Q: 

I filed I-751 (kind of) late. How long does it take?

A:  If you are lucky you might get a receipt from your Service Center in a week stating that they accepted your application. The same paper will also say that your current green card is extended for a year, travel and work authorized. So, even if you''re not that lucky you should be fine by Sep :) Originally posted by ChubCheek Hello Group, I just got a chance to send out a package to file for an extension to my greencard (remove conditon). My greencard expires in September...very first week of September :( Within 1 month, will I get some sort of confirmation or replacement card to show my employee that my greencard will be renewed? I wonder how long does it take to get a new one and how long will it last this time. I...

Q: 

Applying for australian citizen certificate how long does it take and can they do it urgently?

A:  Your passport is your proof of Australian Citizenship. If you have one, it shows that you are an Australian Citizen. I am sure in Australia, you can get your passport within 2-3 days under by paying a premium fee. If you''re already an Australian citizen, just apply directly for an Australian passport and they can be had very quickly if you apply in person. You will need whatever documentation proves you''re a citizen e.g. your birth certificate and your Australian parent''s birth certificate if that''s how you''ve acquired your citizenship. A passport is always as good if not better than a certificate. https://www.passports.gov.au/Web/PriorityProcFee.aspx...

Q: 

How long does the process take to adopt a baby in the US?

A:  It takes about 1-3 months to do your homestudy depending on the agency and how fast you get all your paper work in. Than once your homestudy is done and you have a profile set up you generally go on a waiting list and just wait for a birthparent to choose you. How long you wait can vary any where from a few weeks to a few years. The agency we are working with the average wait is a year. Your wait time will depend on if you are open to any race, gender, special needs, drugs and alcohol during pregnancy, and if you are able to pay any amount of fees. Since the birthparent generally gets to choose the adoptive parents for their child you''ll have better luck if you are in a good position to adopt, if you are poor, young, unmarried, and unsuccessful your chances...

Q: 

Is it possible to quit a job and still attain unemployment Insurance?

A:  Is it possible to quit a job and still attain unemployment Insurance? YES but it is very difficult to do. you must prove you had ''good cause'' to quit, that the cause was not your fault, that you did everything reasonable to not quit, and that any other person would quit under the same circumstances. are the reasons you have listed good cause to quit? NO!!!!!!!! Nope. Unemployment office calls to verify the conditions on which you left your job. They will only approve benefits if you were ''let go''. That means laid off by your company. they will deny benefits if you quit of your own volition and also if you were ''fired'' because of something you did wrong.
