Here is the latest on AOS (I-751) processing dates at the 4 NSC's:

*Texas is working applications submitted on October 30, 2003 - so they are 14 months behind.
* California is working applications submitted on May 20, 2004 - so they are only 7 months behind.
* Nebraska (the NSC I work with) is working on applications submitted July 10, 2003 - so they are 17 months behind.
* Vermont is working applications submitted July 1, 2004 - so they are only 5 months behind.

As usual, Nebraska sucks hind teat.

FWIW,

Which process is the I-751?  Is that the interview process for all Americans that married overseas?

Dave,

The I-751 is a petition to remove conditions on residence. When a marriage-based immigrant is first granted permanent residency, whether married in the U.S. or overseas, the initial green card will be conditional for two years if the marriage is less that two years old. At the end of the two years, the alien and the spouse must file a Form I-751.

The purpose of the conditional residency is to help weed out fraudulent marriages. You must submit evidence of a valid marriage with the I-751 and a face-to-face interview is optional and at the discretion of the immigration officer adjudicating your case.

A common I-751 follow-up question many people ask is:
what if we are separated or divorced in less than
24 months or the period of conditional residency?

What is her immigration status? Can she stay in
the US?

In general, the lady spouse has available a
method to stay in the US by filing on her own
the I-751 based on "valid divorce" following
"good faith" marriage. This is one of the
exceptions to the "joint filing" requirement
of the I-751.

Immigration Service just released a Flash Memo
dated 12/27/04 to further clarify this issue,
under different scenarios.

1. If the couple is OFFICIALLY DIVORCED at time of
I-751 filing, then the lady spouse files the
I-751 with fee and marks "d" in Part 2.

2. If the couple has filed a PENDING JOINT I-751
but SEPARATE BEFORE the I-751 is decided, the
lady spouse should notify the Service Center by letter
that she is separated, and Service Center will re-locate
case to local district office for interview.

3. If the couple become OFFICIALLY DIVORCED
while the joint I-751 is pending, the lady spouse
should file a new I-751 with fee and mark "d" in Part 2,
and also request withdrawal of first petition.

4. If the couple are SEPARATED BUT NOT YET
OFFICIALLY DIVORCED at the time I-751 is
to be filed, the lady spouse should mark "d"
on Part 2 of the petition and Service Center
will re-locate case to local district office for
interview.

5. If the couple are SEPARATED AT TIME OF
FILING THE I-751 AS ABOVE AND THE DIVORCE
BECOMES FINAL WHILE I-751 IS STILL PENDING,
the lady spouse should file a new I-751 with fee
marking "d" in Part 2, and request withdrawal of
first petition.

Naturally, all supporting documentation concerning
identity and to show "valid divorce" and "good faith" marriage
must accompany the petition.

Hope that helps.
Good luck to all.

our notice today that they have been approved for their 10 yr green cards. It said just bring their passports and 3 pictures and gave us a web site to make the appointment. We filed the paperwork on July 7th and two weeks later we got a reciept notice saying that it would take a year to process. Guess they were wrong on the short side for the 1st time in their history. And the wife is pretty darn happy about it.
