USCIS has begun issuing new receipt notices for certain Form I-751 petitions to replace some previously issued inaccurate receipt notices. Form I-751s are used by conditional permanent residents who obtained a Green Card through marriage and want to apply to remove the conditions on their permanent resident status.
USCIS had previously issued receipt notices for certain pending Form I-751 petitions, extending the conditional permanent resident status from 12 months to 18 months, and providing them an additional six months of status while they were waiting for their petition to be adjudicated. As some of those receipt notices contained incorrect information, USCIS is reissuing new receipt notices in those cases.
The following petitioners, attorneys or accredited representatives will be receiving corrected original receipt notices:
- Petitioners who do not have an attorney or accredited representative, but have received a receipt notice that said their attorney or accredited representative received the original receipt notice;
- Attorneys or accredited representatives who have received a receipt notice that has incorrect information.
Such petitioners, attorneys or accredited representatives, who have not received a corrected receipt notice by November 15, 2018, must reach out to the USCIS Contact Center.
Conditional permanent residents who received an incorrect receipt notice and need to travel internationally or prove their continued status before they receive the corrected receipt notice may submit a case inquiry with USCIS to receive further instructions.
