Effective as of September 4, 2021, United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) extended the time period from 18 month to 24 months for petitioners filing the Form I-752 and I-829 to use receipt notices as evidence of status. This extension is due to increased processing times for these petitions.
USCIS will issue new receipt notices for petitions filed before September 2, 2021 and whose cases are still pending. The newly issued receipt notices can serve as evidence of continued status for 24 months past the stated expiration on the Green Card.
