Conditional Permanent Residence

Conditional Permanent Residence is only valid for two years.  A permanent resident must file a petition to remove the condition within ninety days before your conditional residence expires. If your petition is approved, you will receive a new Green Card, valid for ten years.

Requirements for Removing Conditions:

  • Green card based on marriage: you must file a petition to remove the conditions of residence, including dependent children who acquired conditional resident status on the same day. Otherwise, dependent children must file a petition separately.
  • Green card for entrepreneurs: you must file a petition to remove conditions on permanent resident status.
