Extension letter received - 18 months extension from now or GC expiration date

Hi Everyone,

 

Apologies if this is a silly question: I received my extension letter for 18 months but it doesn't say what the new expiration date is.

 

I assumed this is my current expiration + 18 months, and not 18 months from the date of the letter, but I just wanted to make sure.

 

Thank you!

hi. it is 18 months from your actual conditional green card expiration date, means if you already expired in your 12 months extension you only have 6 months more,  that what happen to me because I renew my driver's license when my 12 months extension was expired they only gave me 6 month of my driver's license, but I received my green card IR-1 a month after my 12 months extension was expired, good luck.

Perfect thank you! Assumed as much but wanted to be sure.

Good to know about that in case I get another extension on top! Thank you
