  1. Going through a divorce right now but still under my conditional green card which is expiring Nov 2022. What steps should I be taking in terms of the GC?
  2. I finally got a response form an attorney in Manila. They are quoting me the following: "Our fee starts at 150k pesos , at 5 payments of 30k upon signing of a contract then monthly until the150k is fully paid, plus appearance fees of 8k pesos per appearance, plus expenses ( filing fees, court fees,). Only 30k would be needed to start the process. Let us know if there are other concerns, or if you are ready at this time to review a contract for the handling of the case." This seems rather expensive for Philippines??? Does anyone have any suggestions for other attorneys? The one year timeline they give is that realistic, or is it likely to take longer? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Mahalo, David O
  3. Okay I have one question. I was married to a Filipina in 2012 in the Philippines. (That was my first mistake) I brought her to USA, she became US Citizen and all that. Last year she came home one day "After visiting a friend" and said it was over, there was no hope for us, she would not participate in counseling, church, etc to try to save our marriage. She left. So now we are divorced in the US and every other country in the world except for the Philippines. Does anyone have any information how I can get the Philippines to recognize my divorce. Any suggestions of an attorney in Manila? Estimates of cost and time frame? Any help will be greatly appreciated, Mahalo, David Olsten
  4. Has anyone gotten divorced from their partner after becoming a permanent resident? This morning, I discovered my husband emotionally cheating with over 100 people on Tinder and other social sites. I confronted him about it and he does not want to go forward with reconciliation, just a divorce. We have two young children here in Washington State. I am not working (youngest just turned 1 year) and not sure what to do at this point. Ideally, I would like to bring them with me back to Canada. If I do this, my permanent residency will be abandoned. Does anyone suggest becoming a US citizen first and then doing so or just returning back to their own country? What else should I consider? Thank you
  5. I got my 10 yr green card a few months ago through marriage. I met my spouse almost 8 years ago, and after being in a relationship for 4 yesrs or so, we got married. I got a conditional green card, but I got the condition removed and got my 10 year green card. My marriage has been rough since a few months before I got my condition removed, and now I really can't stand it anymore. 1) I now have the 10yr green card, but does a divorce afffect my immigration status in any way? My attorney told me that if the divorce has to happen, make sure it is not due to mu fault, but should be my spouse's. For example, even though I have the 10 yr GC, if I am the one who got violent, or even cheated on my spouse, and that was the cause of the divorce, it would look bad. My attorney said the divorce should be due to my spouse's, but I dont even think this is true. Can anyone clarify? No one in our marriage has cheated, but I want a divorce asap. 2) It has only been a few months since I got my 10yr green card. Would it be bad if I divorce too soon? 3) If one day I want a citizenship after 5 years from now, would my divorce become an issue?
  6. Hello, I am writing for a friend and I'm not sure where to place this topic or if there's any other topic that talks about this specific issue so please feel free to transfer this to somewhere else. My friend really needs help right now. She applied for naturalization in 2020 and had her interview last June 1 2021. However the officer did not approve nor deny her application. Please see attached detailed file. Is she in danger of deportation? She is now married to another person but according to her, when she got interviewed for the removal of conditions in 2013, she was already pregnant with her first child to her 2nd husband, who she only married 2 years ago. She came here through K1 visa, got her conditional GC in 2010, applied for removal of conditions in 2012, got interviewed for removal of conditions in 2013. I dont know when they got divorced but i think she mentioned after 3 years of marriage so i think in 2013 also? Im not sure. So, will she get deported guys? What can she do on her end if she is unable to give what uscis has asked of her (evidence of marital union from 2010-2013)? Thank you for your time.
