  1. 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!
  2. 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
  3. 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.

  5. Good Morning and Happy New Year! If this is in the wrong area, please feel free to move it. My husband will be applying for citizenship next month based on our continued marriage of at least 3 years. We have been waiting for an interview for his ROC since September 2019. The way things are looking with the Atlanta field office, I don't think we'll receive an interview date prior to his eligibility date. He became a legal permanent resident on 5/1/17, so based on the USCIS early calculator he would be eligible to file on 2/1/2020. He is going to apply on 2/2/2020 to make sure there are no issues with early filing. For those who have filed or are thinking of filing, what do you think of the below evidence? I appreciate any suggestions or advice. We included what was required per the instructions and a little extra just in case. Thank you so much!

  6. My husband and I filed for Removal of Conditions on September 13, 2019. The USCIS sent out the NOA (form I-797) on September 19 (we found this out from them later). When he hadn't received his NOA by October 1, he called them. They said to call back if he hadn't received it by Oct 13. He got antsy and called them again on Oct 8, at which point he was at least able to obtain the receipt number, and the person ordered a duplicated NOA to be sent out. Nov 5th rolled around and still no original or duplicate NOA received, so we both conferenced with a tier 2 person, and she sent out another duplicate. She said if we hadn't received it by Nov 20, to call back. My husband is in the process of calling them now, and I am sending out this post in the hopes that others who have had issues can make suggestions. Each time he (or we) have called, the mailing address has been verified and confirmed. We haven't moved. He's received mail from the USCIS previously at this address for Adjustment of Status, his GC, AP, Work Authorization, and EVEN the reminder for the Removal of Conditions process. So we are absolutely baffled by this. Oh, and he also isn't receiving emails that they said he should receive, and that email address has been confirmed during each call. Anyone have a suggestion? This seems very strange. Thanks for your time! UPDATE: today the USCIS tier 1 person informed my husband that the most recent duplicate was only sent out on Nov 15th, so if we haven't received it in 2 or 3 days, to call the post office. I mean, that does kind of make sense, but it doesn't explain why he never received an email notification. Anyway, suggestions are welcome still in the meantime. Thanks!
  7. With I-751 pending since October 2017, and biometrics complete, is it possible to apply for Global Entry with Green Card and Extension Letter or best to wait until ROC is complete?
  8. Hi everyone, I'm in an unusual situation, for which I haven't managed to find an answer in past discussions. I'm a conditional resident, and about two weeks ago I submitted my i-751 to remove the conditions and become a permanent resident (it's definitely been received at the VSC, because they cashed my check). Unfortunately, though, I think I've lost my green card. I last used my green card a week ago, to travel from Austin to New York. I'm still waiting to hear back from all the various lost property places (airline, airports, etc) I've contacted, but not feeling that hopeful right now. This has never happened to me before, and it's REALLY bad timing, because in 6 days time, I'm flying home to the UK for Christmas. I'm due to return to the US in early January, and now am very worried that if I go, I won't be able to re-enter. My green card expires at the end of February. I've yet to receive my NOA1. Hopefully that will come within the next week. The New York InfoPass centre has zero available appointments (same for the Long Island one). So I have a few questions: 1. If I receive the NOA1, but don't find my green card, will that, plus my valid UK passport, be enough for me to re-enter the US? 2. If I don't receive the NOA1 in time, is there any other document that could get me back in? 3. Is there any way to get an i-551 stamp without an InfoPass appointment? Should I try to make an InfoPass appointment at the London embassy? 4. I know that ordinarily I would use form i-90 to apply for a replacement green card -- but can I do that after having submitted i-751? 5. How screwed am I? Any help that anyone would give would be hugely appreciated. I'm feeling pretty freaked right now! I'll update this thread if I get any more information, or am lucky enough to find my green card. Thank you! FM
  9. I'd like some opinions friends! I set my Application to Remove Conditions at the beginning of July and received my I-797 dated July 5th, for those who have not yet seen one, it says "if you have not already done so, provide supporting documents to assist USCIS in processing your petition and to establish eligibility to remove the conditional basis of your permanent residence. Please include a copy of this receipt notice with any supporting documents you submit" which tells me I am still able to submit evidence that I think will assist in building my case of eligibility. My husband and I sent a good amount of evidence and I feel confident in everything I sent however, we have never had any kind of benefits or insurance since I moved here and he just started a job that has benefits including medical, dental, vision, life, AD&D, disability, 403B, and FSA accounts which he enrolled both of us in so all of the benefits list me as his spouse who is either active on the policy or the beneficiary and my job just started offering a 401K which I enrolled in and he is the beneficiary, all of the benefits become effective August 1st... My K1 and Adjustment of Status were very easy, I didn't have any RFEs or issues and I didn't get selected for an AOS interview. I don't feel that my application will be denied without this information or that I will receive an RFE because I did submit a good amount of strong evidence however, I was wondering if you guys think it would be beneficial for me to send it anyway (especially because my petition is freshly filed within a month) or if I should just take it to the interview if I get selected for one? Thanks in advance for any friendly advice Sydney
  10. Good evening, My stepdaughter that i petitioned for is now living with her biological mother during her removal of conditionprocess. My concern is that my stepdaughter brought it to my husband's and I's attention that she is receiving free lunch. Which us federally funded. Can I be penalized for this as i signed an affadavit of support? Im also not sure if she is using her to get other public assistance.
