When someone marries to a US citizen & applies for a green card, she may receive a Conditional Green Card.
A conditional green card would be given, if the couple has been married for less than two years at the time of the application.
On a marriage-based petition, the conditional green card is only valid for two years.
Within 90 days before the expiration date of the first green card, the applicant must file to remove the condition.
The condition may be removed, if marriage has been continued in good faith or based on USCIS rules, it is determined that it has been terminated for good cause.
Failure to remove the condition within appropriate time may cause removal & deportation. It is important to contact an immigration lawyer to make sure all required conditions are properly met.
