So my spouse came on a k1. We married and filled for the AOS. Looking at the processing times for my city it could be 12 to 34 months. If it takes longer then two years would he get a 10 year card? Also, if he would get a 10 year card is there a way to delay the AOS interview if they scheduled it sooner?

If the marriage is 2+ years old at the time the I-485 is officially approved, then you'll get a 10 card and don't need to do ROC.

You cannot request that they delay the process. If they schedule the interview, go to the interview.

There is an option to delay the interview with a valid reason. USCIS determines if the reason is sufficient or not. Failure to appear would result in a denial.

I wouldn’t pay too much attention to USCIS published processing times. Especially right now during this COVID situation. Once the offices get back on track then they will catch up on the backlog and the processing times may then be faster.
 

It does happen that some people have such a long wait for the interview that they end up with a 10-year GC but I wouldn’t bet the farm on it happening in your case. 


Timeline in brief:

Married: September 27, 2014

I-130 filed: February 5, 2016

NOA1: February 8, 2016 Nebraska

NOA2: July 21, 2016

Interview: December 6, 2016 London

POE: December 19, 2016 Las Vegas

N-400 filed: September 30, 2019

Interview: March 22, 2021 Seattle

Oath: March 22, 2021 COVID-style same-day oath

 

Now a US citizen!

Thank you. I knew certain visas can be delayed at the NVC, so I wasn’t sure if it was an option for this too.  It’s nothing major just trying to avoid more paperwork and fees. Just have to relax and wait and see I guess

If the alien has citizenship aspirations then getting residency quicker gets that clock started sooner 


YMMV
