I-751 with waiver. Spoke with immigration attorney

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts



I spoke with my immigration attorney today about my case for I-751 with divorce waiver. However, he said we only need to send documents for Bona Fide marriage dated AFTER you got your conditional GC. Is that true? I always believed you had to send in the whole thing, from beginning to end. I told that to my attorney and he said no...


for example:

got married January 2016

i485 interview May 2017

file i751 with documents dated after may 2017

Sorry but your lawyer sounds like an idiot for giving you such a wrong advise. They want to see evidence from the beginning of the marriage.

From USCIS i-751 Instructions/Initial Evidence Check List:


Evidence of the relationship

  • Submit copies of documents indicating that the marriage upon which you were granted status was entered in good faith and was not for the purpose of circumventing immigration laws. Submit copies of as many documents as you can to establish this fact, to demonstrate the circumstances of the relationship from the date of the marriage to the present date. 


My advise: Get rid of that lawyer.
