Recommended Posts

I've got my GC today but I am very frustrated that its for 2 years. I am married for 3,5 years. My lawyer said that it's supposed to be for 10 years. I have an appointment with him next week! But can't wait to get the information how long it takes to fix it. Guys please if you had that experience, let me know pls.

Renewing a green after 2 years is actually a process known as removing the conditions on residence. A 2-year green card cannot be renewed. Lawful permanent residents with a 10-year green uses Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent residence so, did you already file form Form I-751 removal of conditions yet? If not then getting a 2 year green card would be correct.

Thank you for your reply, I filed I-495, but I married for 3,5 years.

You mean the Adjustment of status I-485 form? As I understand it the 2 year green card is only after you had your interview and was approved BUT you have within 2 years to file the I-751 for removal of conditions and then once approved  you will be issued a 10 year green card. It's more US immigration hoops and $$$ of course. By the way how long did you have to wait for you EAD card and interview? We just filed last week so I know we have awhile to go.

Your timeline shows your marriage on 1/14/2018....You might want to correct that.

Yours is a complex case in that you officially abandoned your AOS but somehow you were allowed back into the country despite having no AP or GC. This has obviously screwed up

the history that USCIS has on file for you.

  • December 2015 - I entered the US by K1 visa January 2016 - got married (with US citizen) February 2016 – we filed for AOS November 2016 - we had an interview. December 2016 – my green card was denied (the doctor’s mistake) January 2017- we filed the motion to reopen. December 2017 – we received a negative decision January 2018 – we filed for AOS AP again February 2018 – I had the biometrics appointment June 2018 – my AP was approved and sent to me. On April 8 2019 USCIS sent me NOA, I had my AOS interview May 23 2019, my case is under review.

You should schedule an Infopass appointment.  This is a plain error on their part.  It should be corrected with no new forms or fees.  It happens.  

 

You’re correct that a 10 year green card is automatic after 2 years passed since marriage.  Nothing affects that.

How did I abandon my AOS? I had my AP. I did not do anything wrong. People did a lot of mistakes, i suffered because of the doctor most off all

Thank you very much, I hope so. I do not really know what to do. I do not trust my lawyer to be honest.... I do not know who created this situation, we just keep paying a lot of money! It never stops!

If they retroactively approved the GC back to the first AOS interview, them the 2 yr GC would be correct...........but I'm just speculating........ @Mari181, what is the "resident since date" on the card?

If you gain permanent residence based on marriage, and it has been more than 2 years since the wedding at the time of approval, the green card must be the 10 years one. Doesn't matter when you entered or when you filed.
