How To Get An I-751 Waiver Approved by USCIS (Based on Real Cases)
I-751 Waiver Playlist Video Summary
Most people know that marrying a US Citizen is one of the easiest ways to get a green card. The I-751 Waiver can then be used to upgrade a conditional 2-year green card to a standard 10-year green card if lovers can prove they have a real, bonafied marriage to the USCIS officer.
In this video, Joseph covers what the USCIS considers when evaluating I-751 Waivers, officially called a “Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence.” This series discusses the creative solutions that Tsang & Associates has used in our past I-751 success stories to document real, bonafide marriages to the USCIS officer.

How do you prove that someone’s love is real? They certainly don’t teach this in law school, yet this is exactly what USCIS requires when you’re seeking to remove your condition, when you’re filing or 751 or 751 waiver. I’ve learned more about this subject doing cases and studying anthropology then I’ve ever expected to learn and it’s one of the most interesting cases because there’s so many life lessons buried in each love story.
Now, everybody knows marrying a US citizen to get a green card is one of the easiest ways to get a green card. You don’t have to wait for parents. You don’t have to wait for children. You don’t have to invest a million dollars. You don’t have to do any of that. You just get married and file a case. But the linchpin is that your love, your marriage has to be Bonafide. It has to be real and if you cannot prove that and if the officer discriminates against you and judges that your relationship is not sound, is not valid, then your green card can completely be washed away.
Because it’s so easy just to get married and come up with documents and then get a green card out of it, marriage fraud has been around ever since this category existed. And there’s news all the time about these fake marriages. So according to USCS officers, to them, out of 10 cases, they just have to assume 9 of them are fake. Nine of them are fraudulent. So they’re trying to catch fake marriages and trying to deny cases.
In this series, we’re going to go through case after case of very difficult cases. How do you prove those marriages are real even though there’s so few documents or there’s so many complications in between or it just looks like a case that’s about to be denied. A lot of cases have already been denied and we did a Motion To Reopen and save the day. So we’re creating this playlist to share some of the key insights for where we glean from each one of these cases because the worst case scenario is that your case gets denied because other people’s fake marriages look better than yours. Even though your marriage is real even though your love is true but because of the way it was put together, the lack of documents causes your case to be denied documents.
USCIS loves to see joint documents. Documents with people’s both names on it like the credit card statement, bank statements, deed to a house, deed to a farm or ranch, things they cans ee that document and they can put in their folder and they can see okay only a real marriage would some with two people buy a house together and live like this.
What if you don’t have anything? What if you are two monks living together with a house burned down and so you lost everything. Does that mean your marriage is fake? Well no, but how do you prove it? And that’s the key!
I remember a few years ago I created a list of 100 different types of love. Love that started between co-workers; puppy love; second marriages; second marriages with kids or no kids; arranged love; secret love between monks and between nuns; and love between someone who has been abused and someone who has been abandoned; and so much more. And the thing is that each one of these love has their own unique story.
When you’re in your 20’s versus when you’re 50 or between a 50 year old and 20 year old. They have different documents. They have different beliefs. So, what you want to do is really capture that particular story and show the officer and yes they are going to have prejudice against unconventional type relationships but as long as immigration allows for one person to petition another person based on their marital relationship with the other person and that their relationship is real and genuine, then it covers all aspects of love.
And so hopefully with these success stories, you’ll be able to see how we’re able to look at each relationship and find the core thing and to help them with the case. And hopefully they’ll help you with your own case. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to us.
Talk to you later. Bye-bye.
