    I got married to a US citizen back home in Africa,then after two year of our marriage I got to reunite with her in the US. But in less than two months of my stay here she got abusive and threatened me that she will divorce me if I did not do what ever she wanted,she locked me up in the house,insulted me and made me feel tortured, later filed for an annulment of our marriage based on facts well known to her. I have my two year green card with conditions.
    I am afraid that after two years I might not be able to renew my green card.
    And I know the marriage was in good faith.

    • A conditional resident does not have to stay with an abusive spouse. Conditional residents are allowed to divorce their US citizen spouses. If the conditional resident divorces their spouse before they receive the unconditional 10-year green card, they submit an application for Waiver of Removal of Condition from Permanent Residence once the divorce is finalized. They must show that they marriage was entered into in good faith. This is shown by documentation that the couple lived together and shared assets and liabilities and evidence that the couple publicly held themselves out as husband and wife. Even if the divorce has not been finalized, the conditional resident can apply for a waiver of the conditional residence by showing that they entered into the marriage in good faith, but they we abused by their spouse.

      An experienced immigration attorney can assist someone in gathering as much documentation as they can of the fact that they were in a good faith marriage and the fact that they were in an abusive relationship.

    Dear Mr Ari Sauer,

    I went USA in 1991 arrived at LA airport and arrested because of visa was fake that i did not know , the officer was bring me at hostel and next day left me at LA donwtown area with I-94 and some documents without my passport . i was stay almost a year then voluntary i came back in my country , now i want go back usa , Do i need waive off ? please reply me ,

      It is hard to tell from the facts presented. It sounds like the officer may have been part of the scam to bring you into the US. Or maybe not. I would need to review your I94 and any other documents and likely order a copy of your immigration files before I could answer about what options may be available to you.

      Call 901-597-4270 to schedule a consultation appointment with me to discuss your options.

    how to answer this question to the immigration officer “not able to demonstrate that you adequately meet the job requirement of yoour prospective employment

    • You need to hire an attorney to respond to that Request for Evidence for you. I couldn’t tell you what you need to provide to respond to that question without a full consultation including review of all documentation previously provided to the government.

      If you would like to schedule a consultation appointment with me, you can do so by calling 901-682-6455. I am available to do consultation appointments by phone or at my officer. Standard consultation fees apply.
