Current Status: Card production ordered.

On July 21, 2009, we ordered production of your new card. Please allow 30 days for your card to be mailed to you. If we need something from you we will contact you. If you move before you receive the card, call customer service. You can also receive automatic e-mail updates as we process your case. Just follow the link below to register.

If you have questions or concerns about your application or the case status results listed above, or if you have not received a decision from USCIS within the current processing time listed*, please contact USCIS Customer Service at (800) 375-5283.

In October 2008, we filed the I-751 for my wife.

Then she had her biometrics 6 weeks later.

Then no updates or emails or "touches" or anything. I would read stuff on this forum and get worried.

Then in March 2009, we got a transfer notice from Vermont to California.

Then in April 2009, we got a RFE (request for evidence).

No updates, letters, or emails, so I contacted our congressman's office in June 2009, and I received a letter from an aide, but she was never in the office or available for me to speak with her.

Last week, I called the 1 800 375 5283 number, pausing after pressing 1, then 2, then 3. I spoke with a call center rep, and told her what was happening with my wife's case. She transferred me to an "officer" and this officer was, to say the least, less than friendly. She said some things to my wife and me, and I asked her if I needed to contact my congressman's office. (I did not tell her that I had already done so.) She became very friendly, very helpful, and kept saying, "nooo, noo sir, you don't need to contact the congressman's office, as everything is normal with your wife's case."

After that, I saw at the uscis.gov site that my wife's case had been updated or "touched" and today we got this email and update that a new card is being made.

My advice is for those filing to not get so worried or upset about all of this 751 stuff. My wife is traveling with her extension letter. No problems. We didn't have a lot of "assets" to co-mingle.

It's almost like some people here act like know-it-alls and like to fear-monger or something. Just calm down and don't worry. That's my advice. Please don't worry or get upset or make mountains out of mole-hills.

Kindest regards and good luck to all. Thanks for everyone's kind words and thoughts.

Congratulations. Very happy for you. Finally your long wait is over now little wait for the GC arrival begins just like me.

With USCIS

Might is Right

It was funny how the rep told you not to contact congressman, as indeed it would have put her in trouble as most of the USCIS calls are recorded and if the congressman staff had inquired and her record would have come up and she didn't give correct information or didn't help you. She could have lost her job.

Congressperson/Senator inquiry/help are like "Spanking on the back of USCIS". They often need to behave properly.

Congratulations on your approval.

I applaud your persistence in contacting your congressman and in encouraging others not to spend every living moment worrying about the process; however, please do not underestimate the power of showing financial co-mingling. You did receive a RFE after all. And I'd rather be a little nervous and go the extra mile to get it right rather than not pay attention to detail and make mistakes. Part of the purpose of this forum is for people to 1. get support and 2. seek advice from others who are further along in the process a.k.a. "know it alls". If it wasn't for our "know it alls" none of us would have any strong, solid advice to follow. And in my opinion and VJ experience (both as an asker and as an advisor), our "know it alls" often put people's fears to rest rather than act as fear mongers.

So ... congrats again and cheers to our resident know it alls! :thumbs:

Thanks so very much everyone for the kind words and thoughts. Well, I'm so surprised my wife received her permanent resident card today.

So yeah, I can just say in our case, the calling of the USCIS and getting a case officer on the line seemed to work for us.

From others experiences, I half expected us to be interviewed, or for my wife's green card to be lost in the mail, or have a misspelling, or something.

So, again, I just want to say thanks for everyone in the forum and please, if you're still in the process, please don't get discouraged. It's so easy to get upset and worried, and if an USCIS worker is rude to you, you don't have to take it. Just be polite and respectful, and ask for a supervisor or ask them if you need to contact your congressman or senator. It worked for us. Good luck everyone!

I don't know if the RFE was really because we didn't submit enough information at first, or because of the transfer from Vermont to California.

:)

Thanks to everyone. Hmmm...as to filling in and out the timeline, I may need some help with that. lol

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