We filed the I-751 jointly during the 90-day window. Soon after, we received the receipt notice which extended our client’s conditional resident status for one year while she waited for a decision. We included substantial evidence to show the couple’s marriage was entered into in good faith and not to circumvent the immigration laws of the United States. We included travel itineraries, car loan documents and lease agreements among other things. The packet of evidence was over 100 pages.
USCIS was satisfied that we met the burden of proof, and they approved the case approximately 4 months after filing. USCIS did not call for an interview.
The client was very pleased with the outcome, and is happy that she will be able to stay in the United States as a permanent resident indefinitely. She plans to naturalize as soon as she is eligible later this year.
If you are a conditional resident and need to file the I-751 petition, contact The Nunez Firm to schedule a consultation with managing attorney Jay Nunez. Every year we help many conditional residents obtain their ten-year green card either through joint petitions or based on one of the waivers (domestic violence, extreme hardship, or good faith marriage).
