Quick question about ROC NOA1/Extension letter

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I'm still a year away from filing for ROC but I have this question.

Does the ROC NOA1/Extension letter expires 1 year from the day the letter itself is dated or 1 year from the day the 2-year Conditional Green Card expires?

Thanks a lot for answering!

It's a green card extension letter so it extend your green card expiration date and not the random date your application was mailed. Hope this helps :)

Once again, people are giving either logical answers or answers that relate to their own experience or both.

But the people you may encounter are not always logical.

On this forum, members have reported going to DMV (for instance) and having them look at the letter and say, OK we will extend your license one year from the date shown on this extension letter.

And actually, the letter can be interpreted both ways without too much twisting of logic.

True! I was just curious...

My State ID (I don't drive) expires in 2022 because I had to renew it recently. Fortunately I won't have to deal with DMV during the ROC process. :)

I know this thread is a few months old but I have a question please if anyone can chime in? We will mail priority the I-751 to CSC on Feb. 15. How soon after that can we expect to receive the one year extension letter? I called the USCIS but I am not getting an anwer on it, at least the first two calls. We need to travel on March 13, I did not realize I was cutting it so close when I booked the travel. Thanks !

According to the timelines and stats on  VJ you should expect them about 5 business days after for CSC and 6 days after for VSC. This looks to be correct as we did get our NOA and extension 6 days after on the dot.

I second this. I have read official USCIS guidelines/memos and it's not actually clear. The NoA isn't clear either. My local DMV interpreted it as one year from the notice date and not the green card expiration date, even after I escalated it. I called a Tier 1 USCIS representative and was told it was one year from the notice date as well. That doesn't mean other people have had the same outcome as we have but expect either possibility.