  7. Greeting everybody, I hope everybody is doing well! I want to share what’s going on in my life at the moment and see if I could get any help from the community. I’ve been married for about 2 years but we are no longer partners but we still living in the same place but in separate rooms, I’ve been a Green Card Holder for about 8 months, and this whole situation has always been hell since we got engaged, my partner has always been aggressive verbally and physically towards me and on top of that, she starting doing drugs (cocaine) and I’m concerned that could get me in trouble. Since I stopped letting her do whatever with me, she has been threatening me, saying she will deport me or cut herself (Which has happened 3 times) if I don’t do what she wants/needs! There is a good amount of people who have witnessed some of her actions and also messages of her being verbally aggressive towards me. My question is what kinda lawyer should I be looking at this point? And also how would that affect my ROC process?
  8. Hello. I have pending asylum case and haven't renewed my EAD for 1.5 years. I married to UC 1 year ago, and we submitted our AOS documents 6 month ago. We're getting divorced now before first interview and my EAD is still processing. If it gets here before divorce process is finished - what happens next? Do they void it on their end so employers know that its voided or is it valid for 2 years? I'm just not sure what to do, as I could either apply now for new EAD under my asylum category, or wait for that AOS ead and use it for 2 years if its legal.. Thank you!
  9. Don't know where to begin. Had an interview in Houston, IO started asking about my ex spouse and also current spouse. I applied based on 5 years but still was questioned about my ex spouse. I saw a huge stack of I-751 files in her desk, she went through it. She asked my current marriage date and previous divorce date. At the end, She told me she will have to review my file. I came home very stressed since I waited 15 months for this. When I check online, it says as below. It says quality review, God knows what that means. Please provide any experience you guys had, I'm feeling really down. May 6, 2021 Oath Ceremony Will Be Scheduled May 6, 2021 We recommended that your Form N-400, Application for Naturalization, be approved. Your case was submitted for quality review.
  10. Hello everyone, I hope some of you in the same situation can give me some advices. Here is my story and I will try to make it short lol 😁 I came here with a student visa and I got married in June 2018 with an American citizen. Everything was perfect and we got along so well and I thought I was gonna have kids with him etc. Sadly after we got married things started to change and we would spent most of our time arguing. My ex husband neglected me and had more than one affair. he confessed that he was cheating on me for six months but that he was willing to change and that I should give him another chance. So I did. Unfortunately things did not change much and on July 2020 we finally decide to file for divorce. My divorce is now finalized and I am looking into hiring an attorney to file a waiver of the jointly I751. Who had or is going through a similar experience? Do you think I should mention that he cheated on me? How should I write my explanation letter? Which evidence should I submit? I have some affidavit letters from my ex husband, my ex mom in law, my ex sister in law and two of my friends who knew both of us. Bank statements, health and life insurance, pictures, AAA card, Costco card, auto insurance, contract letter and other things we did together and bought together. text messages with him and his family. Also, I am planning to travel out of the country. Should I get a passport stamp other than my extension letter? How long does the whole process take? How are the odds to succeed since we were only married for 2 years and with no children? (he didn't want any that was another reason why we argue) Oh also I forgot to mention than when things started to fall apart I started to see a psychologist as I felt lonely and betrayed, should I show those reports or not? Thank you so much in advance and I hope I can help someone else along the way.
