directly from USCIS or downloaded from
the continuing spirit of detecting visa fraud, USCIS did not provide
your Spouse with permission to remain a permanent resident of the U.S..
Instead only Conditional Residency (in effect a temporary right to live
in USA) was granted. After two years, if the two of you are
still a married couple, the assumption is that
the relationship really is genuine. So at this point your Spouse's
status can be
upgraded from that of Conditional (temporary) resident to a permanent
you and your spouse are required to together file
a petition, Form
I-751, Petition to Remove the Conditions on Residence,
during the 90-day period immediately before the second anniversary of
the date your spouse was granted conditional permanent residence.
Children who were admitted as conditional permanent residents with your spouse may be included in the joint I-751 petition to remove the conditions.
