I applied to remove conditions on my green card five months ago. The only documentations I have received from USCIS are for biometrics to be take and one to let me know that my permanent residency has been automatically extended for a year. It has been five (5) months. Do I have cause to worry? Any ideas?
You don't need to worry, it takes around one year to get I-751 decided.
This answer does not constitute Attorney-client relationship.
Nearly all applications for immigration benefits have very long processing times, so the delay itself is not cause for a concern.
I agree. There may be delays due to the lack of sufficient examiners, the lack of enough verifiable evidence, or the need to interview.
There is no time limit for processing, so if the petition takes longer than 90 days from what the USCIS has estimated at USCIS.gov's Tools tab, then call the 800 number and speak with a USCIS Representative.
If that results in no further action, then consider scheduling an InfoPass Appointment at the local District Office. Some applicants have waited three or four years before contacting a competent and experienced immigration attorney. If it takes more than a year, you may want an attorney to investigate. Good luck.