  11. Hi! I will have my N-400 interview on April 8 2021 based on 5 years residency rule. I divorced with my ex on Feb 2019 after 4 years of marriage ( 6 months after getting 10 years GC). The interview letter only requires me to bring: GC, passport, selective service registration and divorce certificate. I know the OI may ask some questions about my previous marriage. Should I bring some documents just in case they ask for those: + old health insurance/ old car insurance/ old car registration with both name + ask bank for old statements (since we close the bank account 3 years ago) + tax returns ( 2018-2020 for single filing and 2016-2017 for Married Filing Jointly) Whoever had the same situation, please share your experience! Thank you so much
  12. Hello everyone, I am a USC. I'm preparing the i129F packet for my Fiance and I have some questions for those who've been in a similar situation of being a previous petitioner. In 2014 I got married overseas in Egypt and petitioned for my ex, he was approved for a CR1 visa. After a 15 month process my then-husband flew here the following year in July 2015 and we stayed with some of my family where I was currently living. Everything started off great until issues between he and my family started. Then he wanted us to move out on our own so he started looking for a job, met with managers but never got call backs. He arranged to go stay with a mutual close friend out of state because he claimed he was feeling uncomfortable living with my family. He also wanted to try getting work out of state there. I was very upset about the change in plans, it was not what I was expecting at all. This created a lot of issues between us. Within a few months of his arrival that happened and he was staying out of state. I later flew and stayed for a month with him and for the most part it was horrible for me, lots of fighting and not getting along. I returned home after and separated (informally), which he did not like. When we did talk it was still more fighting and then a week or 2 of no talking. After a month and a half to 2 months I tried to reconcile and I sent him a box of marriage therapy type books I had been reading, treats, amazon gift cards etc for him and some things for our friends family he was staying with. He is the type to hold a grudge about everything and didnt reciprocate trying to reconcile. After going through depression, I felt fed up and filed divorce a few months later the following year. Shortly after I filed he contacted me apologizing and wanting to reconcile and mentioned that he was considering coming back home. I paid for a 1 year family pass for the zoo (I have 2 kids from a previous Relationship) to have something to do together. I even added him as an authorized user to my credit card in attempt help him start building his own credit. After a few months he ended up not coming back, instead he suggested I and my kids move there with him, which I didnt feel it was right removing my kids from their life and family here. Then he suggested I move there with him and leave my kids here and i could visit them periodically, that I wouldn't have to work and he would take care of it all. I was definitely not about to leave my kids behind and move away just because he decided he wanted to stay living in another state. I knew that my state gives a 6 month period before divorce finalizes incase the couple reconciles and decides to cancel it. I let the divorce process continue without cancelling and I'm glad I did. Clearly it was not working out and we couldn't even agree on what state to live in. We divorced based on irreconcilable differences and it was finalized Dec 2016. He had to file a divorce waiver and remove conditions by himself and go the rest of the way without me. Fast forward, he attended his interviews, did his biometrics, gave them everything they wanted to know and was granted US Citizenship in the end. Now about my Fiance. We knew of eachother through a mutual female friend on fb 7 years ago but he and I never had contact back then. Over a year later He messaged me saying happy new year and gave advice about staying happy in marriage and sent a link but I never responded. I was married at the time and it wasn't my thing to talk to men even though he wasn't showing interest or trying to flirt or come on to me in any way. During my separation from my husband I contacted this man asking for help with translating some things. He happens to also be from the same country as my ex husband. So he finally responds back over a month later because apparently he was away in the military. We talk a little and he wants to block because he doesnt want to cause problems in my marriage. He had no idea that problems already were there and I was separated. It wasn't an issue any longer to me talking and being acquaintances. I let him know the current circumstances and then we didnt talk again for several days. We ended up excepting eachother as friends on fb several days later. While me and my ex were having problems and were separated, me and my now fiance were becoming friends. We became close, I considered him a best friend to me and he was there for me to vent a lot about the problems in my marriage. At the same time we started becoming attracted to one another and did like eachother but i didnt consider us as being officially dating or in a relationship. After my divorce became finalized I tried to move on with my life and went on to pursue a long distance relationship with my now fiance. But it wasn't entirely easy for me having been down this road of long distance relationship before and this