You have to apply for removal of conditions within 90 days before your conditional GC expires.

What name appears on all your wife's IDs? Is it her married name or her maiden name? Whatever name she is using as her legal name is what you should put on part 4.

My Conditional GC expires on May 27th 2011, when should I send my application to remove condition, and on part 4. information about spouse to whom I gained condition residence, should I put my wife Maiden name or her married lastname since she has my last name now.

OK so my 90 days window begins on February 28 is that correct?

She is using my lastname right now, its on her DL and SSN, but her passport still have her maiden name, should I go ahead and put her married lastname

That will be fine, however May 27 - 90 days is actually Feb 26..

Yes, use married name if she wishes her green-card to have married name on it.

Changing name on a green card later will cost you an extra $450 to file an I-90

Actually she's the US Citizen, I am her husband the Conditional GC holder, she has my lastname, should I put that on the I-751 for Family name or her maiden name.

Yes, you can put her married name. The form also asks for your wife's SSN, so when the USCIS runs a check on it, they will see it is in her married last name.

As a gentle reminder, try not to put off the application too close to the end of the 90-day window. Some members have done so, and have reported packages returned due to unsigned forms or incorrect amounts on checks...by the time they get it fixed, the 90 days had passed and their GCs expired, which is a major pain to fix.

Thank you very much for your prompt replies, and I am going to put her married name then, we plan to mail everything by the first week of march.

Also we have a copy of our leasing contract that we had for our AOS interview, can this be used for Lifting condition since we still live at the same address or should we ask for a new copy at the leasing office.

Probably a newer one, a two year old document means less, who's to say you are no longer living together there??

I would attach several items showing a shared address, a couple sworn affidavits from friends or family knowing your relationship are very strong evidence..

While asking for a new one will not hurt, we gonna have 3 years of married filling jointly for tax transcript, that should be very strong right? 08,09,10 tax returns.

USCIS looks at the totality of the case, Joint returns show just a part of the whole picture. A couple could be living separately, and filing a joint return.

The conditions on a 2 year green-card are living together as a married couple for the 2 years, the reason for this is there are cases of marriage fraud, using marriage "just to get green-card" and immigrate, there is no genuine marriage involved, just one person using a citizen to get a toe-hold into the USA.

Typically IRS may have transcripts available within a month or so after filing. I wold simply make a photo-copy of the return and attach that to the I-751 rather than waiting for a transcript.

i would file the 1-751 in the married name, you get a one year extension letter,then two or three later you receive asc appointment biometrics in your married name,when you are approved you should get a 10 year green card in your married name, if not if it is still in the maiden name it's a error on the adminstrative part,then they have to get you a new card no charge,
