Q: I have conditional GC. Can we live seperate but close?
I am on conditional GC. We lived together all this time and there are no major problems between us. We are deciding to live seperately starting the last couple months because my US citizen partner needs to take care of a family member for a while. We are going to be close and remain in a relationship and meet frequently. I wonder if that is going to have a negative effect on our application.
A: Living apart may be a red flag but you should be able to overcome it with evidence of you remaining as a couple through your frequent communications and visits with each other etc. Document it well, submit the evidence when you remove the condition and bring more to the interview (if there is one). Best wishes!
A: That is a very bad idea. Two people in a viable marriage do not make such a decision. There is a presumption that your marriage is not viable. Your reason for living apart is not a good one. Secondly, I caution you to be careful what you post online as anyone can read it.
