Last month, I filled a petition, I-751, to remove conditions on my green card. I had my biometrics done yesterday. how long will it take to get new green card?I filled JOINTLY 751 petition. How long will it take? My name was wrong printed on green card,so i applied for name change, so in august 2014,i received my green card in two weeks after my biometrics. Is it gonna be same time period this time? the only difference is last time i applied I-90 for name change and time it is jointly 751.
What you forgot to mention was whether you filed the I-751 "jointly" or as as self-petition asking for a waiver of the joint filing requirement. Makes a big difference.
The ones filed jointly are being approved within less than 2 months, without necessitating an interview, at least that is my personal experience, whereas those filed as a waiver are taking approx. 9 months from time of filing be interviewed at the local district office.

My college is correct ... you left out super important information:
1. Did you file as married or divorced?
2. Did you submit a FULL 2-years of bills, bank statements AND tax returns?
3. Did you submit at-least 3 NOTARIZED affidavit from friends/family?

It usually takes about 6 months from day of filing to hear back from USCIS. If no additional information or an interview is required, you should receive the new card at that point.
