Greetings!

 

Does anyone have the experience of being approved for abuse waiver without an interview?

Does abuse waiver have a higher chance of being requested for an interview?

 

I am asking because I originally submitted with only Divorce waiver, and I got an RFE. I talked to immigration professionals, and I have been advised to add in abuse waiver - because they believe I am qualified for that, and that I should write a personal statement.

I don’t have police report or restraining order, so I don’t feel strongly about a abuse waiver.

 

Now, I am debating if adding in abuse waiver is necessary. It seems like I could be approved with divorce waiver after responding to the RFE.

So - 

Does abuse waiver EVER get approved WITHOUT an interview?

Does abuse waiver have more chances/ more cases of being interviewed?

 

What would you do if it was you?

 

Much appreciated!

Hi Guys,

 

I received my I-360 approval on July 28 and the letter said when a decision is reached on my I-485 AOS application, I would be notified. I am yet to receive the C31 EAD which I understand comes automatically after you case is approved. My current EAD/AP (Combo card) expires in January 2021. I am not sure when I will be scheduled for an interview or when I would receive my Green card and I really would like to travel. Since I have about 4 months left on my Combo card, I am thinking of travelling to my home country next month but  I am skeptical because of the current climate . Please advise. Thank you

Hey..you have everything you need! I360 approval letter, combo card..I mean you're free to travel as long as you adhere to the rules as it pertains to travel to your home country. I only hope you never filed asylum..or not in removal proceedings then you're good! I360 C31 EAD is mainly to allow you work when your VAWA is approved nothing else! Just don't overstay the validity of your travel document!👍😊
