    Thanks a lot I will definitively do this when the time comes.

    PS-
    For the bonafied mirage proof, I believe its around the same kind of proof I had to show in my first interview right? Also, is there a second interview or is it all paperwork? Im getting mixed answers with this one. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Yes, same kind of proof, just more recent. It really depends on the situation as to whether an interview is required and it's up to the local office who are adjudicating the petition. The better your evidence of a bona fide marriage, the better the chances you won't need one. However if there is one needed, they're fairly lenient when it comes to soldiers and deployment.

    Again, your JAG office can help you out and you should talk to them ASAP. You may be able to skip this process and go straight to citizenship through your military service.

    Mark,

    The following link provides a good list of items to use as proof of bona fide marriage:

    I believe the 2nd interview is up to USCIS discretion, but I would be prepared just in case they schedule one for you.

    Mark,

    You will need to file the I-751 in January of next year - 90 days prior to the expiration of your conditional green card. I think you should discuss this with an immigration attorney because there might be special circumstances involved because you are military. Just make sure you have all evidence of a bona fide marriage and the I-751 completed before you deploy since your wife may need to file this in your absence. If they do schedule an interview, perhaps you can request a leave of absence to attend. This would need to be addressed with your commanding officer.

    In any event, try not to worry. Everything will work out okay. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Mark-o,

    Welcome and I also thank you for serving our country.

    I just want to clarify that when you file to remove conditions, it is not 3 months prior to the 2-year wedding anniversary. It is 3 months prior to two years after your green card was issued.

    Good luck and I hope, as someone mentioned here, that your process can be expedited. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

    Thank you,

    Thanks for clarifying that, but just give a bit more detail. My conditional GC is set to expire on 04/2012, and I will enter the army this July as an Active Duty soldier, meaning that 95% of my 4 years in the army will be spent overseas.

    I believe there is a second interview for me and my wife in order to remove the conditions, but im afraid that I will be half away around the world when that time comes, hence I dont know what to do if this happens.

    PS-
    I heard rumors that, the military only takes care of the citizenship process but not the resident process. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

    get out of here illegal cockney, you have no rights, you don't belong. I hear the English patriots are beating the c.r.a.p. out of the towel heads, no wonder ''you decided'' to stay. Does this remind you of anything?

    I understand SundeVille, but I know several people serving in the military and they tell me that they have to watch their backs, especially with certain ethnicites, if you know what I mean.

    Mark-o, you should head over to your JAG office ASAP. With your military service, you are entitled to expedited processing. They can help you with that.

    ...I think that Mark-o is actually a permanent resident with conditional status. In any event, he is a patriot for serving in our military.

    No amnesty is such a loser and doesn't realize CLEARLY that its 2011, what is such the problem with people moving, well unless you still stay with your parents which is a really high possibility since you act so childish, everyone moves to different places whether its state to state country to country even planet to planet, it really has nothing to do with you and sorry Mark O she just has been pissing me off so much I hope everything goes OK,

    Mark-o: Thank you for your service to America.

    I'm not an expert on the immigration process for members of the military, but I believe that there is a facility on military bases that can assist and advise on such issues.

    Why don't you talk with your commanding officer?

    Im a temporary resident at the moment, and I'am about to reach my 2nd anniversary with my wife which I believe the second interview comes in so I could turn into a permanent resident.

    Problem is that I'm getting deployed 2 days before I reach the 3 months prior to our 2nd anniversary and I wont be with my wife for the process. What is going to happen? and what would I have to do?
