I-751 case transferred to National Benefits Center - Processing Time

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

My I-751 was received on October 11, 2017, and it was proceeding smoothly. Then, on February 27, 2018, it was received by the National Benefits Center for final adjudication. However, according to the most recent processing report from the California Service Center, which was processing the case originally, the application should have been adjudicated by now.


I was wondering if there is anyone having a similar experience. My Permanent Resident Card is expired and the only proof of my legal status is the extension notification. My only concerned is because the extension will expire in a few months.

I think you’re still in normal processing range.

 

About 30 days before the extension expires, you have to call USCIS and make an infopass appointment for an i551 stamp.

Thanks.

I'm hoping this can be done before I need to move, otherwise moving could delay the process. I wonder if by making inquiries regarding my case I could find out what, if anything, can be done to speed up my case prior to my move.

You can of course call to inquire, but I don’t think there is any expedite route.

 

If you move, make sure you and the sponsor(s) file the appropriate change of address.  I also think it would be helpful in that case to make an infopass appointment to have someone physically change the address on the file to ensure it is completed.  The other safety net would be the USPS mail forward.  I moved after AoS but before RoC - they sent the reminder to the old address, but it was forwarded to me at my new address.

I made an inquiry yesterday. We'll see how that goes.

Hopefully, I can increase my chances and get it done before having to deal with changing addresses and all.
