I have a conditional green card. My spouse was very abusive and I am currently seeking divorce from him. Our divorce case is going on. My husband had dropped several emails to USCIS in order to deport me. A domestic voilence group has suggested to me that I should file I-751 before divorce is finalized because One of their clients who had a similar situation like mine was deported soon after her divorce based on her husband's false emails to USCIS.
The validity of my green card ends May 2013.
Should I file I - 751 under battered spouse waiver before divorce has not finished? Is it legal?
What all documents should I collect and attache with I-751?
Do I need to Attach divorce decree as well if I am filing under Battered spouse waiver?
Thanks so much answering
You do not have to be divorced from your abusive spouse if you seek the battered spouse waiver. You should retain a lawyer or BIA credited non-profit representative to do this for you.
