Default Question on Conditional Visa

Me and my wife married in August 2000. Things didn't work out. We no longer live in
the same place.

Anyway, what happens when the conditional visa expires? Do we have to both go to
an interview? Will they call us in? What if INS finds that we haven't been
living together?

We came in using the k1-visa.

Thanks for any advice you can give.

If you are a permanent resident (with conditions) then two years (less 90 days) from
the date you became a PR you need to file to remove conditions. The law is kind of
strange because if you got divorced prior to that date you can file immediately
providing evidence that the marriage was entered into in good faith. If you are not
divorced then you have to file jointly. Bottom line, whatever happens, don't lie or
pretend you are still together. So long as you can show the marriage was valid you
should be OK.

To clarify, they need to get divorced before the expiration date, not 90 days before.
You are required to file before the expiration date, not 90 days before. 90 days
before is the earliest date you can file, not the latest.
