My vawa petition was recently approved. I am waiting for an "green card"interview. I want to divorce my abusive husband. I consulted different immigration and divorce lawyers. Majority say grounds do not matter and consider "No fault", though couple had different opinions. Even USCIS Veb site states that Ground for divorce shouldn't necessary state " Cruel and inhuman treatment " . I would appressiate if you share your experiences and opinions. I would like to hear mostly from immigration attorneys who delt with such issues'. Thank you.
Although many attorneys have been successful with irreconcilable differences in this situation, I personally use emotional cruelty. If the VAWA application has been filed, I take the language from the application, so there is consistency. If the facts are there, and that is the reason for the divorce, why would I state differently on the divorce complaint? That's my thought on it,many way.
