  • Just returned from getting an extension on my extension

    As previously posted, I had to drive to Charleston SC to have them give me an extension due to my GC expiring on the 5th of april. I got there right at opening (8am) and was seen by 8:30. Because I do not have a passport for them to stamp, I had to go get pictures taken to make a new card. The man really stressed the importance of passports, not only for immigration but for other forms of ID. Anyway, he directed me to a close place to take the pictures and I was to go back when I had them in hand. He told me I wouldn't have to wait in line again, just go straight up to the window. He asked me why I'd come so far and I told him the person I spoke to at the 800 number instructed me to as Charlotte did not do extensions. He said that I was misdirected, which worried me for a moment but we got our card anyway. It is a paper card, with something similar to a notary stamp on it, and handwritten by him, extended to 2005. He said it looked like Charlotte has my file, getting ready to contact me for an interview. So, I guess I'll start preparing I left Charleston at 11:30 am. Oh, the immigration officer told me the letter is not the date to which we go by, thankfully because mine was jan 21.
    I wanted to add that the folks at the Charleston SC office were very professional, helpful and patient with people, even those that just came up to the window. I watched 4 couples with *real* problems get results and walk out with a smile. If they did not have an answer, they went to the back and got someone who helped the people right away. I was impressed with them.
