I'm not sure if im in the correct forum. If not, admin please move me to the correct topic.

 

My mother in-laws is here in  k3 family base visa ( arrived in April 2019). The USPS sent the GC but it was returned, exactly don't know why. We only found out about this after a visit to the local USICS office this month.

 

I've also called them the directly, long wait but finally got through. Explain the issue again. So they submited a case inquiry and told us to wait for 30 days for a respond. As far as i know it, there are no RFE or any hiccup, other not being delivered. 

 

Ok so here is the question, i heard that they now are hand delivering GC directly to your door. And that if you're not home,  i'm assuming  they (USPS) wont leave any indication of an attempt delivery. That you have to visit the local USICS, sign some paper, and wait for delivery again. Has anybody experience this?

 

sorry for the long text, and thank you for the advice,

Curious where you heard this?

 

USPS does deliver to your door, so to speak, however it's left in your mailbox---they don't knock on your door/no need to sign.

 

It's possible that USPS wasn't able to complete delivery the first time (ie. wrong address/incomplete address)

Verify that USPS has a valid change of address for delivery of letters from USCIS for you M-I-L. Many times folks will do a change of address with USCIS and not do it with USPS, thereby only completing one-half of the change of address process. Many of the letters from USCIS have the printed notation "DO NOT FORWARD," so if USPS has an old address  on record for the person's mail, they will follow USCIS's directions and return the letter to USCIS. Many folks miss these instructions on the USCIS Change of Address link:

Quote

Change of Address Information

We strongly encourage you to update your address with USCIS to ensure you receive all correspondence and benefits from us in a timely manner and avoid possible delays related to your case.

Changing your address with the U.S. Postal Service will not change your address with USCIS. Please update your information with both USCIS and USPS.

REF: https://www.uscis.gov/addresschange

 

 

HTH,

Good luck on your immigration journey.

Do you know if either of them fit the below two scenarios for the first roll-out?  Seems from reading that they are mainly focusing on the below two instances before expanding to others.

 

1) The first phase will affect documents that need to be re-mailed because they have been returned as non-deliverable. 

2) Applicants who have changed mailing addresses during the course of the application process are more likely to have their secure documents sent with the new delivery method

No, they did not fall into either of these two categories.

This states that if non-deliverable the first time, this would be the procedure.

So yes, this should now be the situation for your MIL because the first time it was non-deliverable.

Normally it comes by USPS Priority Mail.

They deliver the green card in your mailbox, but it is a track and trace envelope so you should be able to follow it. Once the status goes to "card was picked up by the postal service" there will be a track and trace number in your case to follow the envelope.
