Hi Everyone, I am posting a summary of my journey, specifically of why I received "Notice of Intent to Deny"  Even tho I was a VAWA applicant. 

1- My entry status: F1 Visa, Married to us citizen, it was his idea to bring me here first as an international student and switch the status. 

2- During the 2 years of marriage I was abused by my EX and he was threatening me to cancel the green card application all the time. 

3- My initial I-485 based on marriage was denied because I was accused of "Willful Misrepresentation" as I didn't attend the school, My Ex didn't let me go to school. 

4- I left my Ex and filed a divorce and learned about VAWA. I had strong evidence including police reports.

5- I received RFE because of the same reason ( Misrepresentation)  my lawyer sent more evidence and explained the circumstances of why I didn't attend school.

6- Within 1.5 years my VAWA was approved. Got my EAD and my lawyer filled I-485.

7- Withing 1 year I received a notice for an interview.  I attended the interview with my attorney, they couldn't find the jurisdiction letter in order to make a decision, the officer said they will try to find it. 

8- My lawyer filled FOIA. 

9- After 9 Months, we received a favorable FOIA report and my lawyer submitted it to the officer. 

10- After 6 month, Jan 2019 I received "NOID" because of the same reason "Fraud-  Willful Misrepresentation"  at this point, I was certain that the application will get denied and they will ask me to refile again with a waiver. 

11-  Feb 28, My attorney responded the letter and explained the circumstances again, we submitted evidence that I had good intention to attend school but it wasn't up to me, my ex was controlling everything. We also submitted evidence that I attended a different school and other evidence to show I am in the process of attending grad school,  I tried to submit everything that could possibly prove that I had good intention to attend school here int he U.S. 

12- March 23, My I-485  was approved. 

13- March 29, My Green Card arrived in the mail!!

 

 

 

 

Congratulations and good luck with the rest of your journey.
