America PR

America PR
Permanent residence in the US – also known as America pr – is one of the most sought after statuses that can be held.

In order to qualify for America pr you must fulfill the criteria on one of the routes such as family, work or investor. However, even if you do tick all of the boxes, getting approved for America pr can still take some time and require a substantial amount of information and potentially documentation too.

Not everyone will automatically qualify for America pr so it is perhaps not surprising that the subject is often the center of intense internet speculation. Below are three of the most commonly heard myths about America pr and the real truth behind the rumor. 

You must receive a decision within 180 days of your interview for America pr

The US Citizenship and Immigration Services are responsible for processing any application for America pr and are the body that will assess the I-485 Green Card forms once received. It can be difficult waiting for a decision on America pr so hearing there is a maximum time limit on your wait can be a very positive thing to hear. Unfortunately it's not true.

USCIS do not have a time limit on how quickly they must reach a decision on your application. However, they try to ensure that everyone hears within four months but this is by no means guaranteed. 

Your Green Card application will be decided and communicated at the interview

It is possible to receive a decision about a Green Card application during the interview but this is not always the case. 

There are many reasons why a decision may not be communicated during the interview; it may even take some time afterwards before a final assessment can be completed. If new or additional information and/or documentation are provided during the interview, the Immigration Services Officer may feel that further time is required to carry out a review. The interview may also throw up new information which the Officer needs to go away and check or they may simply want to complete further security checks. In some cases it may be as simple as a visa number not yet being available.

Whatever the reason, do not assume that you will automatically be given a decision about your America pr during the interview. 

For cases of pr due to marriage, the woman must adopt her husband's name

If a woman is seeking a green card via means of marriage, there is no requirement for the man's surname to be adopted to make the visa application.

A woman can either choose to keep her maiden name, adopt her new husband's surname or alternatively create a hybrid of the two names, usually by means of hyphenation. All of these options are equally acceptable and none will result in a visa application being rejection or lowered in priority.
