  • I 751 Interview Question

    I filed my I-751 application (I was married and then got divorced)from Florida, but then moved to San Francisco.I had hired a lawyer to help me there.

    Now my interview is coming up in 2 weeks, and my lawyer is asking big money to come to CA to go with me for interview.

    I was wondering if somebody can tell me
    Do I really need lawyer for I-751 interview to go with me? Will he be of any help(I mean will interviewer just ask me questions or Lawyer will get any chance as well)

    I just want to make sure if he is needed and will be helpful or not.

    Also, can you please tell me what kind of documents will be helpful to take with me.
    Most of bills etc. were on my partner's name, so I do not have lots of documents.

    Also, because of my moving here, I am not able to get any reference letters from friends, will this be a problem?

    Thank you so much for your help.

        Hello Westside and welcome to ILW

        I advise you to get a lawyer in California. this way you do not have to pay this lawyer for travel. Request that the florida lawyer send you copies of everything that was submitted with the 751 waiver that you filed. Quickly.

        Please tell us exactly what evidences were submitted with the waiver.

        It sounds like from your post that you have weak evidences.. this is not good. Waivers do not have a high rate of approval, especially with weak evidences.

        How long were you married? were there any children etc. ? What was the reason for the divorce.. was there a fault listed?

        There should not be any problem with you getting affadavits from friends in florida? what do you mean that you cant get the letters???

        Give us a timeline on the conditional card and some facts about why you dont have evidences

          I-751 waiver or not - the evidence that needs to be submited are the same...
          Interview is often requiered when there is either doubt and or barely no supporting evidence. People who file with waiver often don;t get an interview,if the evidence is overwhelming....

          People were called for an interview,who were still married...and givin a hard time afterwards as well.

          Why did U even hire an attorney,if I may ask?

          and yes having an attorney travel with you,can cost alot,especially in a rip off,over priced state like Cali.
          Good Luck

                I agree with 4now on getting the papers from your current lawyer and retaining one when you arrive in CA.

                As far as paperwork goes, take what you have. I'd also suggest that get some affidavits from friends and family members (of both yours and your exes) who knew you as a couple and can attest to the fact it was a good faith marriage.

                  take a letter from your current work showing for how long, the type of job and how much you make per year. Take the original taxes with the W2 if you have them. This information was very useful for my case showing how independent are you and that your able to take care of yourself without sponsors or help from the Government.

                  email i751help@gmail and you will received 2 samples of affidavit to support the application

                    Married for 9 months would not afford you access to more than 1 joint tax return! Do the joint bank statements cover the entire period of your marriage. No correspondence showing you lived together? No joint bills? Credit cards? What about drivers license? Auto insurance together.

                    I agree your evidence appears scant. I'd add the affidavits. It can't hurt.<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">Originally posted by westsiide:

                      Yes, I did include letters sent to me at the same address.
                      copies of bank statments
                      copy of auto insurance that we had together.
                      She added me to 4 of her credit cards as authorized user, but I do not have any statments now. I contacted respective banks and they said they cant send that to me, as I am not the account holder, how do I get this information?

                      I did not gather other docs(which could have been helpful), but now that we are not on talking terms are hard to get.

                      thank you.

                        My recommendation would be to start a civil dialog with her to see if she has copies of those statements. Otherwise you'd have to subpoena her for that information and that would just create more of a headache.

                          Hello West

                          You have some good evidences, but the biggest problem you have is the length of the marriage. Not even a year. Not good.

                          I strongly suggest that you take an attorney with you, otherwise you may be looking at a denial.

                          What was the reason for the divorce? You will be asked this question. Is it possible that your ex wife thinks you were in the marriage for a greencard? If so, is it possible that she wrote a letter to uscis indicating such? If she did, that will further complicate your case.

                            Where is your copy of the divorce paper? I am assuming it is a self petition based on divorce?

                            You have shown, in another post, what evidence you have submitted, which should prove you had a bonafied marriage, however, what was the reason for divorce. If it was not your fault, then you should be approved.

                            If there were issues in the divorce, then the lawyer would be adviseable.
