We received another I-751 Approval without an interview. We represented this couple in obtaining the husband’s marriage-based green card in 2011. Because the marriage was less than two years old at the time of the adjustment of status, he was issued a conditional permanent resident card with a two year expiration date. When it came time to petition for the removal of conditions, we represented them again.
We provided USCIS with substantial evidence to show their relationship was still viable and entered into in good faith. We provided over a hundred pages of evidence. After only a few months, we received the approval notice for the I-751. Unlike the adjustment of status process in which USCIS must conduct an interview with the married couple, the I-751 process does not require an interview. If the USCIS officer charged with reviewing the I-751 is satisfied that the evidence proves good faith marriage, the officer can waive the interview and approve the case. If the officer remains unconvinced, s/he can schedule an interview.
Over the last 18 months, all of our joint I-751 petitions have been granted without an interview. If your conditional permanent residency is expiring in the next six months, contact Nelson & Nuñez to schedule a consultation. Nelson & Nuñez will help you understand the process and assess how we can help you.
