Visa Approved (k1) visa Green card timeline

green-card-timeline

Below is a sample of I485 Permanent Residency/Adjust Status or Green card timeline. This is actually my timeline that I want to share to everyone who are also applying for green card.

The time frame of a green card depends on the processing times in different states. Time frame ranges from 3 months to 1 year.

If you file everything completely, it will help you to not get delayed for your green card processing. Proper documentation and a marriage interview preparation for both immigrant and the US spouse sponsor are very important for a successful process and in obtaining the green card. Good luck to all the newly married couples!

Embassy Review : The lady CO was very nice. SHe said my interview went well but they must wait for the medical result. I was told in the releasing window that I have to wait for my visa because my medical result did not arrive yet. It has been 15 days and it is still under administrative processing.

Tips for a successful filing of I 751 Removal of conditions

k1-visa-adjustment-of-status

Tips for a successful filing of I 751 Removal of conditions

Form I-751 fee : $ 505.00

Biometrics        : $   85.00

TOTAL            : $  590.00

After my interview for the 2 year conditional green card, the immigration officer informed me and my husband of what exactly we need to do after 2 years.

He told us that 90 days before 2 year conditional green card expires, we have to submit my I 751 Removal of conditions. He has mentioned if the papers are delayed upon submission, there will be a penalty for not submitting on a timely manner. Your I 751 must contain a load of documents that will supply as proof of real marriage. Below are the list of what you can possibly attach in your I 751 packet.

 

  • Bank statements – print a screenshot of your joint bank account every 4 months.
  • Travel – keep copies of itinerary of travel, such as flight ticket, hotel booking, receipts of the activities during the trip
  • Photos – along with your itinerary, you have to take photos of the places you went to and specifically the scenery that describes the place you went to
  • House title – if you own a property, a house title that will show both you and your spouse’s name will be an advantage
  • Adoption papers – if your foreign wife or husband has a child/children that you have adopted, the adoption papers also serves as a proof of genuine marriage.
  • Credit cards – spending is a way to prove the marriage so a photocopy of joint credit cards is a strong proof that you can submit
  • Car title – if you have bought a car within the 2 year period, you can provide a document that shows both you and your spouse name in the title.
  • Life insurance – if you have purchase a life insurance and your spouse is the beneficiary, you can submit a copy of a document that shows your spouse as the beneficary
  • Other properties that will show both your names in the title.

He also mentioned that if our future I 751 packet is filed completely (with evidences as much as we can file),when they review it, they will approve it immediately. He said that once they review it and they are satisfied, they approve it fast and do not require for another interview appearance anymore. However, when the i751 packet does not meet their satisfactory, they put it aside and let it sit there for 6 months until they decide to review the packet again. If they are not satisfied with  what has been submitted, they may give you an interview notice for another interview after 2 years and it is not gonna be pretty. It wont be a nice interview like we when you appear for 2 year conditional green card.  Once the removal of conditions I 751 has been removed, they will issue  a 10 year green card.  

He mentioned that on the third year, an immigrant can apply for citizenship N400 even if your I751 removal of conditions has not been removed yet. However,  if your i751 is still pending, you may have a problem  and every application has expiration date to take action and you might waste your money ($600).

Lastly, he said that if you speak English well, you can proceed to applying for US citizenship on your 3rd year, dated back when you first receive your 2 yr conditional green card.

Goodluck to all of ussss!

2 year conditional green card

green card yuri sincero

What is a 2 year conditional green card?

A 2 year conditional green card is given to foreign fiances who came into the United States under a k1 visa. Under a k1 visa, the foreign fiance must get married within the 90 days and apply for adjustment of status. A 2 year conditional green card will be granted after a USCIS interview. A 2 year permanent residence or 2 year conditional green card is granted base on the condition that you have a legitimate marriage to your US petitioner.  The permanent resident must apply for removal of conditions 90 days before it expires to remain as a permanent resident in the US.

What is the purpose of a 2 year conditional green card?

