  1. Looking for feedback if any recent I-751 filers experienced delays with USPS to the Dallas PO box. USPS tracking says my package arrived to TX 75266 on Tuesday and available to pickup. It's been two full days now and the status remains available to pickup. Has anyone experienced this recently? If so, how long did it take for USCIS to pick up the package? Searching other threads and forums, some people say they are supposed to pick up daily. I don't know how long I can keep thinking tomorrow, maybe day after and so on. Any feedback will be appreciated.
  2. Hello, We were in the process of i751 filed on May 2016, removal of conditions and got an RFE notice. Not sure what happened but need to submit additional proofs now. Basically it is asking for last will with my wife's name, medical power attorney and few more sworn affidavits. The questions I have are 1. Has anyone obtained a will and/or medical power of attorney for the i751? If so what are the steps for it? I live in CT, not sure the processes are different for each state. 2. Does the sworn affidavits to be notarized? 3. Do I need to provide the documents such as tax transcripts, bank statements etc along with the RFE reply, even though it is not asked? Thanks Vinny
  3. 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!
  4. Hi All, My husband and I are currently working on completing the i-751 form. We are just confused with Part 7 and Part 8. I am the conditional resident and my husband is the USC. On page 6, Part 7 (Petitioner's Statement and Contact Information) items number 3, 4 & 5 (Petitioner's Contact Info) - should it be my husband's contact info? I am pretty sure it should be his HOWEVER on page 7, Part 8 (Spouse's or Individual's listed in PART 4's statement), items number 3, 4 & 5 (Spouse's or Individual's Contact Info) - should it still be my husband's still???? Also, since we are confused on those 2 parts mentioned above, could you please help clarify on who needs to sign on the following: - Page 7, part 6, item 6a (petitioner's signature) - Part 8, page 7, item 6a (spouse's or individual's signature) Also, for the items that do not apply to us, like we do not have children, should we leave those spaces blank or should we type in "n/a" or "none"? Please advise. Thank you so much in advance for your help!!!
  5. I have lived in 3 different places since after i got my green card. i managed to get and save my current and last residence information (lease, utility bills, letters) to be a supporting document for my I751. The problem is, with my first residence. We lived in my father in-laws' property and we didn't have any rent or utilities that we needed to pay. We also had a mailing address which we used in everything. Now, i don't know how to prove that we lived in that address. I was thinking of getting an affidavit of previous residence but i don't know how to proceed with it. My FIL is always so busy and i doubt he'll have time to help me with this and we live across the country. I need to submit my ROC packet asap. Any tips and suggestions? Thank you!
  6. Hi I will have N-400 interview with pending I-751 so I suppose I will have two interview at once. What documents should I bring? I'm planning the following: -wife -marriage certificate -green card and extension letters -passport and driver license -tax returns and tax transcripts -selective services registration What else? Thanks!
  7. After June 28th 2018 the processing times for the form I751 seem to have changed. The Receipt of Application now takes just a few days (4 or 5) and they send you Notice of Action saying that the money was cashed out including also the Extension letter (for 18 months). Before June 28th, the Appointment for Biometrics letter was sent pretty quickly after the First Notice of Action, that seems to have changed because I am on my 8th week after my first (and only) notice of action (which by the way doesn't include any letter A-B-C, it was just a I-797), and I haven't received anything yet. Also, before June 28th; the actual Appointment for biometrics was something between 5 or 7 weeks after filing, and as I said I am on my 8th week after filing and getting the first Notice of Action and I haven't had any other news about my case. I don't even know if the case was properly accepted and if everything was okay because I don't have any confirmation about it. I wonder if just the I-797 that included the extension letter was enough signal to let me know that everything was okay. I filled my case on July 11th 2018 and it was received by USIS on July 12th and the first and only Notice of Action arrived on July 16th 2018. Is anyone else experiencing new delays as well? Thank you
  8. I'm USC wife, I married my spouse on K1 Visa and have already filed AOS. Husband was given conditional resident card. He has 3 kids that were not included in I129F fiance visa application. We are preparing to file for his kids now and submitting 3 separate I130 petitions for them. We still under the 2 year marriage requirement before we file I751 for removal of conditions. I understand the children will also be given two year resident card also and may file before removal of conditions for CPR parent. Do we file I751 for CPR parent and the 3 children together to remove conditions same time?
  9. Hi everyone, filling out my I-751 divorce waiver and stumped on #13 (see attached). My divorce has started but will be finalized after the 90-day submission window ends so I'm not sure what to fill out in the Date of Divorce box. "Not final yet"? "Pending"? "TBD"? "Soon"? "Sometime in December"? Lol. Has anyone here been through this and know what to write? Google has been helpful thusfar, just stumped on this one thing. I know how particular they are. Thanks in advance for any input!