  11. I received my green card (From K1 visa) in March and I just got admitted into a graduate school 5 hours away (driving) from where we are living now. My husband is going to move with me but he has to wait 4 months to quit his job. Of course he will visit me every two weeks but we won't be living together those 4 months. Is it going to be an issue for our removal of conditions process? Will we get in trouble with USCIS for doing this? Our priority is being together and not risking anything for ROC Thanks!
  12. I know there's a (still unresolved?) debate about filing N-400 when I-751 is pending, but what do the law/regulations/case law/USCIS decisions really say on this? Does filing an N-400 really "compel" USCIS to act on the I-751? Why can't they just suspend your N-400 till a decision is made on the I-751, however long that takes?
  13. Hi everyone. My husband (USC) and I (immigrant) moved to a new address in February. I filed for my change of address online with AR-11 few days after the move. Today, I received my ROC reminder letter through auto-forwarding with USPS. USCIS sent the letter to our old address. I thought it was weird since I already filed for the change in February. I only got a request confirmation thru email. I also just found out my husband needs to file his own change of address today! (ignorance of the law excuses no one, I know). We are going to mail his i-865 as early as we can tomorrow. I hope everything will be okay. We are due to file for my ROC next month. Should I file for another AR-11? My husband's change of address is definitely past the 30 days period. Is it going to be okay? I am soo freaking out right now! Anybody had the same experience? What did you do? HELP!
  14. I'm married to an American. My 2 yr conditional green card expired Nov 2018. Prior to that, I filed I-795 to remove conditions. I later received a Notice of Action letter which serves as an 18 months extension to my green card while my I-795 is pending. I have even done my biometrics. In May I would like to travel to my country, Jamaica, for only 2 weeks. The extension letter clearly states to bring my passport, expired green card and the extension letter upon re-entry in the US. I just want some reassurance that this is fine to do so. Does anyone have any experience with this?
  15. Hi all! Last year I applied to remove the conditions on my residency. Apart from the receipt of the application and the extension of my residency for a year, I haven't heard back from USCIS since. The one-year extension I got is expiring in 3 months and I am not sure what to file for next. Do I file for another application to extend the extension? Any help would be appreciated!
  16. Hello, My husband has reached the two year mark on his conditional resident visa, and we sent in our paperwork (I-751). We never received a reminder of this, and did not send the paperwork in exactly 90 days before. We sent our paperwork in December 20th, which they sent back saying that there were problems with the packet. We fixed the problems and sent it back in. They received and accepted the packet, acknowledging this at the end of January, and sent us a letter stating that my husband was to attend an interview for his biometrics February 14th. We went to that interview and that was it. However, we never received a letter giving him the extension on his green card, which USCIS says was supposed to have arrive with the biometrics letter. His green card expires today and we are very confused as to what we need to do. We called USCIS two days ago and the person we spoke to said that we needed to make an appointment at a field office and request an "Aided Stamp". The nearest office was 6 hours away, so my husband drove there just for them to tell him that they would not give it to him and that he needed to just wait for a letter. Is this true? What should be done now? The person at the office said that he is not illegal because he started the process for the removal of conditions before his green card expired, but we are quite concerned. Any clarity on this would be helpful. Thank you, dhm2
  17. My situation is a bit unusual. I found a couple of posts here for people going through something similar but not exactly the same, that's why I'm starting a new post. Here is the story: I filed I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence in January 2018. I received an I-797 Notice of Action which extends my conditional resident status for an additional 18 months. My conditional green card (permanent resident card) expired in March 2018. I lost my wallet with the expired conditional green card in it last month. So now, I have the I-797 Notice of Action documents that extend my conditional permanent residency status but I do not have the expired conditional green card itself (The physical, original card itself). Now, I'm eligible to submit my N-400, Application for Naturalization to get my citizenship Now, given the above context, here are my questions: What happens if the N-400 application is approved, the biometrics and interview are done, and it's the oath ceremony when I'm supposed to be getting my naturalization certificate, but by that time, I still don't have my 10-year green card and I don't have my old expired green card? I read somewhere that they wouldn't give me my naturalization certificate if I don't hand them my green card on that day! Should I file an I-90 application? Does it even apply for my case? I already have an I-751 going. Also, does it even work to file an I-90 to replace a lost green card that also happens to be expired? I'd really appreciate your input here. Thank you!
