Default Question about removing conditional GC status

Hi all,I'm a GC holder(UK citizen) in the US,and i have been here since
December 2002.I understand that the conditional status remains for 2 years
after entry,and then changes to unconditional providing i prove i am still
married and living in the US for those 2 years.Within the last 3 months of
that 2 year period,either they are supposed to contact me,or do i have to
contact them? Its one or the other but i cant remember which.

thanks in advance for any help
Andrew

The responsibility is all yours. CIS will not contact you. You are required to complete form I-751 and submit as much evidence of the continuing social and financial viability of your marriage as requested in the instructions. You file at the service center for your jurisdiction. The CIS will in turn mail you a NOA (I-797) extending your green card privileges for another year.

Thanks for the reply,i've ordered my form.You say that they will mail an
extension for 1 year.Is that just a temporary thing that they do while they
are working on my case to remove conditional status?

The NOA extending your I-551 card for a year is standard issue when you submit an I-751. If your case takes longer than a year to adjudicate (and many do), you can go in and get a temp stamp for employment or travel reasons.

You can check the processing times for the various service centers on the USCIS web page. You can also download the I-751 directly without having to order it. Don't forget too, that you can apply 90 days before your 2-yr card expires.

Good luck.

When was your AOS approved? You have to file the I-751 in the 90 day
window PRIOR to the 2nd year anniversary of the AOS approval. So if
what you are saying is that you had your initial green card was
approved in December 1, 2002...then your 90 day window is
September--November, 2004....thus you better get hopping!

You don't want to miss that deadline.

Yes. By the way, you don't have to wait for the forms; you should be able
to download them from the USCIS Web site at
http://uscis.gov/graphics/formsfee/forms/i-751.htm
