Hello VJ Users, 

 

I'm soon to file my I-751 package and as per usual I peruse this forum try to skim through all the helpful tips and important informations that will be useful for my filing process.

 

I have few questions and I hope someone here can enlighten me: 

 

1. I follow USCIS' Instagram account, just because. The last few weeks their instagram story has been mentioning about filing form online (see photo attached for example), has there been any major change in the filing process recently? Are we still doing paper application? I hope that will be the case, as modern and tech friendly as I am, I feel somewhat hesitant to do the whole process online.

2. I read that some people receive a notice from USCIS, a reminder to file their I-751 within the 90 days prior to their 2nd year Green Card anniversary. Does this happen to everyone? If so when can I expect to receive this notice? My 2nd anniversary will be on 27 December 2019. 

 

3. I shouldn't wait for the notice before sending my I-751 application. Yes? My 90 days period will begin 28 September I plan to mail my documents with USPS on 27 September late afternoon. Thoughts? 

 

3. The last government shutdown (Dec 22, 2018 – Jan 25, 2019), does this incident has any effect / somewhat affect they processing time of immigration application? 

 

4. I've been very hesitant to follow the news, but I can't help noticing headlines about new immigration policy / changes in immigration law / worsening sentiment toward LGBT+ folks. WIth all that are happening in the government, as an LGBT immigrant,  should be worry about my application? 

 

I hope someone will be able to answer some (or all) of my questions. As always, THANK YOU VERY MUCH. 

 

Best, 

J/G

1.  I-751s can not be filed online.......You must mail the package....

2.  Some people receive reminders....Other do not......I don't know why.

3.  I advise you to mail the I-751 package a few days after the window opens.....via USPS Priority Mail.  If the package arrives even 1 day early, it will be rejected.....has happened more times than you might think.

3.  No effect

4.  There is no reason to worry.....The news media is full of fake news.......  The new public charge rules do not affect Removal of Conditions.

2. My wife didn't get any notice from USCIS. 

 

3. Yes, don't wait for the notice (since you might not get one). I'd just mail it on September 28th to ensure you don't get rejected for sending it in too early. 

 

3. Nope. USCIS is funded via fees and not via $ appropriated ("given') by Congress, so USCIS is not shut down like a lot of other agencies. 

 

4. The changes haven't impacted the removal of conditions process.
