What is the validity of the CPR of a dependent who is immigrating 2 years after the main applicant?

My spouse is the primary applicant and she got her CPR in March 2019 and has already filed for her I-829 in December of 2020. I as a dependent applicant had opted for Follow to Join and shall be joining her in April this year (Visa stamped in Nov-20). My wife in her petition has mentioned my details and A-Number as an immigrant yet to join her. What shall be the validity of my CPR green card when I land in April ? When should I file for my I-829, after I land or 3 months prior to expiry of my CPR? Should it be a separate filing or modification of my wife’s I-829 filing?

You can try and be added but, most likely, you will have to file your own separate I-829.

You do not need to file a separate petition if the I-829 of your wife is still pending. You can just amend it.

You will file your I-829 petition separately and only during the last three months of your two-year conditional residence period.

You will have to file a separate I-829. You should get two years of conditional residence upon entry to the U.S.
