When You face a Judge After Conditional residency expiration

Often a conditional resident may end up in removal proceedings. This could be due to a denied case or failure to file to remove the condition while the residency period was intact. But not all hope is lost if placed in removal. If a CLPR’s status has been terminated, the immigrant may be able to file a waiver case or joint petition to remove the condition with CIS and delay the issuance of a removal order. Judges have the power to delay proceedings to give the immigrant these options.

An immigrant who already filed a case with CIS which was denied can ask the judge to review the case in removal court and even provide more evidence at that point. Another option may be filing a new green card case based on a new marriage but in this scenario, the former/expired green card holder will likely face skepticism about the bona Fide nature of the new marriage and should document the case well.
