    I-751 How long does it take to get the new greencard?

    Hi guys!
    I am posting this in the wrong spot, but I can't figure out where to put it, sorry! I was wondering how long it should take for Mr. C to receive his new green card after we send in the I-751 to remove conditions.
    His current green card expires Sept 5, 2010, so I was going to have everything ready and mail it in 90 days beforehand on June 5, 2010. (right?) So when do you think he will get the new one?

    thanks for your help!

    I think it may depend on the processing center the application gets sent to, but I just check the CSC and the VSC and both said 6 months (you can check here: https://egov.uscis.gov/cris/processTimesDisplay.do).

    That seems like a long time to me, but hopefully it won't take that long.

    I would apply as early as you can if the processing times are really that long. It sounds like you are planning on doing that. Congratulations on surviving this far!

    Thanks cupcake! I just stalked you on facebook and sent you the same message! I just saw on Visajourney that when you send in the application, they will send you a page saying you can travel and work for one year. You can use this in the event your green card doesn't come in time. Did that happen for you guys?

    I didn't remove conditions, but one person I can think of immediately that did remove conditions somewhat recently is AzulyVampy.

    "Mailing the Packet & What to do While You Wait

    The I-751 form and accompanying documents are mailed to either the USCIS California or Vermont Service Centers (click here to see the filing location for your state) depending on your state of residence. (Use certified mail or priority mail with delivery confirmation, and write "Attention: I-751 petition to remove conditions of status" on the envelope under the address.) You will receive a notice of receipt for the form stating that "Your alien card is extended one year - employment and travel authorized". Keep the receipt with your green card. If by some chance you are not approved within a year you will want to make an InfoPass appointment to go to your Local Office to request an I-551 stamp in your passport. This does happen as it sometimes it takes over a year to be approved. After your NOA extension expires, this is your only evidence of legal status which you are required to have, by law. This happens occasionally, that a case takes over a year, but it's rare. Local Offices will not give an I-551 stamp is you have another type of evidence of status (ie, expired Green Card + extension letter)."
