for two years. USCIS wants to verify that your marriage was genuine. Before
the two year period expires you must file a joint petition demonstrating
that you are still married and that you continue to live in marital union.

card will be removed and your spouse and any accompanying children with
then receive full legal permanent residency. USCSIS may schedule an in-person
interview to verify that the marriage is in good faith.
Getting the I-751 filing right the first time is critical. If the immigration
officer decides the marriage was in bad faith and entered into just to
obtain a green card, USCIS may place the immigrant spouse in deportation
proceedings. Given how important the petition is to you and your loved
ones, working with a San Francisco and San Jose immigration defense lawyer
Is a smart decision.

or mental cruelty, along with the hardship you would endure on returning
to your country of origin. Our firm has successfully assisted numerous
