My I90 Experience - CR1 to IR1

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to share this for the benefit of those who may need to do this:

 

-I entered the US one day after my second wedding anniversary

-The CBP officer asked about our wedding date and then stamped my passport with IR1 

-When I received my green card in the mail 3 months after entering the US, it said "CR1" with an expiry date in 2 years

-I filed the I90 online within a week of receiving the CR1 green card

-I selected USCIS error as my reason for submitting the I90 and did not have to pay anything

-In a few days, I was scheduled a biometric appointment

-I had to reschedule my appointment and that went smoothly

-A week after I attended the biometric appointment, I received a mail from USCIS asking for my original green card in the mail (to be sent within 87 days)

-I was traveling in a month's time so I didn't send it in right away

-I mailed my original green card after I returned from my trip. I also included a copy of my marriage certificate and a copy of my passport with the IR1 stamp.

-I received my new IR1 green card in two weeks

Thanks for sharing. You got your replacement GC in 2 weeks?? Wow...lucky you!

 

My husband and I filed an I-90 to fix an error in his name. See our timeline for the I-90:

 

I-90 GC Replacment (for Erroneous GC)

22-Jul-2017: GC arrives in the mail – middle name is cut off 😕

01-Aug-2017: Sent in I-90 online via website

05-Aug-2017: Biometrics scheduled

23-Aug-2017: Biometrics done @ USCIS office; kept GC!

16-Jul-2018: RFE for supporting docs!! D:<

31-Jul-2018: USCIS Appointment at local field office..

22-Aug-2018: Mailed GC back to USCIS in response to RFE

29-Aug-2018: GC received by USCIS

17-Sept-2018: Received CORRECTED GC in the mail! Finally!!

 

No idea why ours took so long! For some bizarre reason the USCIS officer here told my husband he could keep his GC during the process, then we ended up getting an RFE almost a year later saying they need him to send in the GC... :bonk:

maybe their processing time got better in 2018 :D 

by the way, what do you mean by the middle name was cut off? on my GC, i only have the initial of my middle name. should the full name be spelled out? hope i don't have to return it again.

Oh no, the middle initial is actually the correct way so you've got it right on your GC. :thumbs:

 

What I am talking about was basically the first name and middle name were listed together under "first name" and there wasn't enough space for it, so it ended up getting cut off on the end.
