    Shouldn''t affect it. You should be able to get it as normal.

    It won''t. They are processing old and new I-829 files.

    Obtaining a temporary green card stamp because your I-829 is pending beyond the 18-month period is not at all impacted by the current lapse.

    USCIS has explicitly mentioned that I-829 adjudication is not affected.

    You may still file it but it won''t be acted on until reauthorization.