  10. I was a conditional resident that just got conditions on a green card removed this September. I had my biometrics in August 2017. I have received a 10 year green card on which in the white square in the right bottom corner it says "Fingerprint not available" instead of actually having a picture of my fingerprint there. What is the possible cause of that? Is that a problem? Is it going to affect my international travels (specifically being admitted back in the US) in any way? Do I have to file I90 to get a card re-issued?
  11. I file to remove conditions on residence on 12/22/2016 my case has been pending and it's currently outside normal processing times. My attorney file an e-request 3 weeks ago and I just received an email which says my case is currently been adjudicated and I should receive a notice of action within 45 days. Has anybody ever gotten this notice before?
  12. I have sent my I751 on September 8th to the California service center and it was delivered on September 10th. Its been 3 weeks since than, neither the cash was checked nor did I receive a receipt. My Green card expires in 4 days, I have already scheduled for an infopass appt on the 11th of this month. Is there anyone who is also facing similar delays? Also I checked that eversince I sent my application, the address has changed from Cali to TX. And they updated the address on the same day as my package was delivered. Can someone please advice me what to do? Should I refile and send to the new address?
  13. Hi everyone! I'll try to make this very easy to understand so maybe someone can help or for those in the same situation. I applied for my i751 removal of conditions on residence on December 2016 and also got a year extension letter for my green card. And in January 2017 i had my biometrics taken. So far everything okay. A year passed and still no answer or update on my case other than "fees were waived" which it was never waived because i paid for my application, apparently that was some kind of glitch. In December 2017 i got a i551 stamp on my passport extending my green card for another year, they also took my expired green card. At that point i was aware that the i751's were taking longer than usual to be processed. A few months after that i checked my status online and it said that on march 4th 2018 my case was received at my local office and thats what is there until now. In July 2018 i received a letter extending that stamp for 18 months, instead of 12 because of process delays. So now let's get to the "issues".. it's been 21 months since i applied and i still havent got any kind of uptade, mine receipt number is wac170xxxxxx (apparently those first 3 numbers mean something). In August i submitted an inquire for outside normal processing time and they answer that the case is still pending. Today when i called uscis, the officer said that my case is at the california service center, not at my local office (probably another glitch), she also said that CSC are still working on cases from march 2015, and that it takes from 22 to 44 months to get to December 2016 (when i applied). But in the uscis website it says that they are currently working on cases from January 2017, and i saw a bunch of people here that applied in 2017 and already got their cards. She also said that the law changed last year and the backlog is due to the fact that now EVERYONE needs to be interviewed. But again, i saw a lot people here that just got their cards in the mail without interview, and i also didnt see any law stating that. In their website it says that it MAY BE required. Bottom line is, who knows whats going on! So my question is, anyone going through something similar? Anyone that applied in December 2016 that got an answer or some kind of update? Thanks!!
  14. Hey everyone, My wife is here on a CR1. Over a month ago I filed here I751 condition removal form. I just got a rejection package saying incorrect or incomplete guarantee amount. It says the petition cannot be completed until it is corrected. Thing is her Greencard expired a couple days ago. #1 - What does Incorrect or Incomplete Guarentee amount mean? #2 - Her Greencard is expired!
  15. My conditional green card is expiring on Feb2019 and i am suggested to file Form I-751 around the first week of November. The thing is, my husband would be in training by the end of this year, maybe the whole Oct-Dec2018. So, how do i go about filing the form I-751 when he's in training? Should i go ahead and fill it up while he's here and just submit it on November? Or i could file it without his signature? And also about the fees, I've read that military can get their filing fee waived. Does that include the family too, or just the service member? How long does it take to get the 10yr green card after filing? How is the process? Is there any interviews or biometrics that would need me and/or my husband to attend to? I am planning a trip to go back home by the end of the year so if there's any appointments that i would need to attend to, i should just not pursue with my travel plans. Thank you for any information!
  16. I created this discussion for us whose online status became "USCIS Cannot Provide You with Information for Your Case, Please Contact USCIS at 1-800-......". Please share your thoughts and keep each other updated on any updates relating to your online status change. For myself, my case was actively being reviewed and 2 days ago the online status on USCIS web became that error/glitch message. But the status under my USCIS account is still the same: being actively reviewed.
