Green card

If you obtained your green card through marriage to a US Citizen within the first 2 years of your union, you likely have a conditional 2-year green card. To transition to a 10-year permanent green card, filing USCIS Form I-751, the Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence, is crucial.

Understanding USCIS Form I-751

What is Form I-751?

Form I-751 is a vital document for conditional permanent residents seeking a permanent 10-year green card. It’s a necessary step to remove conditions on residence obtained through marriage to a US citizen.

Why is it Required?

A conditional green card necessitates the filing of Form I-751 to obtain permanent residency status. This process ensures that the marriage was genuine and not solely for immigration purposes.
