CR-1 visa category but IR-1 upon entry. Received GC that expires in 2 years. USCIS mistake?

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So I entered the US in April at Guam on a CR-1 Visa Type Category. Upon entry, I was informed by the officer that I will be getting a 10yr GC because I am married for more than 2 years and I wouldnt have to go through the removal of conditions anymore. He even stamped it on my passport. Ironically, today is my 4 year wedding anniversary. So I got my greecard a month after, and my greencard has an expiration date that says April 2012. (2 years). Is this a mistake of printing? Or the Immigration officer at POE was the one that made the mistake? how do I get them to correct it? and get it changed?

Thank you very much for all of your input.

Since you were married more than 2 years at the time of entry into the US, yes, you should have received a 10 year card. I think an Infopass appointment is in order. Good luck!
