Form I-751: Lifting Conditions on a Green Card
Green Card Lawyers at Yekrangi & Associates Can Guide You
Many individuals who obtain a green card through marriage will receive a conditional green card. These are most commonly given if your marriage was less than two years old at the time you obtained your green card. The conditions on your green card are added as a secondary provision against fraudulent marriages. To lift the conditions on your green card you will need to show eligibility and a bona fide marriage. This entails illustrating that you did not engage in marriage solely to procure immigrant benefits.
Keep Track of Green Card Expiration
To lift the conditions on your green card, Form I-751 must be filed within 90 days of the expiration date of your conditional resident card. Once your conditions on your green card have been lifted, you will have lawful permanent status and a ten-year green card.
Form I-751 requires you to illustrate that your marriage to your spouse is in fact a bona fide marriage. If you are no longer with your spouses at the time of filing the lifting of conditions, you can still be eligible to apply for your permanent green card. Yet, keep in mind that the burden to prove a bona fide marriage will be even more difficult if you and your spouse are no longer together.
If you fail to file your I-751 in a timely manner, your conditional residency will automatically terminate, and you will be out of status. It is also possible that you will be placed into removal proceedings for failing to comply.
