Hi guy! 

 

I filed my document on October 20th 2018 and my green card expired 12/19/2018. 

 

I got 18 months extension letter last year also transfer notice letter last November. (California >> Nebraska)  

 

However, In the USCIS website when I check my status, it is still showing me same thing that first time it showed me which is they received my case.

 

In 3 months my extension letter will be expired. 

 

In this case, should I call USCIS to check my status and make appointment for infopass to get stamp or do you think I should wait little more? 

 

Thank you!!

If your GC expired December 2018 and you received an 18-month extension, your permanent resident status is extended from 18 months from the date of your GC expiration date, which would be June 2020, based on what you stated.  While service centers seem to be speeding up for later applicants, they are still taking around 12-20 months to approve cases.  So, I suggest wait a lot more.

 

Our case was filed December 2017 - a whole year prior to yours.  My husband's extension letter is good until September of 2019.  I am sure you have more time that you posted, unless you put the wrong year in your post.

Hi guy! I'm reposting this because I put my process date wrong. 

 

I filed my document on October 20th 2017 and my green card expired 12/29/2017. 

 

I got 18 months extension letter last year also transfer notice letter last November. (California >> Nebraska)  

 

However, In the USCIS website when I check my status, it is still showing me same thing that first time it showed me which is they received my case.

 

In 3 months my extension letter will be expired. 

 

In this case, should I call USCIS to check my status and make appointment for infopass to get stamp or do you think I should wait little more?

If your GC has expired December 29, 2017, then your permanent resident status is good until August 28, 2019.  You are still good for another 5 months and 3 weeks, so you still have time.  I wouldn't recommend trying to get a stamp until you have less than 2 months left because they may turn you away and getting an InfoPass can be difficult.  Since you were transferred, your case may get approved soon.  If I were you, I would give it three more months, then consider submitting a case inquiry if your case still isn't processed.  They need to allow time for any RFE lead time, so you are probably pretty close to getting worked on!
