Hi everyone,

Happy to announce that my GC came in the mail today!!

Just want to know what CF1 category means on the GC??

Do you guys carry your GC with you or just keep a photocopy of it in your wallet?

Also, I got notification that I was approved June 29th but it says resident since June 17th, why is that??

Thanks!! I am so excited :)


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

CF1 is the category for someone that adjusted based on a K-1, conditional card. (just noticed my husband's says CR6, which is 'Spouse of a U.S. citizen - conditional')

My husband carries a photocopy of his. It is too important to risk carrying it around all the time.

Perhaps they approved you on June 17th, but did not notify you until you June 29th?

Congrats!

The GC is conditional and valid for 2 year. Why would anyone want to carry a GC around? Passport? Birth certificate? Only bring most important document only when needed. ID or Driver's license would be the one you want to carry around at all times.

Congratulations!!!!

If that's true then that's great but really mean of them at the same time, because they could have saved me 12 days of extreme worrying!

I agree, just asking because the welcome letter says " Please carry it with you at all times if you are 18 or older. It is the law"

I will work on getting my license now :)

Very true! We all know how efficient they are about notifying and things like that. The important thing is, you have your green card. :yes:

All the best

Ha, I can tell that its half-meant :P Goodluck on your Journey, I really wish you all the best! :)

I don't know how, I just got an RFE that I needed to complete the medical.. :whistle: Probably could have tried to contest it but why bother.. I just did what I was told. It set me back about $190 but its not so bad I guess!

My card date was different as well approved and resident since date are different. It happens.

I carry my GC when I leave the state or when traveling etc. Have a copy of it front and back in colour in my car, also copy in my purse and wallet.
