Helping With Divorce And Immigration Issues In San Francisco
Unfortunately, not every marriage works out, and sometimes divorce occurs before the petition to remove conditions on residency can be filed. It is in your best interest to seek out an experienced immigration attorney who can help you determine the best legal steps to remain in the country after a divorce.
Experienced Immigration Legal Help During Your Divorce
At the Law Office of Amie D. Miller, I can help you with all of your immigration needs if your marital status changes before a petition has been filed or needs to be amended. For more information about my legal services, please do not hesitate to contact me today to schedule a consultation at my centrally located San Francisco, California, office.
If you are a conditional resident and your marriage ends before the two-year anniversary of your conditional permanent resident divorce approval, I will help you seek an I-751 waiver. In certain circumstances, an I-360 petition for battered spouses under the Violence Against Women Act (VAWA) may be warranted.
You may also use this waiver if you have suffered physical or mental abuse and the divorce resulted because of this abusive treatment, or if returning to your home country would cause you extreme hardship. As your attorney, I will help you brainstorm and gather evidence that supports your petition for this life-saving waiver.
