Helping Immigrants Remove Conditions On Residence


There are a great many benefits to obtaining permanent residence status. Such status allows for you to live with your family and work in the United States. It provides you with a sense of security and alleviates concerns that you will at some point have to leave the country.

Your permanent residence status may be conditional if based upon marriage to a US citizen, however, and without removal of such conditions you may lose your permanent residency status at some point. For this reason, it is important to have knowledgeable legal representation on your side. As an experienced Pittsburgh family immigration attorney, I will provide personalized services concerning your case. I will walk you through the process, and I will take work toward the removal of such conditions quickly and effectively.

Removal Of Conditions On Residence For A Spouse

If you have been married less than two years when your spouse is granted a green card, your spouse will receive permanent resident status on a conditional basis. To remove such conditions, you and your spouse will need to file a joint petition for removal.

It is important to understand the timelines regarding the removal of these conditions. The failure to abide by such timelines can result in severe consequences. You must apply to remove conditional status within the 90-day period before the second anniversary of the award date of your spouse's conditional legal permanent resident status. A failure to file during this period could result in termination of your spouse's permanent residence in the United States.

I will dedicate myself to preparing the best possible petition for your case. I understand how to put together the type of petition that will often avoid requests for additional evidence and the need of an interview with immigration officials. In the event there is an interview scheduled, I will help you prepare and guide you through the interview process.

Removal Of Conditions For A Divorced Spouse

A divorce can create complications when it comes to removal of conditions, but this does not mean that such removal is impossible. A permanent resident, entering the marriage in good faith but who later faces divorce, will be eligible on his or her own to apply to remove the conditions on residence.

Having provided this type representation for over a decade, I understand the requirements for demonstrating good faith, the deadlines involved, and the documentation needed to help gain approval and have the conditions removed.
