I really don’t know what to, my Greencard expires in 53 days and I send all the paperwork , form I-751 to remove condition and they didn’t even  cash the check yet, I work as a Flight Attendant and I fly internationally every week, I am already having problems to go back to USA every time I leave the country. Any suggestions on what should I do ? I try to call USCIS but it seems impossible to talk to a person on the phone is always the machine, maybe I should schedule an appointment ? 

If someone is in a similar situation please let me know what did you do 

 

thank you

Yeah, when did you send in your documents? If it was more than a week ago, but less than a month I suspect you forgot to include something in your packet, and they're sending it back to you. That happened last year with my wife's petition. 

 

If it's been more than a month, I recommend setting up an infopass appointment since talking to them hasn't helped at all.

You shouldn't have any issues entering the US if your green card is still valid (and it looks like it is). 

 

It would help if you'd say when did you file your ROC. 

 

I'm sure you know approval takes a long time anywhere from 12 to 20 months.

Why are you having problems when your current 2yr card is still valid?


CR1 / DCF (London): 2012 / 2013 (4.5 months from I-130 petition to visa in hand)

I-751 #1- May2015 [Denied]

 

Early May 2015 : I-751 Joint filing package sent fedex next day 09:00am from UK ($lots - thanks). 
May 2015: Notice of receipt/1yr extension received, dated day of receipt. This was forwarded to me outside the US, and no issues re-entering multiple times.
June 2015: Biometrics completed - walk in / argument, stressing proof of imminent travel and multiple prior inconvenient appointments & reschedules.
May 2016: Vermont Service Centre updated to processing May 2015 cases, therefore my case is now classed as outside normal processing time
May 2016: Service request sent (whatever that is) after calling to find out why I am still waiting after 12 months. Unable to tell me anything.
May 2016: Letter received in response, stating processing is on hold due to 'pending security checks' with no other information. Not helpful.
May 2016: (7am) - Infopass appointment for I-551 Stamp in passport.  (8am) - Returned to USCIS office for another I-551 stamp after realizing the dumbass put the expiry stamp as 2015 not 2017. Two entire passport pages wasted. Cheers. 

Oct 2016: Infopass appointment (not at local office). USCIS have sent my file to an overseas office, in a country that neither myself or my spouse have ever resided in. It has sat there untouched for five months. Why? Who knows. Internal query requesting urgent clarification is sent by USCIS officer.  
Oct 2016: An identical 'pending security check'  letter received, addressing precisely none of my or the immigration officers legitimate queries. 
Nov 2016: Infopass appointment: My file is now back in the US and at my local office...no other updates or progress. 
Jan 2017: Notification that an interview has been scheduled at a local office. Bizarrely still no RFE... 
Jan 2017: 2hr wait, then interview terminated before it began, due to moving my ID to another state 2 wks prior. New interview 'in a few months...maybe.'       Informed them that divorce proceedings are underway, but not finalised at this time. 
March 2017: An Interview was scheduled - marked as no-show as they didn't actually send out a notification of interview. FML 
April  2017: Filed an official complaint with the ombudsman, and have requested Senator & Congressman assistance - enough is enough. 
May 2017: Yet another infopass. No updates, interview of further progress. Still no response from Congressperson, Senator, or Ombudsman received. 
June 2017: 68 days after contacting them, the Ombudsman finally contacted USCIS. 'It may take up to 60 days to receive a response'.   
July 2017:  A follow up enquiry sent by Ombudsman to USCIS after receiving no response or action after 45 days. I am Jack's complete lack of surprise. 
August 2017: 60 days has come and gone with no response from USCIS. Contacted the Ombudsman who will contact them AGAIN. 
August 2017: Email from Ombudsman - USCIS have scheduled an interview at the very end of August .  
August 2017: Interview - switched to a (finalised) divorce waiver. Told that decision will be made that afternoon, but no problems foreseen with my case. 
September 2017: Now 4 weeks since interview, my file has not moved from the officers desk, and no decision is showing when I call and speak to a Tier 2.  
September 2017: Request filed for Senator assistance (a different senator - maybe I will get a reply & assistance from this one?). 
October 2017: 37 days since interview....and no decision.  W, and indeed, TF is going on???? 
October 2017: Letter of Denial received - reason given as 'I-751 petition was not properly filed'. Discovered ex-spouse made false allegations to USCIS

I-751 #2 - Oct 2017 [Pending] 

October 2017: Within 72hrs of receiving denial notice, a new waiver I-751, divorce decree & $680 cheque, sent to Vermont via FedEx overnight 9am priority.  

October 2017: I-797C Receipt/extension letter received, dated day of receipt at VSC 

October 2017: Another I-551 stamp obtained at infopass appointment, as the extension letter is useless with a 2yr card that expired 2.5yrs ago! 

November 2017: Biometrics completed (early walk-in) 

N-400 Feb 2018 [Pending] 

February 2018: N-400 filed online.  $725 paid to the USCIS paperwork wastage fund

February 2018: Biometrics completed (walk-in)

Mid - February  2019: N-400 Interview - unable to conduct, as pending I-751 was still in Vermont, despite case transfer notice having been received.

April 2019: Filed request for Senator assistance.

I send 10 days ago, first time I send it was 98 days before expiring so they send back saying I send too early, so I send again after the 90 days. I’m gonna try to set up this info pass. Thank you

 Does your airline have domestic routes? Can you ask to just fly in the USA until this gets resolved?

I’m gonna try to talk to them or even try a company leave if possible

It is still valid but the kyoks that crew members go to say that is going to expire so I can use them anymore so I have to go true customs and that is causing delays on the flights I work for and the company doesn’t like when delays happen 

 

thank you

Even when you get your NOA1, you're going to have to go through the "slow line" and not the kiosks. Unfortunately you're not going to be able to use the kiosks until you get your 10-year card, which you won't get for at least a year. Maybe look into global entry?

Most airlines will put you on a domestic/restricted schedule until you receive your extension letter (I know some airlines do not fly domestic, if that is your case, then you might have to take a leave until you receive the letter); it is done by crew scheduling, or yourself while you put your bid in - check in with your base manager. It is done not only for ROC, but for US citizens crew members losing /renewing their passport.   Good luck.

Global Entry will not be approved if her GC expires. We applied for GE during ROC, they denied it because they wanted the 10 yr card. If she does the application quick enough while her current GC is valid she might get approved but once her card expires the kiosks will not accept her again because GE is not a card you scan at the kiosk, you still need to scan your passport/valid GC

I’m also a crew member traveling with the extension letter. I find it easier now than before because we can just skip the kiosk and go straight to the counter. We don’t wait in normal line like the peasants but the dedicated crew line. No problem with the officers either, it’s always a quick process and I even got ahead of other crew members using global entry.

They always ask me so many questions, and I am in my uniform, usually takes extra 40min for me even if I just go straight to the officer, I need to figure it out a way to get my passport stamped on USCIS
