According to a recent announcement from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services; beginning June 11, 2018, those 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 a Form I-797 receipt notice granting an 18-month extension from the date of the conditional Permanent Resident Card, instead of the usual 12-month extension.
This change in extension by way of Form I-797 receipt notices for Forms I-751 and Forms I-829 is in response to the increased adjudication processing times of these petitions over the past year.
Those who had pending Forms I-751 and/or Forms I-829 on June 11, 2018 will be issued a new Form I-797 receipt notice with the new 18-month extension.
If you need assistance filing Form I-751 or Form I-829, please contact our office at 919-932-4593.
