  1. 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 🙏
  2. My wife and I sent in our form I-751 in Dec. 2019 for a permanent green card. Our conditional Green card was extended for 18 months. That 18 months expires next month on Aug. 23. Today we received a letter requesting more evidence. Our new evidence must be submitted before October 18th. Some of the evidence we cannot supply, such as evidence of children or leases. I did not send them a copy of the marriage certificate with the I-751 application because I had already sent them a copy earlier. Now they are requesting another copy. The IRA beneficiary form I sent was not dated. I plan to send them what I can. I have 3 questions. 1) The green card 18 month extension will expire on Aug. 23. The submission deadline for the new evidence is Oct. 18. My wife will not have valid green card between Aug. 23 and Oct. 18 and while I am waiting for a response from USCIS? 2) What do they mean when they say" Include duplicate copies if you are requesting consular notification"? 3) They sent a tiny return envelope . There is no way I can use it to send the evidence. I will have a lot of papers and will require a large envelope. I appreciate any advice while I work on gathering these documents for evidence. Thanks...
  3. Wondering how much notice everyone had between receiving their biometrics letter and the actual appointment? My I-751 was received 4/15, NOA1 5/3 MSC center, haven’t heard anything since and I know some people have waited up to a year for biometrics. The UK just made entering the country much easier and after not seeing my family for 2 years I’m desperate to go back, however I’m worried we will miss the biometrics appointment by being away for 10 days. We are moving to a new house in a couple of weeks and don’t know anyone to check our mail for us while away. Any advice is very welcome!! Thank you.

  5. 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.
  6. Hi All, Starting a thread for Aug 2020 I-751 Filers. I sent my package in today, but I doubt USCIS will receive, accept and process my documentation before early next week. Let the discussions/emotions/arguments/debates/consolations begin See my signature for my timeline, and fire away... This was my submission package
  7. Creating this topic thread for all the March 2020 I-751 Removal of Conditions Filers
  8. Hi everyone so I applied for my I-751 last year and went for my fingerprints in March but it’s been a year and still no update or letter in the mail. Can anyone give my any info if they have been waiting so long? I’m just scared my mail got lost. Every time I try to phone they just make me speak to a machine and they don’t put me through to an actual person. Please help.
  9. Let's do it. Working on my documents to send out mid Jan 2018. Happy ROC!!!
  10. Hi everyone. Just wanted to start this thread for all of us filling for ROC in May 2019. Welcome to the group!!!
  11. I just came across the USCIS applications statistics for Q2 (Dec - March). In Q2, USCIS received 53,009 cases, approved 48,903 cases, and denied 1,698 Cases. YTD, USCIS approved 80,632 cases, and denied 3,068 cases for total 83,700 cases reviewed. Currently there are ~205,000 cases pending, per usual. YTD Approval Rate, 96.3% Q2 Approval Rate, 96.6% Last year Approval Rate was ~ 95% https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/document/reports/Quarterly_All_Forms_FY2021Q2.pdf
  12. I am preparing my wife’s I-751 packet. We need to send it in about a week. We had thought it would be very quick to prepare because it doesn’t require another Affidavit of Support, but it’s a lot more work than we thought! We saw some RfEs on this forum today that definitely showed us the importance of preparing this package well. Our current situation: We don’t have kids yet. For nearly the first year of our marriage, we didn’t have a home of our own and didn’t have utility bills. We were staying at my parents’ condo officially while we were looking for a house, then having our house built. During the last 3 months that our house was being built, we rented from friends during the workweek (it was not a formal lease) and stayed at the condo on the weekends. Several of our utilities now are paid through our HOA and not separate bills. Our HOA’s directory lists both of us as living at our house. None of our utility bills have my wife’s name on them. I’ve asked these companies today if they can change this. My wife’s name is on the contract and title of our house, but not our mortgage. We had thought that her lack of credit history in the US would impact our interest rate. We have 2 affidavits from people we know and will hopefully get at least one more. We filed our taxes separately in 2018 (we got married that December) but jointly in 2019 and 2020. In general, we are beneficiaries on each others’ benefits at work, but we don’t share any medical insurance policies because it would cost us more this way (due to how these policies are set up with our employers). We do have the same doctor and dentist and try to get back-to-back appointments where we can. And we do have the same car insurance policy. We have had a lot less travel, going out, and photos than we had anticipated before the pandemic. Only one of our bank accounts is truly set up as a joint account. About 