I-751 December 2018 Filers

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Didn't see a thread on this yet, so I'm opening it up! Our 90-day window opened on Thursday, November 29, and we just sent our package in via FedEx today (December 3). Decided not to do the rush service and it will arrive on Thursday. Another step in progress! We will probably apply for citizenship right when the window opens up in the hopes that they will be adjudicated together. In case anyone was wondering, here is what we included with our package. It included 290 pages of evidence, plus the I-751, personal check, and copy of my husband's GC. We two-hole punched the top, organized with Avery exhibit tab dividers, and used ACCO fasteners to stick it all together. Good luck, everyone!
