  1. Hey all, I'm about to file ROC on my conditional Green Card that was based on Marriage, though I filed for divorce this year and plan on utilizing the divorce waiver to file alone. The marriage fell apart due to my citizen-spouse's substance use and mental/emotional/physical abusive behavior toward me; I had to utilize the services of a local domestic abuse non-profit to leave the situation, move out, seek extensive counseling, and file the divorce. I'm choosing the divorce waiver route due to a lack of physical evidence of abuse for VAWA, and because I successfully reached a judgement in the divorce case this month. Question is: I've read that the grounds of the separation must make it clear that the breakup wasn't the fault of the immigrant, otherwise they could face rejection; am I at fault for being the petitioner in the divorce? Should I be concerned about my application for ROC being rejected simply because I'm no longer married to the citizen spouse, or because I initiated the divorce? •••••• I have every piece of evidence in hand I could possibly acquire highlighting that we had co-mingled our finances, shared a life, and were married in good faith to be with one another. My Ex continues to work toward sobriety and seems to want to reconcile somewhere down the line if he can get himself back in shape. These kinds of changes take a lot of time, and the recovery from abuse is an exceptionally delicate subject; reform is unlikely, but possible. I really don't want to be forced to leave the country when it may be that he and I could reconcile at a healthier point in the future. All of the work we put in to be together, and the subsequent separation, are heart-breaking -- and it's a really challenging emotional space to be in while also having to file for ROC! Thanks for any and all help and advice. Xx
  2. I'm filing to Remove Conditions on my Green Card, and planning on using the Divorce Waiver but I seem to be in a grey area as it pertains to filling out the I-751. The divorce is final on August 21st. My Green Card expires on Sept 9th. I want to have my ROC package in the mail by August 1st to make sure there's enough time before my Green Card expires for it to arrive and enter the system - I desperately do not want to accidentally be out of status because of a mailing issue. I have a judgement in hand stating that the divorce will be final on the above date; I live in California where there is a 6 month processing period for a divorce to be official from date of filing even if a judgement is reached before the 6 month wait is up. The I-785 seems to only have 2 options - file jointly as married, or file alone as divorced. Technically I'm still legally married until August 21st, though I'm filing alone due to divorce and have that judgement. In a divorce waiver case am I able to select "Divorced" as my marital status if I have the divorce judgement? It seems conflicting to select "Married" as present marital status, and then in the waiver section select "My marriage was entered in good faith, but the marriage was terminated through divorce." Thank you!
  3. Hey! Looks like your N-400 must have been approved since so much time has elapsed after asking this question -- what did you end up doing about your nickname situation, and did you have any trouble?
