There are few others on this forum who also got card valid for 10 years instead of 2 years. I would recommend taking an infopass appointment and talk to officer. They would be able to directly help with this.

[quote=Swe;6482]Hi Amazon, I have heard I am supposed to get a conditional GC, but got the 10 year GC.

Your above post dragged my attention and I am little concerned now. My welcome letter says that my GC is valid for 10 years which is exactly the same as mentioned. SO I didn't bother at all about the validity until i saw your post. What does your welcome letter say about the validity of your GC? Do you guys think the "conditional GC" clause applies to only those spouses who go through Consular Process?

The conditional GC applies to everyone who is married for less than 2 years. The reason for this is because of increase in fraud where people were getting married to obtain GC only. Hence to prevent this fraud, USCIS started issuing it for validity of 2 years only. After 2 years, it can be renewed for 10 years.

Hi, My wife also received a 10 years GC instead of a conditional one. We took an infopass and spoke to the officer. He said it was USCIS's error and we need to fill I90 (No fee!) and send back the card to USCIS. When requested, he was kind enough to stamp my wife's passport with a temporary GC. We have mailed the GC to USCIS and waiting for the conditional GC. I would suggest to do the same since it may trigger some issues during naturalization. Hope this helps.
