Greencard "Resident Since" date is wrong, flight to go home in november.

25 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi!

I received my GC today and everythings good besides the fields "Resident Since" and "Card expires" Both are 1 year behind pretty much. Now, foolishly, I have a flight scheduled on november 7th, but when i sent an e-request on the USCIS site they told me to expect a reply by october 21 (!!!!)...

 

Now i dont know if i shot myself in the foot... like, will i have to return my greencard and just wait for the new one? Will i be able to still travel home and back?

So the resident since date doesn't match your POE entry date? Have you filed I-90 already? 

My resident date should be 09/20/2018, instead it says 2017.

 

No, I didnt file the I-90 yet! Honestly i was thinking of doing that after i come back from my trip (since ill be gone home for 2 months starting november)...

Wait, through which means did you obtain your green card (e.g. marriage, employment etc..)? People applying for AOS through certain means have their green cards date backdated.

 

I know that Asylees, for example, who do an AOS get their "resident since" date backdated 1 year. So if they received their green card on XX/XX/2020 for example, their green cards show XX/XX/2019 as the date their green cards was issued. So their actual waiting time is 4 years instead of the 5 their green cards show.

That's what i figured as well yeah.

 

Do you have any idea how long would it take to file an I-90, and get back the card? Because I'm really tempted to just hold on to this one until I come back from my trip (its been years since i visited and plane is already set for november 7 and all)... Like it's not something glaring like my name or anything

Assuming you're referring to the "resident since" date on the green card, which is presumably what OP is also referring to, this date is backdated in certain cases such as asylum. As some of their time as asylees is counted towards their LPR time. It isn't always necessarily the approval-date of the AOS. I know an asylee, and their approved GC's residence-since and other documents were back-dated 1 year upon approval as per the law.

 

If OP received his GC through marriage, then yeah it may be a mistake.

You can file I-90 online and wait for RFE to tell you to mail in the card or you can wait until you’re back from your trip to send in paper I-90 with wrong gc enclosed (make several color copies of front and back GC). 

 

If you haven’t already, update your ssn to remove the valid for work with DHS authorization only before you send in your current/wrong GC in. Will make it easier to just use SSA card and DL for proof of employment on I-9.

Alright. What I am going to do it's probably going to call them to tell them to cancel my e-request (I sent a support request via the Uscis.gov site about something wrong on my card -_- like an idiot.), that I will mail the I-90 with my card, and do it after i come back from my trip.

 

Think that should work out?

Like... my main worry is that having submitted an e-request it will prompt me to "skip" the I-90. If all i get as a response from that is "Please file an I-90", then there would be no issues. But they gave me the estimated date of october 21 as a response to it 😕

The I90 is taking 7 +minths to process. We are dealing with the rich now on issues. File the I90 once you get receipt number get your senator involved they can help expedite the issuance of the replacement card.
