  1. Hi! I searched through all around VJ and google and cannot find a satisfactory answer to my question. There are some answers but I`m afraid they might be seriously outdated. We are currently in Germany on military orders since my husband is active duty. We`ll submit our petition to remove conditions (I-751) soon but don`t know which service center to send it. Before coming over here, we used to live in NY state and my husband`s home of record is WA state. Anyone with a current information? Thank you very much in advance. Jen
  2. This thread is for everyone who filed 10 before their GC expiration date or after their GC expired. Please post your experiences!
  3. I-751/ I-797- Biometrics

    We sent out I-751 on February 5th. Received (I-797/ Noa1) on February 12th. Anyone know length of time for Biometrics letter/notification or when we will get date for Biometrics? Thank you.
  4. Biometrics

    Wife from Philippines. Sent I-751 on Feb. 5th. Received I-797(Noa 1) on Feb. 12th. Anybody know when we might get Biometrics appointment or how long normally until actual Biometrics date?
  5. My husband and I have been married for 3 years. I came to the US with the student visa. We were studying at the same university in North Carolina. After graduate, he joins the Army. He has been moved a lot of different states. Right now he is in Hinesville GA. I had a trouble to find a job there in small town. I started to apply anywhere lucky I got a good job in New York. We try to see each other every month and holiday as much as we can. I am a conditional permanent resident, and I am going to apply to a permanent resident in the next 3 months. My husband and I don’t know where we can apply I-751. We consider that we are North Carolina resident. We bought a house together in NC, and entire his family are in town too. His army contract will end next 2 years and we both move back to NC. Here are few questions I need help with. Which state should I use to apply for my green card? Moving around with soldier will really affect my career special for the student just graduated like me. For my situation, what should I do when I applying for the permanent resident? Please give me advice and relieve me of my concern. Thank you
  6. Hi everyone! me and my wife are finally getting ready to send our I-751 packet out to remove her two year conditional status! Also our living situation is a bit different than most. We don't have a mortgage/rent as we have been living in my Dad's house to help us save money to buy our own house since 2015 and are just trying to get stable financially a bit. Is there anything special that a should mention about that? Here is our checklist and files we are sending. I-751– Joint Petition to Remove the Conditions on Residence Checklist Cover Page Form I-751 with Check for Form I-751 + Biometric fee $680 total Copies of Passports for (My Wife) showing her name change to mine after marriage Copies of Green Card (I-551) for (My Wife) (Front and Back) Copy of Joint Health Insurance letter showing status Copies of Health Insurance Cards Official IRS Tax Transcripts of Joint Fillings from 2015-2016 Official Bank letter showing Joint Account Copies of car insurance notices (My wife doesn't drive yet, she didn't in Japan either and is just starting to learn so no License yet but she has been added to our insurance of course) Copies of letters showing delivery to our address Letter from Veterinary Clinic showing pets/cats being registered to both of us 30 Photos of us together spanning the time since our marriage (We're not huge photo takers of ourselves) Does this look okay? I don't have a 401k, life insurance or anything just yet. Like I said we're trying to get financially stable like most younger couples but we love each other and are very happy. Thanks everyone!
  7. Hello Everyone, I filed for my removal of condition in late august 2017 and Got NOA-1 in first week of September 2017 from CSC. After that I did not hear back from USCIS. I recently changed my apartment and wanted to check how I can notify USCIS about my address change as It needs to be done within 10 days of moving. The instructions are not that clear on USCIS site. I found out from USCIS website that I have to fill AR-11 form. However when I tried filling up that form I am getting message that AR-11 Confirmation Number is required. Where can i get this confirmation code. It would be great if someone can suggest the steps of address change for removal of condition before bio-metrics is done. (As I do not have yet Bio-metric scheduled, I can not have a receipt number which shows online status of the application) . Any help, advise or suggestion would be highly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
  8. Waiting NOA I-751

    Hello and blessings to all, my wife and I submitted I-751 at the end of January. We sent it overnight 4 days before her resident card expired. The check was cashed but we haven’t received a receipt letter. Is anyone else waiting for an NOA from I-751? thanks so much!
  9. Hello, I submitted I-751 for removing conditions on my green card with all supporting documents in May 2017, received green card extension notice that same month, and completed biometrics the next month. My USCIS online status has been showing "Case Was Received" since then. Given that I still haven't received my new green card, can anyone tell me what sort of processing times they have experienced with the removal of condition? My case is assigned to the Vermont service center. Thanks, --Fijoy
  10. Dear All, Has anyone used their office/work address as their 'mailing address' on the I-751 form instead of their home address? I am planning to move to a pet-friendly apartment in August 2018 (When my lease begins) and my 2-year GC expires on August 9. It would give me peace of mind to apply after May 9, when I am eligible for submitting the I-751 but would like to avoid sending a 'change of address' form to the USCIS. This is because they might lose track and send documents to my previous home address. So, has anyone used their work address as the mailing address and physical address? If so, were there any issues? Thanks, J
  11. Hello! Me and my wife are preparing her packet to final I-751 to remove conditions on her residency. I have a label maker where I am going to type the names, location, dates and stick to the back of each 4x6 photo. Is this allowed/okay or should I only write on the back of the photo with ink? Thank you all!
