Am I a Conditional Resident?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok with all the whirlwind of arrival and everything I forgot to check on something.

At the interview the gentleman looking at our case said that it was a shame that we wernt applying ater our two year anniversary as I could just go straight to being a perm resident and that I should apply once we had been married two years for this.

Now on arrival I am told that I have to wait two years (ish) before getting my conditions lifted.

Who was right?

We were married on 29th Dec 06 and arrived in the USA on a CR-1 Visa on Dec 16th 2008.

Also when will I get my card and SSN?

Thanks everyone

If your marriage was less than two years old when you arrived you will be a conditional resident. Looks like you were about two weeks to quick

Yes, your date of entry will show on your conditional green card when you get it in the mail. Pay attention to this date so you know when to file to lift conditions before it expires.

Once the USCIS is done processing your info and puts it in the system you should be receiving your green card in the mail within 2-7 weeks, same for your SS card if you checked the SS box in the DS-230.
