Q: My US wife abandoned our house with our kids. expecting appointment to remove my conditional residency. she might not go
My wife and I dated back home, and she moved to the US. We later got married, and I joined her in the US in 2018. We have two daughters together. Marriage has been a lot of arguments. Threw me out some times, but I refused to leave. She left house with the baby and wants a divorce. She even left me in debt we accumulated together, and I had to pay while I in college. Now my appointment to remove my condtional residency is coming up; she won't want to go. What do I do? Thought she does not want the marriage, I still do. Been talking to her, but she insists. Family controls her. What do I do about my appointment?
A: You should still go to the appointment. She may or may not attend. If she does not or if she comes and says she does not want to go forward, then the petition is dead. If that unfortunately happens you will need to explore other options. Those options might need you to talk to a lawyer.
Your situation is dire and requires an immediate legal consultation confidentially with an experienced immigration attorney of your choice without any delay.
One remote paragraph without your participation will not suffice.
A: You should retain a qualified immigration attorney to file a VAWA application. A VAWA application also applies to men if you can establish that you were abused either physically, emotionally mentally etc. and you then do not have to file to remove the conditions jointly, but you can self petition after you get divorced.
