    Question Remove Conditions of Green Card

    Hi guys, my conditional green card expires on 01/22/2021. I married an American citizen a few years ago and we're still married. I have a few questions. Please help out if you can. And don't feel obliged to answer all of them. Any responses are much appreciated! Thank you!

    1. The earliest date we need to joint file i-751 is 10/22/2020, correct?
    2. Besides joint-filing i-751, are there other forms/documents are required to file together?
    3. Besides required documents to file, what other supporting documents would you recommend us to file in your experiences? Our joint bank account statement? W2? Tax returns? etc?
    4. The total filing fee is $680. One check of $595 for i-751 and another check of $85 for a biometric fee, correct?
    5. I learned that the interview could be waived by USCIS and that's certainly up to them. But in your experiences, what chances do you think they'd let you skip the interview? If you didn't have to do the interview, what documents did you file?
    6. How long does it take usually for them to issue you the permanent green card? When it's pending, will they issue you something temporary so that you can continue living and working in the US?
    7. Any other tips/suggestions you have?

    Correct, you should apply 90 days before it the two years are up. They won't take it earlier, but you'd be best to not wait longer, either. Understand that it takes way more than 90 days to process this.

    Did you read the instructions: https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/...i-751instr.pdf

    See the part about "What Initial Evidence is Required." It lists the kinds of stuff they are looking for. Leases, deeds, bank acocunts, etc.. that have BOTH YOUR NAMES on it are indications you are indeed married. If you had children, birth certificates for them. Your W-2 is largely meaningless, but a jointly filed tax return is important. You'll need two people to make sworn affidavits about your marriage. The more stuff you can show that shows you're really married, the better.

    Your fee calculation looks right.

    They can request more evidence, if they have doubts. If they find the evidence compelling, they can skip the interview.

    You can read this policy memorandum for more information: https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/...form-I-751.pdf
