If you are a Lawful Permanent Resident and were granted a green card that was only good for two years, you are required to file for removal of conditions using USCIS form I-751 together with evidence of the ongoing bona fides (legitimacy) of your marriage to your US citizen or Lawful Permanent Resident spouse. This regulation was put into place due to the high occurrence of marriage fraud in the immigration petition process. USCIS and the US government want to ensure that you did not enter into your marriage solely for purpose of obtaining immigration benefits or a green card. The penalties for marriage fraud are severe and include prison and huge fines.
The current administration and climate surrounding immigration in the US unfortunately has subjected applicants for removal of conditions to more strict and stringent vetting and processing times are taking much longer than ever.
The process for removing conditions and obtaining a permanent or ten-year green card can be difficult, confusing and daunting. At the Law Offices of Lemuel A. Carlos PLLC we are well-versed and experienced in the requirements to prove the ongoing validity and legitimacy or your marriage.
