Divorce before removal of conditions

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am in a very difficult situation and any thoughts/suggestions will be very appreciated.

 

I was on an F1 visa. I got married in February 2018 and applied for Adjustment of status in May 2018. I was approved and granted a 2-year conditional green card in August of 2018.


We enjoyed a very good first year but things have turned sour lately. We are in constant arguing every single day and to be honest we both know getting a divorce will be the best option for both of us.

 

I believe we have enough evidence since the marriage was entered in good faith but I am worried what will become of my status.

 

Thanks!
Kojo

File with a Divorce Waiver, very common.

He will not need her help. It can be done alone with a divorce waiver. (You also don't have to wait to apply for ROC, you can do it as soon as you have the divorce decree.)

What do you mean? If she is going to file with a divorce waiver and she is already in possession of the evidence of a bona fide marriage, what help would he need from his ex?

Don't worry, it's fairly common. Lots of people get divorced. What important is you entered the marriage in good faith, which sounds like you did. So you can file for divorce. Keep all the evidence that you can. You are still a lawful permanent resident. After you have final divorce decree, you file ROC. You remain lawful permanent resident the whole time until they adjudicate the I-751.

Usually that is a different term for the same process.

You are good, this is very common. I am doing it myself.

 

One question because I am so curious, HOW DID YOU GET APPROVED in 3 months for 2 year? I'm just having a hard time understanding that. People wait 1.3years. Does it depend on what state you live in?

I think it depends your local office. If a local office receives a lot of applications wait times tend to be longer. Most people who filed through my local office get the conditional GC within 3 months.
