Where is the green card?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this is the right place to post this but....my husband has been in the US since December 25, 2014 and he never received his green card. I paid the $165 fee on December 23, 2014 before he even left Haiti. I have called USCIS several times and have been given the same answer..."Wait a few more weeks." Has anyone else experienced something similar? How long did it take you or your spouse to receive the physical green card? What should I do? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Kay

It can take up to 3 months or so, but yours does seem to be taking a while.

Don't panic, his visa acts as a GC for 1 year. Do you have case number to check in ELIS? That'll show you the progress. http://www.uscis.gov/uscis-elis

ELIS needs to say "card produced" before the card is ACTUALLY produced and sent to you.

I think 2014 was a typo since they say they entered in Dec.
