missing letter

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I just checked online and my case says:

Application Type: CRI89, PETITION TO REMOVE CONDITIONS OF PERMANENT RESIDENT STATUS RECEIVED

Current Status: This case has been sent to another office for processing because it has jurisdiction over the case.

On February 25, 2008, we transferred this CRI89 PETITION TO REMOVE CONDITIONS OF PERMANENT RESIDENT STATUS RECEIVED to our VERMONT SERVICE CENTER location for processing because they now have jurisdiction over the case. We sent you a notice of this transfer. Please follow any instructions on this notice. You will be notified by mail when a decision is made, or if the office needs something from you. If you move while this case is pending, call customer service. We process cases in the order we receive them. You can use our processing dates to estimate when this case will be done. This case has been sent to our VERMONT SERVICE CENTER location. Follow the link below to check processing dates. You can also receive automatic e-mail updates as we process your case. Just follow the link below to register.

I never received the letter referred to (in red) and can't find how to contact them to get another copy sent. I tried their telephone maze and never managed to get anywhere. How do I get hold of a human at USCIS? I have a feeling there might be something missing that they need and as the letter is missing, I don't know.

I wouldn't worry about it. The letter simply repeats what you see online. There are no "instructions" you have to follow. We received the same letter when we were transfered. It told us nothing new because we already knew about the transfer from email/online status, and we never looked at or had need for the letter again.

A number of us who have filed at Texas since mid February are all in the same boat. We have been transferred to Vermont and none of us have received the above referenced letter notifying us of the transfer - nor have we received the NOA advising us of the receipt of the application either at Texas or at Vermont. It seems that only information we are receiving about our cases is on line - except, fortunately, for the biometrics letter. I had the exact same wording on my update - and no letter. Now it just states that it is pending at the center to where it was transferred - it doesn't even state the center anymore. Welcome to the club.

I guess I'll have to make an infopass appointment. My card expires in less than 3 weeks. My wife is getting agitated about it all since we had the biometrics letter and I had that stamped. She did point out there was information I should have sent with the form that I didn't so I'm concerned about that (I just downloaded the I751 form and completed it without noticing the accompanying notes which was a separate download). In any case I want to go home for a week or two sometime this summer and I guess I'll need some uptodate document from USCIS or I won't get back into the country.

Yes, you will have no problem getting the I-551 stamp at an INFOPASS appointment. Many of us have done that as well. The immigration offices are well aware of the problem. I didn't even have to ask for the stamp - I explained the situation and she just took my passport, checked my file using my current green card (A#), and stamped my passport. You will be able to travel with the I-551 stamp with no problem.

If there is information lacking, they will send you an RFE. Those generally seem to be making it through without a problem from VSC. I suspect, based on the time lines, though, that we have a while to wait. Enjoy your trip home.

I just returned from my chat with USCIS.

My card was due to expire on June 7th. He put a stamp in my passport until May 22nd 2009 but took my Permanant Resident card.

Apparently I can now come and go. I need to send the stuff I didn't send with the 751 application to Vermont together with a copy of my i751 biometrics interview form.

It seems that they're not sending letters out now, according to the official, about cases being forwarded to different centres. What I rather suspect is that the government underestimated the workload badly and are now trying to cut time and costs where possible in order to catch up.
