Remove Conditions on My Status Based on Marriage

Woman and man looking at paper  and smiling.

Your conditional permanent resident status is only valid for two years and cannot be renewed if you:

  • Received your conditional permanent resident status through marriage to a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident; or
  • Were admitted to the United States as a fiancé(e) of a U.S. citizen and then married the U.S. citizen.

You must file a petition to remove the conditions on your permanent resident status or risk losing your lawful status.
