CR-1 to IR-1 is it automatic?

13 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Today marks the second anniversary of being married to the best spouse in the world :dancing::dance:(L)

My question is, will our case automatically be considered IR-1 if it's approved? No removing conditions? His interview is July 16th. Thank you for any help.


"A million years if I could live,
A thousand lives if I could give,
I would spend it all again with you,
Don't forget where you belong,
Only with me you are strong,
Not even the gods above can break,
Baby what we have"

I think if you can survive this process as a couple you can survive anything. I NEVER thought I would do any of this for another person. I have been stretched 500 miles beyond my limit. We can do it!! :)
