Real Marriage But Where’s The Evidence For I-751 Petition?

Client is from Guyana. She had a 2-year Green Card through marriage. However, shortly before it expired, her and her husband filed the I-751 petition on their own to get the 10-year Green Card.

After they filed the I-751, USCIS sent them a long letter requesting more evidence.

She was scared because she didn’t have the evidence they were asking about. They didn’t have a lease, joint bank account, insurance, children together, etc.

She didn’t know what to do so she contacted us.

On November 9, 2020, we had a Video Consultation with her.

We told her not to worry because we could definitely handle this. So long as they have a genuine relationship, we could prove this to the government.

She hired us and we prepared a strong response (despite the lack of evidence noted in the RFE letter).

On December 22, 2020, we sent our response to USCIS.

On January 14, 2021, USCIS received our response.

On January 28, 2021, USCIS sent the Approval Notice for her 10-year Green Card.

The Client couldn’t believe it. When the mail arrived, she asked her family to open it because she was so nervous. She thought it would take several months to get an answer.

The best part is that she’s also eligible to apply for naturalization NOW!

P.S.  Success stories are based on real cases. However, each case is different, and past successes do not guarantee that all cases will have a similar result.
