There is life at Vermont Service Center

For those of you who are also waiting for some sign that someone is home in Vermont, we finally received our I-797 today. Some observations:

We sent our I-751 on August 17th. The check was cashed on August 28th. The I-797 has a notice date of September 26th, but was postmarked October 5th.

It tells us to expect a follow up letter for a Biometrics appointment.

When I called the misinformation line a couple weeks ago, he gave me a receipt number which did not exist in the online USCIS tracking system. He gave me a receipt date of 18 August. I called again yesterday and talked to a different person who confirmed the reciept number and said there was nothing in the system that indicated an NOA had been sent yet, and that she would send VSC a reminder.

The NOA gives me a different receipt number which is trackable in the online system. It says "Your CRI89 CONDITIONAL RESIDENCE I-89 CARD RECEIVED AT SERVICE CENTER was received on September 26, 2006." The NOA does note at the bottom that I-751 form type will be listed as CRI89.

Great news Sherlock. I remember you from 2 years ago during the intial application process. Our timelines were very similar.

I last week, I made an appointment through Infopass since (as I knew it would happen), my husband has a job in the UK for a few months. He leaves on November 1 and his green card expires on October 29... Hopefully we'll receive the notification tomorrow (yeah right) and I can bring it with us. If not, we'll just go an ask for the stamp.
