Hello,

 

I am hoping that someone can help me. I applied for my green card renewal in May 2019, and I received I-797 (green card extension letter) which would be active for 18 months. 
 

After I went for my finger print last year, I have not received any more update from USCIS. I have called and they keep saying they will contact their back office. My extension letter is about to expire in September and I don’t know what to do.

Status does not expire when the extension letter does.  Only the evidence of status expires.  If you need to travel or if you have a valid need for evidence of status, you can call USCIS and schedule an appointment to get a 551 stamp in your passport.

My wife and I submitted her I-751 in late March 2019.  We have been waiting for an interview since May 2019.........

 y'all applied before me and I got my green card before yall. Im wondering how is that possible when USCIS says they process cases in order they have been received. I even got a RFE.    One thing that delayed my case was they had sent me a Notice of something saying they will re use my Adjustment of status fingerprint but 1 month later they change their mind and scheduled me for it. in my opinion if your situation is over a year wait somin went wrong and you need to talk to a tier 2 officers not customer services all they do is read what is in your case status portal.

Well first, I-751 can be processed at different Service Centers. Then inside each Service Center the Grocery store analogy can be used . . . Some checkout lines are faster than others.

According to the USCIS web site, we are still in normal processing time.

You don't need to do anything. You're still within normal processing time. As stated previously, if you need to travel or have urgent need of proof of residency, make an appointment with USCIS to get a stamp. I've been waiting since September 2018. It is what it is. Different offices have different case loads and what you are experiencing is normal. 


Cateogory: CR1

  • NOA1/Notice of receipt: Sept. 15, 2015
  • NOA2/I130 Approved: February 8, 2016 (NO RFE) :)
  • Process slowed down by us

  • Scan date: April 14/ May 7th (NVC said both I dont know why)
  • Case Complete: May 31, 2016 (No checklist) :dancing:

If you’ve been in the US up to 3 years and married to the same US citizen spouse that filed for you then you can go ahead and apply for your citizenship whether you have gotten your approval or not. 
Im waiting for my own i751 too and I called uscis on Friday and they told me that by November I can go ahead and apply for my citizenship whether I have gotten my removal of condition or not, as long as I’m still married to my husband.
