(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.
