Removal of Conditions Attorney in Fort Myers
Helping LPRs Avoid Removal Proceedings
If you were married less than two years before you acquired your lawful permanent residence (your green card), U.S. immigration services will grant you a conditional residency that is only valid for two years instead of the 10 years that a permanent residence provides. 90 days before the two years are up, you must apply to remove the conditions or risk having your conditional residency expire and be placed in removal proceedings (deportation). To successfully remove the conditions, you must prove once again that your marriage is bona fide.
Hurtado Immigration Law Firm can assist you with this process. We understand how stressful it can be to face removal proceedings, so we strive to handle the legal legwork on your behalf.
Removal of Conditions for Separated Spouses
In some cases, you may be separated or even divorced from the spouse who petitioned the residency for you. You may still be able to apply to remove the conditions if you can successfully waive the requirement that the removal of conditions is filed jointly with your petitioning spouse. For example, if you were a victim of domestic violence, you will be able to waive the requirement to file jointly.
Any children included in the conditional residency must file a separate application to remove their conditions. The filing of the application to remove conditions will extend your conditional residency for 12 months while your case is pending.
Hurtado Immigration Law Firm is here to help you with the process of removing conditions so that you can avoid removal proceedings and remain in the U.S.
