Information

What are the government fees to remove conditions on a Green Card?

The following is a breakdown of the government fees typically associated with Form I-751:

  • USCIS filing fee: $595
  • Biometrics fee: $85

What is Form I-751

Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence, is used by conditional Green Card holders to get a regular Green Card. This form is used specifically for people who got a conditional Green Card based on a marriage to a U.S. citizen or permanent resident (Green Card holder).

A conditional Green Card expires after two years and at that time, the holder of the Green Card has to file for a regular Green Card using Form I-751 within 90 days of expiration.


Who has to remove the conditions on their Green Card?

The spouse who has a conditional Green Card has to file to remove the conditions on their permanent resident card within 90 days of that card's expiration.

Typically, the couple files jointly, but there are scenarios where the USCIS will waive joint filing and allow the spouse to file for a regular Green Card on their own. This is especially true if the spouse can show that they experienced undue hardship in their relationship.


How do I remove the conditions on my Green Card?

Removing the conditions on a Green Card is a relatively simple process involving the following steps:

  • Fill out form
  • Include supporting documentation and appropriate translations
  • Attend biometrics appointment (USCIS will contact you and let you know when to come in to an office for this appointment)
  • Attend an interview with a USCIS field officer (if required)

After those steps have been followed, the USCIS will then make a decision. A favorable decision will result in you receiving a new, non-conditional Green Card from the USCIS.


How long does it take to remove the conditions on my Green Card?

The USCIS' California Service Center estimates that it will take about six months for your request to remove conditions on your Green Card as of late 2014.
