Wrong date on the green card

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello, Everyone!

 

I got my conditional green card today and I noticed that my “Resident Since” date is incorrect. As far as I know it should be the date my I-485 got approved but instead it is the date USCIS got my I-485 application which was more than a year ago (Aug 17, 2017). Not only that but my expiration date is incorrect as well. It is Aug 17, 2019 which is one year sooner than it should be. I did wait a pretty long time to get my green card, I waited for 1 year and 2 months to get my interview. I’m not sure if that matters in any way but I just wanted to mention it anyways. What should I do? Should I apply to get it corrected? If so, how long will it take and will I be able to keep my green card while waiting? 

 

Thank you so much!

yeah, definitely have it corrected, as far a looking for a job or more, if you don't already have one...keep records of it (photocopies) of the wrong issued GC and do an infopass to see what needs to be done. You are now a LPR and by so a mistaken ID/ GC does not prevent you from being fired or not getting hired. Traveling might be a different story.

Thank you so much! 

You should definitely get it corrected because I have read about a lot of people having problems when applying for citizenship when the date is wrong on their greencards

File for i 90 form stating that its a USCIS mistake. It will take 6 months to a year to get a new card but it will be free of charge. Also get a green card stamp on passport once you recieve i 90 reciept so you can prove your status. Good luck.

Once you get a i 90 receipt, schedule an appt at local uscis office, they will give you stamp for one year.

Thank you so much for all the help! I also wanted to ask if it will be possible for me to get my driver’s license while I’m waiting for the card to arrive? I’m in the process of moving out of state and I’m gonna have to renew my license in a couple of months so I’m worried that I might have issues with that. Will the stamp in my passport be enough for DMV? Also will I be able to get a job and a bank account while waiting? It’s just so frustrating considering the fact that we waited for more than a year to get this green card...

 

thank you so much!
