"New Card Being Produced" - Filed I-751 October 2018 (merged)

7 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

I got an email this morning about my case update saying the a "New Card was being Produced". The last action that was done was processing my eRequest (biometrics inquiry) on March 6, 2019. No action that my case was approved. Questions are as follows:

 

  1. Is this possible considering that I filed Oct. 2018? Or a glitch or an error? They received it Oct. 19 to be exact. 
  2. My husband and I just filed for divorce last Friday, Mar. 8, 2019. I was going to wait for the final decree before I switch to a divorce waiver (we filed my I-751 jointly). Do you think this will affect me when I apply for citizenship assuming that I really got approved this fast.

 

What are your thoughts? TIA

The online case system is not always accurate. So until you get your actual card or an approval notice you wont know for sure its correct...

 

751 cases typically take longer then 6 months but it is not unheard of for it to get approved this quickly. Usually its thought to be someone taking cases out of order for training purposes or to mess with the processing times so they get better numbers. It doesnt really matter why your case was done so quickly though.

 

Also as long as you are not officially divorced- meaning final decree issued then it is perfectly fine for them to approve your joint 751 even if divorce papers were filed. Again you can not be approved on a joint 751 if you were legally divorced at the time of approval. You are fine. Congrats on the approval so quickly it seems!

Hi @username_taken

 

So I just got my approval notice today in the mail and the date of my approval was 3/14/19 and also today I just got my divorce decree and the date it was filed at the clerk’s office was 3/13/19. Now this seem to complicate things. What are your thoughts? My card has been mailed today.

Mods, if you can please merge this onto my other post (New Card Being Produced" - Filed I-751 October 2018) please do.

 

I filed my I-751 jointly with my ex husband on Oct. 2018. Got an update on 3/14/19 that my new card is being produced, day after that I got an update my case was approved and yesterday got an update that they mailed my card. 3/18/19 the approval letter came in the mail with the date of the approval as 3/14/18. Now my ex and I filed for divorce on 3/8/19. And yesterday I got the final decree in my mailbox and it was filed in the clerk's office on 3/13/19 (divorce effective date). Now this seem to complicate my situation because I was planning on switching to a divorce waiver after I get the final decree. My estimate was we will get it 4 weeks after we filed but it only took a week. Also I did not anticipate getting approved from my I-751 within 5 months. I need some advise on what to do. Should I file for another I-751 with divorce waiver? Should I write a letter to uscis stating what had happened? Should I just wait til I file for N400 and explain things when I get to that stage? Any advise is welcome. TIA.

I think that you should try for an InfoPass appointment, taking all your documentation with you.

If not that, then call USCIS and ask to be escalated to Tier 2 or whichever.

 

The overlapping dates of the various approvals are not your fault.

Your non-waiver green card might have been approved well before you filed for divorce.

Only USCIS can answer for sure about what to do, but I don't perceive an emergency or any intention to deceive.


06-04-2007 = TSC stamps postal return-receipt for I-129f.

06-11-2007 = NOA1 date (unknown to me).

07-20-2007 = Phoned Immigration Officer; got WAC#; where's NOA1?

09-25-2007 = Touch (first-ever).

09-28-2007 = NOA1, 23 days after their 45-day promise to send it (grrrr).

10-20 & 11-14-2007 = Phoned ImmOffs; "still pending."

12-11-2007 = 180 days; file is "between workstations, may be early Jan."; touches 12/11 & 12/12.

12-18-2007 = Call; file is with Division 9 ofcr. (bckgrnd check); e-prompt to shake it; touch.

12-19-2007 = NOA2 by e-mail & web, dated 12-18-07 (187 days; 201 per VJ); in mail 12/24/07.

01-09-2008 = File from USCIS to NVC, 1-4-08; NVC creates file, 1/15/08; to consulate 1/16/08.

01-23-2008 = Consulate gets file; outdated Packet 4 mailed to fiancee 1/27/08; rec'd 3/3/08.

04-29-2008 = Fiancee's 4-min. consular interview, 8:30 a.m.; much evidence brought but not allowed to be presented (consul: "More proof! Second interview! Bring your fiance!").

05-05-2008 = Infuriating $12 call to non-English-speaking consulate appointment-setter.

05-06-2008 = Better $12 call to English-speaker; "joint" interview date 6/30/08 (my selection).

06-30-2008 = Stokes Interrogations w/Ecuadorian (not USC); "wait 2 weeks; we'll mail her."

07-2008 = Daily calls to DOS: "currently processing"; 8/05 = Phoned consulate, got Section Chief; wrote him.

08-07-08 = E-mail from consulate, promising to issue visa "as soon as we get her passport" (on 8/12, per DHL).

08-27-08 = Phoned consulate (they "couldn't find" our file); visa DHL'd 8/28; in hand 9/1; through POE on 10/9 with NO hassles(!).
