i am very stressed because due to financial problems i cannot afford to file my i751 until very close to the deadline, therfore i do not expect my extention letter to arrive before i return.

any help would be greatly apreciated

As long as your greencard is still valid when you land at your POE you have nothing to worry about. A valid Greencard is valid until the date of experation show on the card.

Even if you had an extension letter you would not need it because it only extends your greencard from the expiry date for 1 year. So as your Greencard has not yet expired you dont need an extension letter.

Regardless of money constrain you must file your I-751 in a "timely manner" as per instructions...to avoid issues that other people have encountered, is not about WHEN you send it through the mail is WHEN they received it. So be SURE you get a "received postmark" before your GC expires.

Good luck!

The problem will come when it expires and you find yourself out of status. I don't believe there are extensions if you don't file your I-751 promptly. Be careful.

My point exactly. If they do not sent in their I-751; the spouse is out of status. As simple as that. Regardless indeed of money constraints. USCIS does not give one hoot about our finances.