6 months after we got married, I set up my other accounts to transfer on my death to my wife. Her name has been on these accounts’ statements since then, but the accounts are individual. We use one Mint account to keep track of all of our bank accounts. My wife’s paychecks get deposited to the joint account, and mine get deposited to my checking account since that account is used to pay our mortgage. My wife does not have a credit card in the US. She has one back in Singapore (her country of birth and citizenship; she lived in Australia when she met me) and uses my card for her online purchases. I think she is an authorized user of my card according to our bank, but I’d need to double check. Only my name is on these statements. In light of all this, I have been thinking about different sources of evidence we could also provide: Receipts (with both of our names) for furniture for our house Receipts for online purchases that both of us have made (showing that we live at the same place) Other bills that show both of our names and address Given the information above, I have several questions about proving our joint financial assets: 1. Do I need to send USCIS the bank statements for my individual bank accounts too, or only the joint account? 2. Do we need to include each month’s statements for my credit card? (If so: the bank provides a “Summary of Charges” document each year which shows all of our transactions with the card for the year and would save a lot of paper. Could I send that in instead, to cover as much of the time since we got married as possible?) 3. Where the VisaJourney I-751 sample refers to a copy of the title of our house, which document is that? Is this the same thing as a title deed (in our case, a several-page document on legal-sized paper) or a one-page certificate of title (which I’m not sure if we have or even can get in the time we have)? 4. I have a similar question about the title of the car in both of our names. I haven’t found a certificate of title or it yet, just our registration, which has both of our names on it. May I just send in a copy of the registration? 5. Is there anything else about our current situation that we should be aware of as I prepare the packet? Any other ideas or advice?
  13. hi everyone! June filer here. I will be sending my documents on next Monday. Which service you guys have better experience with? USPS? UPS? FEDEX? Last time I used Fed Ex did not have any issues. would like to hear more options and experiences! Good luck everyone!
  14. Good afternoon, Hoping to get some insight regarding the scheduling of the I-751 interview. My wife's case status was updated to "Case Is Ready To Be Scheduled For An Interview" about a month ago. Heard reports that cases can be in this status for up to a year or longer. Is this true? I know for her CR-1 application was in "ready for interview" to being scheduled in less than a month I feel like. Side note: My wife will have been a PR for the 3 year requirement next month. Is she eligible to apply for citizenship while her I-751 is still pending? Or do we need to wait for that to be approved and closed out before we can submit the paperwork to begin the citizenship process? Any insight would be a huge help!
  15. Hello, I filed I-751 since January 12, 2021. Received my NOA on Feb 27 but still hasn't received Biometric Appointment Notice and it's been over 3 months now. Does this happen to anyone? I'm trying to contact them by the phone, sent e-request but has no luck. They never response. Any suggestion is much much appreciated here. Thank you!
  16. Hello, I have an info-pass appointment coming up since my extension letter is expiring, and I was wondering if the officer is going to take the CGC? Also, is going to be 6mo, or a year (No pending N400)? Thank you!!
  17. Hi all, I sent in my I-751 application for a ROC in Dec and got my extension letter about 6-8 weeks after that no problem. Recently I received a letter about my fingerprints without my apartment number on it. My mailman at my condo complex guessed and luckily got it right but I am very concerned. Since this is the only notice I’ve ever gotten that’s been addressed incorrectly I am thinking it’s due to something on their end, but nonetheless I want to make sure I have all my info entered correctly in their system. I tried to use Emma, as someone suggested but that was useless. It directed me to a phone number, which was also useless because I tried a dozen times and couldn’t find a way to be connected with a human or find out the info I needed to. My two options as I see it are: create an online account or file AR-11. I can file one of those but I’ve been considering creating an online account for a while now and I honestly don’t know what stopped me before. Now that I am considering it, I am wondering if a) it’s possible to connect the application I’ve already sent off with my online account. Like, how will they know it’s me and have the correct info. b) if this is a smart thing to do because when I sent off my application months ago I didn’t fill out the online USCIS account number boxes bc I didn’t have one. So now if I create one will that confuse the system? c) anything else someone wants to add in about creating an online account! thanks for much for all the help guys, you are the best!
