10 year green card following AOS approval for K-1 visa
Posted 28 July 2010 - 04:40 PM
Has anyone else received a 10 year green directly after being approved for AOS? We are very happy, but we were warned by other filiers that we were supposed to get a 2 year conditional green card first following an AOS for the K-1 visa (and then we would file for the 10 year green card). Should I consider going to the USCIS website (infopass) and request to set up an appt to talk to someone to confirm we have the correct green card or should I not stir the pot up? I don't want to risk my wife traveling in 2+ years and then being told she can not return. On the otherhand I don't want to lose a 10 year green card because I questioned it.
Thanks for any feedback.

We got a 10yr GC on our AOS from K1 also. I have seen other people on the site get a 10 yr card also from a K1. I posted the same message and was told people have had this happen and when they went to apply for citizenship was denied because they never removed conditions. I searched this site and never found anyone having that problem. Just to be on the safe side, I called USCIS and inquired if my wife was listed as a permanent resident or a conditional, they pulled her up in the system, and said she is not a conditional resident, shows she has a 10 yr GC and is listed as permanent. So I just stopped worrying about it.
Thank you for your response. I'll ask the USCIS if she is listed as permanent or conditional.

I got the same problem with my green card. just received my green card in the mail today and was surprised to see that the expiration date is 09/16/20 and resident since 09/13/10, which means I got a-10 year green card, right?
My husband and I just had our AOS interview last Sept. 13, 2010.
Don't know if I should get worried or celebrate instead.
