The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) issues marriage-based conditional permanent residency via conditional green cards to those people whose permanent residency is based on a marriage that is less than two years old (on the day of issue). This conditional status is based on the couple’s need to prove the legal legitimacy of their marriage – proving that it is not an attempt to circumvent the nation’s immigration laws. If you have questions or concerns about your marriage and permanent residency, reach out to an experienced California immigration lawyer.
Your conditional green card amounts to a two-year probation period in which you and your spouse will compile a record of your marriage. Toward the end of your two-year conditional status, you will file a Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence in support of your legal marriage. Failure to file properly leads to the automatic loss of conditional permanent resident status on the date of your conditional green card’s expiration.
Those eligible to have the conditions on permanent residence removed include the following:
The kind of evidence you typically need to demonstrate to the U.S government that your marriage is bona fide (and not green card fraud) include, but is not limited to:
Additionally, USCIS may require both of you to attend an interview prior to obtaining your Application for the Removal of Conditions.

If you have decided a divorce is the best route for you, I highly recommend working with Levi and his team. Calm and collected, Levi will guide you through the process. His goal is to work strategically and methodically to get you the best outcome. He does not rush you into options or to settle on things you are unsure or uncomfortable with. He also does not drag out the process any longer than it needs to be. His support team (call scheduling, payment) are responsive and helpful.

Patricia has been so helpful and provided excellent service. My husband and I are so grateful for all the help she has provided to help me immigrate to the United States. We really could not have gotten through it without her help. A big thank you to Patricia\'s assistant, Ingrid as well for always being prompt with responses and helping us get all the paperwork ready at each stage. I highly recommend Patricia for anyone who needs immigration help.
Thank you Miranda and team for the excellent service provided. Miranda is a compassionate, understating, extremely knowledgeable and professional attorney. Her team was always on top of everything making my legal process less stressful. I could never thank Miranda and her assistant Ingrid for holding my hand throughout this difficult process (literally). Miranda is one of the BEST immigration lawyers ever! I would definitely recommend her.
They represented my custody case and handled it like it is their own case and they are best in Monterey County.
