What is the I-751 Petition to Remove Conditions on Residency?
The I-751 petition is used by a conditional resident who obtained status through marriage, to request that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) remove the conditions on his or her residence.
What is conditional residency?
For marriage-based beneficiaries, the length of initial Legal Permanent Residency (LPR) is usually determined by the length of the marriage. LPRs who have been married for more than 2 years at the time of their initial filing normally receive 10-year cards. Those who have been married for less than 2 years at the time of filing receive conditional residency. These conditions require an additional filing to normalize to longer-term Legal Permanent Resident status. The I-751 is the vehicle for this petition.
How and when do I apply for the I-751 petition?