2 year conditional green card serves as an identification and a proof that you are a permanent resident in the US. It also serves as an ID that you can use in applying jobs and other legalities that requires a valid government issued identification.

When can I receive a conditional green card?

green-card

You can receive your conditional green card after they approved your i 485 Permanent Residency application. The conditional green card processing takes 5 months to 1 year.

Why do I need a conditional green card?

2 year conditional green card is needed because you use it as an identification while you are waiting to get a US citizenship. It serves as your re-entry permit whenever you travel outside the United States.

How do I remove the conditions of my 2 year conditional green card?

You can apply to remove the conditions of your green card 90 days before the 2 years expires. You must submit form I 751 Removal of conditions along with proof of marriage with the same husband who sponsored you,the immigrant when you first applied for your green card. You must be able to supply a full evidence of your marriage in order to satisfy USCIS that your marriage is real. If you happen to have divorce while you are under 2 yr conditional green card, you can still apply for removal of conditions. You must submit evidences that your marriage were entered in good faith. Your case will then undergo further investigation.

Report of Marriage -Yuri

report-of-marriage-timeline

This article is shared and written from the author’s experience. -Yuri Sincero

Submission of Report of Marriage. On October 24,2015, I submitted my Report of Marriage. There are actually 2 ways to submit it, my mail or walk-in.  Either you can walk into one of the Philippine consulate in the united states or you can mail a package to the assigned Philippine Consulate. You can find the consulates on this link:  http://www.philippinessanfrancisco.org/index.php?page=consulate-finder-main

My designated Philippine Consulate is in San Franscisco, so I had to mail it to them through USPS.

Received a call from Philippine Consulate San Francisco.  After submitting the Report of Marriage package, I received a call on November 23,2015.  The consulate requested send four (4) photocopies of my husband’s divorce decree.  My husband has been divorced before, so I had to send 4 copies of his divorce decree to the consulate.  I was a little confused and frustrated as it was not on the instruction on their website but I sent it anyway.

report-of-marriage-timeline

Sent a package to Philippine Consulate San Francisco.  On November 23,2015, I sent the package back to them containing the photocopies of divorce decree.

Received a package containing Report of Marriage.  On Nov 27,2014, I received a package from San Francisco Philippine Consulate with my original Marriage Certificate and a personal notarized copy of Report of Marriage with a seal.

Note: Marriage abroad and divorces are acknowledged by Philippines so no worries!  If you do get divorce, you can report it to them and it will be dissolved in a few months.

Ead card:                      Feb 25,2015

Interview Appointment:  Nov 02, 2015

Interview result:             Approved

I just had my interview today for my 2 year conditional green card.  It was so intense.  It felt like I just had another k1 fiance visa interview at the US Embassy manila.

The immigration officer asked for 3 IDs + SSN Card and ID from my husband:

1. Passport
2. Ead card (employment authorization document)
3. state ID ( State Instruction/Learner’s permit)

The USCIS Immigration Service Officer asked about every item on the i485 form that we submitted.  Questions Asked:

What is your full legal name?

What is your maiden name?

What is your husband’s name?

What is your husband’s date of birth/place of birth?

What is your current address?

Where was your previous address?

What was your address in the Philippines?

Are you currently employed?

 

He asked most of the questions from Part 3 of the i485:

Have you EVER, in or outside the United States:

  1. Knowingly committed any crime of moral turpitude or a drug-related offense for which you have not been arrested?
  2. Been arrested, cited, charged, indicted, convicted, fined, or imprisoned for breaking or violating any law or ordinance, excluding traffic violations?
  3. Been the beneficiary of a pardon, amnesty, rehabilitation decree, other act of clemency, or similar action?
  4. Exercised diplomatic immunity to avoid prosecution for a criminal offense in the United States?

Have you received public assistance in the United States from any source, including the U.S. Government or any State, county, city, or municipality (other than emergency medical treatment), or are you likely to receive public assistance in the future?

