15 Jun I-751 Petition granted for Widow of U.S. Citizen
Our client received a conditional green card based on her bona fide marriage to a U.S. Citizen. Within the 2 year conditional resident status period our client’s husband passed away. Our client filed an I-751 Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence on the basis that she was widowed. Our client was scheduled for an interview at the USCIS Philadelphia District Office. We presented the Immigration Services Officer who conducted the interview with substantial evidence that our client’s marriage was bona fide at its inception. Following a detailed interview, our client’s I-751 petition was approved and she was given a new green card with a 10 year expiration date.
