(This measure has not been amended since it was introduced. The expanded summary of the House reported version is repeated here.)

Amends the Immigration and Nationality Act to toll, during active-duty service abroad in the Armed Forces, the 90-day periods of time for an alien spouse or petitioning spouse to file a petition and appear for an interview to remove the conditional basis for permanent resident status.

States that: (1) at the petitioner's option the petition may be filed during such active-duty service at any time after commencement of the 90-day petition period, and (2) the tolling of the 90-day interview period shall not be construed to prohibit the Secretary of Homeland Security (DHS) from waiving the interview requirement.
