I am U.S. Citizen and my wife is currently Green Card with Conditions (she got her greencard based on our marriage)
My wife and I got married back in May 2014 and she got her green card in February 5th, 2015.
Since it is almost time to start her I-751 to remove the conditions, we are beginning to work on our package.
Few questions.. when I tried to download the i-751 form, I saw below instructions on it, it states as below..
"You and your spouse must apply together to remove the conditions on your residence by filing Form I-751. You should apply during the 90 days before your second anniversary as a conditional resident. The expiration date on your green card is also the date of your second anniversary as a conditional resident. If you do not apply to remove the conditions in time, you could lose your conditional resident status and be removed from the country."
1.Do we need to file 2 separate I-751 for each one of us? and also pay two filing fees ($505 x 2)?
Or do we file one I-751 under my wife's name?
2.Since her green card's 2nd year anniversary is on the February 5th, 2017, should I send the file exactly on the 90 days before which I am assuming on November 7th?
3.Below are what we can provide as evidences for our marriage.
A. marriage license,
C. airplane tickets (we traveled ALOT internationally),
D. our joint car insurance,
E. joint checking account,
F. joint tax returns,
G. joint credit cards(wife being Authorized user),
H. wife being the beneficiary of my life insurance(company paid for and I have to look for this document),
I. our 5 month old daughter who we had in May 2016, her birth certificate stating myself as the father and my wife as the mother,
Other than these, we do not have much more than this... is this enough? We live with my parents and I give my parents money(cash) monthly so my parents can pay the mortgage and utilities, etc... Any other recommendation for evidences? Can't think of others..
4. Lastly, are interview must for all i-751 applicants? We are asking because we get super nervous and I heard some people bypass the interview and gets approved for removal of conditions.
Thank you all,
I am just little worried about the process because the trouble some we had when filing for her greencard two years ago (Mailman failure to deliver our interview appointment letter causing denial to our application, etc).
Good luck all and I pray for you all!
