What are the criteria to have the conditions on my green card/resident status removed?

Generally, you may apply to remove your conditions on permanent residence if you:

● Are still married to the same U.S. citizen or permanent resident after 2 years. You may include your children in your application if they received their conditional-resident status either at the same time or within 90 days as you did;
● Are a child and, for a valid reason, cannot be included in your parents’ application;
Are a widow or widower who entered into your marriage in good faith;
● Entered into a marriage in good faith, but the marriage ended through divorce or annulment; or
● Entered into a marriage in good faith, but either you or your child were battered or subjected to extreme hardship by your U.S.-citizen or permanent-resident spouse.
