Post image for I-751 Approval for Ghanaian Client in Columbus Ohio with Waiver of Joint Filing Requirement due to Divorce

CASE: I-751 / Waiver of the Joint Waiver Requirement
APPLICANT: Ghanaian
LOCATION: Columbus, OH

Our client contacted our office in July of 2016 regarding a response to the RFE for her I-751 filing. She is from Ghana and she married a U.S. citizen in May 2013. Through her marriage with a U.S. citizen spouse, she obtained a 2-year conditional green card in January of 2014. Therefore, her conditional residency terminated in January 2016. She filed the I-751 with her husband in 2015. However, she got the RFE from the USCIS in May 2016.

Unfortunately, during their marriage, our client and her ex-husband went through struggles. Therefore, immediately after they filed the I-751, they lived separately for a while and divorce proceedings was initiated. Thus, our client could not proceed with I-751 joint filing with her ex-husband. After the consultation, we advised that we can help her file the I-751 application with a waiver of the joint filing requirement. We requested a waiver because our client entered into the marriage in good faith, but the marriage was terminated through divorce or annulment before they can file a joint petition.

On August 2, 2016, our office filed the Response to RFE with the request of I-751 application category conversion from joint filing to waiver of filing with various supporting documents (over 15 exhibits and an affidavit over 6 pages) to demonstrate our client’s bona fide marriage with her ex-husband. 

In September 2016, the USCIS scheduled an I-751 interview for our client. Prior to the interview, our office thoroughly prepared our client via conference call with potential issues at the interview. On October 27, 2016, our client was interviewed for her I-751 application at the USCIS Columbus, OH Field Office. The interview was very extensive and the officer questioned a lot of the nature of her marriage with her ex-husband.  Nevertheless, the USCIS approved his I-751 application on December 7, 2016. Now, she has her ten-year green card.

Post image for Despite Late Filing, I-751 Removal of Conditions Approval for Kenyan Client in Cleveland Ohio

CASE: I-751

APPLICANT: Kenyan

LOCATION: Cleveland, OH

Our client contacted our office in January of this year regarding his I-751 application.

He is from Kenya and obtained his conditional residency based on being the minor son of his mother. In October 2005, while he was in Kenya, his mother married her U.S. citizen husband and got her conditional permanent residency through the marriage. Her U.S. citizen husband filed the I-130 petition for our client and as a result, our client got his immigrant visa in December 2006. Later, his mother got divorced to her U.S. citizen husband, but she removed the condition on her permanent residency. However, she did not file the I-751 petition for our client because she did not know that our client also should apply.

Without the proper guidance of any immigration counsel, our client’s mother filed I-130 petition again for our client and our client filed his green card. Obviously, because of the wrong procedures that they took, our client was placed in removal proceedings. Nevertheless, the Immigration Judge administratively closed his proceedings and advised him to file I-751. she married a U.S. citizen in July 2007. Through her marriage, she obtained a 2-year conditional green card in March of 2008.  Her conditional residency terminated in March 2010.

The USCIS still allows the I-751 applicant to file his or her I-751 application as long as there is a good cause for the late filing. After the administrative closure of his case, our client then retained our office for the I-751 filing. Once retained, our office prepared an I-751 application for our client with his mother’s divorce decree, naturalization certificate, and his letter to explain his late filing.

On February 16, 2016, our office filed an I-751 application to the USCIS with an affidavit of applicant to explain his late filing and other supporting documents.

Eventually, on October 4, 2016, the USCIS approved our client’s I-751 application without any RFE or interview. Now, he has her ten-year green card.
