Hello my name is ***** ***** I am delighted to answer your questions today. I have 35 years experience as an immigration lawyer.

Did you file your N-400 at least 6 months in advance of your GC expiring?

If you did, then when you had your biometrics done the application support center should hae put a sticker on your I-551 extending it for a year.

Filing the I-90 does not affect your pending N-400, nor does the pending N-400 accept your ability to file the I-90 but you could save yourself some money if you filed at least 6 months before your GC expired.

You can make an InfoPass appointment and take the N-400 I-797 fee receipt and ask them to put a temporary I-551 stemp in your passport just before the I-551 expires.

Of course, I am sure you understand your positive rating is very important to me as we are not on salary and that is how we receive compensation, you choosing a smiley face or 3+ stars
