    Thanks hudson,
    I don't know what is going to happen. One day it seem like we are making progress but then the very next day bring us back to square one.
    I don't think I can wait until the divorce (if we decide to go for it ) is over. It will be 4 months over my conditional residency date and I am sure by then USCIS will start their removal proceedings.
    I have to apply with the waiver and see what happens. I read that in these cases the case comes to the local office for the interview. Does it follow the same time course (ie 1 year wait time currently for vermont center) or since it is going to be handled by local office, they just sort it out as they recieve it and send it right away to local office ? How does it work ?

    Hi Hudson,
    Thanks for your response.
    What happens in cases where divorce is not finalized before interview. Theoretically they should postpone the interview until the divorce gets over or atleast give reasonable time for one or both parties to push it to get over. Do they do that ? I read about vegas divorces in 2 weeks... any ideas..guys???
    We don't have a kid and fortunately our financial condition is not very tangled, so I think. I think if it gets to that level, I don't think we have much to fight over; only time will tell. My main concern is timeline. Seem like I can't afford too much time because either way I am the one affected in terms of my legal presence in this country.

    I am thinking immigration lawyer but as a alot of ppl here, money is not freely flowing also, atleast not where lawyers talk in thousands and not hundreds ...
    by the way, how much a lawyer charge approx? Also need to worry about lawyers experience/credibility as I have read in some cases, some really bad advices have come from lawyers too....

    hudson ..what do you mean in 1. when you said this scenario is unlikely ? Us getting back together ?

    thanks once again for your response..
    I am very worried...
    people, please help ...

    Hi Sandy,

    From your post, I am not sure if you have filed the I-751 or not. If not, I would wait until the divorce is final. If you file beyond your 2 conditional status, you will need to attach a statement explaining why you filed late. Reasonable explanations should be accepted by USCIS. However, do not wait too long beyond the date or else you risk your status.

    If you have already filed and divorce is not settled, you might potentially postpone the interview once or twice. But the way USCIS is currently operating, you probably will get another year extended on your conditional green card, and thus, may complete the divorce proceeding before the interview. However, this strategy may also risk your status.

    An immigration lawyer would cost your betwen two thousand to five thousand dollars. But there is free immigration help as well. This site provides lists of free legal help in the state you reside in. There are limitations to their service, but your situation does not fit into that situation.

    Sandy, as for my reference about the two of you getting back together, I was referring to the time limit you have when in order to adjust your status. When you lose the trust that exists between a husband and a wife, it is hard to get that trust back. In most cases, the trust is never fully restored. And in your situation, you also have a time limit, which adds pressure that getting back together becomes more difficult. Thus, refiling the I-751 based on a joint petition, not a waiver, is an unlikely scenario, in my opinion.

    Hope this helps.

    Do you think there are "seperation police" yto check that you really were seperated for one year? You can be "emotionally" seperated which is sufficient. Sometimes this is referred to as "abandonment". Every state has some form of mutual consent divorce. The only problem is greed and stupidity which is the only reason why divorces end up taking longer and costing more. My ex dragged out the divorce and I was still able to shove it down her throat in 4 months. With cooperation and decency, it can be 2 months. Don't tell me what I know for a fact.

    Divorces in Virginia can be "contested", which requires adversarial proof, or they can be "uncontested" (which are usually based on a mutual and voluntary separation of at least six months).

    1. Uncontested Divorce. If the parties agree to be divorced, you must have a written Separation Agreement that makes adequate and sufficient provisions in writing for the custody and support of the minor children of the marriage and makes a fair and equitable division of your property. If there are no children, and an agreement, you can file for divorce with six month's separation.

    If there are children, or you and your spouse cannot reach an agreement, you have to be separated for at least one year. There are also additional technical requirements, but the Separation Agreement is the essence of an uncontested divorce. As for assessing fault for the marriage breakdown, you only need to say that differences have arisen that will prevent you from living together as husband and wife, there is no hope of reconciliation and you intend to end the marriage.

    2. Contested Divorce. A contested divorce is a case in which the parties cannot agree on one or more points (property division, alimony, custody, child support, or attorney's fees). Even when parties have lived separate and apart for six months, and wish to be divorced but cannot agree to the terms of financial settlement, or custody, it is still a contested divorce.

    Hello Scammer Sandy !

    A divorce can be over in 2 mnths for $600 and have no effect on your immigration status IF you are not greedy. But thats always the issue with you people, isn't it? </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Son of Michael,
    You are so predictable dude. I have read your other posts to other members also. This was expected of you.
    I personally think that you don't even deserve a reply, let alone a clarification of any sort on my part.
    Learn to respect people first and then talk.

    Proud USC, I am learning it is right. VA has a 1 year separation before divorce.
