The application to Remove Conditions is used by conditional permanent residents that obtained status through marriage to request that the conditions on residence be removed and subsequently become lawful permanent residents. It’s important that conditional residents file the form on-time and with ample evidence to prove there is a good faith marriage. This petition removes conditions on residence and finalizes the permanent resident process. Failure to timely file the petition can severely impact your immigration status.
If your conditional green card is expiring within 90 days and your residence is based on your marriage or your parent’s marriage to a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, you must file to Remove Conditions.
Removal of Conditions is a joint application; that means that you and your spouse will file it with USCIS together. However, there are exceptions for conditional residents that want to request a waiver to the joint filing requirement. Filing with a waiver to remove the joint filing requirement may be necessary for individuals in an abusive relationship or divorce.
