Conditional permanent residents who entered the U.S. on a K-1 visa or through marriage to a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident are given a lawful permanent residence card that is conditional and only valid for two years.
This condition must be removed before the conditional residence card expires. Otherwise, the lawful permanent resident will fall out of status, which can result in serious immigration consequences.
The process of removing this condition can sound simple on its face, but those who apply must be certain to submit all the required supporting documents to support their request to remove the condition. Consulting an experienced attorney can take the guesswork out of this process.
