  1. So, I know we have a the super handy spreadsheet but for my own sanity, I wanted to make this thread in case any other SRC I-751 Filers would like to keep others updated if we hear anything. It seems that SRC went from full steam ahead to full stop. In previous filings, I was able to trace what month they were generally working on based on the monthly chats but now it looks like they've stopped abruptly. Anyway, I'll bring the tacos if y'all bring the updates!
  2. Hi. Do I understand correctly that a green card holder has to wait 5 years, or 3 years if marriage to a us citizen? Also, as I am now in the i751 rfe state, and hoping i will get approved , does the green card date mean the date when my first conditional green card was issued, or, in the event I get my conditions removed, will it be this new approval date? (I.e. when would my 3 year time frame start?) Thanks.
  3. Hello everyone! Next week I have my I-751 Divorce Waiver interview. Do I need my lawyer to come to the interview? Since this interview is to prove the marriage was bona fide I don't see why my lawyer should be there, he is charging me $900 to come. I used him to file and send the application and answer the RFE. Should I go by myself?
  4. Hello, i am new to this but i have very interesting situation. I originally filed remove of conditions back in 2012 joint but while it was pending we got separated so i hat to amend it to a waiver. i started dating my current wife before the divorce was final, today i have 3 USC kids with her. in 2016 i had my interview and didn't hear back until 2021 when i got my NOID. in that noid they claimed that i didn't prove that i was married in good faith and that my current wife was dating me before i even dated my first wife. i replied with additional evidence but they denied my case. my first wife past away in 2018 so i couldn't even use her as an affidavit to support my claims. With my denial i never received an NTA so i decided to re-file I-751 waiver this time it based on extreme hardship. i refiled couple weeks ago and got my receipt. my questions are: 1. Anyone had experience with 751 waiver based on extreme hardship? 2. Anyone traveled with a stamp after initial denial? if yes what was the experience? 3. did anyone had their i751 approved after a denial? 4. anyone was in this limbo for 10 years? Thank you so much!
  5. Hi all, as per following news release, anybody who has filed ROC i751 till Sept 4th will receive a new 24 month long validity extension letter (counting from green card expiry date). https://www.uscis.gov/news/alerts/uscis-extends-evidence-of-status-for-conditional-permanent-residents-to-24-months-with-pending-form Lets report here when we receive this one. Copy the following text; & fill in your details. i751 filed on: green card expired on: n400 filed? (Yes/No): new extension letter i797 recieved date: First 3 of Receipt Number (MSC/LIN/IOE etc) Thanks
  6. Hello, my spouse came in on CR-1, applied for i751 and has interview for ROC scheduled. Also now applied for N400 as soon as they became eligible 90 days before the 3 year mark. Biometrics have been taken, was given the study guide and told to wait for interview, and online status has updated to the same. The question is, is it possible that the upcoming ROC interview can be a combo interview, with oath ceremony scheduled after the conclusion of 3 years of permanent resident status? Field office is Kansas City which as I understand doesn't do same day oath ceremony anyway. Thank you!
  7. Hi, if case is still pending, would you recommend contacting a state senate or contact Ombudsman? What was your experience like and did you get your decision soon after the contact?
  8. Hello: I filed my ROC I751 with Divorce waiver on 4/2018. My time line: Came to USA as F1: 1/2015 Met Spouse: 3/2015 Got married: 10/2015 Filed I485: 4/2016 Got approved Conditional GC: 9/2016 Got Separated: 6/2017 Spouse filed divorce: 8/2017 Divorce approved (No kids): 10/2017 Filed ROC with Divorce waiver: 4/2018 USCIS Status after filing: June 1, 2018 Fingerprint fee for your Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence received. Your case is now properly filed. March 4, 2019 Your Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence, was transferred to another USCIS office. March 5, 2019 We transferred your Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence, to another USCIS office that now has jurisdiction over your case. February 4, 2021 Case is Ready to Be Scheduled for An Interview My case status is case ready for interview since 02/2021 and almost 4 years since I filed ROC. As per USCIS citizenship application eligibility, I became eligible to apply for N400 (naturalization) since July 2021. I am confused now what to do. Is this timeline or length of case is normal? Should I file N400 for naturalization or wait for ROC adjudication first? I contacted USCIS customer service in October 2021 about my case status and they said I should be interviewed soon. I filed case with sufficient evidence or whatever I had: Marriage certificate, My personal affidavit, Marriage pictures, Joint lease, Joint electricity-water-wifi-cell phone bills, Joint tax return of 2016 and 2017, 2 joint bank accounts, Joint 2 credit cards, 2 joint car loans, 3 affidavits from friends and family, 15-20 pictures, Counseling proofs and counselors letters for attempts to fix marriage, Divorce decree. I did not get any RFE for ROC yet and also USCIS customer service representative during phone call mentioned it was a good signal that I did not get any RFE which means I had necessary supporting papers in submitted file. I am really confused now about my status, my life and everything. I am almost 34 now and feeling like a boat without radar who does not know where his destination is going to be. Any advice or opinion regarding my situation? Thanks!
