Removal of conditions (I-751), explained: married, separated or divorced

Removal of conditions (I-751), explained: married, separated or divorced

The I-751 petition to remove conditions must be filed by every conditional resident. Otherwise, USCIS will terminate your conditional residence and refer the case to immigration court to begin deportation proceedings. In this video I discuss some practical considerations for removing conditions, including situations where you are no longer residing with or married to your spouse/ex-spouse. If you need assistance with an I-751 or other immigration matter, please schedule a consultation with me so that I can assist you.

  1. I applied for my i-751 in November 2020, but still waiting, the process has been extended from 18 months to 26 months now, I go on tour a lot as part of my job and that includes travel to Canada and Mexico, meaning I need either the new greencard or a 797 notice for extension since the most updated one I have is only until January 2023. Calling to USCIS doesn’t help at all. I keep checking my status on my account online and the last update was in January 2022 where they took my fingerprints.
    We are still married and still living in the same residence, nothing has changed on our end.
    Is there anything else I could do?

  2. I’m waiting for my I751 decision. It’s been on biometrics for almost 2 years. My marriage didn’t work and now I’m getting divorced. Is this going to delay my case? I’m really tired of waiting. USCIS is taking way too long.
