I485 approved - Green Card for 10 years?

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: Austria

Yesterday I had the notice in the mail that my application has been approved!! :-)

The letter also says that my card will expire in 10 years. Shouldn't it be 2 years? Did they make a mistake? I thought you get the conditional GC when you'd been married for less than 2 years when you file the application and we'd been married for about 2 months back then :-D

Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, I'm just wondering why :-D We'll see what it says on the card.

Did anybody else get their GC for 10 years?

If you have not been married for 2 years by the time your green card is approved but you receive a green card that has an expiry date ten years in the future then you need to send it back pointing out their error. This is because you are required to do removal of conditions and due to the card not saying the right thing you may have difficulty doing this if you don't get it corrected.

Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but pretty sure two years of marriage as of the APPROVAL date (not application date) is the criteria for 10 year card.

If that's still not the case, then yes, you need to notify USCIS of their error.
