Hi Guys, I have not been here on this site for a long time. On January 30th, 2009 my husband finally received the notice from the Vermont Center stating the removal of conditional basis of lawful permanent residence.
Congratulation! your request for removal of the conditional to permanent has been approved..This is good news I wanted to share with you.
We filed last year sent documentation in January of 2008 and heard from the Center in December 2008 wanting more proofs, so we supplied with firmness and received the notice the first week of February2009..
However his extension of working and traveling has expired in January 2009. So now he can no longer work and travel until he gets his valid document (green card).

My question is: has any of you waited a long period of time before receiving your green card?

Today I have called the JFK Building in Boston (homeland security) and the person told me that it should be mailed within 30 days of being approved..

We are planning to go to Quebec City this weekend, I (wife)guess I will be going alone. No GC in the mail today.

See you all and good luck to all (us included) smiling! kicking.gif

I think you can take the NOA giving the one Year extension and the NOA for Approval and go to your local USCIS office. I think they can give you an extension pending receipt of his 10 year GC. Good Luck.

If you are able to make an INFOPASS appointment before this weekend have him go to his local USCIS office, bring his passport and the approval notice, advise them that he needs to leave the US this weekend and get an I-551 stamp in his passport. It will allow him to continue to work and to travel while waiting for his green card to arrive. My green card took about 2 weeks to arrive.

Absolutely agreed with Kathryn41. Add one point, should get the I-551 stamp two weeks before your extension letter expired, that way you can continue to work and travel without problem.

We applied to VSC also in Jan 2008 and haven't gotten an approval or RFE.

I called the USCIS hotline in Jan 2009 who told me they would forward our request to VSC because it had passed the normal processing time. We recieved a letter 3 weeks ago stating it would be another 60 days before they would make a decision. blink.gif

It is very rare though to be waiting since January though.
