I got my conditional residency in 2006 and I got divorced in 2007 under extreme conditions. I had filed for I-751 waiver and it was approved in 2010 and hence I received my 10 year extension in 2010. During I-751 waiver interview they had asked for a number of supporting documents and it was pretty painful gathering them but I did eventually submit what they asked for.
I am thinking about filing for citizenship now but I am worried whether they would try to re-scrutinize the I-751 waiver and my 10 year extension and ask for new information again?
I must respectfully disagree with Mr. Behar.
Although it will not be as painful as before, they are required to completely review your entire file.
This includes the bona fides of your original conditional permit and the waiver.
With that said, most likely you have nothing to worry about.
Still, having an attorney sitting next to you is a good idea.
I agree with Attorney Capriotti. USCIS will review you entire file. However, I agree with both immigration lawyers that your naturalization should be much smoother than your application to remove the conditions. However, you owe it to yourself to contact a New York immigration lawyer, whether myself or one of my colleagues.
