Hey there. Don't worry, we all make mistakes.

They'll send out an RFE (Request for Evidence) for it when they come around to reviewing your package. Don't send anything before you get the RFE because it has a low chance of being attached to your file without that RFE cover sheet.


ROC from CR-1 visa (Green Card expiration date was Nov 24th 2016)

 

Link to the evidence I submitted. Be sure to send evidence spanning your entire marriage (especially for K-1) or as far back as you can. Just one or two bank statements will not cut it. I primarily focused on the two years of living here since I came in on a CR-1. If you don't have the fundamentals (i.e. joint accounts/policies), you can explain why in the covering letter. E.g. "While we do not have joint utilities, we both contribute to them from our joint bank account".

 

September 26th 2016: I-751 package sent to CSC

September 28th 2016: Package delivered
September 30th 2016: Check cashed
October 3rd 2016: NOA1 received with receipt date of 09/28/16
November 3rd 2016: Biometrics received with appointment date of 11/14/16.
November 14th 2016: Attended biometrics appointment
October 30th 2017: Infopass appointment to get I-551 stamp
February 26th 2018: I-751 case number (aka the NOA1 receipt number) becomes trackable
March 14th 2018: Submitted service request due to being outside of processing time.

March 15th 2018: ROC approved. 535 days (1 year, 5 months and 17 days)

March 29th 2018: Card being produced

April 4th 2018: Card mailed out

April 6th 2018: Card in hand. Has incorrect "resident since" date. Submitted service request on I-751 case (typographical error on permanent resident card) and an I-90 online.

April 2018 - August 7th 2018: Tons of service requests, emails and now senator involvement to get my corrected green card back because what the heck, USCIS. Also some time in May I sent a letter to Potomac telling them I want to withdraw my I-90 since CSC were handling it.

August 8th 2018: Card in production thanks to the direct involvement of Senator Sherrod Brown's team

August 13th 2018: Card mailed

August 15th 2018: Card in hand with correct date. :joy:

October 31st 2018: Potomac sends out a notice stating they have closed out my I-90 per my request. Yay for no duplicate card drama.

You should call them (USCIS) and maybe send it with a letter explained what happened.

Getting an RFE will delay the process for about 2-3 weeks.

waste of time.

even with the receipt number in the casefile, the new letter has to wind it's way through the service center. Then no one us going to chase through the stacks in the warehouse, to find the one casefile out if tens of thousands..

you've written a nice idea, but it won't work that way.

instead, the op will have to wait for the rfe, up to 9 months later as the fifo queue moves along.

the best that the op can hope for is the first level screeners note the ommision in the first three weeks, and send it bcack quickly to the op. Marriage cert is a major document, basis of eligibility.
