Dear all,

This forum has been so incredibly helpful -- thank you all in advance for your input. Could you read my cover letter for i-751 with a divorce waiver and tell me if that looks good or if I should include other info. I assumed I don't have to include any passport/birth certificate info, as it was already submitted for my conditional green card.

I would add "on the basis of a divorce waiver" right below this, because that point is somewhat buried in your opening paragraph.

 

No need to go too overboard with affidavits/letters from friends, or with texts/e-mails/photos.  Your chief evidence looks pretty substantial.

I'd call it "regarding this application to remove conditions" or simply put a period after "questions."

 

Good letter, good evidence.  Good luck!

Quick question! Do you think it would be helpful to mark with a yellow marker the dates and our names on the copies of phone bills and medical bills?

Often divorce waiver petitioners include a statement of the relationship. What you have posted is simply a basic cover letter outlining what is in the packet but nothing explaining how the evidence supports a bonafide marriage. Do you understand what Im saying?

In my cover letter, I wrote that there is a personal statement about the relationship, which is a letter I will write about the stages up to the marriage, stating it was real and explaining what went wrong and why things fell apart.
