Removing Conditions on Residence: Securing Permanent Status in the United States

Welcome to the “Removing Conditions on Residence” page at The Ahluwalia Firm. If you are a conditional permanent resident in the United States and are seeking to remove the conditions on your green card to obtain permanent status, understanding the process is essential. Our team of immigration attorneys specializes in assisting individuals and families in navigating the complex journey of removing conditions on residence.

Understanding the Removal of Conditions Process

Conditional permanent residency is typically granted to individuals who have obtained their green cards through marriage to a U.S. citizen or permanent resident, or through entrepreneurship or investment in the United States. To remove the conditions on your residence and secure permanent status, you will generally follow these steps:

Eligibility Assessment: Confirming your eligibility to apply for the removal of conditions, which typically involves demonstrating that you entered into a legitimate marriage or fulfilled the requirements of your qualifying investment or entrepreneurship program.

Form I-751 or I-829: Filing Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence (marriage-based), or Form I-829, Petition by Entrepreneur to Remove Conditions (investment-based), with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).

Supporting Documentation: Submitting supporting documentation that demonstrates the legitimacy of your marriage or compliance with investment or entrepreneurship requirements.

Biometrics Appointment: Attending a biometrics appointment for fingerprinting and photograph.

Interview (if required): If USCIS determines that an interview is necessary, you may be asked to attend an interview to answer questions and provide additional evidence.

Approval: Upon approval of your petition, you will receive a new green card without conditions, granting you permanent status in the United States.

Key Benefits of Removing Conditions on Residence

Removing conditions on residence offers several advantages for conditional permanent residents:

Permanent Status: Successful removal of conditions grants permanent residency (green card) in the United States, providing long-term stability and security.

Freedom to Work and Travel: As a permanent resident, you have the freedom to work, travel, and live in the U.S. without the limitations of conditional status.

Path to Citizenship: Permanent residency is often a stepping stone to becoming a U.S. citizen, should you choose to pursue naturalization in the future.

Dear Mr. Ahluwalia, I would like to thank you for all your help with Dr. xxx case. She and I were very impressed with your services and the professionalism that you showed both of us.
