USCIS Service Center - Not Local Office

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Called the 800 number to ask this.  Absolute waste of time.  Hoping to get some opinions here.


My wife's I-797 receipt document that extends her Green Card for a year is expiring on November 8th.  That is also the expiration date of her driver's license.  We have not received the 18 month extension letters than some are receiving and the call to the 800 number did confirm that an extension had not been mailed.


I have been checking daily for 3 weeks and there is never an InfoPass available for the Atlanta Field Office...which is the office for our address.  I was able to locate an InfoPass appointment at the Montgomery, AL office which is about a 2 hour drive away.


Will the Montgomery, AL office turn us away because they are not our local office?

Would it be better to do an emergency walk in in Atlanta given that we are less than 30 days until expiration?


Any suggestion appreciated.  Thank you in advance!

I went to a different office than my local office, but in my state. It shouldn't matter. But try this instead as my office (Newark, NJ) is also very busy that I wasnt getting any appointments. Then I woke up at 6am one day and saw so many appointments that were available. Try that before you drive to Montgomery.
