My computer is down and I'm using my cell phone, so please forgive me for not having my tools to investigate on my own. I need to know what forms I need for my wife to renew her green card. She had one for that two year period and in a couple of months it will expire. It's the I-171 form and what else? Thanks in advanced. Oh and how much is the total fee.

Unlike a 10-year Green Card which is renewed by filing form I-90, a 2-year Green Card is conditional and cannot be renewed.

The "conditional" resident and her husband have to file form I-751 together. But it's far more than filing a form. It's providing evidence that both partners have been living together in martial harmony under one roof since getting married. Documents that provide such evidence are the past 2 years' worth of jointly filed tax returns, a joint bank account, a joint house or apartment lease or mortgage, joint car titles, insurances, phone bills, photos showing you two at vacations and the holidays.

You'll have to read the Removal of Conditions Guide very carefully and then ask questions if you don't understand something.

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.
