CR-1 question regarding final interview/green card time

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This paragraph is the last one on the step-by-step I-130 guide:

The interview can last for as littles as 10 minutes or up to an hour depending upon your specific case. You relative will take an oath under US law to tell the truth, and it is very important that your relative answer every question as truthfully as possible. In general, it is a good idea that your relative bring documentation to prove strong ties and a relationship with you, the petitioner. (i.e. phone bills, letters etc.) If the consulate officer approves your relative's immigrant visa application, your relative will be issued an immigrant visa that allows your relative to become a US permanent resident. Your relative will become a U.S permanent resident only when he/she enters the U.S at a port of entry, until this time, he/she only has an immigrant visa that is valid up to 6 months from the interview date. If your relative cannot immigrate to the U.S within the 6 month allotted time, then his/her immigrant visa will expire, and the I-130 process must start all over again. Also, if your relative is your wife or husband and you have been married for less then 2 years at the time of his/her arrival at a port of entry, then he/she will receive a temporary I-551 Stamp and then later a Green Card by mail good for only 2 years. Ninety days before the green card expires you will have to file an I-751 form to remove it's conditional status.

My question is in regards to setting up the final interview. My wife and I got married in July 2006 and at this point have decided that we might as well wait for the 2 year anniversary before she comes over so that we don't have to file the I-751 form and that she can just come over on a normal 10 year green card. My question though is should we setup the final interview to be at our 2 year anniversary or later or is it ok to set it up sooner, and as long as she physically does not come until after our 2 year anniversary, would she still get the regular 10 year green card? Currently, we just paid the I-864 bill online and she just sent back the DS-3032, so we do expect things to speed up now. Thanks!

If July 2006 is correct you are already past the two year mark.... If it is wrong then the two year mark will be based on the day she enters the USA and not the interview or visa date...


YMMV
