    Approved Form I-751 Request for more evidence to remove conditions on Green card

    Hello everyone!
    I wanted to share my success in removing conditions on my green card, hoping that it will help someone who is going through that process.
    I am from France and met my husband here. We married in August 2012, and applied for my adjustment of status in September 2012. We had our immigration interview in February 2013 and I received my 2 year conditional green card in March 2013.
    In December 2014, 3 months before the 2 year green card expired, we filed form I-751 and sent it with the following supporting documents:
    $590 fee required,
    front and back copies of my green card,
    2013 Joint tax return copy (only 5 pages),
    voided check of our joint checking account,
    copies of both our driving licenses
    2 affidavits from friends
    photos of us on vacation, doing activities etc.
    copies of our joint car insurance, health insurance and life insurance,
    copies of my professional licenses with our current living address.

    In January 2015, we received a letter (I-751 receipt notice) notifying us that my green card was being extended for 1 more year, and stating that we will get an appointment for biometrics to be taken. In February 2015, I went and got my biometrics taken. Then we anxiously waited for a response. We received a notice in September 2015 that our case file was being transferred from the Vermont service center to the California service center.
    Then at the end of September, we received a Request for more Evidence letter, asking for more proof that our marriage was bona fide. They said the documentation we requested was insufficient because:
    The 2013 tax returns submitted were incomplete, they did not include all required schedules, statements, and W2 records.
    The bank check submitted did not include the transaction pages
    The CPR submitted little evidence to support comingling of assets
    The CPR submitted no evidence of joint tenancy at a common residence

    Then they went on to list exemples of documents we could send. In response, we sent them the following additional documents:
    • Copy of 2013 and 2014 jointly filed U.S. federal and state tax return transcripts
    • Copy of our joint bank checking account statements for years 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015
    • Copy of our joint apartment leases at our current residence for years 2013, 2014, 2015
    • Copy of credit card bills and utility bill (2013-2015) addressed to us at our current residence
    • Copy of 2 of my earning statements (in 2014 and 2015) and a notice from my employer addressed to me at our current residence.
    • Copy of my professional licenses with our current address of residence
    • Copy of both our drivers licenses with our current address of residence
    • Copies of our joint AAA membership addressed to me at our current residence
    • Copies of the first 3 pages of our joint car insurance policy for year 2015-2016 addressed to both of us at our current residence
    • Copy of a notice from our current joint Life insurance company (2014), addressed to me at our current residence
    • Copy of a statement from our joint health insurance policy, addressed to me at our current residence
    • Copy of our flight information for our vacation to California in August 2013 in occasion of our 1st year anniversary
    • Copies of our plane tickets and hotel reservations to our spring break vacation to Las Vegas in April 2015
    • Copy of a mailed envelope by our friends, addressed to us in February 2015
    • Copies of 2 letters from me to my husband on occasion of our first christmas together, and our wedding day.
    • A wedding ceremony program that was given to our friends and family on our wedding day
    • Copies of greeting cards given to my husband by me on occasion of his birthday and Valentine’s day
    • Photos taken during the course of our relationship from 2012 to 2015, (dates/places/occasions are on the back of each photo) with friends and family and during our trips together. (32 pics)

    As you can see, we tried to cover the whole span of our relationship (2012 to present), we did not have any bills in both of our names, but still provided enough important mail with either my name or his, addressed to us at our current address. The most important thing was to provide at least 2 proofs for each items they requested.

    Well, we sent that package to immigration on Monday October 5th 2015. 2 WEEKS later, today, October 19th 2015, we received our approval letter!! We will receive my 10 year green card within 60 days!!!!

    The process was a little scary and stressful at times, but we are so grateful that everything worked out!
    Good luck to everyone out there going through this process, we hope you find a similar happy ending!

    Merci for sharing! Very helpful.

    I will apply for the removal in Feb. '16. As it was with my initial GC, we provided SO MUCH evidence, it must have been overwhelming. I received my GC within 2 months after applying... I will hold the same regard to my next application. Send in any- and everything you've got. From what I can see, almost every couple is being told to provide more evidence after all.

