Green card will expire before initial NOA.

I mailed my I-751 and it was received on 06/17. My green card will expire on 07/03.

My cheques have not been cashed and I have not received any notices.

If I don't receive my NOA before it expires what should I do?

Will someone point me towards an appropriate contact # so I can check up on my application?

The Guide has no information on what to do in such a situation.

Should I not work when my card expires?

Your status remains as a LPR, you will need the receipt letter to be able to travel and return to the USA, and also to prove you are work authorized.

Wait a few weeks for the extension letter and then if you have evidence that USCIS received your application, you did use a tracable method like USPS Priority Mail, schedule an info pass appointment and see what they say about status, they may issue an I-551 stamp if you have not received the letter.


OUR TIME LINE Please do a timeline it helps us all, thanks.

Is now a US Citizen immigration completed Jan 12, 2012.

Hi BexandDavid,

You should have applied at leat 50-60 days before your GC was gonna expire if you were gonna file late to avoid such situation. Always be safe than sorry when dealing with USCIS.

YuAndDan has given you great advice. make an infopass ASAP which will be couple of weeks down the road and ask the officer there what's going with your case.

The number you asking for is called "mis-information" line as doesn't really help and they just read off the script or from the computer screen.

So please make an infopass

Normally you should get NOA in a week to 2 week or atleast a month. If you don't get NOA in 30-45 days since you applied you make an infopass appointment for your nearest USCIS field office.

https://infopass.uscis.gov/info_en.php

Will tell you the field based on your location.

On the 1st page choose "You need Service on a case that has already been filed " and then on the next page choose "If it has been over 45 days since you contacted NCSC and have not received a response to your inquiry. You must bring the Service Request ID Number related to your inquiry to the appointment."

Go to Info pass appointment before appointment time (10-30 mins) and ask the IO (Immigration Officer) that you applied for I-751 and didn't get NOA and would like I-551 stamp on your passport.

Since you didn't get the NOA they will easily give you a stamp on your passport which will extend your work and stay for 1 year (which is 1 year added to the date your GC expires e.g GC expires 05-01-009 will be extended to 05-01-10)

Hope it helps.

Good Luck.

So I got an envelope from USCIS today. I got all excited thinking 'yes! I don't have to worry about the expiry date.'

What was it?......my application!!!

They sent it back because of one stupid little mistake. Now I'm kicking myself hard for overlooking something so important.

But I've scheduled an infopass apt. for Monday so hopefully I can get my status cleared up.

But wow!! Was I ever DUMB!!

I'm all stressed out...and I did it to myself.

May we ask what the mistake was so others do not commit the same thing??


Why is it that the only one who can stop the crying is the one who started it in the first place?
