Wrong immigrant category code on conditional card

My wife was misclassified as a CR6 on her conditional green card instead of a CF1, even though she adjusted from a K1 visa. We wrote USCIS and alerted them to the error right away, but did not file an I-90 to get the card corrected, since all the other information on it was correct.

My question is whether they are likely to correct the mistake and issue her 10 year card as an IF1. I forgot to include a note with our I-751 filing about this. I'm not sure if they review the entire file (which shows she adjusted from K1) or just the evidence we submitted with the I-751 (which doesn't show what she adjusted from).

I know it's a small detail, but I don't want it to bite us later. Anyone else adjust from a K1 and end up as CR6 or IR6?

Why would you think that CR6 is incorrect?

The basis of the adjustment is different. For a CR6 or IR6, the adjustment is based on an approved I-130. For a CF1 or IF1, the adjustment is based on an approved I-129F. Hence, a CR6 or IR6 classfication for an immigrant who entered on a K1 would be incorrect.

It may be something that you want to try getting corrected.

Not only because it is plainly incorrect, but also because it could impact future processing of her permanent residency and may have some impact on how long she has to wait to apply for citizenship.

I don't know anything about the actual impacts, but it would bother me enough to try getting it corrected. You should be able to just file the no-cost form people file to get green card mistakes corrected.

There was a rash a while back of people getting the wrong gender (sex) information on their green cards. To me this could cause a whole range of serious problems, from marriage legality issues to emergency medical care mistakes.

It is a disappointment, but you're dealing with Government employees, or worse yet, contractors who don't even have the experience the Government employees have.

We got the card today and the category code is now IR6.

I think this may be a case of me just knowing too much about immigration stuff for my own good. How many average green card holders know or even care what their category code means? If USCIS chose to put my wife in the IR6 category, who are we to argue? She'll still be eligible to apply for citizenship later this year.
