my spouse and i have decided to end our 1.5 year marriage. i have heard that getting a 1-751 waiver based on legit marriage is hard to get approved and only a few who can provide stacks of documental proof get called in for tough interview, and even then, only a few of those who get interviewed get approved. what do i do at this point? i dont want to get deported; my life is here. i only have joint tax return, joint bank account, joint car loan, and lots of pictures that i can think of. help!
Cheer up! Your evidence looks good. Our law firm has been preparing I-751 waivers for over 25 years and we have yet to have one of our 751 clients deported.

It's not hopeless - you just need to strategize and work with what you have. Every case is different and immigration officers understand that. What's important is that you provide all the evidence you can based on the facts of your case in an organized manner.
Best of luck,

The evidence you have is good. You can also obtain affidavits from family and friends about your bona fide marriage.
You should note that if you are filing a waiver based on a good faith marriage, you have to have been divorced from your husband. In the meantime, if you do not file an I-751 before the termination of your conditional residency, you become deportable and could be placed into removal proceedings. So consult with an immigration attorney to help you explore other I-751 waiver options.
