorce waiver or to amend their RoC filing to a divorce waiver so long as a copy of the divorce decree is provided. Your ex's letter will have zero effect.

I definitely know what taking advice from friends do, as sometimes while they come from a perspective of having your back, they are ultimately wrong because their experiences and personal thought processes and wishes is almost always projected in their advises, I have a psychology educational and career background, that's why I say this.

 

She's surrounding by friends and family whose experiences of marriage is non-existence, some of them have never been married, or been through shitty and abusive and ultimately relationship or divorced in the shortest amount of time. Longest one is in a divorce right now and cannot seem to be reliable in terms of advise because she's having to deal with being emotional stress and heart-broken. And most of which know the experiences and challenges faced in transnational relationship and marriage, either cultural and personally.

 

I'm not saying this about her friends to judge them or disrespect and disregard them, but the fact still is that with every union there comes its own challenges and there seems to be more when it has to do with two people with two different values in life, cultural understanding and beliefs working tirelessly to make it own.

 

Anyway, the major dilemma is like I said I know she has the form and she hasn't filed it, I know she's probably hoping to hear from USCIS soon about her letter and I know we still love ourselves so much. But, I don't know if to force her to file the divorce, I don't want to petition the divorce because if I say I love her and I really do, I shouldn't be the petitioner is what USCIS might hold against me as there is any abuse whatsoever.

Doesn't matter who files for divorce.
 
Taken from 8 CFR 16
 
" (2) Good Faith, Not at Fault .

Despite the best intentions, marriages do not always work out, and sometimes even bona fide marriages fall apart in less than 2 years. IMFA was not meant to be a tool to be used against unlucky or unlikely marriages; it was meant to be a tool against fraud. Accordingly, IMFA provides for a waiver if the alien can establish that he or she entered the marriage in good faith and he or she was not at fault in failing to meet the IMFA requirements. Things to consider when adjudicating this type of waiver include :

·     Weight is not given to who filed the divorce. (Initially, the statute required that the alien had to be the moving party in the proceedings to terminate the marriage (i.e., that the alien had terminated the marriage for “good cause”). This occasionally resulted in what became known as “the race to the courthouse.” Since the issue was meant to center on whether the alien had good faith when immigrating, not on whose attorney could file for divorce faster, this requirement was dropped.)"

USCIS doesn't care who did what during the divorce. They only care you provide proof it is final and can honestly answer questions about the divorce if asked. And what "form" are you referring to when you say your ex "has the form and she hasn't filed it"? If you are talking about her letter, then that's not an official form and she will hear nothing because her letter does nothing.

They really don’t care who files for the divorce. They will not hold it against you if you are the one to file for divorce.

 

You have already filed for removal of conditions so all you would do is at your interview tell them you wish to change to a divorce waiver and if the divorce certificate has been received give them a copy or if you have not received the divorce certificate yet they would tell you to send it once you do have it. So long as you have evidence you entered the marriage in good faith then you are all good.