  9. Hello, I have a question here for ROC i751, how do I obtain an original physical copy/paper form of my final divorce decree with wet signs and seal and also my original marriage certificate in physical form from Texas? I am so confused by trying to search it online. I require the original paper form not email form of the divorce decree with original wet sign and seal, not certified copy as my divorce lawyer never gave me one, because I searched for it in my documents I had. I am sooo very confused on where to get it from. Please help and guide me. My local office is Los Angeles, California . But I was married and divorced in Texas. Thanks
  10. Hi Everyone, I created this post to bring together all i751 filers from California services center to compare our timeline and encourage each other during this challenging wait. Please share your timeline so we could all have a better estimation of the processing time. Our timeline is: October 31st: i751 sent to CSC November 5th: case received August 16th: Biometric Patiently waiting for card being produced!
  11. Hi everyone! I applied for I-751 to remove conditions on my green card a month ago. Two weeks ago, I received NOA stating that USCIS is processing my case, and my current green card is extended for 18 months. Today, I checked my USCIS account and was shocked to see that my petition was rejected due to insufficient funds. Has anyone been in the same situation? Do they usually send the paperwork back, or do I need to resubmit a new package? I really appreciate any help you can provide.
  12. Hi! I don't see a December 2020 subtopic yet, so I am starting one! My 90-day window opens on December 7th, currently assembling the additional evidence. Hopefully sending everything to USCIS at some point next week after the 7th. Good luck everybody!
  13. 2014-2022 Entered the US with J1 visa. Married to a US citizen. Got the conditional GC Marriage annulled by default, due to me not being present at the court for the verdict, and my ex’s accusations of infidelity in court… Moved on and married again. My wife and I are married for more than 3 years now. After the second marriage, I joined the US Navy. (Got discharged under honorable conditions) Applied for naturalization through the military. But my first application was denied; due to being on informal probation for DUI.🤦🏻‍♂️ While still on active duty, and after my probation terms have ended, I re-applied for naturalization! I passed the civics test, completed my interview and have been waiting for a decision for over a year now. My conditional green card through my first marriage has expired/got lost/terminated…I just have never been notified by the USCIS about it. Honestly, I’m just tired of this whole process…it is so frustrating and stressful to wait for a decision! It’s taking a huge toll on me and my health…I don’t remember how many times I called USCIS to get an update, but they don’t have any. I don’t even know what’s going on, or what my status currently is. I need help! I need to be able to travel and come back to US. I haven’t seen my family in 7 years now, and I need to be able to adjust my status, or get some type of documentation/stamp/visa/permit/card, ……anything! On top of that, my immigration attorney ghosted me. I haven’t been able to get any correspondence from her, or her law firm for 3-4 months now…I would appreciate any insight, advice and referrals. Thank you!
  14. Hey there. We are getting ready to send in our i751 + “packet” of evidence. I assumed this is sufficient for the adjustment of status on the green card, or do people actually get called in for interviews regarding the i751? We already went to USCIS Detroit for the initial green card interview, so I guess another interview seems redundant in my opinion. Does anyone know if it’s common or uncommon to be called for an interview, particularly in Michigan? Also, I read in the evidence request instructions about a written affidavit from friends or family. Is that a SUGGESTION, or REQUIREMENT? We’re putting this together around the holidays and no one has time for that honestly. Plus, it’s low key embarrassing. We’ve been married for over 2 years and have to go to the mercy of someone we know asking them to prove our relationship is legitimate? I’d rather not. People always look at us like it’s crazy all the hoops we have to jump through even after all this time and it’s exhausting and embarrassing explaining it to people who are very unfamiliar with the immigration process for spouses. Anyway…Any personal experience would be appreciated regarding those 2 topics! Thanks.
