Re: Any recent timeline experiences for I-751 processing letters?

Urgh - still no letter. Phoned USCIS on 2nd and they said a scheduler from my local office would contact me within 48-72 hours. ...turns out iPhones detect the schedulers number as a scam phone call,...

Re: Heindsight for the hasty! UK to USA (Mid-West)
