  • I 751 denial.

    Hi,

    My office buddy just had his I 751 divorce waiver application denied after an interview. And is now placed in removal proceedings. Any recommendations about reputed lawyers in Florida State who can handle this type of issue?

    Thanks in advance.

      It seems like he won't be your "office buddy" for much longer.

        Hello siteilw and welcome to the forum.

        Do you know what the reason was for the denial? Do you know how long the marriage was?

        It is possible your coworker may have an avenue to either have the petition reopened? It just depends on the facts and circumstances.

        NOTE: Please ignore Sundevil or others who will probably berate you on the situation of your coworker.

          thanks hudson,

          We just got out from our lunch break together.
          From what I was told the denial was because he could not prove that the marriage was bonafide, he was married for 1 year 4 months during which they had differences, and had been for marriage counseling. His ex wrote a nasty letter to immigration for which he was questioned at the interview.
          One thing is for sure, he does need an expert at immigration court. Lets see, we are going to shop around.
          I hate to see this nice tan hard haired handsome bloke leave, I'd marry him but I'm 40 and hes 24 haha...Besides he doesn't want to get married anymore.

            Well, I have a feeling the court used the letter by the ex in their decision making process as well as the short length in marriage. Keep in mind that the issue for the immigratino judge would be whether USCIS that the facts of your application were untruthful and you were denied properly. So, the question the immigration lawyer will ask first, can you prove you entered into marriage under good faith. This is the evidence your coworker will need and substantiate.

            This link may help you find an immigration lawyer in your area. Good luck to you and your coworker.

                Thanks brit..there seems to be a huge gamut of lawyers with varied fees, and services. We definitely need one who can refute these false allegations based on one caustic handwritten letter. Someone who has experience dealing with such denials based on fraud. Interesting to know how one letter can create havoc in the immigrants life.

                  So long as he has enough evidence proving a good faith marriage at the time of inception, that's the main thing. Also he should be able to show an ongoing relationship to the point of separation.

                  I doubt the sour grapes letter had much to do with it. Most likely he didn't show enough evidence. I'd have thought the marriage counselor could be a good thing. Yes, they were having trouble but it also proves a legit relationship

                  That lawyer I can vouch for. I've known him since 1999.

                    SiteILW: How do you know that the allegations were "false," as you allege? I'd say that a letter from the guy's former wife would carry quite a lot of weight...after all, she was the one involved in the relationship, and the one who sponsored him for immigration purposes.

                    Furthermore, your co-worker is NOT an immigrant...he is an alien with temporary employment authorization - and said employment authorization has likely been canceled as a result of his immigration benefit being denied.

                      Sundevil,
                      Under the United States Code, and the Constitution, there are only two categoris, citizen and alien,.An alien does include an immigrant, ie someone who has a green card, or even a U.S. national. The coworker works so long as the green card is valid. What complicated the coworker situation was the fact that the marriage was short, and probably not too many shared assets, joint tax returns, etc. However, as long as the coworker can substantiate a marriage entered into good faith, then the conditions on t he permanent residency should be removed.

                          Far better to have somebody batting for your side when dealing with the USCIS than not, especially in I-751 cases.
