If I understand correctly you want to know the process for I-485 filing based on your marriage to a USC. If you entered with inspection, you will file I-130/ 485. You will be notified of the interview. At the interview, you will be either informed your petition is approved or put for further review. If approved, the green card will arrive in mail.

After approval, you would be a Lawful Permanent Resident (Green Card). The card itself would arrive within 2-4 weeks after you are approved. BEFORE you are approved there will most probably be an interview with you and your wife
