  1. Hello all who divorced while i-751 was pending, I just wanted to write a little encouragement for all who need it. I filed the i-751 jointly with my then husband at the end of September of 2016. NOA was October 12, 2016. 9 months later my husband left me and a few months later our divorce was final with no green card in sight. I amended my i-751 and switched to a divorce waiver in October 2017. And yesterday, I was approved without an RFE or an interview. YAY. I understand what an uncertain and fearful time this is in our lives. As if getting a divorce wasn't bad enough. I can't offer too much information on the divorce waiver other than how I did it, but we can surely encourage each other through this journey. I noticed that there are quite a few people who are filing with a divorce waiver and thought to start this group to offer information and encouragement to each other. Zsuzsanna
  2. Any 2017 divorce waiver filers have approval yet? Let’s track status and current updates on the case . I filed a joint petition in Nov 2017 at CSC and in Nov 2018 I converted it to a divorce waiver. Haven’t got any updates on my case yet.
  3. I have been following VJ off and on in last 2 years. I filled my I 751 divorced waiver in Aug 2016, received NOA after 5 days and received fingerprinting appointment after approx. 2 months. I was unable to check my status online it didn't recognize my receipt number. I received a letter from local USCIS office on March 23rd for an interview. I had an interview on April 25th, 2018. My interview officer checked my documents asked some questions and at the end, he said I am going to approve your application. On May 1st, 2018 my status on USCIS website updated with "New card is Being Produced". On May 3rd it changed it to New office has Jurisdiction. I freaked out and called my lawyer and he called USCIS office and told me that your case is approved don't worry about online status as they transfer my case to national benefits center. I got a letter in the mail it says that congratulations! we approved your application and you will get your green card within 60 days. after that I also receive a letter that my case was to transferred to NBC. After 21 days of my interview, i received my green card in the mail. Tips to prepare I 751 divorce application write a very good letter and get a lawyer to help you in this process. I took screenshots of my text msgs between me and my ex-wife I also received RFE and I already submitted all evidence so I attached one more letter of support and sent all evidence again. Attached 11 letter of support as I didn't have a joint lease and joint insurance. Interview experience: IO was really good he asked me about all the pictures and wrote it down about the event and when we took this picture. He asked my about my bank statement and asked the reason why we decided to get divorced. My lawyer went with me for an interview. Most important point is true information if your case based on reality and facts then you should not be fear of anything. A good lawyer is very helpful. I just wanted to share my journey with you guys especially those who are waiting and good luck!
  4. Is there anyone who filed for ROC with a divorce waiver with bona-fide marriage ground? (Not extreme hardship or violence) Please help me get some ideas. I am the beneficiary and I got married to a US citizen about a year and half ago. I got my green card back in October 2018, so it has been only 2 months and half. Our marriage is bona-fide and we have lots of proofs. However, I found out that my spouse is cheating on me. I noticed something was strange with him, and I asked him what is wrong. He then told me he started seeing another girl, and doesn't want to be with me anymore. Since we got married and started living together, he has started seeing lots of differences in us, which caused fights. He was getting really sick of it, and then he met this girl. He said he is really into this girl and they are already thinking about getting an apartment together. Since he is crazy about her, he refuses to go to marriage counseling with me. He said, he is just done with me, and doesn't want any more drama. I am devastated because of the broken heart, his betrayal, but not just that. I have my life here (mainly my job). My employer hired me on the condition that they don't have to sponsor me for work visa, so if I lose my conditional green card, I will lose my job also. Since we have not been married for 2 years (it has been only 1.5 years) and it has been only a few months since I got my green card, I feel like filing a divorce now will make it look like I married him for the green card. I know we were truly in love when we got married and planned the future together, but it ended up not working out. He told me we don't have to file a divorce right away if it is going to look like a fake marriage, which it isn't. But he also said, he will still keep seeing this girl, and I shouldn't expect him to come back to me. I don't know what to do anymore. Every time I see him, it breaks my heart, and I really want to move on with my own life. But divorcing now will most likely look bad also, and I will lose my job and life here too. I am really stuck. Can anyone give me some advice on what I should do now? Do you think divorcing at this timing and filing for a divorce waiver will look very bad regardless of the bona-fide evidence? Is there anyone who went through a divorce within 2 years of marriage and still got their ROC approved with a divorce waiver? How long were you married before the divorce? Was there a big scrutiny?
  5. Hi everyone, filling out my I-751 divorce waiver and stumped on #13 (see attached). My divorce has started but will be finalized after the 90-day submission window ends so I'm not sure what to fill out in the Date of Divorce box. "Not final yet"? "Pending"? "TBD"? "Soon"? "Sometime in December"? Lol. Has anyone here been through this and know what to write? Google has been helpful thusfar, just stumped on this one thing. I know how particular they are. Thanks in advance for any input!
  6. Hello, I need some insights. Thank you in advance. My window for filing is closing on Oct. 20, 2018. We're going to get a divorce. But due to financial constraints filing the divorce is being pushed and pushed on a later date. On my estimate we might be able to file the divorce on November. What do you think should I do? 1. File jointly and once I have the divorce decree inform USCIS that I'm switching to divorce waiver? This is given that he would sign, we're not on talking terms. 2. File with a divorce waiver and put pending on the divorce decree and wait for an RFE? I'm worried about this due to the new uscis policy regarding denying an application that has incomplete papers. Instruction specifically states that the divorce decree should be attached when filing a divorce waiver. They had been considerate before but since they had released a new policy it made me worried. Any insight will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  7. Good afternoon everyone, I have a very important question since I am about to file my I-751 waiver. I have been thru a lot with my ex husband. unfortunately no serious evidences against him. Only my word and couple picture of the damage he had done. Injuries, etc. I also do not have everything because I left and literally never looked back, dont talk to him since the divorce, nor his family. If I file a divorce waiver how do I mention abuse in it?? write a statement? because I feel like I should explain why i have missing evidences, and that i have photos of abuse but did not feel that they are enough according to their list of evidences on USCIS website, so that is why im only filing the divorce waiver. ?! something like that? or just go check both boxes? PLease help!! God Bless everyone

