Filing I-751 to Remove Conditional Status on Residency

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello,

We did DCF almost 2 years ago.

Recently we filed the I-751 to have Conditional Status removed from residency.

So far, we have gotten a notice from USCIS/Homeland Security saying the my husband's green card is extended for 1 year. When I called USCIS (turns out I knew more than the woman on the other end of the phone line :o ) I was told that processing time can take up to that whole year.

My question is this......as I understand it, my husband can apply for Citizenship within the 90 days prior to his being here 3 years. So do we have to wait for this petition to be approved befor applying for citizenship or can we go ahead with it even if we have not heard from the I-751 petition?

Has anyone else had probs waiting on their I-751 ??????

Thanks!

Don't waste your time calling the 800# for status of a I-751 application. They don't have access to that and you can't track it online. You just have to watch the I-751 processing time of the Service Center that's working on it and make an INFOPASS appointment if your filing date passes and you haven't heard anything.

Because I-751s are being adjudicated within the one year estimate now (most commonly), I don't see this question come up much, but it was very popular when we started out and I-751s took about 18 months to adjudicate.

Group experience shows that an unresolved I-751 is NO BAR to filing N-400 on schedule, so go ahead and file when ready. In fact, this was a common tactic to get the I-751 pulled up, because it must be adjudicated before the N-400, and it would often be done at the naturalization interview, right before naturalization was also approved. :)

Read the Natz guidelines carefully.. there is more to eligibility than just being a married PR for 3 years.