whole process. I still had some fears of another relationship failing especially during that year after my divorce. I felt like all my heart, emotions, effort, time, etc. I put into my marriage and that whole process was for nothing in the end and it left me shattered inside. I feared this type of let down happening allover again. But I continued on having this new, long distance relationship. Several times we planned to meet in person but due to our work schedules and circumstances it became delayed. At the same time I felt like I needed this delay to fully heal and be whole again. In Nov 2020 we broke up for a short period without talking, due to other things. Mostly he felt the distance was becoming too much and felt that I was often purposely delaying our relationship even more from going foreward to the next step. Though he was trying to be patient through it all with me, we have had ups and downs over the last 3 years. Many times we talked about a future together and for the most part we get along great together and see eye to eye with many things in common. I also knew inside that I didnt want to pass him by and live with regrets later in life of what if. I arranged with work and got approval for vacation and flew to where he resides for work in Bahrain. This turned out being the best decision I could have made. We had an amazing time together. During that period we flew to kuwait to spend time with some of his family and I loved it. I took them each gifts and in turn they took me out and wanted to shop for me, my kids and my mom. They took me to dinner..it was really nice and they were so welcoming. After flying back to Bahrain I had one week left before returning home to the US. We talked about engagement before going to see his family and wanted to have it with them there and wanted to find rings in Kuwait but our trip was shortened due to missing a flight and having to schedule a later one and pay all over again, plus his work schedule.. he couldn't take more than just a few days off. So after returning to Bahrain, we shopped and purchased our engagement rings and became engaged Feb 28, 2020. Since then the pandemic picked up more and I havent been able to make another trip. I also work in a covid facility so it's been pretty hectic this past year and with my kids and my dad also getting covid and having to care for them too through it. Thank the Lord I have not had the virus yet. We have made some arrangements and discussed the details of our wedding and I know time is ticking and I need to file this now as it has to be within 2 years of meeting. I know that there are some red flags being I was married before and previously filed a CR1. Both are from the same country of Birth and Starting a relationship just after my divorce. I'm hoping for the best and just want to know if others have filed k1 after marriage and divorce, how did it go? I'm wondering if I will have to prove at some point the bonafides of my previous marriage. It's been just over 7 years since I had gotten married and just over 4 years being divorced. I've moved a few times and dont have much proof of anything left as he took whatever there was with him. Should I expect them to ask for some letter from my ex husband? Any thoughts or advice is appreciated.
  13. Hi I received my permanent GC a few years back under abuse waiver and citizenship in 2018 based on the same. Finally, my spouse has agreed for mutual consent divorce in India (as contested case was going on there for several years). Can someone pls guide me if there is anything the spouse can do after divorce completion to jeopardize my citizenship? P.S.: Indian divorce papers have a clause in there that neither parties can file any civil/criminal case against each other after the divorce is granted. We both live in USA. Will it hold good for USA as well? Thank you so much for your inputs. God bless you.
  14. Is it true that you can not file for any immigrant for 10 years if you divorce a US citizen, who you were married to during naturalization (applied with 3 years rule)?

  17. Hello, I wasn't sure which preset title to select so I selected this one. I'm in the process of filing for divorce. My husband and I have been married 2 years since october. He's only been in the usa since Feb 2020 so 9 months. Do I need to report the divorce to uscis? Can and how do I request to remove my sponsorship? Will he be deported?
  18. Hiii everyone. Pending decisions after an interview is so stressful so I thought why not post here and share this with you guys. So I have recently interviewed (12 days ago) for i751 divorce waiver based on good faith marriage. My lawyer was present via telephone and we added Abuse (mental cruelty) + hardship waiver while I was there. My interview experience was alright but my lawyer told me ‘I gave A LOT of info’ as I went into the detail of why it ended. My emotions do overtake me when I explain that as it was an extremely hard time for me. The office heard me out and just asked basic questions for verification purposes and said how they will mail me or my lawyer if they need anything from me and will get back to us in 1-2 weeks as they need to review the case. I read an expert mention here to a post how adding a ‘hardship’ waiver can be problematic. My attorney is good so I would like to think they know what they’re doing. Anybody here have any idea how long they take to respond after an interview? Also does anyone know what’s going on with their online and automated phone response as it’s stuck on ‘my case is ready to be scheduled for an interview’ even though I have completed the interview.
