Thread: I-751 filing while spouse lives seperately

  1. #1
    I have a question which service centre will have jurisdiction over the joint I-751 in case the alien lives seperately in an other state due to the college education? The one where the usc is residing or the one where alien is residing for education purposes? Thanks for any feedback.

    Thank u sphyrapicus3
    I appreciate ur response. Do u think living seperately due to education reasons will have negative effects on the approval of I-751?

    The USCIS realizes that not all couples live together for various reasons. It is whether you were married for bona fide reasons that is important, not where you decide to live. Just give proof that you are only separated for educational reasons (e.g. plane tickets, phone bills, etc).

    What cities are you choosing between in terms of where to file from?

    I am living in NY whereas my USC spouse is residing in TAXAS.

    I'm not so sure that vito has a choice, quite frankly. Upon review of the form itself, it would appear that the alien is the petitioner, and the spouse or USC is simply required to co-sign. If I am interpreting this correctly, then surely the alien would send the form into the Service Centre having jurisdiction over his current address. Now, I don't wish to open a can of "worms", but that could complicate matters, if the alien has already filed an AR-11, showing the current address simply as a temporary one. Any notions, Sphyrapicus?

    Correction:-

    Please read TEXAS instead of Taxas.

    1/2 a dozen of one, 6 of the other...

    One could argue that vito is living at a temporary address while at school and he is not required to file an AR-11 for a temporary abode. Thus, the wife's address would be used as the basis for the I-751. On the flip side, one could argue that Vito's address is the one to use since he lives there. I could argue it either way.

    If I were the Vito, I would file with VSC - much shorter than TSC.

    VSC = April 01, 2004
    TSC = Oct 01, 2003
