Wheaton Immigration Lawyer

Guiding You Through the Complex U.S. Immigration System

If you received a green card through marriage to a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident and you were married less than two years, you were probably only granted a two-year green card or what is called “conditional resident status.” When the two-year conditional period expires, your status ends. You could become subject to removal from the U.S. once your status expires.

To avoid losing status and being put in removal proceedings, you must file a petition to remove the conditions of your green card with USCIS. If the petition is approved, you will be granted a ten-year green card.

The Wheaton immigration lawyers at Portner & Shure, P.A. can assist you with the process and help you avoid any negative immigration consequences. We have been representing clients throughout Montgomery County and all of Maryland for over 25 years. Learn how we can assist you with your immigration matter today.

Contact us online or call (855) 954-4141 to request a private consultation with one of our attorneys.

How to File a Petition for Removal of Conditions

The Petition to Remove Conditions on your green card should be jointly filed with your spouse and must be filed within the 90-day period before your conditional green card expires. The purpose of this petition is to prove to immigration services that the marriage is ongoing and was entered into in good faith.

In circumstances where the marriage has ended due to divorce or death, or if you were subjected to extreme cruelty by your spouse, you can still file a petition for removal of conditions if you can still prove that you entered into the marriage in good faith. Our Wheaton immigration lawyers are very knowledgeable in these circumstances, as well.

Why You Need an Immigration Attorney

If the petition is poorly prepared, it can delay the process and could even create substantial immigration problems. The key to filing a successful petition is to ensure that sufficient evidence is submitted. Our experienced Wheaton immigration lawyers can help ensure that you have submitted sufficient documents to maximize your chances of success with you petition.

If you have questions about removing conditions from your green card, please contact our office now. Portner & Shure, P.A. is here to guide you through his process.
