Conditional residency, 18-month extensión, what about the stepdaughter (dependent?)

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. Quick question here. Received an 18-month extension letter, extending the conditional residency of husband (we understand... processing times are longer now, etc etc) but absolutely nothing was mentioned in the letter about stepdaughter (dependent) who was also included in the application to lift the conditions. What can be done in this situation? Thanks for your feedback!

Had the same thing happen.  Eventually, a little while later, we received the extension letter for my stepdaughter.  If you don't receive within the next 30 days, or so, I would contact and get an update.  You could also try an infopass appointment, but I would give it a little time.

Ok. Thanks!! That’s something to consider then. The letter is dated 11/08/18. So perhaps give it another week and see what happens, maybe? 

Hi there, came across your post, hoping you're still around to provide an update. Did you ever receive the extension letter for your stepdaughter?

Hi Maria R323. Sorry for not replying.  The minor never got her extension letter. The father did.  However, the minor's father and stepmother were not able to go to the USCIS office to ask for a I-551 extension stamp in her passport, because they realized that her passport had just expired.  And for her to get another passport, the child's biological mother in Mexico needs to sign something, which she hasn't done yet, because she's being difficult.  But last I heard, the biological mother agreed to sign an affidavit so the girl can renew her passport at the Mexican Consular office.   I will update you with any information I receive. Thanks for your concern.

Hello again. Finally got biometrics appointment for both husband and stepdaughter for July 1.  Hopefully the removal of conditions process will be a piece of cake from here on in.  Fingers crossed. Thanks!!!

Hi there! Thanks for following up. My wife and 2 stepsons had their biometrics on April 29th, 2019.

 

My stepsons eventually received their 18-month extension letter (notice) after we filed a service request for non-receipt.

 

So we're just waiting now for the next move in the process... patience is key :)
