Just looking to get an appointment sooner than later. My Green Card has expired and need to get it renewed. I work in Cincinnati and that office has appointments so I was planning to go there. Thanks for any info.
Well. For those of us who work outside of Denver, most USCIS offices have no appointment. You can travel to any of the offices that offer an appointment. The practical usefulness of such appointment will be diminished since the one in Denver is your local field office.

Have you already filed the I-90 to renew your green card? You don't do that in person.
Perhaps you have already done that, and you're looking to get your passport stamped with a temporary I-551 stamp that you can use as proof of your status while waiting on the I-90 to be processed?
If that's the case, then here are a couple of tips:
1) The person in charge of coordinating InfoPass appointments at the Centennial USCIS field office releases appointments every Monday at 6:30 AM and they are usually all gone by 9 AM. So, try to log on immediately after 6:30 AM on a Monday morning to maximize your chances of getting an official appointment.
2) Emergency InfoPass appointments can be obtained by showing up at the office at 7AM. You just have to be prepared for: (a) the guard not finding your situation as dire as other people waiting for the same thing; (b) no available appointments that day; or (c) waiting a long time in the lobby for everyone with official appointments being handled first. It's not ideal, but we've had several clients who were able to eventually be seen by doing this.
Best of luck.
