We have published a new video that explains how to transition from a conditional green card to a permanent green card without the financial support of your spouse – because you are separated or divorced. To transition from a conditional green card to a permanent green card, the spouse of a US citizen must complete a Form I-751. But without the support of your US citizen spouse, it can be difficult and stressful, especially if you lack money or income. Many videos address the immigration considerations, but few address the financial. Because your spouse sponsored your immigration and completed the Form I-864, Affidavit of Support, your spouse promised to financially support you. This financial support can be obtained with the help of a lawyer. This can be done on a contingency basis, which means the lawyers who represent you will cover all the costs and will only get paid and reimbursed if they are successful in getting you money.
