When an immigrant receives their legal permanent resident status, it is only a conditional card valid for two years. A Petition To Remove Conditions of Residence enables him or her to remove the conditional clause and obtain the approval for permanent residency. However, any mistake in the filling of the form and inability to handle issues cropping up during the approval may lead to deportation proceedings.
What is a Conditional Green Card?
Foreigners or those on immigrant visas married to US citizens or lawful permanent residents for less than two years are given conditional resident status. The US green cards issued to them is valid for two years from the day of issuance. However, these green cards are non-renewable and such persons are likely to be deported unless they apply to become permanent residents.
According to the US immigration regulations, conditional residents must apply for permanent residence status within 90 days of their conditional green card expiration. The application can also include a child allowed conditional resident status along with you. The failure to do so makes them liable for removal from the country.
A Petition To Remove Conditions of Residence is the only process of removing conditions on residence so that you can prevent deportation and stay in the United States permanently. Consulting an immigration attorney in Houston is good advice to avoid any mistake, delay, documentation errors and to finalize your permanent resident process.
