CASE: I-751 / Waiver of the Joint Waiver Requirement
APPLICANT : Swedish
Our client contacted our office in early January of this year regarding his potential I-751 filing. He is from Sweden and married a U.S. citizen in November 2009. Through his marriage with a U.S. citizen spouse, he obtained a 2-year conditional green card in April of 2010. Therefore, his conditional residency terminated in April 2012.
Unfortunately, their marriage ended in December 2011. Thus, our client could not file I-751 application jointly with his ex-wife. After the consultation, we advised that we can help him 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 January 26, 2012, our office filed the I-751 application with various supporting documents (over 20 exhibits and an affidavit over 3 pages) to demonstrate our client’s bona fide marriage with his ex-wife. On July 12, 2012, the USCIS approved our request for the removal of conditions on his permanent resident status without even an interview. Now, he has her ten-year green card.
