requirements for i-751 removal of conditions

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am filing i-751 to and am still married to my spouse and am filing from the US. A few questions: 

 

1: After reading the instructions, I am still unsure if I need to submit the $85 biometrics fee? 

2: Can I travel outside the US after/during  I submit my application? Or do I need to apply for advance parole? My current green card expires end of november and I am looking to go on a trip end of october.

3: What's the timeline currently from when I file? 

4: Aside from evidence and filing fee, and G-1145 do I need to submit any other documents/proof? Do I need a cover letter? 

Thank you again for an amazing community! Crazy how fast my 2 years went by and now I'm back here!

1) Yes, you need to submit the biometrics fee for every petitioner (basically, if you were applying for spouse + 1 child, you would pay the biometrics fee twice)

2) Yes, you can travel and you don't need to apply for AP.  When you submit the petition, you'll receive a letter of extension for your green card, probably for 12-18 months.  You can travel with both the green card and the letter without problems.

3) That depends where you're filing from.  You can filter timelines on VJ or check the USCIS website. 

4) The instructions specify that a cover letter is required.  You also need to submit a copy of the front and back of your green card.  The other evidence is to prove bona fide relationship - send as much as you can, basically.

Whoa. Are we reading the same instructions? There is no requirement for a cover letter, though it is good practice to include one. See the link below for a general idea of what you need (click on the Checklist tab):

https://www.uscis.gov/i-751

 

On the evidence of the relationship: I'd focus more on quality, not quantity. Good-quality evidence:

 

1) Cover the entire period from marriage to the time of application, and

2) Cover 4 main areas of a legit marital relationship: cohabitation; financial co-mingling; shared life experiences; and planning for the future together.

Thank you so much for this! 

4) Can you possibly link to these instructions please? I read the instructions here https://www.uscis.gov/i-751 but can't see anything about cover letter? Just want to make sure I am not missing anything and reading the wrong thing. Or is there a sample cover letter on this forum or something? 

 

Thank you again so much
