Got the Greencard

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


My husband is from Morocco and arrived here November 13th on a CR1 visa.

He got his greencard over the weekend..It took like 44 days or something like 7 weeks to get it.

Glad he did now tomorrow going to the SS office to apply for Social Security Card.

Things are moving ahead, now on to job hunting.

Any tips on how to create resumes for immigrants or individuals with little job experience is appreciated.

My husband's took 7 weeks as well and we also had to go in person to get his SS # even though we had checked the box in the DS-230.

As for putting together his resume, you can look up some examples online. It shouldn't be that different from a regular resume. Monster.com also has several samples that you can look up.

Congratulations on receiving green card.

I am still waiting for mine, but I did get an email from CRIS on 24th about Card production order, I got another CRIS email today saying my case has been approved.......I am kind of confused about what it means by my case being approved.

Anyways about SSN, me and hubby went to SSN office on 23rd and applied in person. We didn't have to fill up any form, the lady in there was very helpful and she filled out a form on her computer and I just had to sign. She said I should be getting it in 2 weeks time.

I really wish to get the SSN asap, so that we can move to a better apartment :D
