If you received your green card through marriage to a US Citizen within the first 2 years of your marriage, you will receive a conditional 2-year green card. At the end of the 2-year green card, you must file USCIS Form I-751 Removal of Conditions to receive a 10-year permanent green card. Unfortunately, sometimes marriages end in divorce and the foreign national spouse is left to file USCIS Form I-751 on their own merits. With a divorce, the process can get messy. We have helped many individuals obtain a permanent 10-year green card after divorce and even a Notice of Intent to Terminate.
