The Application to Remove Conditions is typically filed jointly by the spouses. But what if you are no longer married and cannot file a joint application? There are solutions.
The law allows an individual to file an I-751 Application without his or her spouse if you can show:
- that you entered the marriage with honesty and good intentions, but your spouse subsequently died; or
- that you entered the marriage in good faith, but the marriage ended because of divorce or annulment; or
- that you entered the marriage in good faith and have remained married, but have been battered or subjected to extreme cruelty by your U.S. citizen or permanent resident spouse; or
- the termination of your status and removal would result in extreme hardship.
