Restrictions lifted but not received green card and drivers license expired. What can I do?

6 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I am a permanent resident and had my conditions lifted in January 2019. Unfortunately, USPS mishandled my green card delivery and it was lost for a while before it was returned to sender. I've already submitted a request for the green card to be returned to me with USCIS but it has been almost three months and I've no idea when it will arrive.


My NJ drivers license expired this week and I provided the I797 notice of action letter that states my restrictions are lifted and I'm a lawful permanent resident, along with various other bits of ID. They said they couldn't renew again unless they see the new green card, which i don't have. Is there anything else I can provide? I have no idea when the green card will arrive and need to be able to drive. We have an eight-month old daughter who has some minor health issues and has to regularly visit a dermatologist. Is there anything I could do or get at an infopass appointment?

May be get an i-551 stamp on your passport thru infopass appointment and then present that for DL renewal.

Sorry to hear that you are going thru this OP.


Make sure to ask for a Supervisor when you call USCIS so that the Tier 1 agent doesn't jerk you around.

Thanks everyone. I just got off the phone with USCIS and the agent I spoke to said they will schedule an infopass appointment for me. I don't think she quite understood why I needed an infopass appointment but she was happy to arrange it. She requested the local field office contact me to schedule it and I should get a cal in the next 48-72 hours.
