Passed interview, Green Card is in the mail

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All, well thanks to this website we did everything ourselves and just passed the interview. She said green card will arrive in 2 weeks.

Our case was based on marriage, wife was H-1 worker here in US and we have dated 5 years, married last year. We sent the application with everything in March. Our interview was last week in August.

The interviewer here in San Francisco asked only a few questions, and was very nice.

She asked me what her parent's names were and if we had ever spoken. She asked each what was the other's b-day. And then just general conversation, How did we meet etc...

So the only question I have is the 2 year conditional aspect; the green card will expire in 2 years. What needs to be done in 2 years? Is it another interview, or just sending a new application; or a specific form? What is the procedure like, is it simple?

Thanks again!

Congratulations!!

I think you have to file to lift the conditions on the GC - 3 months before it expires.

Someone will correct me if I'm wrong.

Thanks!

So we just fiel a form and that's it? Seems strange to even have a 2 yr condition if so...

Generally, you just file the I-751 form along with proof that yours is a valid marriage. You can start collecting evidence now - joint tax returns, joint bank statements, utility bills paid by one or the other; same health insurance; same car insurance, etc - documents that prove you have co-mingled your financial and personal lives together over the course of your marriage. There will most likely not be another interview but an interview is always a possibility. Be sure you don't forget to file during that 90 day window and not late as the consequences can be trying and unpleasant.
