Incorrect date on Green Card

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have a funky situation on my hands.

I have recently been looking in to becoming a US citizen (I will be a legal resident for 3 years, based on marriage to my US spouse in January) and found an inaccuracy on my current Green Card.

It states that I have been a legal resident since January 13th of 2013 where in reality I have only been a legal resident since January 13th of 2014.

I know it's silly that I just now came to realize this inaccuracy but I was wondering if this will give me issues if and when I decide to file the paperwork to become a US citizen.

Has anyone ever had this issue come up before? I can't believe I didn't catch it until this morning but now I'm slightly worried about it becoming a problem in the future.

Any input is appreciated!

That was a def typo! USCIS does have your A-file that has all your complete immigration records! Just remember to type or print the correct dates on the forms you fill out when you file for citizenship! All your info will be checked several times during the process and they should see that error too! I wouldn't worry too much about it. Be glad you noticed it! Good luck to you.

Hi DutchLPR,

Me same case for you until I need to withdraw my citizenship application, My case is the green card show resident since: 05/24/11 and then I just follow the green card day to apply my citizenship, until I go to interview the IOE said I filling too early due to my I485 form the date is 2012 instead of 2011. The IOE said make the wrong for the green card day they put the I130 apply date put wrong in the green card. and then I crazy mad said I just follow your green card to count 3 year how come sudden said you count the date should be follow the form instead the green card. Also they put the wrong date to me not me put the wrong day for the card. So the IOE said she need check with the supervise. But they said I still early to apply 4 month, hell no. So they request me write the letter withdraw the case. Then I nothing can do and I pay the $700 is gone.

So I guess you need to double check with your form when you apply, don't trust any green card day. follow the form date to apply the citizenship.

Good Luck!!!!!
