    USCIS revises 2005 guidance on when officers may waive an interview in adjudicating Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence. USCIS officers may consider waiving the interview requirement if the record provides sufficient evidence that the marriage is bona fide; if they had previously interviewed the I-751 principal petitioner; if there is no indication of fraud; or if there are no complicating factors or questions that could be resolved during an interview.
