Hello,

 

Im very new to all this my wife did all this before we separated.

 

I need some basic help! my 2 year conditional GC expires 03/08/21 and i know i need to submit a I-751 as we are currently in the middle of a divorce.

 

When do i need to submit this form? is it still 90days before my expiring date? do i also have to send any other paperwork? or just the waiver ?

If the marriage has ended, then you don't have to wait until the 90 day window opens...you can file early with a waiver......you will receive an RFE requiring the final divorce decree.  You should be prepared to provide convincing evidence that you entered the marriage in good faith.

You can't submit the I-751 until your divorce is final unless you can prove you have been battered or abused. After the divorce you can file if you can prove an extreme hardship. The purpose of the 2 year conditional status is insure immigrants are immigrating for the right reason, not just get a green card.

I will submit it once its final, i dont have to prove "extreme hardship" i just have to prove the marriage was real (which it was). Please dont assume people situations with comments like " immigrants are immairating for the right reason, not just get a green card."

Thank you, I'm assuming that it would be better to have it all final if possible right? and then if it comes towards the end of my 2 year without it being complete i can go ahead and do it as stated above? what would be the latest i should submit?

The 

i-751 instructions disagree. Your link to a paid service says to consult an attorney and isn't dated.You can file

anything you want if you want to waste the money by ignoring instructions. Your statements aren't baised on USCIS State Department facts, mine are.

The OP can file early if ANY of those are the case......#2 applies to the OP:

You should re-read your own post.......If ANY of those conditions apply, the OP can file early.....#2 allows the OP to file early before the final decree.
