Immigrating to the United States can be a complex and challenging process. However, for individuals who are married to a U.S. citizen or have a U.S. citizen step-parent, there is a potential pathway to temporary immigration status called Conditional Residency. In this blog post, we will provide an overview of what Conditional Residency is, how it works, who is eligible, and the steps needed to obtain it. We will also share specific examples of how Kriezelman Burton & Associates, LLC has assisted clients in navigating this process successfully.
Conditional Residency, also known as Conditional Permanent Resident Status, is a temporary immigration status granted to individuals who are married to a U.S. citizen or have a U.S. citizen step-parent. It serves as a means for the Department of Homeland Security to further evaluate the authenticity of the marriage or step-parent relationship. This status is granted when the marriage or step-parent relationship is less than two years old at the time of obtaining lawful permanent residency.
To be eligible for Conditional Residency, an individual must meet the following criteria:
It’s important to note that even if an individual is separated or divorced from their spouse, they can still apply for Conditional Residency based on certain grounds, such as the death of the spouse, divorce, abuse by the spouse, or extreme hardship if forced to leave the United States.
Obtaining Conditional Residency involves several steps, which include:
It’s worth mentioning that there are exceptions where an individual can file to remove the conditions after the two-year period, depending on the specific circumstances of each case.