  12. Hello all, and thanks in advance! My wife is applying to remove her conditions for her conditional permanent residency in about three months (I-751). We just want to see if we should improve on a few points. We married in January 2016; received the green card in August 2016. At the moment we have: 1. Joint Tax Return 2016 (W-2, tax form, and just requested transcript from IRS by mail); will file jointly in 2017, so this will be included (not sure if enough time to include the transcript) 2. Joint Lease for apartment since marriage 3. Renter's insurance (both names on this since Jan 2017) 4. Bank Checking & Savings account with both names since Jan 2016 5. Bealls Credit Card and Victoria Secret Credit Card (her name only, but with our address) 6. 3-year subscription for academic journal for her (her name only) with our address (the invoice dated Nov 2017) 7. Hotel Invoices for three vacations (two in my name, one in her old name because the Green Card was sent back (I-90, USCIS error) and she was traveling on her Passport) (we have pictures for all three vacations) 8. Tickets for events around town (some in both names, some in only mine; pictures accompany these as well) 9. Two invoices from 1-800-Flowers for our anniversary showing delivery to our address from florist (flowers from me to her) 10. Many, many pictures of us together with her family and my family 11. We will have affidavits from my father, my mother (my parents are divorced), my father's wife, my wife's mother, and my wife's sister. Issues: 1. She does not yet have a driver's license (she's taking the exam this month), so she is currently not on my car insurance. We expect to have the license and her to be on the insurance by the end of this month. 2. To save money, she kept her old phone company, Telcel from Mexico. I just added her on my line this month, so she should be on the next bill. 3. From July - December 2016, we used a cash back credit card to save money to make almost all purchases (it was paid each month from our joint bank account). From December 2016 until February 2018, we used a different cash back credit card (higher %) to make most of our purchases (it also was paid each month from our joint bank account). For both of these, only my name was on it. I just added her this month for the one we currently use, so her name should be on it next month. Based on this, is there anything to improve on? Should we send in any credit card statements even if it was only in my name OR only send in joint bank account statements? Can affidavits be sent by individuals living outside of the US? (My wife and her sister live in Mexico, but just 15 miles from where we live.) Thanks!!
  13. Hi guys, I filled to remove conditions on my green card last may. It’s been 257 days that my status says “Case was received” and it hasn’t changed since I fillied. Should I give USCIS a call and see what’s going on? Also, I wanna prepare everything and file for N-400 while the I-751 is still pending. I’ve been reading and they say it’s okay to do that. So I’m planning to prepare my documents and send them out. What do I need to send with n-400? Please someone who can help I’d be really grateful. Thanks!
  14. Good afternoon everyone, I have a very important question since I am about to file my I-751 waiver. I have been thru a lot with my ex husband. unfortunately no serious evidences against him. Only my word and couple picture of the damage he had done. Injuries, etc. I also do not have everything because I left and literally never looked back, dont talk to him since the divorce, nor his family. If I file a divorce waiver how do I mention abuse in it?? write a statement? because I feel like I should explain why i have missing evidences, and that i have photos of abuse but did not feel that they are enough according to their list of evidences on USCIS website, so that is why im only filing the divorce waiver. ?! something like that? or just go check both boxes? PLease help!! God Bless everyone
  15. Hi all-- My husband and I have been living with my parents for the entirety of our time in the States. Therefore, we have no utility bills, deeds, etc, to provide with the i-751 form. I saw some older threads suggesting I get a notarized affidavit from my parents to support that we've been living here. Should I also scan their driver's licenses to support that... ? Any other ideas on what I might provide? Thank you!!
  16. Hi VJers, We filed to remove conditions on my husband's green card at the end of November 2016. That was at the CSC, so we have a ways to wait still. His extension letter has now expired, and so we have made an appointment to go to our nearest field office (3 hour drive, ugh) for a passport stamp. However, his passport from his home country will expire in May of this year. I seem to remember reading somewhere that the stamped passport will be valid for proof of legal residency in the US (substitute for a greencard) even if the passport itself is expired. Can someone confirm that for me? He is not planning to travel internationally until he has the new card, but is concerned about having proof of residency. It seems like getting the passport renewed will be a longer and more arduous process. Thanks!
  17. What is the preferred type of envelope to mail the contents of the I-751? I used a large Yellow envelope for the K-1 Fiance visa like this: or should I use a Priority Mail Envelope? Thanks everyone!
