Waiting for Receipt
Hello, does anyone have an idea as to why it's taking so long to receive a receipt? My documents was mailed to Phoenix Arizona by my lawyer. Apparently, I think it was mailed since Oct 22 and now it's Jan and we still haven't gotten a receipt. We filed I 1-30 & I-485.

i751- no response
Back in March 2020 I filed my I-751 with a waiver due to the fact that my husband and I separated. I submitted all my documents and received a notice 2 weeks later for my 18 month extension.
I received an email notification in August 2021 that an RFE was sent to me but I never received it. I filed online twice to let uscis know but I got no response. Each time I called, I was told that I would have to write a written letter to The Nebraska service center with any questions I had because they couldn’t be answered on the phone- even when I asked where the RFE was mailed to or what it was about.
Due to covid, we just finalized our divorce in October 2021.
Since my extension expired, I was able to get an Infopass appointment to get my I-551 stamp and also ask about my case. The officer I saw in the field office literally told me she doesn’t know why, but she cannot locate the RFE on my case or any information to give me and advised that I put in a request through the FOIA (freedom of information act) portal and that might be the only way to get the RFE. Luckily, my passport was stamped with the I-551. I also mailed over my final divorce decree and another request to receive my RFE.

Has anyone else been in this boat? I’m scared that I May be in denial proceedings and I don’t know because I cannot get any information.

Stay outside the US on a green card
As a green card holder, how long can you stay outside the US in a given year- is it 6 months out of the 12 months in a year, or 6 months at a time (which could amount to more than 6 months total in the year)? Thank you for any responses.
