I-751 mailed today

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

Today I mailed my I-751 packet. Do you all think I had enough info? I had joint tax transcripts filed married, a joint checking account for the last two years, She is on my medical insurance from work, and I have her on my 401k as my beneficiary. I also sent a lot of pictures the last two years from family events and trips, also included the boarding passes from a trip we took to florida last November. I also included letters addressed to our residence.

From looking at the timelines, it looks like it is taking about 7 months from the California Service Center, I was wondering if my wife could travel back to Peru before she gets her new 10 year green card? or should she wait?

thanks,

Chris

Unless otherwise, the California Service Center is usually faster at approving petitions compared to Vermont! How long is your wife intending to be away? It's best to travel after receiving her extension letter (that you should receive in the mail shortly) and probably after her biometrics are completed! you have been added to the January filers list here! Good luck.

Thanks for adding me to the January filers. She was planning to travel back to Peru in June probably for a month or two, was just hoping to get the card before then.

She may or may not have the card by then. But as long as she has her NOA1 which will show that her status has been extended for a year she can travel with that. As the previous poster mentioned, it would be good to make sure that her biometrics are complete before traveling. Also keep in mind that she may be called for an interview in which case she might need to alter her travel plans in order to attend.

Applied for ROC early December 2014 and got my NOA by the 8th of December 2014. Up until now, i still have not recieved my Biometric letter. Currently going through a bitter divorce and my ex wife to be is hell bent on sending me back to my country. She hopes that would happen, so she can have full and un-interrupted custody of our 10 month old daughter. She has written to USCIS and hired expert witnesses in our divorce case to testify about my immigration status and whether or not my marriage might have been a fraud.

Its quite unfortunate that my USC spouse never realised her marriage was fraudulent until she decided to kick me out of our home in May 2014 with a restraining order. Even thought he order was dismissed, she still refused to let me back to the house. After this incidence, a series of false accusations followed, which has led me to where i am now in my life, with no full time job, huge legal bills and alienation from my daughter.

I wish some one could explain possible reasons why i still dont have a biometric letter. I would also like to know if there are ways to contact USCIS about this matter

Thank You.

CSC currently processing early September for ROC, so it actually taking only about 5 months, not 7. But you never know, processing times tend to speed up and slow down in the moments you least expect that. You can never rely on certain time for NOA2.
