Updating of permanent residence application

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My wife applied for my permanent residence as a green card holder on December 29, 2017 but has gotten her citizenship on 20th November, 2018. And we want to upgrade it. Please how do we do that? Is it by email or write a letter and post it or do I need to log on to their site for updating. Can someone guide me please.

 

Thank you.

Thank you. 

Where is your petition currently? USCIS at NVC? Either way your wife needs to call them and they will tell her how to send in her Naturalization certificate for upgrade.

Thank you. 

Your wife filed a petition.  When the petition is approved, YOU will will apply for an immigrant visa for spouse (IR1 or CR1 depending on how long you've been married).  When that visa is issued AND you have used it to enter the US, THAT is WHEN you will have permanent resident status.  Your wife did not apply for anything and certainly not permanent resident status for you.

 

That said, she can send a copy of her Naturalization Certificate to the USCIS Service Center handling your case but she'll need to follow up again with the National Visa Center, when they get the case, to make sure the upgrade has been processed.  Upgrading to petition from Citizen does not speed up the petition approval process but does greatly impact the process from NVC onward.
