    Lawyer agrees

    Answered . You say "getting a green card" if you don't have a legal permanent resident card or a conditional and your still in the process your case will be terminated. If you have conditional then you can file I-751 on your own behalf. If you hold a legal permanent resident card you will be fine.

    Answered . It depends. Do you have a conditional green card already or have you not yet filed? if you are conditional you can file for a good faith waiver by yourself. You should speak to an attorney in either case as you may have options available to you even if you have not yet filed/received your green card.
