    Ven,

    You have a lot of questions...I will try to help, but I am not a lawyer.

    You can file the I-751 alone if you are divorced as long as the marriage was bonafide.

    Are you sure you want to get divorced?

    How long have you been married?

    What is your visa stat now?

    You will most have to pay child support.

    If you live in a no fault state and your wife is willing to go ahead with the divorce it might not be that expensive, maybe $1000 to $1500. However, since you are not a US citizen you should consult an immigration attorney before you do anything. Many lawyers specialize in both family and immigration law. A lot of lawyers will provide a free consultation and if they don't going to talk to one won't be very expensive.

    This forum has live chats with lawyers from time to time, there was one this past Monday. you can also search this site for an attorney, some of which you can send a question via e-mail.

    You could probably get more detailed answers by posting more specific details about your situation. Many members on this board are very knowledgable.

    Good luck!

    Dont waste your time with those lawyers who come to chat here, they are totally useless. Before they answer one question, time is up.

    Get a real lawyer and meet to discuss your case.

    DONT ACT BEFORE TALKING TO AN IMMIGRATION LAWYER. YOU WILL REGRET ANY SUCH ACTION YOU TAKE.

    Thanx,Bigdummy for your quick response and suggestions.Iam on conditional green card.Initially I thought that I dont want to give divorce on my own as i came dependant on her,But she is getting very depressed and very attention seeking and she says that she will divorce me or she will kill herself.I came to know that she has suicidal tendencies in the past thats why iam thinking if she wants divorce from i will give it to her.if do the worst thing can happen is I may lose the case and deported ,but I cant be be unhappy whole life with some with suicidal tendencied and personality disorder.
    I dont bother much about paying child support after she is my daughter and its my duty to take care of her.
    So you mean $1500 for child support or for attorney fees.I dont think the fees will be such less.because by inlaws may drag the case too long time as they want to giv all kinds of problems to me.
    I live in Ohio .
    Is it going to matter who wants to divorce for immigration.
    Thank you very much for your input

    Ven,
    You say you dont care about paying support which is good, but you need to know most women use child support money to make their (women's) hair, buy expensive underwear for their boyfriends to like and buy gas for their boyfriend's car.

    So dont think all the money will go to your daughter. You have no control how the money is spent, your work is just to pay!

    About suicide, why are you worried about your wife killing herself? People who threaten suicide never do it and in any case, that would make your I-751 easier since you will now be a widower. Its easy to remove conditions that way.

    You need to relax and wait things out or do a legal separation first then divorce as soon as you are separated for a while, but dont let the court slap you with child support because most of the money wont go to your child ok?

    Child support is ordinarily determined by the Court relative to your earnings. Alimony is also handled in the same way and most likely would not apply in your case.

    Ohio, it seems, is an equitable distribution state and one which acknowledges both no-fault and fault grounds. The expense for a divorce is dependent upon whether the parties can arrive at an agreement on the division of marital property and custody of children. If these issues are not contested, then a no-fault divorce should not cost too much to finalize. That is, unless your wife or you claim grounds for the divorce.

    Once a decree is available you can file a waiver of the I751 immdediately, if you have strong evidence of a bona fide marriage. If the deadline arrives and you are not yet divorced, you cannot file the waiver and should advise your Service Center that you are separated and, hopefully, in the final stages of divorce proceedings.
    The above is simply an opinion. Your mileage may vary. For immigration issues, please consult an immigration attorney.

    Thanx for all your suggestions friends.Marasmus I knew people who say that they commit suicide they wont do,but when they say 100 times then they mean atleast one time.If it happens Then i fear That my inlaws may say that i abused her,which i dont want to hear from them. I prefer my bay with her ,so that she wont comit suicide and her parents and she will be happy atleast happy that they have baby.Hope fully the money I send to baby use appropriately.

    I dint have much idea what do you mean by equitable ditribution state if you mean the money we have in our account.Initially their parents helped me but later once I started earing I take care of all her exoenses and our childs.But during our income tax filings i came to know that she has quite a no. of shares and and money which her parents gave it to her.I never asked anything about thta money, or how is it taken care of.So equitable distribution means they will be more worrying than me,I guess.Any Way iam not aimig for her money,if its just for money means i would have lived just like a slave to my wife and my inlaws and try to please them always,which i cant do.So I wont contest.
    But my inlaws may be willing to contest just to give me hard time.specially they will try every possible way to send me from this country so i wont have access to my baby.
    Thanks friends for your ideas.Let me me know if you have any other thoughts

    If you have evidence to support a genuine marriage, despite threats from the in-laws to the contrary, they can't have you deported. The in-laws may make allegations to USCIS, however, they play no role in your immigration situation. Your wife, on the other hand, could cause a wrinkle or two if she were to allege fraud, but this could be overcome with the appropriate documentation of a valid marriage.
    The above is simply an opinion. Your mileage may vary. For immigration issues, please consult an immigration attorney.
