Removal of Conditions on Residence
Which are the differences between I-90 and I-751 Procedures?
Hi this is Kaushik Ranchod from the Ranchod Law Group
Today I’m going to talk about the difference between Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card, and I-751, Petition to Remove the Conditions of Residence.
Removal of Conditions
The I-90 is a replacement green card so if you’ve lost your green card or if your green card is expired beyond the ten years that’s stated on your green card then you need to get an I-90. This is when you are already a permanent resident and you have the permanent green card. Don’t confuse the removal of conditions with the I-751 where you have a conditional green card where you need to remove the conditions off of your green card because you’ve been married less than two years.
So let’s say you file, you’re married and you filed for a green card and you’ve been married less than two years. In this case you get a conditional green card. Many times people make the mistake of filing for an I-90 and don’t file for the I-751.
The I-90 is required when your green card expires beyond the 10-year time frame, or if you’ve lost your green card or some other factors of that nature. The I-90 and the I-751 are taking a very long time to get approved, so you want to make sure that you file as soon as you can.
I don’t want you to be confused I want you to get the right answers so we’re here for you.
Thank you and have an awesome day.
