What To Answer On Job?

Thanks In Advance.

hi

you can file up to 90 before the card expires, that doesn't mean it's 3 months, since some months have 31 days, others 30

you will receive the first noa or notice of action, which also serves as an extension of you GC for a year. with that you can work, travel and live here

the card will expire because the process takes over 6 months, that's why you get the extension letter for a year

Your notice of action after sending in the ROC paperwork includes a provision extending your Permanent Resident status for another year. You can legally work, and travel internationally with the expired green card alongwith the extension letter.

Your 90 day application window will open on November 1, 2016. You can apply after that date. But sooner the better.

Your NOA letter will extend your visa for 1 year which will enable you to travel out of the country, work, get driving license etc.

Yes kins8487. Make sure they receive it after the window opens and not before. When you receive the extension letter after submitting your ROC, take the letter to the DMV and they will extend your drivers license for a year.

You can send your package no more than 90 days before your current Green Card expires. If you send it too early and it arrives more than 90 days before, they'll send it back.


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".

 

September 26th 2016: I-751 package sent to CSC

September 28th 2016: Package delivered

February 26th 2018: I-751 case number (aka the NOA1 receipt number) becomes trackable
March 14th 2018: Submitted service request due to being outside of processing time.

March 15th 2018: ROC approved. 535 days (1 year, 5 months and 17 days)

March 29th 2018: Card being produced

April 4th 2018: Card mailed out

April 6th 2018: Card in hand. Has incorrect "resident since" date. Submitted service request on I-751 case (typographical error on permanent resident card) and an I-90 online.

April 2018 - August 7th 2018: Tons of service requests, emails and now senator involvement to get my corrected green card back because what the heck, USCIS. Also some time in May I sent a letter to Potomac telling them I want to withdraw my I-90 since CSC were handling it.

August 8th 2018: Card in production thanks to the direct involvement of Senator Sherrod Brown's team

August 13th 2018: Card mailed

August 15th 2018: Card in hand with correct date. :joy:

October 31st 2018: Potomac sends out a notice stating they have closed out my I-90 per my request. Yay for no duplicate card drama.

Maybe yes . . . maybe no.

Depends entirely on what state you live in; and even what particular DMV office you visit.

That might be too soon. I sent mine from Ohio to California and it only took two days. I didn't overnight it.

Okay Then Will Ship It On 28th October As Its Friday So It Will Delivered On November 1st.

Nov 1 is not a deadline for applying. That is just the beginning of the 90 day window for you. I would suggest that you mail the package on Monday Oct 31st and no sooner.