  19. Hey everyone, I want to thank you all for the great advice all throughout the years. Much appreciated! My timeline is: - Dec 2016 I751 submitted (pending security checks) - Divorced Sept 2019 - Jan 2020 N-400 submitted 5 Year rule - Nov 19 Citizenship interview became combo (they never got my divorce waiver papers, my lawyer had proof) - Nov 20th 751 approved, oath scheduled. At my lawyers advice I applied for the N-400 and that pushed them to adjudicate my 751 that was pending for 4 years. I believe I would still be waiting today. Hang in there, there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. 🙌♥️
  20. Hi folks- I filed my ROC with divorce waiver back in April 2018. I got my extension letter around July 2018 for 1 year and then got another one with 18 months extension in August 2018. I never got any letter for Biometrics or never heard any update on my application. Last year June (2019) I got a letter saying case was transferred to another office for jurisdiction. That's it. Nothing after that and online case status still says same: **We transferred your case to..... ** . Should I be worried about the case now? By the way- I got one year more extension on passport in March 2020. Did any filer here from similar timeframe hear anything about the case or decision?
  21. Hello Today my wife had her CR-1 Interview in Islamabad, Pakistan. They gave her 221G ( See attached Image ) form asking to upload Petitioner and Beneficiary previous marriage photographs my wife told the CO /interpreter that we don't have photos of our previous marriage she told her that is your problem and walked away . I was able to find 2 pictures of me with my ex. But my wife she can't find any pictures of herself with her ex or other family members from her previous wedding day. What should we do ? Upload what we have? They kept her Passport original marriage certificates and previous marriage termination documents for both wedding photos and NADRA FRC Any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated
  22. We both want the divorce and we are ready to file the papers soon. I already left the country and I don't want to go back to the US so do we have to notify the USCIS? I don't want the green card anyways.
  23. I just applied for N400/Naturalization based on my 5 yr residency. Eventhough I am still married to my husband who petitioned me to come here in the USA with K1 visa. My question is, if i file for a divorce will it affect my Naturalization application? Here is a lil summary of my life here n the US. Please don't judge me, I love my husband with all my heart. I gave up my life, left my parents , carrier and everything back home 5 yrs ago to be with him here. But ever since i moved to the US ,things changed. the physical abuse started. I had to call the authorities 2x on him and the 2nd one from about 4 yrs ago was bad. He went to jail due to domestic violence, Since we have a child together i decided to forgive him went on marital counselling etc. The physical abuse did not happen again but mental abuse continued.The fear of him hurting me when we have disagreement is still there, to the point i will sleep in the couch just to avoid conflict. To the point that he would make me question my self, doubt about my self, and lost my self confidence. A yr ago he quit his job less than a yr after we bought our house, He stayed home while i work 5 days a week and would do some sideline business during the weekend and days off by cooking and baking to support the bills and the family, until covid hit. I had no choice but to apply for medicaid and food stamps , bec we have mortgage to pay, i started using my credit cards just go be able to keep our house to have a place to live. The benefit that i received was for my husband and children. I was not qualified because when i applied back then I don't have my 5 yr residency yet. About few months ago he decided to enroll himself into college to get a certificate , he never told me anything about it that he was serious about going back to school, i begged him not to because financially we are not ready. But he did it anyway. I was shocked and i told him honestly that it was unfair.(Don't get me wrong. I truly believe education is great , but i wished he have told me and communicated it well with me) He continued and told me that school is good and that it is not a big deal that he went back to school without telling me. I took it, i took it hard and still i kept on going. The pain is there, and i honestly told him I could not accept what happened but i still love him. Which hurts the most . He said he would be done by spring 2021. Until he then decided he will keep on going to get an Associates degree and eventually Bachelors degree. I was shocked again. It truly shows the lack of communication. Which is our main issue, he is the type that would walk out if i start talking to him about our marriage. SO now i finally have my last stretch and last drip of patience with this. My question to you fellow VJ, since the fear of him hurting me again since don;t get along should I leave and file for a divorce? IS my N400 application compromised and can possible get denied because I also applied for food stamps and medicaid for my family. I am the applicant but my kids and husband are the one receiving benefits. Should I give my husband another chance? Every time i give him a chance he will never talk about what happened, he does not ask for an apology. He would just say i am being irrelevant, or we were stress about some things. Thank you
