K1 AOS after 1st anniversary conditional or permanent green card

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I have a question, my husband and I got married on jan 19 last year, unforeseen circumstances didn't let us apply right away, so we applied on March, I got my work permit and last Saturday I got the waiver interview letter, it says to wait, six months from now will be December, my question is; if they actually do wait till december- January to touch my case again, send me a RFE for the expired medical( because reading waiver cases they do), getting the new info and finally approved my case after jan 19(second anniversary). Will I get a conditional or a permanent gc?

I honestly was rooting for an interview because we have nothing to hide, we were together for 3 years before getting married, one year together when I was in NC as a j1 visa holder, but it didn't happen, so now I'm trying to see the silver lining of this waiver, but I read that if you are a k1 you will still get a conditional gc.

What do you think?

I think if the GC is approved after your second anniversary' you will get the 10 yr. card.

Good Luck!

If you married Jan. 19, 2014, then you will receive a 2-year conditional card if your case is approved before Jan. 19, 2016.