  18. Hi everyone! Did anyone try to convert their pending Removal of Conditions case into Divorce Waiver? Squeeze of the story: We submitted joint petition back in 2016, then in 2017 we decided to divorce and now I have my final divorce decree on hands while I-751 case is still pending. I found an official Memo which covers this situation and says that it is possible to convert one case into another without the need of reapplying Now I am gathering information on that subject and specifically I am interested if anyone could provide a Cover Latter sample for that case? Thank you!
  19. Dear Visa Journey MIlitary/Veteran/military families community first of all thank you to those who served/are serving. So I am currently waiting on my Removal of conditions I am a June 2017 filer on the California Service Center so unfortunately judging by other folk's experiences I am looking at a looooong wait 14-18 Months The issue is that I am scheduled to ship to Marines Bootcamp this coming early August and if current trends continue I fully expect for my ROC application to still be pending by then. In light of that I am a little concerned about possible Requests for evidence sent in my absence and God forbid even an interview. I know it sounds ridiculous but they (I have seen it with many people) wait literally over a year to start reviewing your application and oftentimes they send you a RFE after over a year of backlog. Also, I know I-751 interviews are rare, but what would happen if they call me and my wife for an interview while I am in bootcamp, what can I do? Is not possible for me to request a leave of absence from training. Also with regard to RFE's I am the one who has always taken care of all the immigration paperwork. Any advice as to how to prepare everything for my spouse who is inexperienced on this processes, so she can successfully respond to an hypothetical RFE? By the way for those curious about it the Marines does take in recruits for enlistment with conditional I-55's 1 the only difference is that due to newly passed regulations their waiting period is way more extensive than regular (citizens) applicants. Thanks! Quote

  21. Hello, I'm filing I-751 in February 2018. I see a lot of people have posted about the evidence for I-751 in the past. I have checked and read many many of them. Now I need to get the opinions from you regarding to my evidence list. Please give me a a few thoughts about my list when you have a chance. Our driver's licenses (Showing our current address) Green card (Both side) Both federal/state tax return with W2 forms and Tax transcript for 2015 and 2016 Our joint car lease agreement Our joint apartment lease agreement (2016 &2017) Joint credit and debit cards and the transaction history since 2016 to current Utility bill statement showing our current address ( We do not have joint utility accounts. See below) Car Registration cards showing both of our names Sam's Club(Whole sale market in CA) joint cards and account information Our joint health/dental/car insurance cards Our joint life time benefit information showing my wife(U.S. Citizen) is the beneficiary Phone call history since 2016 to current Christmas Card from 2017 Pictures since our marriage to current Affidavit Letters from our mutual friends/family (2 from my side, 2 from U.S. citizen side, and her parents) We do not have a joint utility account (My name on cable, but my wife has electricity) but it's showing our current address. In the past posts, they said that it will not be too much problem as long as it's showing the same address, but I want to hear your opinions. I see many people did not file Marriage certification, passport, Social security card and many other documents that we have submitted before . So I will probably not send these this time. But, again, please feel free to give me the feedback. Also, many of our evidence has my wife's maiden name. I will explain on both cover letter and a letter of explanation for the evidence. Would that be good enough? Thank you for your help!
  22. Hi there, I'm new to this forum so please excuse me if i'm not doing this correctly. 2 years ago, while on a condition green card I noticed a mistake in the expiration date. It stated that my card expired one year earlier than it should. I sent the card off with an i-90 to be corrected and 9 months later it was time to have my conditions removed! I hadn't heard anything from USCIS after attending a biometrics appointment regarding the card correction. I didn't have the card to send back with my i-751 because I had sent if off 9 months earlier but that hasn't caused a problem with my condition removal as of yet. I received a letter saying they are processing my case to have conditions removed and cannot correct the incorrect card because it was a conditional card. I had no idea they couldn't correct conditional cards. The real issue here is that now I have the i-751 extension letter granting me the 1 year extension but no expired green card to accompany it. I believe this makes travel very hard, if not impossible. I haven't been back to the UK in a long time and am eager to see family. What steps should I take to get my old expired green card back so that I can travel this year. I sent of the i-751 in October 2017 so potentially have another 10 months when I cannot travel. I got myself in a bit of pickle, any suggestions?
  23. Hi, We are in the process of filing the I-751 Change of Status of the Green Card. Do we have to request or do a change of status with Social Security before we file the I-751? Thanks KG
  24. This is a question for the I-751/N-400 combo filers from Chicago, it seems like in Chicago there isn't a combo interview for your I-751 and N-400. From the looks of it or at least from reading 2-3 online experiences, it seems like you first have a N-400 interview, then an I-751 joint interview followed by another N-400 where you are finally approved . This seems to be causing significant delays as opposed to waiting out for the I-751 approval and then applying for the N-400.Perhaps I am getting the timelines wrong, but can anyone from Chicago who applied for their N-400 while their I-751 was pending share their experiences ?
