Incorrect middle name on Greencard

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I got my 2 years Permanent Resident Card today but unfortunately my middle name is incorrect, they put my birth certificate middle name instead of my married middle name. I filled out my I-485 forms with my married name...i just confused now because when i got all my USCIS notice, biometrics, EAD combo card has my married middle name on it. For example my Birth certificate name : Rose Santos Gomez

Married name : Rose Gomez Smith .... which is i used of all my documents now, like SSN, EAD, Insurance,

renew Passport

Green card : Rose Santos Smith

Honestly, so frustrating! i thought we done all of this paper work. Does anyone on the same situation? What should i do now? Please any suggestion?

Thanks,

Rose

From what I understand, your best course is to try no correct it when you file for the ROC. Of course, this will be in two years (minus 90 days), but I hear changing it now is very difficult.

Hopefully someone else has a better suggestion.

Good luck!

It's USCIS fault so they will change and correct the GC for free. Just file an i90.

Can go the I90 route and it's free. My wife's GC had the wrong Resident Since which could have potentially screwed up our ROC. We sent the card back and it took 9 months and 2 551 stamps so we could travel internationally. And, as Pitaya points, it happens a lot in fact, they got the "Resident Since" date wrong on the 10 yr card after our ROC too!

Hi thanks for your response.

For our first stamp we made an InfoPass appointment and explained our situation. The only available appointment was 2.5 hours away. Then, they would only give us a six month stamp because the lady said I90 only takes 3-4 months (I knew this to be wrong but wasn't going to argue). For the second stamp we got an appointment close to home because based on the wrong date the GC was expiring the next day. The lady gave us 9 months at that time. I would get the 551 stamp BEFORE sending in your card.
