Hi all,

I have just finished an extremely busy school year and just realized that my husband and I only have 40 days left until his visa expires and we need to remove conditions!!

I will send it first thing Monday, and I know that we will (hopefully) get the one year extension, but will our tardiness affect this at all?

No, it should not affect it at all. As long as you file before the current GC expires you will be fine.

His VISA expired a long time ago. I assume you're now talking about his 2 year greencard.

You have to file for ROC anytime in the 90 days before the card expires. 40 days is fine. A couple of days would be risky if there was a problem with your filing because your card could expire while your packet was being returned to you and then you resending it.

You should be fine.
