I recently applied for financial aid for college for my wife (K1 visa) after receiving her EAD/SSN. After applying we realized the aid also had a residency requirement, and were told we'll have to wait for the residency (1st green card?). My question is she will be a conditional permanent resident at that point and eligible for financial aid? So the way I understand the K1 process is the following: Temporary visitor/90d (nonimmigrant visa) - Temporary visitor/180d (after married to US citizen) - Conditional permanent resident (after file AOS based on <2yr marriage) - Permanent resident (after file for removing conditions) - US citizen (after 3yr from cond perm res)? Anyway, what type of permanent resident is unimportant for any benefit requiring permanent residency? And my wife is not a temporary resident after marriage?

BTW, I didn't find out about this site until last week. Wish I would have sooner. It's nice to know we're not alone. Thanks.

The conditional part won't matter. You are a permanent resident with all rights and responsibilities after a sucessful AOS interview.

"The fact that we are here today to debate raising America’s debt limit is a sign of leadership failure. It is a sign that the U.S. Government can’t pay its own bills. It is a sign that we now depend on ongoing financial assistance from foreign countries to finance our Government’s reckless fiscal policies."
