An immigrant from Jamaica, Radcliffe Davis entered the United States on a legal visitor visa in December of 2007. In 2008, he married Nadine Woodley and he adjusted his status to a conditional permanent resident.
However, this status was terminated in 2010 by United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) when Davis was denied a request for a waiver of the requirement that he file a joint petition with Woodley to remove his conditional status.
Under US law, a person who is the spouse of a US citizen/permanent resident is granted conditional permanent resident status if the marriage took place less than two years before the immigrant spouse is admitted as a US permanent resident. Conditional resident status is given on the day the immigrant spouse is lawfully admitted to the United States on an immigrant visa, or receives adjustment of status.
