Thread: Its Officially Over: I-751 Waiver Approved Without Interview

  1. #1
    Two weeks ago I was told by an immigration officer over the phone that my I-751 waiver petition (marriage entered in good faith & subjected to extreme mental cruelty) was approved on 6/17/05 although no approval letter was mailed out.

    Today I went to my local district office (Newark) and they confirm to me that my case was approved without interview and I was processed for new permanent resident card. My category now is IR6 and they stamped my passport with the regular 1 year I-551 stamp, however, this time they wrote section 216 approved. They took my expired conditional green card and they told me I should receive my new card between 6 to 12 months.

    I can't believe the LPR process is finally over. I filed the I-485 on August of 2000 so it took 5 years to become an unconditional permanent resident.

    As an aspiring attorney I am very proud because I self-represented myself through divorce proceedings and won a great battle against my ex-wife and obtained a no-fault divorce and once the divorce was final, I filed on my own the I-751 waiver petition which was approved without interview.

    A curious fact of my case is that when I filed the joint I-751 my case was selected for interview, once I re-filed on the waiver grounds, my case was approved without interview...

    The next stop on my immigration journey will be filing the N-400 on January 2006. For those of you who supported me and provided with helpful advice, THANK YOU VERY MUCH! and for those still waiting, as long as the facts of your case are true, you will be approved.

    Your success story makes me feel much better about my own waiver.
    How did you prove "extreme mental cruelty"?

    Jacek:

    I submitted an expert testimony report from an experienced psychologist. I also submitted a letter from a clinic in which I was treated for depression/anxiety.

    Congratulations are in order. Did the District Office inform you that the former joint I751 was set for an interview, before the waiver(s) were filed?
    The above is simply an opinion. Your mileage may vary. For immigration issues, please consult an immigration attorney.

    No the District Office never notified me about the previous jointly filed I-751 being selected for interview. I went to Newark on December of last year to find out what was going on with my case and I found out that my second I-751 never made to my alien file because my file was transferred to Newark for an interview on the joint I-751, however, I filed thw second I-751 on March 2004 and VSC transferred my file to Newark in May 2004 without putting the waiver in my file. When I went in December and told me this, they realized their mistake and Newark sent my file back to VSC so VSC could put the second petition on my file and adjudicate my case on the basis of the waiver petition.

    Aguila,

    I don't have such proofs for myself.
    I was participating in a few of my ex's counseling sessions, but that was her psychologist, not mine.

    Are you becoming an immigration lawyer?

    Well done Aguila. It's been one h e l l of a journey for you. I am happy to hear that it has ended in such a positive way. Very interesting to hear that you were approved without interview. Who woulda thunk, eh?

    You'll be a citizen soon enough. Here's to a speedy final chapter on your long journey.

    Good luck with law school. I know you'll be a rock star.
