Well, 9 days . We got a NOA I 797 that residence status is extended a year, And an ASC appointment NOA is coming , Biometrics, ect. Standard reply I think. I'm surprised it was nine days though. Considering it took me two weeks to prepare that package of Red tape paper for them to justify their jobs..

I sent it on the Sept, 1, 2016, It arrived on the 6th , We got a I-797 on a Sat , Sept 10. I'm not sure if that's a speed record or not..

Have no fear, USCIS will likely not break any speed records anymore during your ROC process. They throw the 1-year extension letter at everyone to placate them, then lull them into a coma with the biometrics appointment. At least that is what we and a lot of similarly-situated folks did. Then with a couple of months still valid on the extension letter, the customers have to rattle somebody's chain at the Service Center (SC). The minions at the SC have to scurry over to their "Raiders of the Lost Ark"-type warehouse, find your file, look long and real hard at some way to find that you didn't send in enough "marriage bonafides" evidence, and award you with an RFE. You throw all kinds of paper (hopefully including some TP) back at them, sweating nickels that you have enough evidence. Hopefully then you will realize that they have been playing a cruel joke on you and your family's emotions for a couple of years now. You tire of their shenanigans, and tell them approve the petition, interview us, or deny the petition, and we will see you in immigration court. (I was preparing the rough draft in Word.)

They are a paper tiger, they realize that the ten pounds of paper "marital bonafides" evidence was more enough to satisfy their inane bureaucratic metric of what an American family should look like (window-dressing), including maybe 1.3 dogs, and 2.6 kids...lol...

I am being cynical because I hope that as a fellow GUZ flyer, we have been pulled though enough knot holes, and don't need to be subjected to more baloney from USCIS. Some other veteran forum members have said that this can is usually pretty straightforward, and can be a walk in the park I hope that you experience a nice park and smooth experience. One thing I can tell you is that when my wife and stepson were finally approved, it is certainly a big sigh of relief, and a time for celebrating.

YMMV,

Good luck on your immigration journey.

hi,
I have sent my i-751 package on last Tuesday through UPS priority mail, how long it take to receive by Vermont Center?

Well, the USPS can be fast, or it can be slow, no telling which one your will encounter.

Did you not get a tracking number on your receipt, so that can go online and check delivery status? :idea:

Good luck on your immigration journey.

I had trouble at every step, Due to my inept wife. So I don't expect much better this round. But reality is at this point in the game they really cant do diddley. Its real difficult to get refused at this point if your marriage and paperwork is in order.

There is plenty of grief that USCIS can still inflict on a couple at this stage of the process. Like Yogi Berra said, "It ain't over, 'til it's over!" :yes:

Good luck on your immigration journey.

Biometrics today, it only took them 5 times to get one hand. So they're getting worse. Probably doing it because they want more tax revenue to sit around.

USCIS is entirely funded by the fees they collect from us. So more like they are sitting around hoping for more fee increases.


ROC from CR-1 visa (Green Card expiration date was Nov 24th 2016)

 

Link to the evidence I submitted. Be sure to send evidence spanning your entire marriage (especially for K-1) or as far back as you can. Just one or two bank statements will not cut it. I primarily focused on the two years of living here since I came in on a CR-1. If you don't have the fundamentals (i.e. joint accounts/policies), you can explain why in the covering letter. E.g. "While we do not have joint utilities, we both contribute to them from our joint bank account".