  15. I applied in July 2020, in May 2021 I received a RFE Now I just got an interview notice for Feb 2022 Do I need a lawyer to come with me at the interview? Will the officer behave differently if a lawyer is not present?
  16. needed to share my experience since it might being some peace to a few people! After going to the interview and not getting an approval I was very anxious and had a really bad time finding guidance online. i had to wait a whole year to get my interview date scheduled for my I 751 (assuming because of COVID)… finally on August 5th I had my interview and I was not approved. They said they needed to check some things. Today… finally after 2 months I received a notification that my card was being produced! No RFEs or second interviews!
  17. Please share your experience if you had i751 interview at Baltimore Filled Office.
  18. Hi All Members, i need your help as i am confused to file for N400. The problem is my Address. Let me tell you in detail in 2018 i came to USA after getting married to a US Citizen. Since then i was living in a Joint Family. Back in Aug 2020 i have filled a I751 using the address we were living in. In Jully 2021 we moved to our own apartment in the same street and as i told you we were living in a joint family i didn’t change my Mail address. And in have never requested to USCIS to for the change of address as that address is like my 2nd home. Now i want to file N400 and i am confused with the addresses. If i use new address for N400 then there’ll confusion as i’ll be having two petitions and both have different addresses. Can i use my new address as my current address but old address as Mailing address? Would it fine? Please help. Thanks in Advance
  19. Our journey to immigrate my wife here started in December of 2015. From the first form we filed, I-130, to most recently, the I-751. Through the help and advice from fellow forum members, I was able to accomplish this entire process with No RFE’s or legal help. logged into USCIS online status update this am and it showed, “New card being produced”. 👍🏻 I-751 filed May 2019 Interview was scheduled on Nov 8 for Dec 13. Dec 13 ROC interview completed. Status updated today, 12/21/21 to “New card being produced”. we’re done for now. Taking a breather from USCIS for awhile before filling the N400. We’re both stressed to the max!!! THANKS to all here for the advice and support! 🙏🏻🙏🏻
  20. Hi all, I applied to remove my 2 years conditions and my GC expired 3 months ago. I have my 24 month extension letter. I want to travel back home, Turkey and want to hear from your experiences. Are airlines aware of extension letters? Did anyone have any experiences with Turkish or Lufthansa airlines? I appreciate any feedback as I am overthinking about this very much. Thank you:)
  21. My wife filed the wrong form I90 instead of the I751, and we noticed it late. If we apply for the I751 now, we are going to be late. What is the best approach to fix the issue? Does anyone have any experience? Thanks,
  22. Hello guys, between personal checks and Credit Card Authorization, which do you consider most convenient and the best way to pay for i751 filing? Again, how do you write the words of the amount on the Personal Check? Thanks.
  23. Hello ladies and gents, I would really appreciate your help if you can chime in your insights. My wife is currently on a 2 year conditional GN, which she got August 2021. I just found out that i have been offered a good job which requires us to move from KS to GA. However, I, as a petioner, recently received a traffic violation (is considered as unclassified misdemeanor in KS). I can apply for a traffic diversion once i go to the court hearing. However, i estimated that the court hearing will be somtimes in Jan or Feb 2022, and that will not look well with my new employer. If i plead guilty with the charge, and this is my first time, how will it affect my wife's removal condition progress when she is starting to apply in May 2023? I love her so much that i am willing to back out of the accepted offer with the new employer if it will affect my wife's case. Thank you
  24. My wife received her N400 interview notice while the I751 case is still pending. She applied for N400 when she became eligible while waiting for the I751. The notice doesn't mention anything about the I751. Do we assume it is going to be a combo interview? I read in past posts that some mentioned their letters asked their spouse also be present. Her letter doesn't say anything like that; basically just ask for her, an interpreter (if needed) or attorney be present (If needed). I plan to go anyway just in case it is a combo. We live in North NJ and all along we are expecting the interview to be held in Newark NJ. For whatever reason her N400 interview is in NYC. Has anyone tried moving the case to their home state and reschedule? Or is it better to just go instead of moving things around? Any insights will be appreciated. Thanks.
