I'm a lawful US Resident, acquired tru marriage to a US Citizen. My problem is my 5 kids (ages: 19, 15, 13,12 & 9 yrs old) They have been petition by my husband from the PHilippines and has been approved. They came to U.S. last April and received their Green Card but its valid only for 2 yrs. What does this mean? Why is it valid for 2 yrs only? Is it a conditional green card also just like mine before? I became a permanent resident last July 2009 only, after they came to United States.What has been bothering me is me and my husband are separated now because we had marital problems. I even called 911 before because he shove me. It was a misdemeanor charge according to the police. But the next day we fight again and this time it was him who called 911 and make up lies and told them i scratched him. I was arrested and sent to the hospital (mental hospital). Stayed there for 1 night, becoz im not really sick on the head as per doctor, its just a police procedure i think. And becoz I was traumatized and i dont feel safe anymore with my husband i left him with my kids. Him bitter, reported me to USCIS THAT I JUST USED HIM FOR VISA. He told them that i left him as soon as i get my kids, that i planned it all along. I just waited to for my kids visa and left him.DO YOU THINK THAT Mine AND MY KIDS VISA WILL BE REVOKED? and IF I RENEW THEIR GREEN CARD IN 2011 (eXPIRATION DATE)do you think it will only be denied and they will be sent back to the Phlippines?Pls Advise......

They are conditional because they are based upon the condition that you remain married. This was done to combat Marriage fraud. If you can prove abuse, you will be able to file an I-751 waiver for yourself and/or your children. If it is not approved, then yes, your Residency and their Residencies would be revoked.
