Update for I-751 Forms Received May 1 to Sept. 9

USCIS announced an update last week regarding the processing of Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence. This form is for those who received their green card through recent marriage to apply for full permanent residence. This update is in reference to when the filing address for the form was changed to that of a USCIS lockbox facility on September 10, 2018. 

USCIS provides the following instructions for I-751 petitions received between May 1st and September 9:

If a Form I-751 was received by USCIS during this time, then the petitioner should expect a receipt notice by October 22nd. Petitioners that do not receive a receipt are instructed not to file another Form I-751 unless the CSC directed them to do so or if their petition had been rejected. 

In the event that a two-year green card has expired with no receipt notice, the petitioner can go online to schedule an INFOPASS appointment at the local field office. Any evidence of the courier service taking the form should be brought to the appointment. 

Petitioners/applicants should check the USCIS website for the most up-to-date filing addresses.
