CASE DETAILS AND NOTES

Petition To Remove Conditions On Residence Approved by USCIS

Foreign National client sought to remove the conditions on her “conditional” greencard in order to obtain a “permanent” or regular greencard in the United States. A greencard is the official document that gives a foreign national person permission to permanently live and work in the United States. If a foreign national person has been married to either a U.S. citizen or a Lawful Permanent Resident (“LPR”) (i.e., a greencard holder) for less than 2 years from the date his or her Greencard Application was filed (i.e., received by USCIS), the foreign national person will be initially granted just a temporary 2-year greencard called a “conditional” greencard. During the course of the conditional greencard period, the foreign national person must continue to prove that he or she entered into a bona fide, good faith marriage (i.e., a real marriage). A Petition To Remove Conditions On Residence requires a foreign national person to be able to prove that he or she is still in compliance with all U.S. immigration laws and is still eligible to be admitted as a Lawful Permanent Resident (“LPR”) of the United States. Mrs. Huff prepared the appropriate Forms and presented sufficient evidence to USCIS and was able to get our client’s Petition To Remove Conditions On Residence approved. This, in turn, granted our client with a permanent (i.e., a regular) greencard.