  17. Hi all, I filed for ROC earlier this month at the VSC. I received my NOA1 a couple of weeks ago which had an EAC number. This EAC number didn’t work on the USCIS Case Tracker as expected so I have been waiting for my biometrics appointment letter hoping that would have another number on it to plug in online. The biometrics ASC appointment notice arrived today’s it has Form I797C at the top - but the letter only has the same EAC number on it. There are no other numbers apart from the Alien number. The same EAC number is at the top of the form under “Applicstion/Petition/Request number” as it is at the bottom next to a bar code. Has this lack of a second number happened to others? Is that normal? P.S. I filed the I751 before the green card expired - and the EAC number still doesn’t work online.
  18. Hi everybody, I just joined VJ today and really appreciate this great community helping each other out. My story yes there is always a story with everyone Got my CPR Aug 2016 Expiring Aug 2018 Married for three years and 4 months until the day of separation with one year and 8 months in the USA Divorce in progress no fault Divorce not finalized but will file for the waiver of good faith without the divorce decree Story: My wife left me on my birthday while I was at work and remained in contact with me until 330pm that day and then when I got home at 515pm she was gone. I opened my apartment and realized that paintings, holy book, suitcases and my collectables were gone. Her mother was visiting from the home country and her stuff was also gone. I looked up my bank account and realized that she took all the money as well. It was a lot of money believe me my life-long earnings as well as the inheritance that I received from my father. I started calling her and her family but they all blocked me. I was in a miserable situation. I have a very good job and was one of the reasons the money she took was the really good amount. Anyways, the little backstory now her family was very demeaning towards me and for them, divorce is just not a big deal. Her brother left his wife in the exact same fashion, vanished like a thief after stealing everything behind her back. She herself was nice with me apart from usual husband-wife arguments but used to be a completely different and at times abusive person while we used to meet her family. Her family would tell me that she sponsored me and that she deserves better lifestyle and diamond solitaire etc. List of abuse from their side can go on and on but I don't want to waste my reader's time. Moreover, my upbringing doesn't really allow me to defame someone I shared my life with and unfortunately she was not the right person. Yes I get angry on how she did it, diagnosed with PTSD, had an accident where I hardly escaped death, my work life has suffered tremendously and trying to keep my job etc Her family finally picked my call after my accident couple of days ago after she left and told me that they are filing for divorce and that they will throw me out of this country. I was told that I was given more than a year to adjust my social class as per their requirements and they don't think it is viable in the longer run. They wouldn't tell me her whereabouts and even threatened my father back home as well. They timed it perfectly just 4 months before the ROC deadline. I am concerned about the threats and their capability of inflicting damage to my immigrant status. I have lots of good faith marriage proofs and really not worried about that as I have everything in both of our names and that's why she was able to steal from me. Anyways, my question is they are dragging the divorce process intentionally to get passed ROC deadline in Aug 2018. My divorce attorney is trying but family law really doesn't care if the one of the party is suffering from immigration consequences. Her family would not let the settlement happen after numerous attempts to expedite divorce process and wants to drag it longer. On top of that, the judge assigned to my divorce case is notorious for favouritism for women. I have no problems with that but it should be decided on merits which even my attorney has doubts. My attorney is best in town for divorce by the way, and he told me that this judge would not worry about your immigration case as this is not the right law for it. She is asking for alimony, took around 120K, gold and diamond jewellery and I as an immigrant after earning this money after years of hard work is empty-handed. I need advise from this great forum on 1. How should I approach my i751 divorce waiver without divorce decree and its possible implications if her family write something frivolous to USCIS? 2. I am also confused about NTA as before going to immigration court do you still have working rights? I am asking this because a lot of people are unclear on this topic as immigration court date can take some time a year to become available and how is immigrant supposed to survive without any job? 3. If theoretically divorce gets finalized in the last week of August and I am out of status for 10 days, is this a reasonable justification to USCIS for late filing as I was waiting for divorce decree? Thanks in advance to everyone for reading and for any valuable advice!
  19. Good Afternoon All, I did not find any similar Topic so I thought it would be important for people to have some sort of guidance on what they are doing from past experiences. My 2 years GC expired in September 2016, I have applied for the ROC in July 2017, received the NOA in July 2016, and received my Biometric Processing Stamp at my biometrics appointment on 8/2/2016. My questions is: When do I actually NEED/HAVE TO make a infopass appointment? We all know that info pass appointments are useless the most of the times and lengthy all the times, however there are cases that in order to stay within the rules, you have to make one but I am not sure when. Is it withing 30 days from your Biometric Stamp date or what? If anyone could share their experience and/or answer the questions, I think it would be beneficial for all the ROC applicants. Thanks!
  20. If anyone can advise it would be really helpful. Yesterday my lawyer informed that my case i751 was denied to lack of evidence for a short story I had been married in 2014 for less than 2 years then got divorced for marital issues at 2016 so I had to file a divorce waiver However I got married after in 2017 again to a different person. Now, id on;t have too many options I see a lot of people talking about IJ but my previous lawyer advised to have my wife file for me new i130. I started to get concerned about the whole case. Can I get some advice Please?
