Removal of Conditions Waiver Approved

March 5, 2023

In September 2020, client met with Attorney Pompy to discuss her conditional lawful permanent residence status 
Her status was set to expire in February 2021, and she was unable to locate her husband.
She filed for divorce in October 2020.
She later hired the firm to prepare her I-751 waiver so that she may get her 10-year green card without her husband’s help.

Unfortunately, she did not have enough evidence to prove a bona fide marriage.
We informed her to expect a Request for Evidence (RFE) since her divorce was not yet final and her case was weak. 
We filed her case in February 2021.

In July 2022, we received an RFE notice requesting more evidence of a bona fide marriage, the final divorce decree and evidence to show that she will suffer extreme hardship if she is deported. 
The only additional evidence the client had was mail she was still receiving for her ex-husband and bank statements.
Thus, the firm focused its winning strategy on proving the client would suffer extreme hardship if she is deported.

We examined her circumstances very carefully and built our winning strategy on those circumstances. 
We submitted the response to the RFE in December 2022.
On January 18, 2023, the case was approved
