Well I haven't received it yet but I hope I'm close. It's just dawned on my that "conditional" seems like a rather flimsy arbitrary and worrying adjective to have describing your immigration status when you don't know what the conditions really are. I mean, do I have to meet some special circumstances do I get deported if I get a parking ticket? lol you know? Can someone give me the low down and this thing.

There are a number of conditions, some of those most people would not even think of. The main one being that you remained married and to same person that is. If case you are not, then a determination is done as to whether conditions can be removed and each case is different. In that respect, you can say that it is to some extent arbitrary as in some cases thre could be some subjective judgements; but, they control; the game and the rules of the game...That said, it does not mean things are done in an arbitrary fashion and for the most part, objective reasoning and merits are weighted. I'd say to not worry that much.

Notice that even if you remain marry to same person, a removal can happen. How? You could be married but living in 2 diffrent states. There could be valid reasons for that, but generally, there needs to be proof that a marriage bonafide relation is happening. The point is that USCIS want some assurance that the marriage is legit. You would be surprised to see what some people try to pull.

But there are related 'conditions', for example, if you end up accused and convicted of a felony, that could be cause for removal (even if you had a non-conditional GC). Many things are considered felonies and more than one has been surprised to lear that the stupid thing they just did were one and thus cause deportation.

It's less about your marriage and more about being a good citizen. Obeying the laws, etc. Not traffic tickets, but major crimes. Hopefully they won't be an issue. :)

The long and short of it is that you remain married to your USC petition for the 2 years then you file a joint petition to Remove Conditions 90 days before the card expires. If you divorce during this time you MUST file ROC immediately and ask that the "condition" of joint filing be waived with evidence that you had a bonafide relationship.

There are of course the criminal issues (domestic violence is a biggie as well as felonies), and like any greencard you have residency requirements...

So basically just live your married life here in the US, don't commit and crimes and you should be fine :)

You are a legal permanent resident (once you get approved) and have all the same rights and responsibilities as any other Legal Permanent Resident. The only difference is that your card is only good for 2 years at the start and you fill out a different form to get a new card.

It is designed to prevent marriage fraud; it does not mean you are anything else but a Legal Permanent Resident.
