What's involved in the Green Card Renewal process?

Overview 

When a green card is obtained through marriage and the marriage is less than two years old at the time of approval, the spouse receives a conditional green card. This conditional status is granted to prevent fraudulent marriages entered into solely for immigration benefits. To remove the conditions on residence, the couple must file Form I-751 (Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence) within the 90-day period before the conditional green card expires.

Eligibility Criteria

To be eligible to file Form I-751, the conditional resident must meet the following criteria:

• Married and Living Together: The conditional resident and their U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident spouse are still married and living together.

• Marriage Terminated: If the marriage has ended due to divorce, annulment, or the death of the U.S. citizen spouse, the conditional resident can still file Form I-751 but must request a waiver of the joint filing requirement.

• Good Faith Marriage: The marriage was entered into in good faith and not for the purpose of evading U.S. immigration laws.

Green Card Renewal Filing Process

 

1. Prepare Form I-751: The conditional resident and their spouse must prepare Form I-751. If the couple is no longer together or if the U.S. citizen spouse has passed away, the conditional resident can file individually and request a waiver.

2. Gather Supporting Documents: Collect evidence to prove that the marriage was entered into in good faith. This may include joint financial records, photographs, birth certificates of children born to the marriage, and affidavits from friends and family.

3. Submit Form I-751: File the completed Form I-751 along with the supporting documents and the required filing fee to the appropriate USCIS service center. Ensure the form is submitted within the 90-day period before the expiration of the conditional green card.

4. Biometrics Appointment: After filing, USCIS will schedule a biometrics appointment where the conditional resident will provide fingerprints, a photograph, and a signature.

5. Interview: In some cases, USCIS may require an interview to verify the information provided and the authenticity of the marriage. Both spouses must attend this interview if required.

6. Decision: USCIS will review the petition and supporting documents. If approved, the conditional status will be removed, and the conditional resident will receive a 10-year permanent resident card (green card). If denied, USCIS will explain the reasons, and the conditional resident may have the opportunity to appeal the decision or provide additional evidence.

Supporting Documentation

 

Evidence to support the petition may include:

Joint Bank Accounts: Statements showing shared financial responsibilities.

Joint Leases or Mortgages: Documents proving shared residence.

Insurance Policies: Policies naming both spouses as beneficiaries.

Birth Certificates of Children: If applicable, to show a family relationship.

Affidavits from Friends and Family: Written statements from individuals who can attest to the bona fides of the marriage.

Photographs: Photos from different periods of the marriage, including family gatherings and vacations.