    Glad it worked out well!

    I, too, am happy to report that the process had a happy ending for me! It took since June of last year (2015) until today (August 2016) to get my conditions removed, I still can't believe it

    Congratulations to everyone on this important milestone! In the coming days, I'll do my best to compile a timeline of events to help others involved in this process, as I am eternally grateful for all the helpful advice I've received on this forum.

    I receive a letter also few days ago, the letter said I have insufficient evident, for example, your 2013 and 2014 tax return do not include W-2 form, in the end of letter, list many documents can be used as evident. However, many document in the list I already submitted when I file the I751. The document I file was

    marry certificate
    copy of green card
    copy of drive license
    copy of car title jointed owned by both of us
    2013 and 2014 jointed tax return
    statement of joint credit card account
    statement of two jointed bank account
    copy of jointed water utility bill
    copy of jointed health insurance
    two affidavit letters

    I have an urgent question. I got my 2 year green card through marriage in 2013. I got divorce in 2015. Now my removal of conditional green card application was denied and they terminated my residency status. If I refile the case, meaning re-apply for removal of conditional GC again, can I get a legal working status again? I need to know if I can support myself for living while the case is pending. Please help~!

    Plus, is there any law saying that if a person is out of status in the U.S. longer than a period of time, they couldn't come back again for any reason for ?? years?
    I heard one lawyer said if a person over-stay in the U.S longer than 3 months, they can't re-enter for any reason for 1 year. But another lawyer said if over-staying longer than 6 month, they can't re-enter for 3 years. I have no idea which one is correct. Does anyone know?

    Many thanks,
    Rachel

If are an immigrant to the United States, what does Donald Trump’s victory mean for you? Specifically, what does a Trump win mean if you have a greencard.

What type of “greencard” do you have?

“Greencard” is not actually a legal term. Meaning that it is not precise and can mean more than one thing. Generally, when people use the term they mean one of three different things.

  • Lawful permanent residency.
  • A work permit.
  • Conditional lawful permanent residency.

Let’s look at each of those separately.

Lawful permanent residency

Usually when people say that they have a “greencard” they mean they have status as a lawful permanent resident. Will President Trump be able to take away your status as a lawful permanent resident (LPR)? Basically, no.

The paths to LPR status are created by congress. This is true you gained LPR status through Adjustment of Status (the I-485) or through an immigrant visa (DS-260). Because congress creates these rights the president cannot simply take them away.

If you have already completed the greencard process and are now an LPR, your status should be safe.

A work permit.

Sometimes when people use the term “greencard” they simply mean that they have some form of authorization to work in the United States. This presents a much broader question about how a Trump Presidency might impact you.
Take Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), for example. As we describe in more detail here, DACA was a program created by the Obama administration, not by congress. Since a president created the program, a Trump administration could choose to take it away. It is likely that President Trump will make it impossible to renew DACA, and he could even try to take work permits away from those who already have them.

If you have an employer-sponsored work permit – such as an H-1B – it is unlikely that a Trump Presidency will impact you in the foreseeable future. These employer-sponsored programs are created by congress, and it would likely take an act of congress to change your rights. It is unlikely that any major immigration bill, changing these or other immigration programs, will be passed anytime soon.

Conditional residency.

If you went through the marriage-based greencard process, you may have received a two-year conditional residency. This is done if your marriage was less then two years old when you gained status as an LPR. Conditional residents are required to file the I-751 petition in the 90-day window before their conditional status expires. Will a Trump presidency make it harder for you to get your I-751 petition approved? Probably not.
Like other examples above, the I-751 petition program was created by congress. President Trump, acting alone, cannot simply get rid of the program.

As with other programs, however, President Trump could impose stricter standards than are currently used. Because he will control the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), of which Citizenship and Immigration Services is a part, Trump could direct DHS to have tougher rules for the I-751 program.

Given Trump’s previous policy statements on immigration, it is unlikely that he would choose to target the conditional residency program. People filing I-751 petitions have gone through the legal marriage-based immigration process. It would be extraordinarily bizarre for Trump clamp down on this particular facet of immigration.
