Removal of Conditional Residency

New York City Immigration Lawyer

You face deportation if you are a conditional permanent resident and do not remove your conditions within the legal time period. At Feiner & Lavy P.C., Attorneys at Law we don’t want to see this happen to you or your family. We work quickly and aggressively to prevent this situation from occurring and have over 4 decades of experience in helping individuals and families to retain their immigration status. A committed New York City immigration attorney from our firm can review your situation and will know what needs to be done in order to get the conditions to your permanent residency removed on time.

As a conditional permanent resident, you received a green card that is valid for 2 years. 90 days prior to your green card expiring, you must file a petition with the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to remove the conditions to being a permanent resident. If these conditions are not resolved, you will lose your status and be called before a removal hearing. In many cases, the condition to be removed has to do with marriage but it applies to those who gained residence as an entrepreneur or investor.

Our attorneys know how to get the conditions to your permanent residency removed, what information will need to be provided and the time frame in which it needs to be done. There are many complexities and barriers that need to be overcome. In some cases, a removal hearing will need to be favorably resolved or an appeal filed on your behalf. We are determined in our actions to get the conditions to your residency removed in the best manner possible.

Becoming a Permanent Resident

On marriage, your status was made conditional so that you can show you did not get married to evade the U.S. immigration laws. There are, however, specific USCIS requirements that must be met so that the conditions to permanent residency are removed. This can be made difficult if your marriage has ended, there is a battered spouse or children involved, or other marital problems. This is also where having an experienced attorney can help.

We can get your forms filed, represent you at any hearings and through any appeals that must be undertaken, all towards the goal of achieving permanent resident status without conditions.
