Officer at POE gave me wrong information

Hi all!! 

I wanted to share my experience with LAX Customs and Border Patrol. Although the process was very easy and painless (only asked me two questions and I was out the door in ten minutes), the officer gave me some wrong or outdated information. 


Once he processed my paperwork and stamped my passport, he advised me that I should marry within 90 days. That was all fine and dandy until he said that once I married I would have to go to an USCIS field office with the original marriage license and a notarised copy and I would received a temporary green card on my passport. 


I don't believe this information is correct, since I have to file for AOS and everything, but I obviously didn't say anything. I called USCIS today to notify them of an address change and told them about what the officer said, and the agent confirmed this information was incorrect. The agent also said that green cards take two years to be approved, so that was also not right according to the processing times we can see.


I don't know if the CPB officers get periodical training on procedures, but they probably should!!


Anyway, just wanted to share my experience!

The cbp was confuse with the type of visa, he or she was thinking when others immigrant arrive to the country they can do that, because their green cards were approved at the consulate.

could be!! I'm just confused because he knew everything else about the K-1 visa and wrote K-1 visa on my envelope with all the papers!
