TN Visa & Green Card Approval Based on Marriage - 1 Year

Client, a Canadian citizen married to a U.S. citizen, possessed valid TN visa status until May 2007. She filed for an extension of her TN status in April 2007, which USCIS subsequently approved.

The U.S. citizen spouse then decided to file a green card application on behalf of his wife. We filed an immediate relative petition (I-130), along with an Adjustment of Status application (I-485), and applications for work authorization (I-765) and travel permission (I-131) in August 2007.

The client had her biometrics appointment in October 2007 and received her work authorization (EAD) and travel permission (Parole) approvals at the end of October 2007. She received notification of her Adjustment of Status interview in July 2008.

In August 2008 she attended her adjustment interview, which went without complication, and received her I-551 permanent resident stamp in her passport that day. Her actual green card will arrive in the mail shortly.
