People ask me, when do they need to renew their 2-year green card? That’s the conditional card that you got through marriage. That card will be good for two years, but it’s important to see on the card that it’s going to expire at a certain period of time. You have to file the 751, which is the petition to remove the condition, within 90 days of the date of the expiration. You can do it on the first day of that 90-day period, or you can do it on the 89th day of that 90-day period, but you have that three-month window to apply for your 751.
If you have a lawyer, hopefully, your lawyer will contact you at least four to five months before the 751 is due, or usually, Immigration will also send you a letter reminding you that you need to file your 751. If you forget to do that, then Immigration, at some point, generally that four months after the expiration, will terminate your status and could very well put you into removal proceedings. Don’t ignore that expiration date, and don’t take it for granted. Make sure to file your 751 timely.
If you have questions about filing a 751, please contact my office, and I’d be happy to discuss your situation with you.