  18. So, I sent in my application in dec and just got a letter today saying they can use my previous biometrics. The concerning thing was that my husband and I live in an apt and the envelope didn’t have our apt number on it. The mailman guessed and got it right but it’s extremely concerning. When we sent in our application we quadruple checked so I highly doubt we missed something that big but I want to make sure they have our correct address for obvious reasons. Anyone know the best way to go about that?
  19. Hi everyone. The why doesn't really matter now, but I was never able to apply to remove my conditions on my 2 year greencard. Today in the mail I recieved a "termination of conditional residence status" informing me that as of 05/08/2018 all rights and privledges to reside and work in the US have been revoked. I'll attach the letter. I now need to know....what the do I do now?! I was actually just getting my package together over the next week. The letter doesn't say what to do. Thanks all
  20. Hello all! I am in the middle of completing my I-751 from to remove the conditions on my residence (my husband is an American citizen) The form asks me for my USCIS Online Account Number (if any) I DID have an USCIS online account when applying for my spouse visa...Although I've tried to log into it and it seems to no longer exist. Myself and my husband were using it during 2018/2019 to upload documents etc. It was three letters followed by ten numbers. So I thought that is the number they are looking for on my I-751. I have done some Googling and most websites seem to agree the USCIS online account number is three digits followed by 10 numbers. However on the I-751 form there only seems to be 12 spaces to write in.... Whereas my old USCIS account no. requires 13 spaces. Can anyone explain this mystery to me? Part of me feels I should defintiely include the number and part of me feels that since the account appears to be inactive AND because the letters/numbers don't fit properly that I should just leave it blank? Any thoughts gratefully received. Thanks!
  21. Hello, Has anybody here experienced interview for ROC (removal of conditions)? My case went to Ready to be Scheduled for interview last Saturday after almost a year of waiting. But still waiting for the letter in the mail to make it official though. What are the questions typically asked? Should hubby be present too at the interview? Thanks is advance.
  22. Hello, My immigration lawyer assisted with i-751 filing in January 2018. This was an early filing as my 2-year green card expired in September 2018. Lawyer explained the battered spouse waiver permits early filing. Submitted a 9-page personal statement on the emotional, psychological, and financial control and cruelty I experienced from the now ex-husband. Together with letter from counselor at a domestic violence service provider, psychiatrist diagnosis of PTSD and Major Depressive Disorder, 4 separate police reports, and 6 affidavits from friends supporting the marriage and the subsequent abuse. 19 months later, I received RFE from USCIS stating: 1) my personal statement was credible; 2) insufficient evidence of battered spouse; 3) I need to submit further evidence such as medical reports, photographs of injuries sustained from U.S. Citizen Spouse, and personal statement as well as affidavits from others supporting that I suffered as a battered spouse; 4) no mention of bona fide proof of marriage. The problem is the abuse never became physical. Had I stayed longer, it very well could have become physical. That is besides the point. It has been challenging to manage my emotions since the receipt of this RFE because A: I am reminded of the abuse that I have started to slowly heal from; and B: my immigration lawyer has been on vacation for the past 2.5 weeks. The deadline to submit additional evidence is in 7 weeks. Questions: 1. Has anyone been in a similar situation? Could you please share your experience in terms of what further evidence can be submitted? 2. The marriage has ended in February 2018 with a divorce. I understand should the current i-751 ultimately be denied, I can re-apply with a divorce waiver. Should I re-apply now or proceed with the current filing? 3. Should the current filing ends up in removal proceedings, will I have the opportunity to request in front of an immigration judge to consider my case for a divorce waiver? 4. Since there was no mention of additional evidence requests in the RFE, does that mean USCIS has determined that I submitted sufficient evidence that the marriage was in good faith? My ex-husband did not allow for my name be added to his accounts, instead he asked me to write him checks each month when I got paid. Also, we purchased a co-op apartment together (in both our names), and filed taxes together for 2 years. Much appreciated.
  23. Hi all, May 2019 I-751 filer here and just received an NOA with an interview request for April 16, 2021 in the Portland field office. My question: do they allow long-term rescheduling, such as for July? What would be a valid reason for this? We are stuck overseas can probably only come back in July. As a long shot, can we do this in a consulate overseas? Most likely not but just putting that out there ;). Thanks in advance. Key text in the NOA: "You are hereby notified to appear for the interview appointment, as scheduled below, for the completion of your Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence (Form I-751).... call the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) Contact Center at 1-800-375-5283 as soon as possible to reschedule your interview. There is no penalty for requesting that your appointment be rescheduled."
