Filing Calculator for Form I-751 (Filing Jointly with Your Spouse)

If we granted you conditional permanent resident status through marriage to a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident, use Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence, to file for the removal of those conditions.

When to File Your Form I-751

If Then
You are filing with your U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident spouse (called “filing jointly”). You must file your Form I-751 during the 90-day period immediately before your conditional residence expires.
You were not included in your parent’s petition and are filing a separate joint petition with your U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident stepparent. You may file at any time before your conditional permanent resident status expires.

What Happens if You File Too Early

We will reject your Form I-751 if you file more than 90 days before the date your conditional residence expires unless you file:

  • Individually; or
  • With a request that we waive the joint filing requirement.
