Conditional basis of lawful permanent residence
A conditional permanent resident under section 216(a) of the Immigration
and Nationality Act, 8 U.S.C. § 1186a(a) (2006), who is seeking to remove the
conditional basis of that status and who has timely filed the petition and
appeared for the interview required under
section 216(c)(1), does not need a separate section 216(c)(4) hardship waiver if the petitioning spouse died during the 2-year conditional period.
