USCIS Updates Policy on Family-Based Conditional Permanent Residency

The U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has updated its Policy Manual guidelines on family-based conditional permanent residence. The update clarifies the process and requirements for Form I-751, which is used to remove conditions on residence, especially in cases involving waivers for battery or extreme cruelty. It also notes that noncitizens can adjust their status even if their conditional residency is terminated for not filing Form I-751 on time. This update is particularly relevant for those who obtained conditional residency through marriage less than two years before their status grant.