  24. Hi everyone, I created my first post on VJ and I am in need of advice for my case! I came to the U.S as an F-1 student in March 2016 and received my green card as a family-based (through marriage with U.S Citizen) in July 2019. We met on Facebook around the end of 2018 and got married around March 2019. We then filed for the 2 years green card in April 2020 and got approved 3 months after, in July 2020. I was living with him in Eastern Washington the whole time and our marriage was entered as faithful and as happy as it could be, up until the end of 2019. We have an age gap for 13 years (he is 34 and I am 21), which is the reason why most of our thoughts are not alike. I am primarily focused on my career while he wanted to have children, which I am totally fine with, but I was not 100% supporting the idea at that time. We had fights about that and we made up with each other, but we were not as happy as we were before. At the end of 2019, he got into a DUI, resulting in a huge financial hardship from his lawyer and insurance. I was making minimum wage at that time, while he was earning around $50,000/year. We kept fighting over financial issues and things got worse. In February 2020, I got fired from my job in Easter Washington and could not find any other job due to my career field. I received an offer from Seattle and decided to move to Seattle for that position, along with going back to school in Seattle as well. We have been physically separated since February 2020 and rarely visited each other due to the Covid-19 situation. He is still extremely supportive of me and we still respect and support each other, however, I do not think we would be able to stay married. Our marriage was real and as truthful as it could be, things unfortunately could not be fixed in terms of love and feelings. We do have a ton of evidence together, including: Over 70 pictures A lot of text messages Finance: Joint tax return of 2019 and 2020 Bank statements from 06/2019 - present Credit Card together 401k (He’s on my 401k and I am on his 401k) Insurance: Health insurance (I am on his health insurance and he is on my health insurance) Car Insurance (I am on his car insurance) Bills: Utility bills together Phone bills Mail to the same address Affidavit from him Affidavit from his dad Misc: Travel tickets together Airbnb receipt together His text with my mom Emergency Contact Amazon Subscription together I am wondering if my case, if filed as I-751 with a waiver based on faithful marriage - would that be a strong case? Thank you so much in advance for your help!
  25. Hello all, I hope some more experienced forum-users could guide me a bit on how to proceed.. My conditional green card (based on marriage to a US Citizen) was issued last year in May and my ROC window opens in February next year. We have been married for not even 2 years (1 year and 10 months). My husband and I started having problems end of last year, he got a verbally abusive once. I initiated we go to marriage counseling, which he agreed to. After a few sessions he broke up with me and cancelled our counseling. I still hoped that once I move out of the house and we get a physical break, we could maybe fix us down the road. But my hope is pretty much gone and at this point also my desire for it. I have been trying and trying and he just completely changed and became unpredictable. He even acknowledged that he is not the same man I married anymore. It is very unfortunate and I still cannot comprehend or fathom what happened with us. We are still living in the same house but I am moving out soon. So I will have to notify USCIS about my change of address. I have mentioned to my husband that we should look into getting divorced to which he has not really replied. I suspect he considers tax and health benefits or simply does not want to think about it now...even though it was him who pretty much stopped fighting for us. I am aware of the big red flag it will raise when applying for the ROC with the divorce waiver (rather than jointly) but it seems to me is better to get divorced now...? USCIS will likely wonder why we are staying married if we don't even live together and our relationship has been terminated. Even if my husband joins me for the interview and confirms the good faith we both had in our marriage. My questions are: 1: In addition to the change of address should I also notify USCIS of the change (=end) in our marital relationship? 2: Is it better to get divorced now and file with a divorce waiver? 3: Does it make any difference who files for the divorce (my husband or me)? As in, will USCIS look at it differently (unfavorably) if I, the alien, divorce the US Citizen? Thanks for any helpful insights
