Yes. You'd get a 10 year green card if you had already been married to a US citizen for 2 years at the time you adjust status. You'd also have to submit an I-130 petition with your AOS application.

I strongly advise you don't wait two years after marrying your fiance before you submit your AOS application.

You need to read what Jim said he said DO NOT WAIT 2 YEARS to file AOS just to get 10 yr GC as you are out of status all that time. Once you get married you file AOS and will get 2 yr GC and then 90 leading to your 2 year anniversary you apply for removal of conditions and you get 10yr GC then. NO big deal.


Divorced !st November 2012.

Tina, don't file it with I-130, it could lengthen your AOS process, especially since you came on a k1 and I don't think you are waiting 2 years to file.. Just follow the guides here on VJ or you can ask us for help too :) Goodluck on your interview, I know you'll do well! :)


My Journey:

We met through a study-abroad program in Shanghai, China in August of 2009

We got engaged March of 2010

I received my K1 VISA in 6 months (June-December 2010)

We were married 04/02/2011
I received my conditional 2-year greencard (AOS) in 2.5 months with no interview (April-June 2011)

Our son was born 02/03/2013

I received my masters degree in Speech-Language Pathology 04/17/2013

I received my 10-year greencard (ROC) in 3 months with no interview (March-June 2013)

My husband returned from deployment 06/20/2013

My naturalization journey took 4 months (April-August 2014)

I became a US citizen on 08/01/2014

Received passport in 3 weeks (regular processing)

Thank you, VJ! smile.png

It depends what visa you came on. Since you came on a K-1 visa, you will file a I-485 and related forms based off of your approved I-129f and your marriage within 90 days of entering the US.

Other people, say someone who was here on a student visa, would have to file a I-130. This does not apply to you.

YOU DO NOT NEED TO FILE A I-130.

Follow this guide
