Hello, my name is***** & I will be the immigration attorney helping you today. I'm reviewing your question and will be with you in a few minutes.
Under what status did the foreigner enter the US? Were they granted an immigrant visa or entered as a tourist or another visa?
I would really need to know in order to give you a correct answer because it would completely change my answer. If he entered with a CR-1 immigrant visa, then the foreigner still remains a US permanent resident even if the spouse died because he already had his status granted. First I need you to confirm that.
Whether there is a time limit completely depends on the foreigner's status when he/she entered the US. Once you give me that information I can give you a precise answer.
Exactly. If he has a CR-1 visa then he only needs to apply to remove conditions in 2 years with form I-751 which he can do even if his spouse died.
I am stepping away a few minutes, but I will not abandon you. Try to get me that information and I will continue answering you when I return if you have additional questions.
You're very welcome. The question will remain open so once you have more info, come back and we can continue.
Just checking if you were able to get the information.
No unfortunately there is not away. That is not public record. The information is only given to the actual individual who is in question.
