Case Status Update: 10-Year Green Card Approved!

10-Year Green Card Approved: Today Attorney Shaffer attended a marriage-based Green Card interview with a client, (hereinafter, Client "X"), who is a citizen and national of Trinidad and Tobago and her husband. X's husband is also from Trinidad and Tobago and became a naturalized U.S. Citizen in 2012. X and her husband met in 2011 at her husband's Uncle annual backyard BBQ party. X's husband saw her at the BBQ and went over to introduce himself. The couple has been together ever since and wed in 2013. Since X has been married to a U.S. Citizen for over 2 year, her approval today means that she is approved for a 10-Year Green Card and will not have to file in 2 years to remove conditions since she is a permanent resident as of today.

What is next for X?

X's husband will be filing I-130 petitions for X's two sons who currently still live in Trinidad & Tobago so that the whole family can finally reunite. In 3 years, X will also be able to file for her naturalization and become a U.S. Citizen. We wish you all the best of luck!
