ROC Extention Letter Expiring

9 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Make an Infopass appointment at your local office, take his passport, original (expired) green card, and original (expiring) extension letter/NoA. Ask for an I-551 stamp in his passport. They will probably retain his expired green card, but the stamp in his passport will serve as temporary proof of LPR status for all purposes, including travel and employment.

Guaranteed, if your NoA is about to expire. 


After it does, you don't have any proof of LPR status, and so USCIS is obligated to provide it to you in the form of the I-551 stamp.

My hubby sent for his ROC last February 2016 and recieved his extension letter. Now we're concerned what to do since the letter is expiring soon. Any help greatly appreciated :)


My husband is also a Feb 2016 filer.  He had his infopass appointment today at the Manchester Field Office (NH) and he got stamp in his passport.  They did keep his expired green card as the stamp replaces it.


Feel free to follow the Feb 2016 Filers thread here:
