  1. Hello fellow ROC filers, Just spent the whole day prepping our docs...ROC ready to go in the mail on April 1st! Thread is started for April 2019 ROC filers. Let the waiting begin!
  2. Let's do it. Working on my documents to send out mid Jan 2018. Happy ROC!!!
  3. Creating this topic thread for all the March 2020 I-751 Removal of Conditions Filers
  4. Hi everyone. Just wanted to start this thread for all of us filling for ROC in May 2019. Welcome to the group!!!
  5. Let's use this Google-Sheet to share our timelines processed in Nebraska Service Center (LIN-xxxxxxx): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1Buo_drIy4zaCFZUULdT_L9JrA6YZgrVtt7Cj6nUsvv0/edit?usp=sharing πŸ‘†πŸ‘†πŸ‘†
  6. Dear Visa Journey MIlitary/Veteran/military families community first of all thank you to those who served/are serving. So I am currently waiting on my Removal of conditions I am a June 2017 filer on the California Service Center so unfortunately judging by other folk's experiences I am looking at a looooong wait 14-18 Months The issue is that I am scheduled to ship to Marines Bootcamp this coming early August and if current trends continue I fully expect for my ROC application to still be pending by then. In light of that I am a little concerned about possible Requests for evidence sent in my absence and God forbid even an interview. I know it sounds ridiculous but they (I have seen it with many people) wait literally over a year to start reviewing your application and oftentimes they send you a RFE after over a year of backlog. Also, I know I-751 interviews are rare, but what would happen if they call me and my wife for an interview while I am in bootcamp, what can I do? Is not possible for me to request a leave of absence from training. Also with regard to RFE's I am the one who has always taken care of all the immigration paperwork. Any advice as to how to prepare everything for my spouse who is inexperienced on this processes, so she can successfully respond to an hypothetical RFE? By the way for those curious about it the Marines does take in recruits for enlistment with conditional I-55's 1 the only difference is that due to newly passed regulations their waiting period is way more extensive than regular (citizens) applicants. Thanks! Quote
  7. Hi Everyone! Well, we are back! Now its time to file for Removal of Conditions for my wife's Green Card. It expires on October 30. Just sent the Packet out to the AZ office since we are in CA. Should arrive by Monday Aug. 3.
  8. Hello, I am in the process of removing conditions on my conditional green card. I am currently a dual citizen (Poland and Canada). On the first page of form I-751 question 6 it asks: "country of citizenship or nationality (provide all that apply)". This is very confusing because, in the paperwork to obtain the conditional green card we never filled out Poland as a country of citizenship (our lawyer filled out all paperwork). Now I feel tempted to just list Canada as this is my country of birth and only have a valid passport from Poland. I don't want to confuse the situation by listing it, since the question does specify "list all that APPLY". Does this apply? Has anyone else run into a similar situation? Please help!
  9. I didn't see a August 2018 I-751 topic so I thought I'd start one. Preparing to send mine in less than a week! It might be quite a number of pages... Anyone else filing in August 2018 and is getting their packet ready?
  10. We will be mailing our ROC package next Monday, March 5th; been eligible since Feb 5th, I was waiting for our tax return which I got today. Happy 2018 to all and best of luck to us on our journey. **** I did not see a March 2018 thread, if there's one please merge ***** Please copy and complete the latest version of this table.

  11. Hi Everyone! Hope all of you are doing well during the pandemic of Corona Virus! Here is my story, any suggestion or similar experience sharing are highly appreciated. Right now I have a pending I-751 for longer than a year (please refer to my posted timeline) and I submitted N-400 last month on Feb 5, 2020, hope to speed up the process of both I-751 and N-400. As you all know, in most of such cases there will be a combo interview scheduled in the next three months, while the interview could have been waived for an simple I-751 case if no N-400 get involved. Here comes the question, can I withdrawal the N-400 petition and keep the I-751 goes on as normal? How much chance a interview will still be scheduled for the I-751 in this scenario? The reason I am considering withdrawal the Naturalization Petition is because of the spreading of corona virus and the therefore caused racism led by Trump's administration discriminate against all Chinese by calling this virus "Chinese Virus". My relationship with my extremely right-wing US husband has been very fragile in the past three years, he basically hates all colored races and called them low class people, which is ironic because himself is Asian from Thailand and immigrate to the US in 80's by marrying an Caucasian US citizen (She divorced him after ten years marriage and two babies). My husband thinks I took advantage of him and this country because I obtained the green card through this marriage. Usually I try my best to avoid the arguments, but you can image how hard my life has been to deal with this. Oh by the way, I didn't set him up to marry me at all, he met me on the plane when I came to the US for business trip in 2016 and started courting me after that until we stepped into marriage six month later, we had a short loving period after marrying each other, and then all the racist comments starts show up. Long story short, right now he has been brain washed by Fox News everyday and called me VIRUS or yell at me "your country and your people are dirty, you Chinese spread the virus all over the world and you should get the hell out of this country." To be honest, I don't feel hurt anymore because those abusive words have been striking me constantly in the past few years, but my concern is, encouraged by the top leader of the country, this kind of racism and xenophobia will become more and more public and common. I doubt if the US will still be the diversified and inclusive country as I know that protect freedom of speech and human rights as always, especially under the administration of current government and president who is good at bragging about himself and blaming others. The dilemma I face is, I have to give up my Chinese Citizenship to become US citizen, which is a hard decision for me but I made my choice, but that was couple months ago before the explosion of the epidemic. Now I am worried about two things: First, if there is an interview scheduled for I-751, my US husband will not participate and I can hardly explain to the USCIS officer why he doesn't show. Second, even if I pass the interview and eventually get the US citizenship, the widely spread discrimination against Chinese in the US will make me suffer from every aspect of my life. So, back to the original question, do you think it is possible to withdrawal the N-400 petition and keep the I-751 case going on as normal? How much chance a interview will still be scheduled for the I-751 in this scenario? Is anybody been through the same situation before? Thank you for any helpful suggestions.
  12. Hello, Can we know ourselves, and track all our progress through this process here please. Only Non transferred cases please, which means your Center has to be YSC/POTOMAC originally. Let me start with mine: Filed on the 29th of June, 2019 Delivered and signed for on the 1st of July NOA/Extension on the 7th of July Biometrics & Biometrics status update on the 24th of October Still waiting ever since for progress πŸ™
  13. Good Morning VJs! We are currently filling out our I-751 form using an Acrobat Reader. We noticed that the box under the Acknowledgement of Appointment at USCIS Application Support Center where it states I, _____________ understand that the purpose...." fills automatically when we enter our names on Part 1 and Par 4. BUT it does not transfer our full names. Instead, it automatically transfer our initials and last names only. For example, if we put John Miller Doe and Amy Alex Doe, the boxes automatically fill out like these: I, J.M. Doe, understand that the purpose of USCIS ASC appointment is for me..." I, A.A. Doe, understand that the purpose of USCIS ASC appointment is for me..." Do guys have the same experience? Is this okay and normal to submit? If anyone submitted like this, did you have any issue regarding the form? How should we put our full names? Your help and responses are greatly appreciated!

Any information will be helping me a lot. Thank so much. Ana
  15. Hi there, I really appreciate the knowledge I've gotten on this forum. Thank you all. I was looking for a lawyer to file our up-coming i-751 Removal of Conditions form. We could probably do it ourselves, but just don't want to mess anything up. Found a lawyer on Avvo because of a comment he wrote a couple of years back that "he has never in 20 years seen an i-751 client of his have an interview request" . . . I then called his office and the receptionist there told me that ALL I-751 applicants since 2017 now have mandatory interviews -- ever since Trump got in power. According to her, waiving the interview is a thing of the past and we can be 100% sure we'll have one too. Is this your experience too? My wife and I have a completely legit marriage with tons of paperwork and documents to back it up, so either way I'm sure we'll be fine. But I would rather have avoided the interview. After all we already did one 2 years ago and it was stressful. Would truly appreciate your feedback!
  16. Hi guyz, I need some urgent advice regarding my I-751 conditions to remove residence. My interview is coming up this week for I-751 and would like to reschedule due to some personal issues I'm dealing with. What will be a very tangible excuse to give to cancel the appointment?? Your opinions, advice and anyone with similar experiences are all welcomed to comment. Thank you
  17. Hi all, I know it's a week away from July, though due to some hold ups at my end, I won't be filing my I-751 ROC until the very beginning of July. My conditional Green Card expires at the beginning of August and I could have filed back in May. Well, had we not been away from home until mid June and dealing with all manner of other things (a fractured Achilles Tendon being one of them!) I would have been on the case quicker. I've already completed the I-751 PDF, so other than being signed and dated, that's ready to go. What is taking a while is getting all the evidence together. I did manage to put certain things to one side since the date that we were married in view of the ROC, though there is still much I feel I need to find. Reading the USCIS guidelines it seemed pretty simple and it didn't appear that a huge amount of evidence is required. Then I read through this ROC section of the forum and saw some of the packages people had sent - how much stuff were they sending?!!! Got me all nervous when I started looking at how little I appeared to have. However, I have been gathering various items and already the "pack" is thickening up. I will be glad to get the pack completed and sent so that everything is back in the system so to speak. Then it will be a waiting game again. Those memories of the K1 visa and Adjustment of Status come flooding back! Good luck to all July 2018 filers. May your journey be smooth and timely, and that you'll very soon have your conditions removed. Let the July 2018 games begin!
  18. I have been following VJ off and on in last 2 years. I filled my I 751 divorced waiver in Aug 2016, received NOA after 5 days and received fingerprinting appointment after approx. 2 months. I was unable to check my status online it didn't recognize my receipt number. I received a letter from local USCIS office on March 23rd for an interview. I had an interview on April 25th, 2018. My interview officer checked my documents asked some questions and at the end, he said I am going to approve your application. On May 1st, 2018 my status on USCIS website updated with "New card is Being Produced". On May 3rd it changed it to New office has Jurisdiction. I freaked out and called my lawyer and he called USCIS office and told me that your case is approved don't worry about online status as they transfer my case to national benefits center. I got a letter in the mail it says that congratulations! we approved your application and you will get your green card within 60 days. after that I also receive a letter that my case was to transferred to NBC. After 21 days of my interview, i received my green card in the mail. Tips to prepare I 751 divorce application write a very good letter and get a lawyer to help you in this process. I took screenshots of my text msgs between me and my ex-wife I also received RFE and I already submitted all evidence so I attached one more letter of support and sent all evidence again. Attached 11 letter of support as I didn't have a joint lease and joint insurance. Interview experience: IO was really good he asked me about all the pictures and wrote it down about the event and when we took this picture. He asked my about my bank statement and asked the reason why we decided to get divorced. My lawyer went with me for an interview. Most important point is true information if your case based on reality and facts then you should not be fear of anything. A good lawyer is very helpful. I just wanted to share my journey with you guys especially those who are waiting and good luck!
  19. I filed i751 bona fide marriage with divorce/annulment pending procedings. I had an interview with uscis officer and once i handed him my annulment decree he said he can't adjudicate my case and interview me because legally my marriage never existed. If the law says that marriage never existed why does the form allows me to choose an option of bona fide marriage waiver ended in annulment? I waisted my money, time, only to go to USCIS and being refused an interview? The officer never looked at my bona fide evidence nor asked me questions. Is that some kind of loophole or misleading immigration law? I'm devastated. Anybody knows what I can Do? File a complain, write to Ombudsman?
  20. Hello, My wife has had to file an i-290b for "missing" her biometrics appointment. She was unable to make the first one but made the second and they still denied her. We filed the i-290b with evidence but have not heard anything back yet. Does anyone know if the status will be updated on the uscis website or ran into this issue? I can't seem to find much information, and not much of it seems reassuring.
  21. My husband was denied entry on his plane last night by Air Canada in the Lima, Peru airport. He had his passport, expired green card, and his I-797 notice of action showing that his green card is extended a year and he is authorized for travel while we wait for the removal of conditions on his green card. He also had an ETA (electronic travel authorization), which as far as I can tell, is all that is needed for a US permanent resident to travel to/through Canada. His flight goes through Toronto before entering the US. He was told that the I-797 was not a valid travel document. Has anyone else had similar problems? Any suggestions about what we can do to get him home? All Air Canada agents on the phone are very unhelpful, and they no agents arrive in the airport until 10pm, so he wasn't able to speak with anyone this afternoon. We're looking at other airlines, but don't want to pay an outrageous cost for a new ticket when there's no valid reason he's being denied entry.
  22. Hi everyone, I'm currently waiting to hear back on my removal of conditions (I-751) so that I can get the 10 year green card. My question is, how long after I receive the card do I have to wait until I can apply for citizenship? I know for spouses of US Citizens, the wait time to be able to apply is 3 years but is that three years in total or three years when you get your 10 year green card? Thanks!
  23. Hello. I'm hoping someone can help me here. I completed my biometrics a few months ago for my ROC based on marriage. Currently waiting for the next step. My marriage has ended in divorce in the meantime and I want to send an amended I-751 with request for divorce waiver along with the final decree. First question: Does anyone know the best mailing address for the Nebraska Service Center? Second question: I included a lot of bona fide marriage evidence in the original packet. I'm going to send the form and decree along with a cover letter explaining why the marriage failed and why I want to remain in the States. Is there anything else I should send that might help my case? I've read that the majority of waivers are approved but I'd like to cover all the bases. Thank you.
  24. With the hopes that this will help someone out there, here is my timeline. 2 year Green card expired on Feb 15, 2019 November 20, 2018 USCIS Received my petition January 11, 2019 - Biometrics Appointment - ( I had to call to get me receipt mailed - which arrived Jan 28 2019 - extending my green card to another 18 months ) january 16, 2020 - Case approved and new 10 year green card mailed to be delivered today ( 1/18/2020) No interviews, No request for evidence. All paperwork submitted by my attorney. This case was handled by the Vermont Center - As advised by my attorney I did not submit N-400 for naturalization, he says having 2 case pendings is not a good idea. Will submit N-400 within the next couple weeks which I have already paid for. Don’t want to wait too long for a fee increase.
