  1. Holy hell, Batman. I just did a deep dive into all of our millions of incoming USCIS mail. Turns out we in fact DID receive the 48 month extension. I feel stupid now.
  2. Thank you! I searching for a 48 month extension letter but could only find the initial 24 month one we received. I will submit a request via that link in case it was misplaced or we never received it for some reason. The status online still states “Case Was Updated To Show Fingerprints Were Taken” so I don’t have any reason to believe an RFE or denial was issued.
  3. Hi All, My wife’s residency expires this November. We filed for ROC in September of 2022 and only got an a 24 month extension (case has been stagnant since November of 2022). She is of course eligible for naturalization but is that the only practical way to speed up the process and maintain her legal residency? Naturalization isn’t a huge priority at the moment so I’d love to know what I can do in between now and November when her status expires. Thank you!
  4. Thank you. I just looked it up quickly and saw the same thing. The land is valued at around $7,000 USD and they are unlikely to sell it. I definitely anticipate reporting it if a sale is ever made however.
  5. Thank you for the quick reply. If she contributed the money as a gift to her family and she was left off the deed/transaction would that still be required?
  6. Hi all, My wife is a LPR (removal of conditions pending). She and her family are considering buying a plot of land in her home country and she would be contributing a few thousand dollars. This would be the largest share and the plan is to have it in her name. Since she is still a citizen of her home country does this require any legal action on our end in the US? The plan would be to transfer the few thousand to her or her mom’s account in her home country and they would use that account for the transaction. I assume this would need to be declared in a potential future interview/citizenship application. Thank you!
  7. Got the extension letter! Do you need to carry around the original copy or can you just use a copy? Just thinking about potential scenarios where something like that might pop up (speeding ticket or if someone of authority needs to see it randomly)?
  8. Okay, I think I'm ready to put a bow on this!

  9. Amazing! I know USCIS prefers ACCO fasteners, but it feels weird punching holes in the documents (you need to do that in order to use those, correct?).
  10. Wow! Thank you so much. I really really appreciate you sharing your process. You remind of why the community here is the best on the internet. Good luck to you!
  11. Alright, it’s game time again. Good luck to all who have already submitted or are in the process of compiling the massive mound of documents. How is everyone going to package the files? Mine will likely be over 200 pages and too big for a binder clip but I don’t want to just send a bunch of loose papers.
