How to request extension on Green Card while I751 is pending

My wife filed her I751 and got a 18-month extension letter for her Green Card. However, the case is still pending and the 18 months are coming up in January 2021.


Not being sure if her case will be completed by then, especially with delays due to COVID, wanted to be proactive and request another such letter providing an additional extension. For anyone who’s been through this process, would greatly appreciate if you could tell me how to go about it.

 

Not sure if it’ll help, but she has also filed the N400 in April for the meantime, but not expecting that’ll before January either.

Worst case closer to January the ability to make a appointment at a local service center may be available, and you could get a I-551 stamp in the passport buying you another 12 months.

There are no such additional letters.  Her status does not expire when the extension letter does.  Only the evidence of her status expires.  As @Loren Y stated, she can get a passport stamp if she needs to travel or provide evidence of her LPR status. 

 

FWIW, my wife apllied for ROC in March of 2019.  We have been waiting for an interview since May 2019.  Hopefully, our spouses will have a 10 year card by 2021.
