We just received the news that my client’s I-751 was approved and the conditions were removed from his permanent resident status. The couple married in 2004. In 2005, his green card was approved based on his marriage to a United States Citizen.
As is the case with any newly married couple in their situation, he was granted a green card on a conditional basis meaning the couple was required to file an I-751 two years after the green card was approved. The I-751 is generally accompanied by evidence that the marriage was entered in good faith. The couple filed the I-751 on time in 2007. They included evidence such as joint bank account information, joint asset ownership documents, lease agreements and insurance information among other things.
They attended an interview with a USCIS officer in 2007 to answer questions about their marriage. Since that interview, they heard nothing from USCIS regarding a decision on their joint I-751 petition. Earlier this year, they retained The Nunez Firm to look into the status of their case and the reason for the delays. After writing several letters and meeting with USCIS information officers and supervisors, we just received the good news that their I-751 was approved.
The Orange County couple was extremely happy, and the husband is looking forward to applying for naturalization as a United States citizen.
