    Dadejar:

    Run a few searches with my nickname in this discussion board and you will find all the answers you need if you read them carefully.

    I am now a USC (and a law student) and I was in a very similar situation as yours. I researched the I-751/divorce/waiver for two years and I had my I-751 waiver peition approved without interview. There is a lot of wrong advice in this post. You don't need to spend more money with attorney fees, also you should be writing a letter to your current attorney demanding the $2,500 back or else you should report him to your state's bar association. He was very negligent in allowing you to show-up for a joint I-751 interview with no preparation based on the status of your marriage. If AFTER reading all of my relevant posts, feel free to write me to aguila@britishexpats.com

    If your lawyer can do it with $2000, I think it is very reasonable. My friend paid $2500 to their lawyer for the normal process here.

    Usually it takes 6 months after submit divorce application to the court. Then, it will take another 1 or 2 months to get finalized. Usually the fee is around $400. So, if you pay more, the court can finalize your case in 1 month?? Or your lawyer will submit the document to the court to explain your case, which may shorten the time?

    Dadehar,
    don't listen to battered spouse stuff and reasons.Never claim something that never happened to you,nor should u claim something u can not prove.
    For battered spouse,u have to solid proof.
    Nevermind that...

    What state and city are you from? and we can see as far immigration attorney goes

    i came to us on k1 and then got conditional gc, but i started having problems with my wife to the point i had to move out after 2 yrs. at time of applying to remove conditions, she did signed the joint petition and i was called for interview, but my refused to come. so i hired a lawyer and wasted lots of money to take him with me on interview, but the officer denied the petition without even hearing us and as i m not currently divorced, told me to file waiver after getting a divorce and gave 4 months time for that. my lawyer wants to file pettion based on battered spouse clause becuse i did have extreme mental trauma becuse he thinks, waiting for divorce decree can be dangerous because it may take more than 4 months and he told me we can always use the good faith marriage resulting in divorce clause once we get it.my question is wat are the chances of battered spouse waiver and will not it have an impact on divorce clause if we need to apply that too because at one time, we can just use one consition or can ni use both at same time. i m confused and very tense, should i wait for divorce and then apply cos my amrriage was bonafide and ve proofs or should i as per lawyer go ahaead apply battered spouse and i know its very difficult to prove battered spouse as i had mental truma, no police reports, etc. wat should i do and wat are my chances. any help will be appreciated </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

    You can file a waiver on any and all applicable grounds. You do not have to file on one ground alone. However, without a divorce decree you CAN'T file a waiver on the basis that the marriage was legitimate but ended in divorce, because the divorce is not yet finalise, but could file a battered spouse waiver. If you don't understand the direction your attorney is recommending, consult another for a second opinion.

    This is USCIS we are talking about. In-laws say the marriage is going fine and dandy, and right after the application is filed, BAM...you are separated and spouse doesn't even show up for interview. You can rationalize anyway you want in your favor, but any half-smart officer will have a question mark all over.

    Moreover, OP wrote in his original post - "i started having problems with my wife to the point i had to move out after 2 yrs. at time of applying to remove conditions, she did signed the joint petition"
    It sure sounds like they got separated soon after filing the I-751.

    I agree and disagree,
    by the time he sent the application,they were married and things were normal...between the time of sending the application and waiting over hald a year for an interview,she left him.

    So what the in laws wrote was actually normal and accurate,no one can for-see the future.

    Imagine signing both papers...few weeks later the US citizen wife catches the spouse cheating,and she wants a divorce...and prior the cheating everyhting was great.
    So its no biggie...

    As long as they are saying the truth,its alright.The IN LAWS are telling the truth either way - yes they were married yadi ya,yes in was real,yes they maried because of love etc...

    People should realize by the time both couple sent the application and by the time there is an interview...things,alot of things can happen.

    also hbk, one more question, actually my in laws wrote affidavits while filing joint pettion saying marriage i s goin on fine, can they again write new ones about bonafide marriage </div></BLOCKQUOTE>


    Your in-laws wrote marriage was going fine but you are getting devorced.

    You'd better be careful to get them involved again. It's a potentially fraud affidavit that can put both you and your in-laws in big trouble.

    Okay, in a divorce case, an affadavit should included that the marriage was entered in good faith and it was real.

    Uusually when you have a consulation,bring everyhting you are about to sent,with your to your attorney...tell him or her what your deal is and present what u have.

    Make sure U e mail some laywers and ask them 2-3 questions and ask how much an consulation would cost like.

    I paid only $100 because I told them that an service group referred them to me.Otherwise it would have cost 150 bucks.

    But no consulation should cost more than 150 bucks,thats actually the right and decnt avarage price.Beaware of the one over charging.

    My consultation was around 30 minutes,and I felt very very good about it.U know you right away get the feeling if this attorney is the right one...if u get the feelin of doubts,you know not to use them.

    Get like I said everyhting together,everyhting.
    make lots of copies of pictures.
    Remember,when U have to prove you got married because of love and not greencard,you need to show when they say 'married in good faith/" that actually means,showing and providing evidence,that you and your wife had a relationship before marriage,aka dating period,engaged etc...

    the rest is actually easy,unless the marriage was a scam.To show the marriage was real.
    A fraud marriage,greencard marriage is usually easy to see,because those people,do not actually live together,have hardly any pictures,don't have the same address or live with another relative etc.

    Let me know - good luck
