Mother is a Conditional Permanent Resident

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello to everyone!

My mother is a Conditional Permanent Resident (based on marriage to US Citizen), but she got divorced and won't be able to remove the Conditional Status.

What would be the appropriate way for me to get her a Permanent Resident Status? Should I file the I-130 or the I-751?

I'm wondering if anyone here has any experience of this sort. :blush:

Hello to everyone!

Why won't she be able to remove conditions? Is there any other reason she can't besides the divorce?

The i-751 application allows for a waiver for people who are divorced.

Barring any other reasons (not sure what..) she should be able to remove conditions on her own provided that she can prove that the marriage was entered into in good faith

I don't think she has enough evidence that the marriage was entered in good faith because when she arrived to the US their relationship deteriorated quickly so they didn't have any joint accounts or morgage, etc. I think USCIS would need more evidence than she can provide.

But as a US Citizen, I can apply for her as my immediate relative. So I'm just wondering what would be the process since she is already in the US.

Hmm...That's a bit more complicated then..

I don't know the answer to your question, but my knee jerk reaction would be to say that you cannot petition for an immediate relative who is already a permanent resident albeit a conditional one.

Maybe she needs to try to Remove conditions on her own and if denied, then you can petition for her?

I don't know..

I hope someone else with more experience will come along.

Best of luck to you and your mom..
