18 months extension for conditional green card holders

Starting June 11, 2018, conditional  residents who file Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence, or Form I-829, Petition by Entrepreneur to Remove Conditions on Permanent Resident Status, will receive an 18-month extension of their green card.   

The extension is granted by the Form I-797 receipt notice issued by USCIS.   Previously extensions were granted for only 12 months.  The longer extension period is to accommodate the longer processing time for the Form I-751 and I-829 petitions.