  9. Hi everyone! Did anyone try to convert their pending Removal of Conditions case into Divorce Waiver? Squeeze of the story: We submitted joint petition back in 2016, then in 2017 we decided to divorce and now I have my final divorce decree on hands while I-751 case is still pending. I found an official Memo which covers this situation and says that it is possible to convert one case into another without the need of reapplying Now I am gathering information on that subject and specifically I am interested if anyone could provide a Cover Latter sample for that case? Thank you!

  11. Hi everyone, I have been reading on VJ for a long time and now I decided to write here so I can get some help, some opinions, anything. I met my ex husband in 2014 , fell in love , started the K1 processs and got married in 2015. things went downhill horribly. he had anger issues, he was dealing with addiction and he became verbally and phisically abusive. never in a million years I thought he would ever become the man he had become. his family knew about what was going on they tried to send him to get help with his issues but since it was a deeply religious family everything got sugarcoated and put under the rug. i had no one, i thought i had his familys support but they teamed up and started accusing me as im only hear for green card purposes. which is horrible to say since everyone knew what was going and behind closed doors, how horribly everything was. i was brainwashed i was told i will end up in jail and deported if i calll the cops and i did not know about any option for me back then,,, i long story short the leader of the church helped me escape and i was staying at friends in anothr state since i had no money to go home at that point. i filed for divorce and less than a year from that point our divorce was finalized. now i am close to the deadline, the 90 day window. I have to file the I 751 but i am facing many difficulties here. i am out of the country right know. visiting my family. first of alll I dont know if I should file I 751 as the marriage was entered in good faith but ended with divoce or file as I was abused. I am honestly scared, I havent had any communication with my ex and i am terrified what if i telll uscis about abuse and he will know about it and as he always told me he will get me in trouble since he has money he willl not ever get in trouble but me. I have pictures of us together, bunch of emails, unfortunately when i left him i had to disappear because i didnt want him to find me so i ended good friendships with mutual friends because of him. so they only know his story as oh i just ran off... which is totally false. and where i lived with friends i had some arguements with one person there and she told me oh she will contach my ex husband they will report me and get me deported.. things she d say out of anger but im not sure if it happened. i have plenty of pictures of th abuse, video recordings of him.. basically admitting he hurt me and hes sorry etc. I thought abouut staying home and abandoning my green card but i have ambitions and i dont want to be destroyed by someone so evil meanwhile he is living his life all happy. also i am sure he filed taxes i just dont know if he filed married joinlty or seperately but i didnt sign any documents ... i myself didnt file since i wasnt working. this years gonna be the first year im going to file since i worked last year but i was divorced by then. so yea the evidences i have: -pictures, emails from the beginning of the relationship up until i escaped (some real nasty email from him after i left him as well) -I can go to the bank ask for bank statements ( we had a joint bank account, he was the primary card holder and i had my own card but he had access to it ) - i can go to irs ask for tax copies or see how he filed - my personal statement I know its not much and i am very devistated i wasnt more cautious before. i never thpught we d end up the way we are with him so it was a horrible time of my life. I am looking for the time i can get back on my feet and this chapter wuld be the fnal chapter so i can leave the past behind me. also i am dealing with health issued and i got fired due to taking too much time off so now im unemployed im hoping to have a I 751 fee waiver approvd. i will attach bank statements , charity care approval form and a written explanation that im going thru financial hardship. what do you guys think about my story? hopefully there is some ppl out there who is going or went thru the same . also the personal statements have to be handwritten or typed in on a computer? thank you so much for any replies in advance.

  13. I first came to US with the sponsorship from my Stepmom, my father was in Nepal and is still in Nepal. I have stayed in the US for 3 years now. I came to the US when i was 12. I was staying with a conditional green card of 2 years. Last year i filed for a i-751 and i got a i-551 stamp. Now USCIS is asking for a evidences of good faith marriage, but my Stepmom filed for a divorce after filing for i-751 because she wanted to live in US but my dad wanted to live in Nepal. I didn't know that. I just found that out. As my Stepmom filed for a divorce and my father is in Nepal, I live with my aunt in US. My stepmom did not provide the evidences that USCIS is asking for because my dad and stepmom are divorced. How do I continue my process and what are the options to get a new green card? Do I have any options to get a new green card as a permanent resident as a under aged child? Can anyone please help me? You can also contact me in my email- crazyday034@gmail.com
