Case Status Update: Conditions on Permanent Residence removed, 10-Year Green Card Approved!

10-Year Green Card Approved: Today we received another approval on a petition to remove conditions on permanent residence (Form I-751)! Our client. (hereinafter "M"). is a native and citizen of Mali. In April of 2013, M married a naturalized U.S. Citizen (his wife was born in Cote d'Ivoire and naturalized in 2009). M's wife filed a marriage petition on his behalf, and in December of 2013, he received his green card based on the marriage. Because the couple was married for less than 2 years at the time of the green card interview, M only received a 2-Year Green Card. So, M and his wife had to file a joint petition to remove conditions on his residency within 3 months of the expiration date of his Green Card in December of 2015. M and his wife timely filed the petition and it was finally approved! M and his wife are still happily married and living together in the Bronx, NY, so M can now file for his Citizenship!
