Wink I-751......6 weeks and still waiting.

Hi Everyone,

After receiving my Conditional Permanent Residency in April 2005 I have been "resting" before the next stage of this wonderful process.

And as unusual I didn't quite get off to the start I would have liked. You could say I've been left at the post.

I posted my I-751 application on 9th February to the Vermont Service Center and they received it 12th February. I have been waiting and waiting. Our cheque has not been cashed and I haven't received any notice.

I decided today to bite the bullet and call the infamous 1 800 number. After navigating through even more options than 2 years ago I did finally get to speak to a real live person. First of all he said this is unusual and then he kinda contradicted himself and said it's early yet and just to keep checking with my bank. He then said when the cheque is cashed to request a copy of it and get the application reference number from it and to call them back! I did keep going with him and asked him what to do if the check isn't cashed and I never got a straight answer on that one so I gave up (for today).

I am concerned because money orders and cheques do tend to get cashed fairly quickly.

I would appreciate any thoughts from anybody on my next move.

As a footnote.....Just to add a bit of confusion. I am one of these "lucky" people who were given a 10 year Green Card instead of the 2 year one I should have received.

I hope everyone is well and I wish everyone smooth and swift processing. If only................

Take care

Sue

I'd make an Infopass appointment if I were you. Our check was cashed two days after it arrived at VSC. Just because they then screwed up our case by entering our address wrong - at least they had the money - they do have priorities - so it appears very strange that they didn't cash your check. Did you send your file via FedEx so that you could track it?

Hi,

Thanks, I think we will have to go for infopass. It's all very strange. They usually want your money.

I sent it by USPS and had it tracked by them. It was signed for on February 12 at 2 50 PM.

And yes I was kidding about this wonderful process.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Sue
