    Answered . If you are married and living together you should file together. Why would you exclude her?

    Answered . The law requires you to file jointly unless you have a good reason not to. Also, if your wife only has a conditional green card, not filing jointly now may create an issue relating to the bona fide nature of your marriage when the time comes for her to remove the condition.
