NOA2 will be mailed to you in next 2 to 4 week to provide you date and place for a biometric appointment where you will have photo and fingerprint taken.

If your application for renewing your green card is denied, you will receive a letter that will tell you why the application was denied. You will not be allowed to appeal a negative decision. However, you may submit a motion to reopen or a motion to reconsider with the same office that made the unfavorable decision.
