You may wish to book an InfoPass appointment at your local immigration office and asks for a biometrics appointment.
If no InfoPass appointments available then attend the biometrics with your receipt and the emergency documents and speak to the Supervisor.
Biometrics centers often allow walkins ahead of official apointment. An I551 temp stamp without biometrics may be possible. Both would need the I-90 receipt.
Is my answer "BEST ANSWER" and/or "HELPFUL"? If so, please acknowledge and mark it so. Mr. Smith has 25 years of successful U.S. immigration law experience with cases just like yours. Still, his response is general in nature, as all the facts are unknown to him, and cannot be construed as legal advice. Please retain immigration counsel to analyze your particular situation in order to receive specific advice. Specific answers requires knowledge of all the pertinent facts of your case. Any answers offered by Mr. Smith on Avvo are of a general nature only, and does not create an attorney-client relationship.
The biometrics appointment notices are being issued about a week after filing I-90 (paper). I don't know when your green card expires/expired or how much time do you have left before the funeral, but it's getting more difficult to get an InfoPass on an urgent basis (without an online appointment). You could certainly try to convince this is urgent.
While you try to get any InfoPass appointment you can grab in the next week or so (as it's hard to get it these days), you may want to wait for the notice and walk-in to ASC earlier (they are usually flexible) to complete the biometrics AND get a temporary extension sticker on the back. If you have the sticker, you don't need a temp I-551 stamp.
