Name Spelled Wrong on Green Card - Help!

4 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Filed: K-1 Visa Country: United Kingdom

My wife just received her green card, FINALLY, and her name is wrong.

It's supposed to be...

First Name: Jessica

Middle Name: Mae Metcalf

Last Name: Klein

but they put on her card...

First Name: Jessica

Middle Name: Mae

Last Name: Metcalf Klein

We double checked that we did it correctly on her Form I-485 so the error is on USCIS.

What do we do?? All I've seen is that we can do a Form I-90 which is costly and takes months! That is an awful alternatively seeing as we thought we were finally done with this process until she has to apply for removal of conditions.

Can't get an info pass appointment at USCIS, ever, because we live in Los Angeles and it's basically booked forever. We are thinking of going in early one morning (one field office does 7am visits without appts once a week)

Any advice?

I am not sure that the GC allows for 2 middle names. The only option is the I-90, but she will still be a LPR and can get a stamp in her passport to prove it, so it shouldn't impact you too much. If the GC can't have two middle names then it'd just come back the same anyway. Good luck.

If they made an error, then you don't pay for a replacement. I'm with Harpa. I don't think they allow two middle names so if her birth certificate says Mae, then greencard will say Mae. "Computer say no". (Little Britain skit)

A double last name or hyphenated last name is allowed.
