If the citizen spouse does not wish to have the CR green card holder conditions removed, (due to marital abuse, infidelity, etc.) and thereby does not pay the necessary fees, can legal action be taken against that spouse? Also, if CR spouse cannot afford legal representation to remove conditions, can free legal aid be provided? If the CR spouse uses a waiver, are fees still payable to be able to remove the conditions?
If they refuse to file to remove your conditions, there are ways in which you can petition on your own. You should consult an immigration lawyer. Many of us offer consultations at little or no charge. Good luck.

The person filing a petition to remove conditions on residency has to pay the USCIS filing fee. You may file this on your own or retain an attorney in this case but no free legal aid may be available, unless you find a local community organization who provides assistance in such matters.
