Conditional green card – what do you need to know about it?



To begin with, it should be pointed out that a conditional type of green card is given to those people who applied for conditional permanent residentship. Such a card is valid for just two years precisely and after it expires you can’t renew it – only ask for the conditions removal. You need to file a proper petition before your current card expires, preferably 90 days prior to the expiration date.

There are two types of forms to file in order for the conditions to be removed from the card. First one is Form I-751, if you are married to an American citizen or permanent resident this is the one you need to use, keep it in mind that this is a joint type of petition so that your spouse needs to do the same. However, if you were granted conditional residence due to the financial investment in the USA then you need a Form I-829 to file.

In case the conditions have been removed successfully then you will become a lawful resident, your children as well in case they undergo the very same process. Such a lawful resident is given a ten-year green card however even after the card expires your permanent status won’t.

Keep it in mind, in case you do not apply for either form, once you reach the second anniversary the conditional permanent resident status will be lost. Deportation is the aftermath.

I wanted to get political asylum in the United States, but I realized that it was not so easy. I was ready for the fact that I would have to collect a whole bunch of documents and answer many questions, but this did not stop me. The only obstacle for me was a complete lack of understanding where to start. I accidentally found Usa-immigrations.com on the Internet. All the information you need is there. I easily found and downloaded the form I needed, and also learned the entire list of required documents.

A very useful site for those who want to leave for America and do not know what documents need to be collected and how to arrange everything correctly. I had to face such a problem and I was able to solve it thanks to the site Usa-immigrations.com. All the information gathered here is not only useful, but also very necessary. In addition, the site staff constantly update it, so it is absolutely reliable.

It is not an easy task to issue documents to travel to the USA. Even if you know their entire list, that's not all. To obtain a visa, you must fill out the forms and if even a minor mistake is made, they will be returned to you. At Usa-immigrations.com there is more than a list of documents and forms that can be easily downloaded. Each form is accompanied by detailed instructions on how to fill it out correctly. It is very convenient. I liked the site very much, it is simple and easy to use.

I have been living in America with my family for a long time and am a citizen of this country. I decided to lure my mother to her. I began to find out what documents are needed for this. One friend advised the site Usa-immigrations.com, said that it had all the necessary information. Indeed, here I found out what documents are required. I needed to complete a Form I-130. I also found it on this site and downloaded it. Thanks to the instructions for filling it out, I was able to quickly complete everything and send the documents for consideration.
