Potential mistake on new green card

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

So my mother went to her biometrics appointment today, and when they asked her for her first name, she said her last name because her English isn't that good. She did show them her green card and ID card though. I called USCIS and the representative said that she could not change it. Do you think that this will be okay? I am going for my biometrics appointment next Tuesday, maybe I can ask them?

I can go on USCIS and submit a typo error, but I'm not sure if it's necessary yet.

Exactly. You are making way too much of this. She filled out a form with the name to be used on the GC. USCIS should use the name on the form as they checked that and have done the FBI background check on that name. The ASC is just a place where they do photos and finger printing. I bet the do not care about the name, but rather a processing number. Also, I would like to think that any reasonable person seeing the last name in the first name spot will realize that the name is backwards.

Wait until her GC is received before you panic. This process is too stressful already without causing yourself more grief.

Both my wife's GC's had her listed as a Male, I tried to have it corrected but no one was interested in fixing it so we didn't pursue it. In case of confusion you could always explain that Chinese family names are first names and the given name is the last name. I think no problem!
