3 months in the US and still no green card

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I've called USCIS and put in a service request twice. I've never gotten a welcome letter nor the GC.

USCIS claims they sent it but it was returned by the Post Office as undeliverable. The first time they sent it I think they got the zipcode a bit wrong. But I gave them the correct address TWICE after what and both times the mail has not reached me.

When I call them they say they cannot tell me what address they keep sending it to because "the system won't let them access this information". I ask to speak to a supervisor but the they supposedly can't access this information either.

They say there is no other way for me to receive my GC. I would literally fly to Texas and pick it up in person but this is not allowed. Oh yes, TSC is taking care of this. Or not.

What can I do? I'm lost. How many times can I go through the same process over and over? Isn't there anything I can do about it?

Call back, get a Tier 2, ISO Human

then

confirm the address with them (again)

and ask them to RESEND all of the stuff that was returned to them, to you. They can't tell you what address they used for prior mail, but they can resend to the address you give them, over the phone.

then (this is the important bit)

make a name card with the TWO NAMES on it, and paste it:

--inside the letter box front wall

--inside the letter box bottom floor

--inside the letter box back wall

and then make 3 batches of brownies - meet with YOUR POSTAL CARRIER 3 times over a week, say your name slowly to him, smile, be demure, give a plate of brownies. He'll remember you over the next 30 days as yer stuff is being resent.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !
Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.

I would suggest you put your name and your husband's name in your mail box which is visible to the mail man. Some mail man won't put the mail in your mail box especially when they are unsure even if your address is correct. It happened to my SS card. They returned the mail when in fact we provided the correct address due to the fact that the mail man isn't sure if it's the right mail box. We knew it when we went to the closest SS Office in our place. They advised to put our names on the mail box. I guess you would do the same.

When I applied for my SSN, I was told to tell the mailman that I'm going to be receiving it in the mail or to call the post office and let them know. This avoids having it sent back; this was for my SSN, I don't know if it applies to your green card but it might be the same thing. In my case, I left a note for the mailman in the mailbox telling him I will be receiving it and for him to leave it in our mailbox, and I got it.

If you are consequently receiving mails, I bet you don't need to leave a note for the mailman. But on the safe zone, putting name on the mail box is the easiest and simplest way to avoid returning mails to the sender. The US government is very strict in delivering mails in terms of cards or the like.

I spoke to my mailman in person. And I paid a visit to my Post Office. They know my name as both me and hubby have been getting mail here for a few months now. We live in a house and I see my mailman out on the sidewalk every day so he remembers me quite well.

Thanks for your advice. Hopefully they'll get it right next time.

The US government is very strict in delivering mails in terms of cards or the like.

We constantly received mail, that's not the issue. The issue is that the cards are crucial and have to do with identity which is why I was instructed to let the mailman know so it's not returned.

Good luck OP, I hope you get it soon :)
