Thread: Filed I-751 and now widowed

  1. #1
    Hello,
    My husband (US citizen)just passed away and I am really lost on what I should do.
    We were maried for over 3 years, I filled I-751 for the conditional to be removed last february, the case is still pending.
    Am I suppose to let the immigration know that my husband just passed? I am really lost on what am I suppose to do paper wise, what are the proper steps? does anyone knows? thank you

    I am sorry to hear about your plight,but if I'm not mistaken an I-751 is based on a valid currently functioning marriage & if the petitioner is removed from the marriage then it is likely the petition will also be removed as a result.

    Carolus, I am sorry for your loss. Unfortunately, Lyric is right. It's known as the widow penalty, however I believe that there is legislation, either proposed or approved, that aims to address it.

    I would suggest that you consult an immigration attorney as soon as possible.

    Hi Carlous,

    There is (and has been for a long time) a possibility to file a waiver I-751 in cases like yours. I am pretty sure all you need to do now is to send a new I-751 as a widow. Enclose all the evidence you used before, some more recent one and death certificate. In the cover letter you may want to mention that you are withdrawng the joint I-751.

    (The same procedure would be if one divorced during the time a joint I-751 was pending).

    "Widow penalty" refers to something else.

    From I-751 instructions:
    "However, you may apply for a waiver of this joint filing requirement if:
    1. You entered the marriage in good faith, but your spouse subsequently died;"

    My husand was diagnosed with cancer 3 month ago, it all went really fast...
    So you are saying that I would have to file all over again the I-751? even if I already did the biometric 5 month ago?
    Thanks for all of your input, truly

    Sorry for your loss. You should make an INFOPASS appointment with the office and advise them of the situation and you will probably have to refile as a widow. Good Luck.

    I know what communism is. You don't. You know nothing about history and the words you use.
    Obama is anti-communism just as Solidarnosc was anti-communism.
    Obama is the man of Hope just as Lech Walesa was the man of Hope.
    People chanted "Solidarnosc" as much as people chanted "Obama".

    Bush is much closer to commmunism. He killed 1.2 million people so far.

    I agree Bush is close to communism as well. He killed 5000 people - American servicemen (Foreigners do not count as people). So I have lived 8 years under communism and now Obama will give us another 8 more. So you USED to live under communism while I CURRENTLY live under communism. I know far more about communism than you do. I remember when America was semi-capitalist. Now Russia is more capitalistic than America. Quite sad.

    And Bush administration was not communist, more fascist than anything else.
    Shows how little you know about politics, or anything else for that matter.
