I have 10 years Green card

11 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am Married to American Citizen and i just received a letter from USCIS wanting me to Remove my Conditions. and heres the biggest issue That when i came to USA they admitted me as a CR1 as my visa was also CR1, and after 30 days i received a green card that was CR1 and was valid untill May 2012, But on the other hand i was qualified for 10 years green card as at the port of entry time i was married with my wife more than 2 years, how ever i received 2 years green card and i sent my green card with errors back to Uscis along with 1-90 ( Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card ) to correct the error on my green card and after few months i received a i-797C Notice of action in the mail with a new receipt number that they have approved my petition i-90 and also sent me a bill that says.

Applicant/Petitioner fee $0.00

Biometrics Fee $0.00

Total Amount Received $0.00

Total Balance Due $0.00

Because it was error made by uscis they did not charge me any fee for i-90 or any fee for biometrics.

and i went to New Orleans for my biometrics after a month of that i received a new green card that is good untill 2020. and Category is IR-6.

Just yesterday i received the letter from Usics and they want me to use i-175 to remove my conditions and this is what the letter says .

The Records of this service indicate that you entered USA as a Conditional Permanent Resident on May 2010 in Accordance with Section 216 of the immigration and Nationality Act, you must file form i-751, Petition to remove conditions on Residence, Failure to do so may result in the automatic termination of your status,

You can obtain Form i-751 as well as filing information and fees from www uscis .gov. or call 1-800-375-5283.

i have a 10 years green card Category IR6 and i received a letter from uscis to remove my conditions , one department gave me 2 years green card and then they gave me 10 years green card and now they want me remove my conditions for another 10 years green card.

I think Uscis departments/Offices dont communicate with each other. Department that makes green card and department that deals in i-175 and and department that approves green cards.

I am sure there are also some people who are now Naturalized American Citizens and they also might get letter from uscis to remove conditionslaughing.gif its all because they dont communicate with each others.

Call USCIS or whoever sent you the notice to remove condition and inform them of your previous action and that you have the 10 year card therefore there is not need for a removal of condition. You are correct when you had it corrected previously the department that issued the 10 year card did not notify the department that sends out the notice or they did not update the database they use. I would do it as soon as possible before the May deadline they are tracking. Or just email them and scan a copy of your documents (green card and letter you got previously stating you did not have to pay anything) and request that they update the record.

I called uscis 2 times and first time the guy told me to send the photo copies of the green card and approval notice after i-90 on the same address where i got the letter from uscis and second time i talked on their help line and after listening to me she kep me on hold and then told me not to worry about it just ignore the letter rom uscis as u already have 10 years green card.

am thinking if if i dont solve this problem in proper way then in the future i will face difficulties again on this issue like when i apply for citizenship.

Did you ask to speak to a supervisor? The people who answer the phone for USCIS are call center employees. They work off scripts. You need to talk to a supervisor. Alternately, if you aren't too far away, you can schedule an Infopass at your local USCIS office and speak to an immigration officer in person about your situation.

You made a mistake in writing to them for a 10 year GC and they made the blunder of sending it to you without checking your file. You should have removed conditions instead of requesting a new card. She entered as a conditional resident under CR1 and even though you reached your two years of marriage timeline, her status was that of a conditional resident. It's not about when she entered the US but her status when you entered. You cannot just switch cards because you were married for 2 years. 

Try to see if you understand this example. A couple went on an interview 3 weeks before their second anniversary and was approved. They received their CR GC after their anniversary. Should USCIS have given them an IR6? No. The interview decision was made prior to their anniversary. Again, it is not about when she entered. She would still need to remove conditions. Many have removed conditions on their 3rd anniversary because they filed a year after their marriage date. If that were the case, persons could nationalize after 3 years of marriage rather than 3 years after being approved. That works out to 2 years of CR and 1 year as IR,  or 3 years of IR for those who received their IR status at the interview because they were already married 2 years. 

I received a 10 year GC, because I was married for 2 years at the time of the interview. It doesn't mean that after a year I would be eligible for naturalization. I would have to wait until 3 years after receiving my 10 years GC. Unfortunately for me, my husband passed away 5 months later and I went into the category of a regular permanent resident without special privileges. I can't naturalize until next year. 

That was a misunderstanding on your part and a major error on theirs. You should be pardoned. All the best.

You are incorrect, a little bit of reading on VJ will reveal that regardless of when the Visa is issued if the Immigrant enters the US After their 2 year wedding anniversary they are entitled to an IR-1 Classification which results in a 10 Year Greencard. CBP doesn't automatically recognize when aCR-1 holder enters after that magical date so the VJ users generally recommend that the immigrant point this fact out to the CBP officer processing their file.

One of 2 things happened in your case:

1) Their file was properly updated and USCIS doesn't really expect you to file ROC. The letter was sent because it's from an automated system and the predated trigger wasn't deleted when the case-file was updated to reflect the IR status of your entry.

2) USCIS somehow issued a 10 year Greencard without changing the status of residency in your case-file in which case USCIS is expecting you to file ROC.

If 1 then nothing will happen if you don't file ROC.

Either way you should make an infopass and bring the NOA1- from the I-90 filing along with your 10 yeard Greencard to get your case-file properly updated.

Thanks for setting me straight. Much appreciated. I researched the info.

What Is Conditional Residence?

