Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence, is a U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) form used by conditional permanent residents to remove the conditions on their residence. Conditional permanent residents are granted permanent residence for a two-year period, typically if it was a marriage-based green card. After the two-year period, they must file Form I-751 to remove the conditions on their residence and become lawful permanent residents. A person who received a green card by marrying a U.S. citizen, and divorces when the marriage was less than 2 years old at the time of approval, can file I-751 Waiver of Joint Filing.
An I-751 waiver of joint filing is a type of waiver that allows a conditional permanent resident to remove the conditions on their residence without filing Form I-751 jointly with their U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident spouse.
There are four types of situations where an I-751 waiver of a joint filing would be allowed:
If you are eligible for an I-751 waiver for joint filing, you can file Form I-751 on your own. You do not need to file Form I-751 jointly with your spouse.
If you are considering filing an I-751 waiver for joint filing, it is important to speak with an immigration attorney to discuss your specific situation. An immigration attorney can help you understand your options and make sure that your petition is filed correctly.
