Hi all!

We sent in our i-751 and packet to the California center via FedEx on September 12th. It was confirmed as delivered on the 17th. We haven't heard from USCIS yet, and my husband plans to travel abroad next month for Diwali. The check has not been deducted from our account. Is this in the normal time frame still? Any advice? Thank you!

I would not travel without the extension letter. 

 

If it's an emergency, maybe you can try getting a passport stamp at your local USCIS office.


1. I went through Diversity Lottery Green Card and Citizenship application processes 

2. My spouse went through K1 (I-129F)  and AOS (I-485) 

3. About to file ROC (I-751) for my spouse

They have slowed down a lot. It's taking one to two months currently to cash the check and mail out the receipt, so have your husband sit tight for now.


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".

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.

We mailed our i-751 to the California service center on Sept 8th, it was delivered Sept 10th. As of today, Oct 5th, they still have not cashed our cashiers check. It sounds like this is currently par for the course, unfortunately.

This is interesting topic. We mailed our I-751 to the Phoenix office on 9/17/18. We received the email USCIS Acceptance Confirmation email on 9/24/18. The check was cashed 9/24/18 and we still haven't received the NOA in the mail yet. Oct 8th is a holiday for the post office. I'm hoping to see the letter in my mailbox by October 10th. 

 

Has anyone else signed up for 'Informed Delivery' on the USPS.COM website? I was able to get it here where I live. Once you're signed up for it, you can login to the USPS website and see scanned copies of the envelopes that are being delivered in the mail.

Just an FYI, as of September 10th I believe, all applications should be sent to USCIS Lockbox in Phoenix which will then turn it over to California Service Center (only they know why they do this). I think this is why there is such a delay.  One of my friends sent in an I-751 back in July and they received their extension letter within a week of the check being cashed.

Thanks everyone, we're getting worried because he has international travel planned for Nov 4th. Any advice on going to a USCIS office to correct the issue or is a trip deferment in order?

you need to make an infopass apointment and talk to an officer. I am not sure you would get your extension in time for the trip.

If your current GC is valid for the entire trip, you should be good though. You can leave and come back.

We submitted ours on 9/5. Nothing yet. Just got off the phone with them 10 seconds ago and they said there was a big delay for August and September people in getting the data entered and notices sent out. That’s about wrapped up so it should be out soon. For reference, sent to Phoenix lockbox (California residents) on 9/5 and haven’t received anything at all yet.

 

The guy on the phone wouldn’t give me the receipt number as I’m the petitioner so I need my wife to call in (she’s abroad) and it’s likely that they can pull the receipt number to give her as it’s probably processed by now.
