Yes you can. You will have to have a very good explanation for why your spouse is not applying for the removal of condition on your status with you. See a good attorney to strategize before applying. Good luck!

Most likely. File the removal of the condition with a copy of your divorce. You must explain the marriage did nt work out and tell why. It can not be your fault, but you don't necessarily have to make your ex be a total jerk either. Stuff like we grew apart, he became reilgious and I am an atheist, are examples I have seen. Be sure to include proof that you got married in good faith (with the intention to built a life together). Such proof includes (but is not limited to) photos, joint bills, rental agreement together. joint bank statement, joint tax return, driver license showing same address, etc...Good luck.

    Yes you self petition using the I-751 as the waiver. However, as you arenot removing the condition jointly it is more difficult to obtain; so you need a good legal argument with the petition. Contact my office if you need help preparing.

    Yes, even though you are divorced you can still file to remove your conditional status. You must show that your marriage was bona fide.
