What happens with my status since my I-829 receipt expires soon and I am unable to schedule an info pass appointment?

My I-829, 18 month receipt is expiring on September 1. I’ve been trying to schedule an info-pass appointment for a temporary stamp, but it’s impossible. USCIS keeps saying they will call me to schedule an appointment but they never call me. My question is if I can not get an appointment before the September 1 deadline, will I remain in status?

    You do not need the receipt to prove you are a permanent resident. You are a permanent resident until an Immigration Judge determines your residence has expired. An American does not stop being an American because their passport expired, and similar here.

    Keep trying - yes, you still have the status, but not evidence of the status.

    You will. You must have an attorney on this case. Please ask him or her to help you to understand where you stand as far as your priority dates.

    Your I-829 pending status will not be affected and it will not affect your I-829 adjudication. You just won''t have the proper document proof of your green card status.

    Even though the 18-month auto extension document is going to expire, you still are a conditional lawful permanent resident for immigration related purposes.

    Yes, you will remain in CPR status but be unable to travel internationally until you obtain a new stamp. Your employer may require you to provide an updated stamp as well as proof of employment authorization.
