If you have obtained your U.S. residency on the basis of marrying a U.S. citizen, but you were given conditional instead of permanent residence due to the recency of marriage, then you have to fill out form I-751 (Petition to remove conditions)and submit USCIS in order to receive permanent residency.
General Instructions For Filling Form I-751
- You can easily fill this form on your computer, and that’s the best way to do it. But, if you want to fill it in by hand, then use black ink. Make sure that signatures must be done by hand. Do not use a stamp and type your name where it asks for a signature.
- There are questions in the form that doesn’t apply to you. You can simply tick the box ‘N/A’ for such questions. If your answer to a question is in zero, such as “How many kids do you have”, just type ‘None,’ instead of typing a zero.
- The last page of the form has additional space in which you are allowed to add information that won’t fit in the space given elsewhere on the form. In case, you need even more space, then write or type the information on a new piece of paper and then you can attach AT the end of the form.
- On every additional sheet, it is necessary to type Alien Registration number and your name at the top. Beside this, date and sign each additional page at the bottom. Also, indicate the form’s page and part number, as well as item number to which the information refers.
- In Part 1, Question 9 asks for your ELIS account number. Remember, this is not the number of your Alien Registration. In fact, it is number that you were given if you ever filed a request, application, or petition using the USCIS ELIS (Electronic Immigration System).
- The Question no. 12 asks for the “place” of marriage. This means country (if outside the U.S.) and state(if in the U.S.). It is not referring to any other location or the type of building in which the event had taken place.
