Hi everyone I am just about to begin my Removal of conditions (ROC) process.

I just noticed my wifes U.S passport is expired. Does anyone know if we can still use that given that she is the US citizen?

You dont need anything like that from your wife.

so her passport isn't needed at all? I was wondering if we needed it for proof of her citizenship.

What are you going to use your USC wife's expired passport for? She is not the one that is petitioning to remove conditions on residence status, you are the LPR that is petitioning for remove conditions on your residence status. That is not to say that she should have a valid US passport in her possession. You should likely take some time to look over the Form I-751 and the form instructions. Paying particular attention to filing your petition within ninety days immediately before the expiration of your conditional residence. If you are too early or too late, USCIS will likely return it (early) or lose your permanent resident status and be eligible for removal from the US (late). You should also consider moving on up to the Removal of Conditions (ROC) forum, https://www.visajourney.com/forums/forum/86-removing-conditions-on-residency-general-discussion/ , you will likely get more focused responses than in the current Adjustment of Status (AOS) forum. Finally, :time: your timeline is currently vacant. Timelines help everyone that uses the forum for assistance, and helps give the VJ stats more relevance.

 

Good luck on your immigration journey.

The ROC process is about you removing the conditions on your residence, it has nothing to do with her US citizenship...though, yes, she should get her passport renewed.

 

Take a look at the first couple of pinned threads in the ROC forum to get a feel for the NOA1 receipt/GC extension letter and the type of "marital bonafides" that you will need for collect, and submit with your petition.

There are other documents that prove US citizenship if you need it. A US birth certificate or a naturalization certificate is proof of US citizenship

Yep, it sounds like your 90 petition acceptance window just opened up. Many people find the type and level of evidence that USCIS requires to successfully pass your ROC is too intrusive. It may be, but it is their rules, their ball, and their ball field. 

 

All told, including our RFE for more documents, we sent in around ten (10) pounds of paper (documents) to satisfy the USCIS adjudicator. YMMV.

I don’t think you need to prove citizenship, but I just got done getting a REALID in my state and it required:

-birth certificate or passport 

-social security card, w2, or paycheck stub 

-two proof of residency documents (utility bill, bank statement, lease, deed/title) 

 

hope this helps
