I urgently need help. tearing....I filed my I-751 one year ago, still in initial review. During this year, expecially recently, my husband threated me many times to cancel his support. My feeling is hurt and I want to divorce him.After, we married, I move from CT into MA, the apartment we rent. He still live with his parents, because his parents donot want his daughter leave. He only come to my apartment to spend Saturday night, recently, even not Saturday night.He threate me many times to cancel his support on my green card. He contact with another woman in Canada when he dated me. I didnot know her until we married. They acclaim they are friends. I donot want my husband contact her because the woman's life is messay, she doesnot have a job, she lived with guy #1 and had fair with guy #2, while guy#2 had a accident, she went back to guy#1, then she dated with guy#3, guy #4......My husband promise me and his mother (my mother-in-law) not contact with the Canadian woman, but he still closely text each other. I called the Canadian woman white trash once and my husband told her, now she text me and threat me to call USCIS and my boss, very rude....Myself is a scientist, in fact, I could file EB1, or EB2 myself before. My Husband never hit me physically. he tortures me with his words. I know he has depression before we married, but back that time, he was humble and willing to listen to me. I thought our marriage make him feel good. but he become worse, or he thinks he can control me with green card application, so he can do whatever he want, not caring my feeling.The I-751 is in procession for one year, too long...I can not stand anymore, what I should do?

Please be patient as we work through this process - your questions WILL be answered in the order they are received.I'm sorry to hear about your troubles. It's terrible. Unfortunately, this happens to a lot more people than you would think.Anyway, as to available options... a person who has a pending I-751 and files for a divorce should contact the USCIS to inform them once they have started initiating divorce processing. The USCIS will put the I-751 on hold, and wait for the divorce to be finalized. Usually, it the I-751 requires the American spouse to file the I-751 jointly with the applicant. However where there is a divorce, the USCIS will accept the I-751 without the US citizen spouse. The applicant will then have to show that the marriage was entered into in good faith, at the time of marriage, to get an approval. In other words, the applicant must prove that they did not marry the person for immigration benefits alone. When you filed the I-751, you should automatically have gotten an extension of your conditional status for 1 year. If the additional year is about to expire, you need to make an InfoPass appointment to get another extension, based on the processing I-751. You will continue to be eligible for work authorization, if any, during this time.I hope I have answered your question. Please remember to rate my answer below.
