Conditional residence

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


I applied for my husband's green card before two years of our marraige and his visa was approved in March. Our two year wedding anniversary was in December. Will he get a two year conditional greencard when he comes to America or will he get the normal one? His visa does say CR-1 instead of IR.

calendar math:

if it's more than 2 years between date of marriage and POE date,

then have foreign spouse to ask the CBP goon at the POE

to change the designation, showing the marriage certificate,

all on the POE day at the POE event.

Long-Haul flights are killer, usually folk are bleary-eyed and cranky when coming off of a 13 hour flight,

so have yer foreign spouse write a handwritten note about it, paperclip it inside the passport, first page.

Printed visa designation not matter on this, what matters is how successful the foreign spouse is at the POE with a CBP goon.

Go Get Em, and Good Luck !

Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

***** Moving from AOS from Family Visa forum (as IR-1s do not do AOS) to IR-1 Progress subforum *****

Your husband should be getting a 10 year greencard.
