Self petition using the I-751 as a waiver
You can self-petition now as you are already divorced. It is important to show that the marriage was a bona fide marriage when it was entered into, but as indicated you can self-petition to remove the conditions on your residence based on a divorce. There can be any reason for the divorce; a show of abuse is not required.
You can call our law firm at 212-268-3580 during business hours, or email firstname.lastname@example.org for guidance.
My colleagues are correct, you need to file an I-751 waiver.
