USCIS Extends Evidence of Status of Certain Receipt Notices

United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) will extend the time certain receipt notices can be presented as evidence of immigration status. Beginning on September 4, 2021, petitioners filing Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence or Form I-829, Petition by Investor to Remove Conditions on Permanent Resident Status can use receipt notices for 24 months, an increase from the previous 18-month limit. The change is part of USCIS’s efforts to combat the effects of processing delays.
