Hello,

For the best of my knowledge you Green Card should be your work permit as well.You might be issued authorization to work while on another visa status but the moment you become immediate relative(spouse of a US citizen) you will be granted legal permanent residence with the issuance of I-551 known as green card and it is valid for your resident permit and work permit.

IF you are in doubt call USCIS and talk to a person and they will explain it to you.


May God Bless Us All In This New World.We All Have Come From Afar And We Need The Lord's Guidance For Success.

NB:I am not an Immigration Attorney, All i say here is based on my personal experiences through K-1 visa process and CR1/IR1 visa process.

Moved from K1 Process & Procedures to Adjustment of Status from Family Based Visas forum; topic is more germane to the AOS process than it is to the visa process.

Your green card authorizes you to work, once that was in your possession, the Employment Authorization card became moot.

I would add: check the expiration date of your green card, that's the one you need to care about. Don't forget to renew it in the 3 months before its expiration.

That's not true - you don't automatically get a green card the moment you are married to a USC. You have to apply for it and be approved.
