"(2) Alien Lawfully Admitted for Conditional Permanent Residence. An alien
lawfully accorded the privilege of residing permanently in the U.S. on a
conditional basis. The INS grants this status based upon the alien’s marriage to
an U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident. The INS also grants this status to
the alien’s children. This classification includes only those marriages entered
into less than 24 months before acquiring permanent resident status. The status
is subject to ratification or revocation 2 years later. The INS issues these aliens
an Alien Registration Receipt Card (Form I-551) with an expiration date 2 years
from date of issue. On its front, the card displays in bold letters Resident Alien. Conditional lawful permanent residents with unexpired alien registration
cards (Form I-551) are eligible to enlist."
