Confusing date when to file for Removal of CR Status under CR1 Visa

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi ,

We got married May 23, 2013 and arrived in US Feb.26, 2015 under CR1 Visa. At the Port of entry I was given a half sheet of paper with something that I am confused about...this serves as my Temporary green card. I have read some forums it and made me a lot more confuse when to really file an I-751 along with other documents..

Whats with the word " anniversary", is this relevant to our wedding or the date of my temporary green card release?

"the I-751 form must be filed within the 90 days just preceding the expiration date on your permanent residence card. This is the date that your conditional residence expires"

"It is very important to file the I-751 within the correct window of time, and be sure not to file it before the 90-day window. If you file it too early, they will send your application back. You may file at any time during the 90 day window, but it is prudent to file fairly early in the window."

"If you fail to properly file the Form I-751 (Petition to Remove the Conditions on Residence) within the 90-day period before your second anniversary as a conditional resident, your conditional resident status will automatically be terminated"

Sorry, this topic makin me feel dumb.. :crying: . Just glad you're there VJ people. Thank you guys for your help.

Look at the expiration date of the I-551 "Green Card," that is the one that counts, NOT your personal anniversary (at least as far as USCIS is concerned).

Your personal anniversary is only relevant to you and your spouse. :idea:

BTW, your window to file for ROC starts 90 calendar days prior to the expiration date expressed on your Form I-551 "Green Card." You may, or may not get a notice from USCIS, do not hold your breath waiting for it. ;)

Good luck on your immigration journey.
