Husband would like to file for permant residency. Can he file without the form without me? If so, what other documents are needed to file this form?
Great question. Talk to your immigration attorney about it. Good luck to you and your husband.
This answer is for general purposes only and does not establish an attorney-client relationship.
Form I-751 removes conditional status of permanent residency. It is possible for a spouse to file an I-751 without the cooperation of the other spouse, however, the person will need to apply for a waiver. It would be best to consult with a reputable immigration attorney to assist with this.

You should not rely on this response in taking or forgoing action in your circumstances without discussing this matter with an attorney. If we had the opportunity to ask you sufficient questions and review relevant documents so that we were satisfied we had all of the relevant facts and circumstances, our response might differ significantly.

There are very specific deadlines for filing a lawsuit, replying to a lawsuit filed against you, or taking other action in order to preserve your legal rights.

The attorney answering this question is licensed in Illinois only.
It would depend on the circumstances of the case.
Posssible but not under normal filing, as such it is advisable to retain an immigration.
I751 is for someone already granted conditional permanent residence, and then needs to file to remove the conditions, as opposed to someone who does not yet have permanent residence. The I751 petition is made for a joint filing (with USC spouse) or for a waiver of the joint filing, based on one of the qualifying reasons. These are complex cases and should be reviewed with an immigration attorney.
