I have been married for more than 2 years now. My CR-1 visa was issued just this August 2010. I would like to ask what will be the next step once I go to the US? When will I receive my green card? And should I still file for adjustment of status or lift I should just file for lifting of my conditional status to permanent resident? Please help. Thank you

If you have been married for more than two year at the time of entry, you should receive a 10 year green card.

This is correct. A CR1 is an immigrant visa. Your green card was approved when your visa was approved. You should get an unconditional green card if you were married more than two years at the time you enter the US, so you don't need to remove conditions. You'll get the card within a few weeks of entering the US. Be sure to check the expiration date on the card and make sure it's valid for 10 years.

**moved from "AOS (Family)" to "CR-1 Process & Procedures" as this is a CR-1 issue, not an AOS issue**
