What if you sent in an I-90 instead of a I-751?

OK, so a friend of ours has her 2 year anniversary approaching for removing the conditional status of her permanent residence. Apparently, she filed an I-90 instead of an I-751. She just received a letter stating that her application for renewal was denied, which is understandable. The appeal states that her application was rejected because her condition status had not been removed. Obviously, it was the I-751 that she was supposed to submit.

However, the letter tells her that she must file an I-290B, (Notice of Appeal or Motion) *in addition to* the I-751 that she needs to submit.

To me, this is ridiculous. In my opinion, she should just simply file the I-751, and ignore the appeal. After all, how does it make any sense to appeal a decision that wrongfully applied for, and that she doesn't quarrel with anyway.

It makes a big difference. She's already paying $545 (plus $80 for biometrics). But the I-290B is an additional $585! And to add insult to injury, the USCIS cashed the original $370 for the I-90, and I'm guessing she may not be able to get that money back.

This whole thing looks like nothing more than a big shakedown. Please advise...

This all standard/canned response(s) - doesn't apply in your friend's case. Just needs to file the I-751 like he/she was supposed to. :thumbs:

She needs to file the I-751 before her green card expiry date as well. She is lucky she discovered that the I-90 was not correct before her green card actually expired.
