So my husband was approved for his removal of conditions, we have received every notice the USCIS ever sent, all of a sudden they say they mailed the green card and we never received that. So now we had to apply for a replacement, how long does that take,  cause we need to travel out the country in August.

Unless you are talking August 2022, your husband isn't getting the replacement card for that travel. After he files for i90, he can make an infopass appointment with i90 receipt and passport and get the i551 stamp. That will serve like a GC for one year and so can travel.

Your husband calls 800-375-5283 Monday to Friday, 8am to 8pm Eastern.

 

They may tell you that you'll get a call back from Tier 2 within 14 business days. The call back would be from 202-838-2200.

Looking at your timeline, the 2 year green card expired August 2020.  You should have received an extension letter that extends the card through February 2022.  
 

So worst case you can travel in August  2021 on that.  Might get a bit of a tongue lashing from CBP on entry, but you can mitigate that by filing I-90 now to replace the green card that was lost in the mail, and even better getting an I-551 stamp.  But it can be hit or miss these days on USCIS cooperating in terms of timely NOA1s and agreeing to provide I-551 stamps.

You know what I need to go check my husband's paper work. We called this morning to USCIS they gave us a number and said someone will call back in 72hrs to schedule an appointment for the I551 stamp. Praying all goes well.

Yes I saw that you have been promised a call back.  
 

I am letting you know that you have options if USCIS drops the ball. I’ve low expectations so I expect it will.  
 

I-751 receipts  grant 18 month extensions from  the date the gc expires.  Surely you knew that when you booked international travel with an expired gc

I wasn't sure this was an option after the I751 approval, but it does sound like it is OK.  Makes sense as the status hasn't expired, only the proof of status, and the expired card and valid extension letter are valid proof.

 

I agree with your expectations of USCIS.

My expectations for USCIS are so low, that if they were for hire as a juggling act, what you would get is a dude with no arms.

 


CR1 / DCF (London): 2012 / 2013 (4.5 months from I-130 petition to visa in hand)

I-751 #1- May2015 [Denied]

 

Early May 2015 : I-751 Joint filing package sent fedex next day 09:00am from UK ($lots - thanks). 
Jan 2017: Notification that an interview has been scheduled at a local office. Bizarrely still no RFE... 
Jan 2017: 2hr wait, then interview terminated before it began, due to moving my ID to another state 2 wks prior. New interview 'in a few months...maybe.'   Informed them that divorce proceedings are underway, but not finalised at this time. 
March 2017: An Interview was scheduled - marked as no-show as they didn't actually send out a notification of interview. FML 
April  2017: Filed an official complaint with the ombudsman, and have requested Senator & Congressman assistance
August 2017: Interview - switched to a (finalised) divorce waiver. Told that decision will be made that afternoon, but no problems foreseen with my case. 
October 2017: Letter of Denial received - reason given as 'I-751 petition was not properly filed'. Discovered ex-spouse made false allegations to USCIS. No opportunity given to review & refute allegations  - contrary to USCIS policy.

 

I-751 #2 - Oct 2017 [Denied] 

 

October 2017: Within 72hrs of receiving denial notice, a new waiver I-751, divorce decree & $680 cheque, sent to Vermont via FedEx overnight 9am priority.  
Dec 2019: Filed FOIA request for full A# file
Feb 2020: FOIA request completed - entire A# file received as a .PDF; 197 pages fully redacted, and 80 partially redacted. Don't waste your time!
March 2021: I-751 #2 denied for lack of evidence. No RFE, no interview, and evidence in previous I-751 not reviewed - contrary to policy. Huge errors in adjudication.

 

 N-400 - Feb 2018 [Denied] 

February 2018: N-400 filed online.  $725 paid to the USCIS paperwork wastage fund

February  2019: Interview - cancelled after a four hour wait due to 'missing paperwork' on their end. Promised Expedited reschedule.

March 2021: Interview letter received, strangely dated after I-751 denial. No I-751 interview conducted. N-400 interview and test passed, given 'cannot make a decision at this time' paper due to the ongoing I-751 nightmare...

April 2021: N-400 denial received citing recent I-751 denial as basis for ineligibility, even though it should have been a combo interview 🤯

I AM JACK'S COMPLETE LACK OF SURPRISE

 

Service Motion - March 2021 [Pending & COMPLETELY IGNORED]

March 2021: Service Motion request sent overnight to field office director, requesting urgent review and re-opening, based on errors in adjudication - citing USCIS policy, AFM and memorandums as basis for errors.

 

I-290B - April 2021 [Withdrawn]

April 2021: I-290B motion to re-open filed ($675) including brief and additional evidence

 

I-751 #3 - June 2021 [Pending]

June 2021: I-751 #3 & another $680 cheque sent to USCIS....  IT'S GROUNDHOG DAY
