The fact and I wanted to revisit is that if you have such a family member that I mentioned, they can file parole in place for you that would allow you to eventually get a green card
Then the other thing that we got a lot of questions about is family based petitions.
So for instance:
If your child is over 21 can they petition for you?
We’ve also been getting questions about the I-751. The I-751 is where you have to renew your green card after 2 years and I recommend you do it 90 days before the 2 year period after getting your original green card If you haven’t been married and if you don’t do that, you will be put into Deportation proceedings so it’s really important that you do this! We’re talking about the importance of renewing your I-751, just wanted to correct myself, you won’t necessarily be put in Removal Proceedings but we have seen cases where that does happen and even if you get divorced within that 2 year period you can file what’s called the removal of the joint conditions through a waiver, and there are 2 ways you can remove the conditions:
- By showing that you have a good faith marriage.
- By showing hardship.
You can also make an argument based off of both of those grounds. We do many of these waivers. Typically, you will get called in for an interview in that situation. For a good faith marriage. It’s really important to show that you really entered the marriage with the intent to permanently live together and the way that you do that is by providing a variety of documents – affidavits from friends and family. Those are some of the ways that you do it and it’s very important that you build a very detailed and extensive situation because you have the burden of proof of demonstrating that you had a real marriage.
Alright I want to thank you for tuning in, that is going to be it for today, I want to wish you a very happy new year! Ask your questions below and we can talk about them next time or we can discuss them in the chat below.