Have you EVER engaged in, conspired to engage in, or do you intend to engage in, or have you ever solicited membership or funds for, or have you through any means ever assisted or provided any type of material support to any person or organization that has ever engaged or conspired to engage in sabotage, kidnapping, political assassination, hijacking, or any other form of terrorist activity?

  3. Knowingly encouraged, induced, assisted, abetted, or aided any alien to try to enter the United States illegally?
  4. Illicitly trafficked in any controlled substance, or knowingly assisted, abetted, or colluded in the illicit trafficking of any controlled substance?

Do you intend to engage in the United States in:

  1. Espionage?

Have you EVER ordered, incited, called for, committed, assisted, helped with, or otherwise participated in any of the following:

  1. Acts involving torture or genocide?

Have you EVER:

Limiting or denying any person’s ability to exercise religious beliefs?

 

Have you EVER been a member of, or in any way affiliated with, the Communist Party or any other totalitarian party?

He asked a few personal questions such as:

What drives you crazy about your husband?  

How did he propose?

Was he romantic

Did he give you a ring? NO

Why? Bec he said he wanted to wait to give me a nice expensive ring

The immigration officer did not inform me if I was approved or not and told us we will get the result within this week and will probably receive the official result by mail after 2 weeks. I hope this will come out as a positive result. He also told me that I can check my status in the website in the afternoon to see if it has been reviewed and updated.

Website: uscis.gov

I was extremely nervous. I was asked a lot of questions and were confirmed of whatever I wrote in my I 485 application. Both of us were asked questions about our relationship and our marriage. Until this minute,(2pm) I am still tensed from my interview this morning.

At this time 2:23pm, I had checked my status 3 times to check if I was seeing it right. Lol. It says my new card is being produced. Does it mean I am approved? I am so overwhelmed.green-card

Here is the document they gave us after the interview:

green card marriage interview letter
green card marriage interview letter

My tips:

For people who are waiting for interview, be prepared and have an extra copy of what you have submitted for i 485.  They also posted it in the interview appointment notice that they will send to you.
They will also ask additional proof of marriage from you, such as your photos together, travels, bank statement that shows both of you and your spouse names, health insurance, updated Income tax returns form 1040 and w2’s that shows your name (the immigrant) in your husband or wife income tax return.

Here are a few frequently asked questions on the I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status, green card process.

Q: How long does it take for me to receive the Employment Authorization Document (EAD) card?

A: Estimated time to receive EAD card is 1-2 months from the time of filing the I-485, Application to Register Permanent Residence or Adjust Status.

Q: When I arrived in the US under k1 visa, can I work immediately?

A: You can only work legally when you receive your EAD card.

A: A price of $1070 with inclusion of Biometrics is a fixed price.  Either you apply for Employment authorization or not, the payment will remain the same.

Q: After arriving in the US, what should be the very first step I for my green card application?

A: Its best to get a Social security number first if you plan on getting a job quickly. You have to do it after your 14 days of stay in the US or before your I-94 expires. SSN do not accept I94 that is prior to 14 days of expiration date.  Some people get married prior to the SSN so that they can put their married name on their SSN.

Q: In i485 form, there’s a question that says, did the immigration check you? Am i supposed to say yes or no?

A: The answer for that is yes. We all undergo immigration inspection before leaving the airport. You can also refer to the video.

http://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/files/form/i-693.pdf

Q: How long do I have to wait before my green card arrives?

A: It depends on the state.  Base on what I have observed, it takes from 5 months to 1 year.  Some states process it faster than the others.

Q: When I finish submitting my I 485 application, are there other things that I have to submit?

A: If your i485 package has been submitted with all the appropriate evidence, there are no other papers you have to submit to USCIS.  However, if you are from the Philippines, you have to report your marriage to a Philippine Consulate to be recorded in the home country.

Q: After I submit my green card application, is there another interview that I have to go to?

A: Yes. Before they issue the 2 year conditional green card, you and your spouse may be be interviewed by the USCIS local office to verify the relationship.
