Green card renewal - biometric appointment schedule and location change possible?

Asked about 1 year ago - Naperville, IL

I just applied for green card renewal today (22-Mar-2013). My green card is expiring in Nov-2013. I'm going to be out of the country (to India) from next week till August. Somebody will check my postal mails while I'm gone and I'll be know about the application correspondence. I'm worried about biometrics appointment. Will be able to postpone or change location (in India) of biometrics?

    Answered . Follow the instructions on the appointment notice that you receive in order to reschedule. At the very least you should call the USCIS National Customer Service Center to get some guidance. The number is 1-800-375-5283. Good luck!