If you have been married for less than two years when your foreign citizen spouse enters the United States on an immigrant visa, his or her permanent resident status is considered “conditional.” The immigrant visa is a conditional resident (CR) visa, not an immediate relative (IR) visa.

You and your spouse must apply together to USCIS to remove the conditional status within the ninety days before the two-year anniversary of your spouse’s entry into the United States on his or her immigrant visa. The two-year anniversary date of entry is the date of expiration on the alien registration card (green card). See Remove Conditions on Permanent Residence Based on Marriage on the USCIS website.

It seems to be different when you are migrating than adjusting. I just learned something new :). Thank you

I called Uscis just like ceadsearc, asked me to , i gave them my i-90 approval Notice Receipt number the lady on uscis help line told me to wait and hold as she transfered the call to her supervisor.

He told me that u dont have to worry about this letter just forget the letter and carry on with the life in USA, he specially told me with BOLD voice that anyone that has 2 years green card they have to remove conditions so they can get a 10 years green card which you already have so u dont have to worry about this matter , and he also told me that he can see i have a 10 years green card in the system.

You made a mistake in writing to them for a 10 year GC and they made the blunder of sending it to you without checking your file. You should have removed conditions instead of requesting a new card. She entered as a conditional resident under CR1 and even though you reached your two years of marriage timeline, her status was that of a conditional resident. It's not about when she entered the US but her status when you entered. You cannot just switch cards because you were married for 2 years.

This information is not right , people who are going through Administrative Processing they even know that when ur married more than 2 years to a USC at the time of POE u get a 10 years green card , thats why i was supposed to get a 10 years green card as i was married to my wife more than 2 years and 6 months.

You cannot just switch cards because you were married for 2 years.

I can switch my cards ,, Its same like if someone apply for a student visa they will get a student visa not a Green Card.

By the way i switched my green card category , my 2 years green card was CR1 and i sent it back to uscis and they sent me a bill for i-90 which was zero charges because it was their error.

If my alien Registration card did not had errors and i wanted to change it i would have had to pay $365 plus biometric fee $85.

and by the way i researched alot before i sent my 2 years green card (with errors ) to USCIS.

He told me that u dont have to worry about this letter just forget the letter and carry on with the life in USA, he specially told me with BOLD voice that anyone that has 2 years green card they have to remove conditions so they can get a 10 years green card which you already have so u dont have to worry about this matter , and he also told me that he can see i have a 10 years green card in the system.

This information is not right , people who are going through Administrative Processing they even know that when ur married more than 2 years to a USC at the time of POE u get a 10 years green card , thats why i was supposed to get a 10 years green card as i was married to my wife more than 2 years and 6 months.

I can switch my cards ,, Its same like if someone apply for a student visa they will get a student visa not a Green Card.

By the way i switched my green card category , my 2 years green card was CR1 and i sent it back to uscis and they sent me a bill for i-90 which was zero charges because it was their error.

If my alien Registration card did not had errors and i wanted to change it i would have had to pay $365 plus biometric fee $85.

and by the way i researched alot before i sent my 2 years green card (with errors ) to USCIS.

You seem to have missed my latest reply. All is well. All the best :)

I am Married to American Citizen and i just received a letter from USCIS wanting me to Remove my Conditions. and heres the biggest issue That when i came to USA they admitted me as a CR1 as my visa was also CR1, and after 30 days i received a green card that was CR1 and was valid untill May 2012, But on the other hand i was qualified for 10 years green card as at the port of entry time i was married with my wife more than 2 years, how ever i received 2 years green card and i sent my green card with errors back to Uscis along with 1-90 ( Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card ) to correct the error on my green card and after few months i received a i-797C Notice of action in the mail with a new receipt number that they have approved my petition i-90 and also sent me a bill that says.

Applicant/Petitioner fee $0.00

Biometrics Fee $0.00

Total Amount Received $0.00

Total Balance Due $0.00

Because it was error made by uscis they did not charge me any fee for i-90 or any fee for biometrics.

and i went to New Orleans for my biometrics after a month of that i received a new green card that is good untill 2020. and Category is IR-6.

Just yesterday i received the letter from Usics and they want me to use i-175 to remove my conditions and this is what the letter says .

The Records of this service indicate that you entered USA as a Conditional Permanent Resident on May 2010 in Accordance with Section 216 of the immigration and Nationality Act, you must file form i-751, Petition to remove conditions on Residence, Failure to do so may result in the automatic termination of your status,

You can obtain Form i-751 as well as filing information and fees from www uscis .gov. or call 1-800-375-5283.

i have a 10 years green card Category IR6 and i received a letter from uscis to remove my conditions , one department gave me 2 years green card and then they gave me 10 years green card and now they want me remove my conditions for another 10 years green card.

I think Uscis departments/Offices dont communicate with each other. Department that makes green card and department that deals in i-175 and and department that approves green cards.

I am sure there are also some people who are now Naturalized American Citizens and they also might get letter from uscis to remove conditionslaughing.gif its all because they dont communicate with each others.

This is exactly what happened to us to the letter!

 

We have yet to attend the ASC interview. Do you have any recommendations?

 

On another note ...

You are very right. If the couple enter the US after two years of marriage overseas, then the immigrant is entitled to 10 years GC without AOS!

The USCIS should have waited for POE's stamp on passport!
