Hello everyone, I sent my I-751 form and documents but I got it back with the remark
that I would not have conditional residency and therefore do not need to file this
form. I don't know what went wrong, since I had to file it before the 2 year
anniversary of my wedding. Also, my resident card is expired in February. I sent
another letter immediately-- 2 months ago. I will tavel to Peru next week. I know
Iwon't have problems leaving the US, but as what do I return? (with my passport, is
it too late to go to the INS office and get a stamp ?) Should I expect any problems?
What do I need to take with me?

Anyone here who knows about the Los Angeles INS office downtown...

Had anyone had this type of problem before, that INS returned forms etc. with the
remark it does not need to be filed...

What could have happened?

Any help is appreciated! Thanks in advance, Claudia

You entered on a K1 visa, filed the I-485 and had that approved already?

You have to file the I-751 before the 2 year anniversary of being granted conditional
permanent residence, NOT your wedding anniversary! Depending on how long it took for
the 485 to be approved, it could be a great deal later than your wedding anniversary.
That may be why they returned the application; however, the comment that you won't
have conditional residency is odd - unless your I-485 is still pending...

No you apparently do not know when to send it as per your post:

The conditional two year green card must be renewed 90 days before its expiration. Not 90 days before your second wedding anniversary. Since you state your card expired in February (assuming you meant Feb. 2001 not Feb. 2002) then you have relinquished your status as permanent resident by not filing in time.

If, however, you did mean February, 2002 then you are filing too early. And perhaps this is the problem since your second wedding anniversary would be before the expiration of the two year conditional green card and not after as you can't adjust status without having been married first.

Perhaps, also your English is not good enough yet to fully explain your situation, i.e. you wrote "I got it back with the remark that I would not have conditional residency and therefore do not need to file this form. I don't know what went wrong" This sentence does not make much sense unless we try to come up with a scenario for your remark.

Do you mean they wrote that you "do not have conditional residency"?

Please try again to post a little clearer and the newsgroup would be happy to assist you.
