I would like to know if you can apply for removal of conditions from conditional green card if its two years of marriage or does the person has to wait 90 days prior to expiration to apply for removal of conditions?

  1. Best answer

    When removing conditions from a resident card obtained thru marriage to a U.S. Citizen, the petition must be filed during that 90 day window prior to the expiration of the card. In other words, 90 days from the expiration of the card, not your wedding anniversary date. I hope the above information is helpful.
