I married a USC on February 4, 2011, after a few months later in April, we sent the petition to the USCIS to get my conditional green card, got the interview sometime in mid-July, because I guess we did not provide much documentation as evidence. So they sent us home requesting more evidence, so after a month or so, seeing that we did not have any documentation still, decided to provide the USCIS with the affidavits of a few people, including my USC's parents with whom we lived (their home and their bills). My wife and I did not work throughout the year, so everything related to bills were paid for by the parents, we did not have a joint account either because my wife's credit cards were taken care of by her parents. As for me, I was looking for a job, so I did not have any expenses of my
own. So once we sent the affidavits only, we did not hear back for another few months. Then my father overseas needed help since he had cancer, and I was waiting for my green card to arrive to go back and see him. We called the immigration to remind about myself, and in a week the card arrived at the end of November 2011. I left on 3rd of December, until July of 2012 as my father passed away in June. I worked full-time in my home country and basically relocated there while i'm USC was in the US. She filed for divorce in february 2012 (i left in december 2011 and got the card in november 2011) because she claimed that i defrauded her for g.c. and that i abandoned her. She later wrote to the USCIS accusing me of fraud. My g card is expiring this november we are divorced and i have no joint docs with her at all due to the situation above. How can I go about with my I-751 in my situation. I can provide affidavits from my friends if that helps.

It will be hard to refute what your wife already said to USCIS. Perhaps trying to talk with her about this will help, but either way, talk to an immigration attorney for a more detailed evaluation of what can be done.

That you absolutely need to retain an experienced immigration lawyer to review all the facts, advise you, and handle the case. You can find one through http://www.ailalawyer.com.
