Be prepared for a really long wait. I-751 is the lowest priority for DHS. My receipt came in 2months later with a notice of 12month extension. Followed by another notice with 18month extension. I was eligible for naturalization while still waiting for I-751 to be processed. At naturalization interview officer had to pull in I-751 paperwork approve it first and then N-400. Sit back, paperwork will come. But don’t wait for naturalization. Apply the day u become eligible.

Thanks EY1. If I don’t get my I-751 receipt before my current green card expires, is that a problem?

Mine came just in time before conditional GC expired but still after 6weeks. AFAIK, u shud be ok. Keep copies of ur application & tracking number just in case. I wudn’t worry about falling out of status and having ICE at ur doorstep. Maybe HR wud ask.

Not asking this due to disappointing dates, but also because I see that as a filter on a lot of matrimony profiles.
