#VisaCoach Video on Costs to Remove Conditions on Residency in 2017
If your spouse was granted Permanent Residence to the USA, because of her or his marriage to you, a US Citizen, and your marriage was less than two years old at the time of applying, then the Green Card that was issued was limited, and marked to expire in two years..
This means the permanent residency granted was only conditional, only good for two years. This is to protect the USA from sham marriage fraud. The expectation is, that if there was no fraud you and your spouse would still be married and a genuine couple, and that your relationship has now passed “the test of time”
