We just had an approval of a petition to remove the conditions placed on residency, and our client is now a permanent legal resident of the United States.
If you obtain your green card through marriage and are married less than two years at the time the green card is granted, the Immigration Services only provides you a two year "conditional" residency which has to be "removed" towards the expiration of that conditional period by either proving that the marriage is still bona fide (through a joint petition), or alternatively if the marriage has broken down, through evidence of divorce, abuse, or extreme cruelty so long as you can still sufficiently prove that you had a bona fide marriage at the time you initially obtained your conditional green card.
Please note that processing times for removal of conditions are very backlogged now, and it may be possible to interfile an application for citizenship while it is pending if you otherwise qualify.
If you have any questions about removing the conditions on your residency or naturalization, please contact us. We are here to help. Follow us on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn or Tumblr for up-to-date immigration news.
