Divorce Waiver and Removal of Conditional Green Card
A common fact pattern is that a couple marries for love and then one of them wants a divorce before the application of the removal of the green card.
MOST IMPORTANT-- The conditional green card holder can apply for the removal of the conditions by themselves if they have a final divorce decree. What needs to be shown is that the marriage was entered into in good faith. Evidence that will assist the divorced spouse includes
- Evidence of Joint assets: joint credit card statements, joint banking accounts either prior to marriage or shortly after marriage
- Letters from friends (called affidavits) where people who know both of the members of the couple and discuss the authenticity of the relationship
- Photos of the couple/wedding album
- Length of time the couple lived together--joint lease
