From Filing Jointly to Divorce Waiver

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I hope all of you are doing alright during these uncertain and unsettling times. With USCIS re-opening (let's see if that is going to happen with what is happening now), I wanted to prepare myself for possible court date for the divorce and then the changing of my I-751 application from joint to divorce.

 

We filed jointly in September 2019 and things afterwards just spiraled down and due to irreconcilable differences, I filed for divorce. Now I am planning to get a lawyer for this process but my question is do I need to provide evidence for the entire duration of the marriage even though I sent that with the I-751 form back in September?

 

Thank you for the help.

I sent additional evidence only (from the moment I filed i751 till divorce), however I got divorced 3 years after filing the joint petition. I also sent the waiver package as an amendment, pretty much claiming that it’s their fault that they can’t make a decision for so long, thus ensuring that the previous evidence is not lost and saving an additional filing fee from the waiver.

Thank you. I will send whatever evidence I have from the start of the marriage just in case along with the waiver.
