Exact date to send in RoC

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all, my 90 days starts on 05/08/2012 (GC expires on the 8/6/2012), is it ok to send the paperwork over night on the 7th, or does it have to be post marked on the 8th?

Thanks in advance,

Your form needs to be dated on or after the 8th, and they need to receive your packet after the papers are dated. I would probably mail it on the 9th or 10th.

Two or three days difference in when you send it will make no difference at all in how long it takes to process. Two people who send theirs the same day could see a variance in processing times of up to 4-5 weeks. So you don't need to be in too much of a hurry to send it, although I do understand the feeling! :)

Your application cannot be ACCEPTED by the USCIS prior to 5/8/2012.

I dont think it matters when you date it on the form.

I sent out mine today, the post office stated a delivery date of 5/5/2012, which is a Saturday. I doubt anyone will accept it over the weekend.

Can't believe so many people are hung up on the 90 day thing like it has to be mailed on a certain exact date.

Don't waste your money on overnight service either. USPS priority mail with delivery confirmation (not certified) is all you need.

Getting hung up on the 90 day thing is silly. With your NOA1 (receipt) you get a one year extension to your green card. You need to file your I-751 BEFORE the expiration of your green card and NOT before 90 days prior to the expiration. I think we sent ours about 60 days prior. It makes no difference. You get the extenion and life goes on as normal. It is highly unlikely your new green card will come before the old one expires, but it does not matter.

We sent ours and about 6 weeks later we did the biometrics and 5 months or so later the new ones arrived in the mail. That's it.
