Thread: waiver question

  1. #1
    well, friday is fast approaching, and I had a question if I may. My daughter was on our original petition and was included in my I-751 joint application. Since it is almost for certain they'll refuse me on friday, I'll have to file a 601, is she included in that also? or do we have do prepare a second one for her. She was a minor when I married, but now 20 with a US citizen child. Thanks in advance for any replies.

    You do not have to file a form I-601 that is a completely different thing.

    What you will must re-file is a form I-751, the only thing it will change is your eligibility. Instead you will check the box that says " I am requesting a waiver of the joint filing requirement because: "I entered into marriage in good faith but it was ended by divorce/annulment"

    Or something like that. I am pretty sure that you will have to put your daughter on the same form.

    thanks Aquila, it makes more sense now I'm sure a new form means a new payment eh?

    I am legally able to apply (file) for divorce on December 14, and I'm told it takes 30 to 60 days from there for it to be finalized. So, in the meantime do I continue as I have been? Am I able to continue working?

    I would suggest going to www.immigrate2us.net

    There is EXCELLENT info on waivers!

    As Aguila has already pointed out, the waivers being discussed in this context are not the same as those involving I-601s. The waiver for an I-751 is an entirely different beast and has nothing to do with I-601s. The waivers discussed on immigrate2us.net are not relevant to this issue.

    *lol* funny you should say "detain" because my nightmares have been really vivid. I dream they handcuff me, both wrists and ankles, put a big brown burlapp bag over my head and tie a rope around it. Uh huh, you could say I'm a bit nervous If only he would have given me the letter he said he would.. oh well, I'll deal with the cards given me. Thanks again for the luck, I'll post when I return. Just cross your fingers ok?

    Ok, if I can impose on your opinions just a bit more I'd really appreciate it...here is pretty much all I can dig up to take to the interview on Friday.

    an assortment of old bills/receipts (from movie rentals to vehicle tax) not all receipts have both names, but they do have the same address

    two or three pictures of us together (that is all I could locate)

    Our vehicle insurance policies, with both names indicated

    Our original marriage license

    Our escrow analysis statement- next due date showing Jan/05
    our inspection report and picture of our home from 2000, when we bought it

    taxes from 1998 - 2002

    benefit change forms from his last employer here showing me as insured under him and his beneficiary dated 2003

    his original birth certificate

    bank statement with both our names (can only find one dated 2002)

    a picture of his lady friend outside our home last fall

    an online application from him to some dating/matchmaking service

    emails from friends of his/ours emailing with msg's to give the other

    an email from me and him/ his decides seperation as "husband and wife" as he puts it


    Tomorrow I pick up the letter from the shelter and the lawyer will have my divorce papers ready to show for immigration if they want. I just can't file them until the 14th.

    Can you think of anything else?

    ps.. I also have two credit cards, one in each name with the same account number on them.. expires 11 05. Also his DUI release paper when he finished the course. The driving record obtained by the insurance company for their purpose.
