To remove the conditions placed on a Two-year, Conditional Green Card, the Green Card Holder must file an I-751, which is titled: “Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence.” The I-751 process has many options to choose from, but the general choice is the “Joint Filing” that must be filed within 90 days before the expiry of the Green Card. Most “original marriages” will utilize the Joint Filing. If you are in need of a waiver or a late filing, you are encouraged to speak with a local immigration attorney. A denial of the I-751 process leads to deportation and opens the Green Card Holder to many violations.

|Joint-Filing||$1700||$680||A Jointly-filed I-751 requires the signing and confirmation of both spouses. The original spouses in the Green Card filing must still be the same in the I-751 Filing.|
|Waiver-Filing||$2000||$680||If some circumstance is different or if a divorce has occurred, then you will need a Waiver to the “Joint Filing Requirement.”|
|Late-Filing||$2700||$680||A late filing is generally performed by a married couple, who had missed their I-751 Filing Window.|
