Hello,

 

My husband has reached the two year mark on his conditional resident visa, and we sent in our paperwork (I-751). We never received a reminder of this, and did not send the paperwork in exactly 90 days before. We sent our paperwork in December 20th, which they sent back saying that there were problems with the packet. We fixed the problems and sent it back in. They received and accepted the packet, acknowledging this at the end of January, and sent us a letter stating that my husband was to attend an interview for his biometrics February 14th. We went to that interview and that was it. However, we never received a letter giving him the extension on his green card, which USCIS says was supposed to have arrive with the biometrics letter. His green card expires today and we are very confused as to what we need to do. We called USCIS two days ago and the person we spoke to said that we needed to make an appointment at a field office and request an "Aided Stamp". The nearest office was 6 hours away, so my husband drove there just for them to tell him that they would not give it to him and that he needed to just wait for a letter. Is this true? What should be done now? The person at the office said that he is not illegal because he started the process for the removal of conditions before his green card expired, but we are quite concerned. Any clarity on this would be helpful.

 

Thank you,

dhm2

No one would ever send you a reminder. You’re supposed to remember to file the I-751 on time.

 

The extension letter would be the letter that they sent you when the acknowleded the receipt of the filing at the end of January. There should be language in there states to extend the GC for 18 months or something like that.

USS_Voyager,

 

The letter we received has no indication of an extension. The only letter we have received was for him to go get his biometrics taken and it specifies that it does not provide any form of legal status or decision. At the place we went to get the biometrics taken, I asked what we were to do next, and they said "You wait for a letter to come in the mail."

Assuming you sent the fixed i751 package in January, check out this forum. Perhaps folks there are discussing the issue(s) you're facing. You're no longer under CR1, but now under Removal of Conditions. You may need to call USCIS and speak to a Tier 2 officer to request the 18-mo Extension Letter either be sent or re-sent. Failing that, make an Infopass to get the ADIT Stamp in the passport.

We called USCIS and they told us to make an Infopass appointment and request the ADIT Stamp, however, when my husband got there, they told him that he was not supposed to do that and when he called USCIS again, they said that it was true, he was not supposed to go to the Infopass appointment. So we don't know what else to do. There are way too many mixed signals from USCIS.
