Course Description

This course is intended to give an overview of Conditional Residence status in the United States. It will explain what Conditional Residence is, what restrictions are placed on Conditional Residents, and how to remove the conditions when the time comes without attorney assistance. This course may save you hundreds of dollars in attorneys' fees.

By the end of this course, you will understand what conditional residence is and whether to remove the conditions via a joint or waiver petition with USCIS. Regardless of the type of petition, this course will walk you through, step by step, the USCIS Form I-751 required and the supporting documentation that you will need to prove your case and remove the conditions of your residence.

This course is structured as a series of compact, narrated slides. Each slide contains the key points of the lecture, and the narration provides much needed color and practical guidance from an immigration attorney that has handled many cases precisely like yours!

Instructor Biography

Spencer Larche, Immigration Attorney

I am an attorney whose practice is focused on both family and business immigration. I have significant experience aiding business clients with the preparation of various non-immigrant, employment visa petitions, including those in the H-1B (professionals), H-2B (temporary/seasonal workers), E-1 / E-2 (treaty traders/investors), L-1A (intracompany transferees), J (exchange visitors), and R (religious workers) categories. I also regularly advise clients on PERM processing with the Department of Labor and employment based green cards in the EB-1, EB-2, and EB-3 categories.

For my individual clients, I assist them in obtaining visas, permanent residence, and citizenship, among other things. I have experience with non-immigrant visa petitions, including those in the B-1/B-2 (business/pleasure), F-1 (student), and K (fiancée) categories, and immigrant visa petitions, including adjustments of status, VAWA petitions, and extreme hardship waivers. I have also represented individuals in removal proceedings.

I am a member of the American Immigration Lawyers Association (AILA) and am licensed to practice law in Alabama, Mississippi, and Wisconsin.
