Congratulations.

 

Unfortunately she shouldn't have received a 10 yrs green card. That's a mistake that happens sometimes and people get in trouble when they should remove the conditions (because they don't do it, thinking they don't need it). She's gonna have to return the green card and wait to receive the 2 yrs one.

Just to clarify. The interview you mentioned is the k1 interview or the AOS? The way you wrote it made me think that the k1 interview was 5 months prior to the AOS interview. This way she wouldn't be eligible.

 

If it's the AOS interview, and it's been more than 2 years, you're fine.

The old USCIS jalopy is so old, rundown and in need of serious repair. Their missing of their own deadlines is the obvious clue that USCIS is truly in bad shape. Two glaring examples of the  types of problems brought about by the overwhelming service load dumped on USCIS is the subject of this thread.

 

Namely, that it takes so long for people to get their AOS processing completed in the prescribed time, The people file their paperwork as instructed and two (2) years elapse and USCIS cannot process the AOS paperwork within the allotted timeframe. So the couple should rightfully be provided with a 10-yr GC.

 

The other glaring example of USCIS problems is when a couple submits their I-751 petition during the correct timeframe, and then USCIS drops the ball during the ROC processing. USCIS takes so long that the LPR becomes also available to start their N-400 citizenship process while still awaiting the completion of their ROC processing. There are even recent instances where the have had their N-400 citizenship applications approved, yet the ROC petition is still awaiting processing and approval.

 

These situation are starting to happen with more regularity. This merely exposes the glaring need of a serious revamping of the entire immigration system. :ot:The politicians on BOTH sides of the aisle are responsible for this sad state of affairs. Our nations leaders are either too busy trying to play "king for life," while the other side is trying to dethrone the self-anointed king, and the rest of the more pressing issues facing our great country, both international and domestic have been kicked to the curb. I say kick ALL of the politicos from BOTH sides to the curb. They certainly are not working for the citizens, nor for the sake of our dear country. 

 

Good luck on your immigration journey.

Thanks for this I agree it needs a revamp its so backed up its not even funny then. Tbh I think nyc has the longest wait times.

Congrats to you both yay! My interview will be in the next two weeks. If you’re married for over 2 years when you file your AOS i think automatically you will get 10 yr GC.

K1 AoS hardly ever takes 2 years these days, which means that people that get a 10 yr green card when adjusting from a K1 visa probably did not file before their i94 expired.

 

And we all know what an expired i94 means: subject to deportation, likely unable to get a DL, insurance and many other things.

 

Just a reminder for those that come to this thread and start thinking about "delaying" their application to skip RoC.

Based on the OPs timeline they filed for the AOS in January 2018 two months after marriage in November 2017.  The OP did not show the POE date, so not sure if the AOS was filed before the I94 expired.  But just looking at an AOS filing in January 2018 and approval at the end of November 2019, it appears that the delay was due to processing, not the case of someone trying to avoid ROC.

 

To the OP, congrats!  Fortunately, there was a sort of silver lining due to the length of time it took as now you don’t need to file the I751.

Oh, for sure. OP's case is special just for the fact the GC arrived 5 MONTHS after interview, when typically we see them get finalized in less than one. 

 

I am aware that there are (ridiculous) delays in processing, but my reminder is specifically to those that will see this thread and many others mentioning getting a 10yr green card due to being married for 2 years and deliberately delaying their AoS.

All I can say is AMEN to this. We filed for ROC 17 1/2 months ago and filed N-400 7 months ago. and we are in the Blackhole of logjams Houston.

 

To the OP. Congratulations on your journey finally getting some conclusion. I have some friends waiting over 2 years still for their green card, EAD took 1 1/2 years. This immigration mess needs looking at. For real.
