What happens to the conditional green card of my wife if we get married?

My wife, our three children and I hold conditional green cards and reside in the U.S. now. I am the principal applicant. My wife and I intend to divorce. Will my wife be able to apply for removal of conditions in 19 months? Is there any specific steps that need to be taken by our EB-5 regional center that manages our EB-5 investment?

    Yes; your wife can be included on your I-829 or she can file her own I-829 at that time.

    You may include your conditional permanent resident spouse or former spouse and children in your petition. If not, she can file separately.

    Yes, she can self-petition provided your I-829 is approvable.

    Yes, your wife can remove the conditions on her conditional green card on her own. Work with your regional center to ensure that the I-829 is properly filed and all its requirements are met and complied with as required. Consult EB-5 attorney for proper filing.
