rcvd mail from selective service

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Good morning. Yesterday my spouse recieved a letter in the mail from selective services and enclosed was a card on the tear off portion.

I brang my husband to the USA on a k1 visa and am confused as to why we received this? Has anyone else recieved such correspondence? My husband is freaking out and I dont know what to say. Can someone shed some light?

On the letter it states if he didn't register and is here on a active visa just send the letter back with the I-94 document. But im curious...

Thanks in advance

All male green card holders from age 18 to age 25 are required to register with the selective service. When he got his green card, the welcome letter would have explained this.

Caryh is right. My husband got the same thing. It's federal law to register and USCIS does it automatically. It doesn't mean he has to go to the military, but it's a good thing for other future reasons like financial aid or citizenship. Don't panic. :)

Not until he gets his green card, but since he's applied for it, it wouldn't hurt to get it out of the way so its not forgotten later.

If you filed the I-485, USCIS automatically sent your husband's info to Selective Service since he was between the ages of 18 and 25 when you sent it in. There is nothing else he needs to do. It says they will do this on the bottom of the form. They remind you to register when you get your gc, but that is only to make sure he registers if for some reason USCIS didn't send the info. But in your case, they registered him already. If he is under 25, he needs to carry the tear off portion with him.

Just go ahead and register. The risk that he will be drafted into the military is just about ZERO, as our military already has so many volunteers that they are actually turning volunteers away.
