Married for almost 4 years but got 2yr GC in the mail??

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I entered POE (Guam) in April 19, 2010, a week after I got my SSN and 2 welcome notices and just last saturday got the GC in the mail. When I opened it, it says my GC will expire on April 19, 2012. (2 YEAR GC).

The thing is when I entered Guam, I was told by the officer that since I have been married to my husband for 4 years almost, I will be getting a 10 yr GC, and that I wont need to remove conditions anymore. In fact, he has stamped it in my passport (I-551) with hand written IR-1. So I am very surprised to receive a Conditional GC.

Is this normal? Or should I call USCIS to tell them of their error??? PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE HELP.

Thank you all in advance.

Bring your passport, green card and marriage certificate.

Show them it expires in two years, but your passport says 10 years and your marriage certificate shows you've been married more than 2 years.

I'd probably bring anything else related to your IR-1 paperwork to prove that you should have gotten the 10 year green card.

When we filed, it was for a CR-1 Visa. We were married for less than 2 years when we filed, but it took us a long time to get it done, so by the time I entered the US, which was a month ago, we are already married for almost 4 years. Hence, the officer at POE told me that I should be automatically getting an Unconditional GC even though we applied for CR-1 because we are already married for more than 2 years, and then stamped and noted IR-1 in my passport.

I called USCIS hotline yesterday and I was informed that they will not be able to access any of my visa processing information and that I should file a form called I-90 (replacement of card) that will include the original greencard I received and supporting documents to the error. He advised that I may want to make an infopass appointment before filing it just to make sure that it was indeed an error (thru info pass they will be able to retrieve my files).

The thing is, I am back home, in Manila, to tie up lose ends with my job. My contract ends in August, so I was not planning on coming back to the US to move permanently until September.

So my follow up question is: Do you think it will matter much if i wait 2 months to see an officer (make an infopass appointment) before filing an I-190? Or go on ahead and file the I-90 (returning back my original GC and other supporting docs)?

Thank you all so much for being helpful.

Is your husband back in guam ? send him scanned images to print out, of:

1. green card

2. visa with 'that' writing

3. passport bio page

3. any noa-2 document from the I-130

and then have HIM go to an infopass appointment, with those documents, whilst yer in Guam.

Any other twists on this?
