A latest policy memorandum issued by the US Citizenship and Immigration Services has revised the need for having a meeting while adjudicating Type I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence. This will definitely reduce the processing time for Form I-751. As the previous process goes, immigration officers had to interview a conditional permanent resident that obtains lawful permanent resident status on a conditional basis. These aliens get this status and get a green card by either marrying a US citizen or by virtue of being their children. If they’re married for over a couple of years during the time of admission or adjustment of status to obtain this conditional lawful permanent residency.
To prevent dropping this status after both of these decades, they’ve file form I-751 together with proof that the marriage wasn’t deceitful, or made with the intention to attempt to evade US immigration laws. This process came with a meeting determine the credibility of all parties involved. This mandate has been waived. The potential to quit interviews is definitely going to streamline adjudicating the Type I-751 processing times. The new policy reduces the timelines and nervousness of legitimate couples that had to go through these interviews. This policy enables USCIS officers to waive the Interview Item if: The existing records on file have sufficient evidence that the marriage is bona fide legitimate.
No actions have been done to evade the US immigrations legislation at all. There was already a meeting conducted in the very beginning of the process and the petition was received after December 10, 2018. The primary petitioner had other petitions on file such as Type I-485 or Form I-130 as well as due diligence was already done for these from the past. The supporting documents affirm the authenticity of the marriage. Eventually, there are no signs or red flags that might require further investigation or resolution. This waiver is applicable to both joint and single filers of I-751. Do bear in mind that USCIS has announced an automatic 18 month extension of the continued residential status for Permanent residents past their expiration.
