I-751, REMOVAL OF CONDITIONS
When an individual is granted lawful permanent residency based on a marriage to a U.S. Citizen or lawful permanent resident (Green Card), in which the marriage was less than two-year-old on the day they were granted their permanent resident status, the beneficiary is given a conditional resident status.
90 days prior to the two-year anniversary of your conditional residency, one must apply to remove the condition on their permanent residency. Once this condition is removed, their status will be changed to that of a lawful permanent resident. However, it is very important that the application to have the condition removed on their resident status is filed during the allotted time.
Individuals are eligible to remove the condition on their residency if they are:
- still married to the same U.S. citizen or permanent resident after the two-year period
- widowed and entered into their marriage in good faith\
- entered a marriage in good faith that has now ended in divorce or annulment, or
- entered into a marriage in good faith but either the applicant or their child was the subject of a battery or abuse by their U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident spouse.
Due to the time-sensitive nature of the removal of a condition, it is highly recommended that you contact an immigration attorney to ensure you properly file to remove the condition within the allotted time.
