If you received your green through marriage you most likely received a conditional green card valid for two years.
After two years you are required to remove the conditions on your permanent resident status. You must file a petition within the 90-day period before your conditional Green Card expires. You cannot renew your conditional Green Card. If your conditions are not removed, you will lose your permanent resident status and you will become removable from the United States.
Your permanent resident status is conditional if it is based on a marriage that was less than two years old on the day you became a permanent resident. You are given a conditional permanent resident status when you are either admitted to the United States on an immigrant visa or adjust your status to that of a permanent resident.
Your status is conditional until you prove, after a specified period of time, that you did not enter the marriage to circumvent the immigration laws of the United States.
You are required to remove the conditions of your green card together with your spouse (joint petition) but you can still remove conditions in the event of divorce, death of spouse or if you were battered or subjected to extreme cruelty by your spouse.
