Returned card because of invalid date, still waiting!

10 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, everyone, 

 

I need help, please. I got my green card in September last year, but unfortunately, they put a wrong date of expiration. 

I didn't return it right away because we had a trip scheduled to the Czech Republic for December and I needed it to come back. 

 

I returned it in February/March. In July we moved to a different state (so I had to change the address) and now I have to apply for a new driver's license and everything, but I can't because I'm still waiting for the new card! (They told me they can't give me a new driver's license without my green card)

 

Can't believe I'm still waiting, all they had to do is to switch the date! :angry: My online status still says "biometrics appointment", which I had in June! 

 

How long does it take? Anyone in the same situation? This is getting so frustrating all over again.. 

 

Thank you!

Yes, they can a year or over which is utterly disgusting. I would inform my congressman, they should know, perhaps they would care enough

to put some pressure on this ridiculous mess. I just can't even grasp the logic of this time table to fix a little plastic card that they messed up
in the first place. I would be furious.
