Lifting of Conditions

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My question is that we are nearing the end of the 2 year conditional green card and want to lift conditions for the ten year green card.

 

I understand that #1) I can not apply to lift the conditions until 90 days before the 2 year green card expires otherwise the application will be returned to me.

 

#2) It is going to take alot longer then 90 days to issue the ten year green card.

 

Are my facts straight for #1 and for #2?

 

My main question is how does she work ? and how does drive? without an active green card? 

As we learned in my earlier post; she can only legally drive as long as the green card is valid, and well she can't be employed without a valid work permit and green card which will run out while the 10 year green card is being processed.

 

Thanks

Correct.

 

#2) It is going to take alot longer then 90 days to issue the ten year green card. Correct also.

She will receive an I797C receipt notice stating her ROC application is pending. She can use that in combination with her expired CPR GC to validate her right to work and as evidence if needed to renew her DL.

As we learned in my earlier post; she can only legally drive as long as the green card is valid, and well she can't be employed without a valid work permit and green card which will run out while the 10 year green card is being processed.

The reason you are to apply 90 days in advance is so that she WILL receive that receipt notice for ROC in time before her CPR GC expires and can use both documents together as proof.

 

Thanks

It will take a LOT longer than 90 days to remove conditions......Just make sure she carries the expired green card along with the extension letter.

Based upon my experience at the DMV, they are not accommodating the I797 since there is no end date on it. 

Ditto with the bureaucracy of the her volunteer position. 

 

I have a solid 10 months to plan so I am not worried right now :) just trying to prepare.

 

The DMV has been alot of fun :)

The extension letter extends the expiration date on the card by 18 months.
