after a lengthly battle with leukemia my husband (us citizen) has died in dec 2009 and we were due to remove conditions in june 2010. but now i am wondering if i still need to wait to remove conditions until june or should i go ahead and do it already ... it doesnt really seem too clear to me from the info on the form.

My condolences.

You can do so as soon as you have the DC. Friend of mine just did so and got her 10 year GC without an interview.

Yeah that's why the USCIS service line is called the "misiformation" line. Sad as they can affect peoples lives by giving what people think is the right info.

You will still have to submit evidence you had a valid ongoing marriage until time of death.

I'm very sorry for your loss. My wife's ex passed way too from Leukemia after a short, 6-months battle with the cancer when their daughter was only 3 years old, back in 1992. I still can't possibly imagine how you must feel right now.

To answer your question: you are free and encouraged to file for ROC once you have the death certificate at hand. It's spelled out on USCIS's Web site here:

http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/i-751instr.pdf

In cases where the spouse passed away, ROC is usually approved without a hiccup.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

Condolences to you and every one who is sharing your loss. May he rest in peace. These uscis people never cease to amaze me. They told you to wait? For what? For your husband to come down from heaven to deal with them? you can get more info here on vj than from the customer MISinformation service
