A: That's a loaded question best discussed in the office. Some additional questions will include, "How did you obtain your conditional greencard? (e.g. investment based or family based?) What sort of bankruptcy is it? (personal or business based). There is a form I-944 that has to be completed in some situations. At this point, it seems unneeded, so this sort of situation 'may not' be an issue after discussion of all of the details.

In order to avoid complications, I strongly recommend an appointment or teleconference with a competent and experienced immigration attorney before there are any complications.
