1797 extension
Hello everyone,
I have a question regarding the extension,
I received my receipt about the extension ( not the original doc ) because I used an attorney the actual document was mailed to them. Tho they claim they never received it, so I have to get infopass appointment to get my passport stamp they offer me a 3 month or 12 month stamp, I opted out for the 3 month because otherwise they will take my expired green card away and I use it for “ready lane”(Faster lane to cross back to USA) ( I live in a border town and cross to Mexico on my days off to visits my parents ). Anyway so my stamp was expired April 8th and since office are closed I am not able to renew my stamp, so I was going through my paperwork and I noticed that my attorney have provided a photo copy of the actual original I797 extension notice, so I called the and ask them if I could have the extension and I explain the whole issue with office being closed, they said they never received it, so I question, how come you have a photo copy of it? They said that what they got from USCIS, which I find odd, I don’t think USCIS will send a photo copy.
Now my question it’s, is it that possible? Or my attorney list the extension and they just making things up?
Also I been trying to get another original document by calling and they have direct me to send a request to this lockbox email, but I haven’t been successful of getting one in the mail.
Have any of you have any thoughts? I am little bit confused about why my attorney “didn’t get it” or why didn’t I.

Please share your thought or advice

He change his last name to Mines.

I would like to remove conditions with bonafide evidence I have been married and living together since the next day until now.

Any help? I know every case is different but I would like to have some hope. I don't wanna live in a Toxic Relationship just for being Afraid. Thank you!

Trying to figure out how that happens? I see most of them have filed from Houston. Is that the reason?

I-751 July 2019 Filer (TX)
Hi all,

Thank you for all the information.

I have a quick question regarding my online status on the official uscis website.

I filed in July 2019 and did my biometrics in the first week of December 2019. Since then I have not heard anything. However, I recently logged on to my uscis account and under the "Last updated" field, it shows that the case was updated in April 2020. Also, the main information regarding the case status ("fingerprints have been applied") has not changed, just specifically the date in the "Last updated" field. However, I have not received any new communication after the "fingerprints have been applied" since December 2019.

Can anyone help me understand the situation? is it normal to have the "Last updated" field in your cases updated? or am I missing anything regarding my case

Thank you,

California timelines for I-751
Hi guys - I'm due to apply for Removal of Conditions in September 2020. I had an interview when I got my conditional GC. It's a legit marriage.

1) Any other California i-751 filers out there who have recently received their Perm GCs? How long did it take you? Any Calif I-751 filers out there who've been waiting more than a year?

2) Since I've already had my interview and its a pretty straightfoward case, I am assuming there will NOT be an interview for the ROC - how true is this?

Photos for i-751
Hello, I will be submitting my packet this Monday. Just wondering if someone could help me with the photos I need to submit.

Do they have to be from our beginning of relationship, or pictures from after I obtained my 2 yr green card?

Also, about how many photos are recommended? Ive read that 10-15, but a couple of people have posted that they submitted “ a ton”

I-693 & 60 days rule
"Applicants to submit a Form I-693 that is signed by a civil surgeon no more than 60 days before filing the underlying application for an immigration benefit."

How do USICS count the 60 days? For example, does it start from a civil surgeon signature to a package being delivered?

Example timeline:

Mar 1st civil surgeon signture
April 20th AOS package delivered with I-693
May 5th notice of receipt

If USICS count it to NOR, then I-693 is invalid.