  21. I am looking to travel in a few weeks for short business trip, I already have my Expired 2Y GC and i551 Stamp so it should be sufficient to re-entry. But I had my i751 interview last week and still waiting for a decision hopefully they will approve my case but what happens if God forbade my case got denied while I am outside of the country, what is the case when I tried to re-enter the US?
  22. My USC wife and I got married in good faith (arranged marriage) in Jan 2015 and I received my conditional GC in Jan 2016. I moved to the US on a student visa in 2010 and was on a work visa (H1B) when i got married. We jointly filed my i751 petition in nov 2017 to CSC. When i submitted the joint i751 i had included joint mortgage contracts, financial statements (credit and savings account), photos from marriage in US and India, vacations, family visits etc., air tickets, joint phone bills, joint car insurance, affidavits from friends and neighbors, my insurance showing her name as beneficiary, joint tax filing documents. We have been having issues since the last few months and have been going for counseling to see whether we can work it out. However, my wife let me know today that she'll be moving out next week back home (different state) and filing divorce right after that. Even after the counseling sessions, we couldn't reconcile our issues. The processing times at CSC is taking 18-20 months and my application was filed a little over 8 months ago. The last update I received was in May notifying biometric appointment is not required since they have past records and haven't seen any movement on my case since then. I'm not sure what the next steps are - some forums say no action is required until divorce is finalized, however others say to notify USCIS about the situation. In addition to evidences I had provided already I can also provide report from the counselor, 2017 joint tax, photos and itineraries from trips made in 2018, bank statements until next week etc. Any help will be highly appreciated. Also, is there a forum for i751 divorce waivers for 2017/2018 I can follow?
  23. Hey guys, still working on completing my I-751 package to mail and just adding some final touches as my green card (which was lost) expires on November 24, 2017. My question is, do you really need an affidavit to write letters? I mean i can get friends/family to write letters but i really don't want to bother anyone if you know what i mean. Below is a list of all the evidence i have so far, will this be enough to avoid an RFE and also to prove a bona fide marriage? or is it too little? We don't have any children, we rent a room so o lease and no car. FOLDER 1: Payment, Form I-751 and Letter Explaining How Permanent Resident Card Was Misplaced ü Cashier’s check for $680 payable to U.S Department of Homeland Security (Application and Biometrics Fee) ü Completed and signed Form I-751 by Petitioner & U.S Citizen Husband ü Detailed letter explaining how permanent resident card was misplaced and travel stamps for temporary travel from United States Department of Homeland Security and USCIS (I-551 stamp) FOLDER 2: Copies of Financial Records Showing Joint Ownership of Assets and Joint Responsibilities for Liabilities ü Jointly filed tax transcripts for; 2014, 2015 and 2016 ü Statements (every 6 months) from our joint checking account ü Copy of debit cards for joint checking account ü Life insurance policy from petitioner’s employer displaying spouse as a primary beneficiary ü Utility bill for cable/internet/home phone from Verizon showing joint occupancy ü Mobile bill from T-Mobile displaying shared mobile/data plan FOLDER 3: Evidence of Relationship ü Copy of marriage certificate ü Copy of driver’s license and learner’s permit displaying shared residence ü Mail addressed to both parties at mutual residence (previous and new address) ü Annual benefits confirmation from employer stating that my husband and I are included on each other’s benefits ü Boarding passes, travel itineraries and hotel reservation for various vacations taken throughout the years ü Photos throughout the years on different occasions
  24. Hi vj'ers! I've a concurrent application in process with USCIS for I-751 RoC (filed March 2017) at CSC (transferred to NBC on May 1st 2018) and N-400 filed online (Jan 2018 - local office Chicago IL). I'm married to a US Citizen wife. My wife and I are expecting our first baby in Nov '18. My wife wants to adopt my last name before our baby is born. We were thinking of initiating the name change process for my wife this week. But I'm not quite sure if that's a good option or not while my application for I-751 and N-400 is in process by USCIS. Theoretically, it should be fine provided we notify USCIS as soon as my wife changes her last name with SSA/DMV etc. Has anyone been in similar situation of changing name while their applications were in process? Even if not, any thoughts or suggestions are welcome! I'll be so thankful for your response!
  25. Hi, We are filing our I751, my wife has a 28 year old daughter who will not be joining us in the USA and lives in Brazil. Do I still need to put her down in section 5 under children information? I ask because the instruction say to put down children who are also looking to get there conditional green card changed.... she has not applied and has no intention of doing so..... I am a little confused. Thanks for the help.
