Does having a stokes interview make it easier to obtain an i751 waiver

Asked almost 2 years ago - New York, NY

We had a stokes interview, which we passed and I was given a conditional green card. Now it's been 8 months since I got it, I'm divorcing my wive because of her cheating on me and will be filing for a 751 waiver. Does the fact that we passed a stokes make it easier to obtain a waiver? Is it important that I indicate my wife's adultery in the divorce decree ?

    Answered . The prior interview is irrelevant. Now you are worried about the 2 year period after the interview and proving the marriage is real.
