Hello Everybody,

I sent off my I751 package last week. Does anybody know how long it takes to get your biometrics appointment at you local service center? AND..............how long is it taking getting the green card renewed through the California Service Center? I looked at processing times on the USCIS website and it saying 6 months!!!!! AND THEN ON THE APPLICATION INSTRUCTIONS IT WANTS YOU TO FILE WITHIN 90 DAYS BEFORE YOUR GREEN CARD EXPIRES!!! Can anyone enlighten me on this?

Thanks a bunch

Michelle

You should receive the biometrics appointment letter about a month after the NOA. Yes, California is taking approximatley 6 months to approve I-751s. You can check the CSC status list in this forum for exact dates for those who have also applied and received their cards. (Just be glad you didn't have to file to VSC and its average 11 month wait!).

Don't worry if your green card expires before the 10 year card is approved. You will receive an NOA receipt letter that will extend the validity of your green card for one year. You carry the letter and the green card together.

I guess they thought it would only take 90 days to process the things when the legislation was enacted and they have never gone back to fix it.

Good luck.

Thanks Kathryn, I was getting a little worried about what I would do if my green card expired and I couldn't travel. So they will send me a letter extending it till my application has been approved?

1,5 month after I applied I had the biometrics appointment,

I have been waiting for 4,5 months since I applied, no news and no touches yet.

Some get their cards in 3 months.

I think the people working for immigration put that '6 months' as a way to prevent you from asking questions about your case. They will say you are still in the processing time limits.

Yes but you can not tell me it is easy to carry a folder along with your expired card.

I haven't received my green card yet but it should be here soon. It took me about 3 months from when I mailed it in until I got the approval letter. If you read in my signature below you will see the time line.

FYI, I went through CSC for my AOS and for my removal of conditions. I was one of the lucky ones because I didn't have to have an interview for either of them.

That was about what Claudeth's timeline was for lifting conditions.
