Need reassurance

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

We'll be filing paperwork this summer to remove restrictions on my wife's greencard. Need some reassurance about what they want to see. I've got the stuff that it asks for in the 751 instructions, but what else do I need? What do people recommend above and beyond the minimums? I guess I'm really looking for stories of people who were denied, and if so, why? What didn't they have or show? If denied, what happens then?

Also, several people have said they got a letter extending the greencard for a year. I interpret that to mean they don't send you a new card, you just have to carry the letter with you when you travel? Anyone have any problems getting back into the country from international travel with the card and letter?
