Confusion with I-751s

Timeline

In July, 2005 I married a USC. It took almost a year to get my travel document and 2-year green card because they would not tell us that the mail lost a medical paper. I was threatened with being sent home to Canada, so I had to contact a senator. So then my children got their green card over two weeks after I did.

Now we applied for the lifting of conditions in March. Last week I received two letters for myself, extending the green card for a year while they process me. My name is Cornelia. One letter was addressed to Cormelia, and one was addressed to Comelia. The children then received their letters, on plain paper, on which their names were spelled correctly, but not mine.

Yesterday I received an appointment for biometrics, addressed to Comelia. Two of the children each received another letter, this one looking official, NOA1's, telling them to wait for biometrics appointments.

Do I need to inform them of the duplicate letters and misspelled name? If so, how do I do that?

Is there a way to get biometrics appointments for the children on the same day as mine? The office is several hours from here. I'm thinking the NOA1 for the third child is still on the way......I hope.

When you go to get your biometrics done they will have you go through the vital information that they have for you (and your children). You can make a correction then and ask them to make sure that the misspelled name is removed from the system.

They did the same thing to me. They put my maiden name on my NOA1 and misspelled my middle name. I called their info line and reported the error. They sent me a letter a couple weeks later to acknowledge my call and what it was for. Unfortunately the letter never indicated they had fixed the error just that the correct info had been passed on to an immigration officer.

This was all over a year ago now. It kinda sucked when I travelled and had to bring my extension letter with incorrect name and a copy of the letter that I had reported the mistake. Although I never had any problems getting back into the US.

My card was just approved today and I hope when I get it in the mail that they fixed the mistake especially since I am travelling in May. Fingers crossed!!!

If I were you I would give them a call to let them know. I did bring this up at my biometrics appointment but I really dont remember them doing anything. I think they just said I should call the info line. I imagine they had the correct info on me in their system at that time and maybe the NOA was just a data entry error???

You could bring your children with you( don't forget their bio. appt. letters, too) and ask to do theirs on the same day.

There is no harm to try to do it.

Good Luck :star:

No, the only person who has to be at the biometrics appointment is the person getting biometrics done. At our local office they actually discourage you from bringing anyone unless you are dependent on them for transportation or interpretation. Biometrics are painless:-). Good luck.


“...Isn't it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive--it's such an interesting world. It wouldn't be half so interesting if we knew all about everything, would it? There'd be no scope for imagination then, would there?”

My NOA for I-765 had a typo in my last name. The fingerprint lady corrected it on their system and said it should be fine. Fast forward 12 months during which no comminucation was received from USCIS.

When the letter notifying transfer to CSC came, the typo was still there :angry: USCIS (dis)service line advised making an appointment to go to my disctrict office to get the correction made. Was told the 800-line cannot do anything to correct this mistake. I was hoping the approval would wait for a couple of weeks because I have an appointment for next Monday. After all, it's been pending for 14 months. But, the petition was approved this week. I do not what name would show up on the card. As an aside, my 2-year card had no inaccuracies. If I do not receive the card by Saturday, I will cancel the appointment and wait for the card to arrive. I am bracing myself for a second trip to USCIS in two months, all because they cannot get their act together.

I would suggest making an appointment at the disctrict office to have this corrected even before you go for fingerprints.

Good Luck!
