Fatal mistake solution with my residence card

19 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

One interesting thing that I have the date of being resident since is different in my both old and new GC.  The old gc date is  02/28/2016 and the new gc date is 04/18/16 so which one I should pick to type in my n400 application? And should I contact USCIS about this mistake or no ? Anyone had similar experience?

Me. My resident since date on my second 10 year GC was incorrect and it nearly prevented me from becoming a USC because as the officer stated according to the later date I wouldn't be eligible for citizenship yet. 

 

She almost had me correct it with a I-90 form but thankfully she was convinced that my first two cards showed the correct date. 

 

I got the second 10 gear green card because I changed my name. 

 

When is your interview? If it's still a little bit I would file I-90. Make sure that the Part 1 question 15 date of admission has the correct resident since date.

I am going to apply for n400 today so idk what to do. I don't wanna delay my application more than that and I don't know what date should I put the old or the new gc. Also should i report that to the uscis or no?    Btw, in both dates I am still delighted apply for n400 since both dates make me inside the 90 days window or past it.

Please advise.  One interesting thing that I have the date of being" resident since"  is different in my both old and new GC.  The old gc date is  02/18/2016 and the new gc date is 04/18/16 so i will fill in a form electronically to correct it. But for now I am still eligible to apply for n400.  So should I submit my n400 including my old or new gc ? Or should I wait until I get the new card corrected first ? How long it will be ?  Anyone had similar experience?

Submit your N-400 with a copy of the old card since that’s accurate. They will still know you qualify either way once they do checks in the system as of the day you originally became a permanent resident. As for the I-90 submit a replacement green card. Since it’s uscis’s fault, you won’t be paying a dime for it. The sad thing is it will take several months for USCIS to re-issue another card. You’d think a simple mistake like this should be resolved easily but nope not with USCIS. You’ll be looking at a couple of months down the road for a replacement. Some peeps here have been even double whammed after waiting several months only to be issued another card again with a wrong date on it. Just hope you’re not one of those.

I called uscis and they submitted a typographical error request for me and I am going to wait until they contact me back first that's what she said.  And she couldn't advise on whether to file n400 with the old correct card or the new incorrect card. She advised me to ask a lawyer. WTH!   She wasn't helpful and they should be able to know and advise. 

 

So should i go ahead and sumbit 1-90 form now or should I wait until i hear back from the request she submitted ? It might fasten the process ? 

 

I think I will do as what you said. Apply with the old card. But doesn't that be considered expired in their eyes. Or is it better to sumbit the new incorrect one for now and send a proof to Seattle office with the replacement correct one once I receive it ?

I talked to a uscis office on the phone again and she advised to wait until I hear back from the request of error they submitted for me. They think it might not be an error in the first time which i doubt. Because "date of residence since "should be identical in all of my cards, correct ?

 

Also she advised to submit the two gc old and new in my n400 application and sumbit an attachment explaining the dates discrepancy. 

 

They couldn't give me indefinite answers but just recommendation. 

 

 

What do you think of that Starkilla?

Correct! The resident since date of the new green card 10 year card should match that of the old 2 year one. The most feedback you’ll get about it and only way to do fix this problem is to file a form I-90. You can still go ahead and file the N-400 with both copies of cards and write about discrepancies. The green card copies are just do check preliminary that you’re a permanent resident and eligible to file as of that date. It doesn’t affect your N 400 application in any negative way. Once they accept your N-400 application the rest doesn’t matter and it will only be at Interview stage again that they will need to see that resident card. The good news is with the current backlog in Seattle taking at least 13 months on average, you must’ve had your correct card by then to take with you to your interview.

Awesome. Thanks for the relief.  One very important thing to me as I have travel plans in March, you think it will be okay to fly internationally with the new incorrect green card with no problem since the date of expiry is 2029 ? Or should I wait until I fix the error and get the replacement first before I travel ?

Chances are you will be required to send that incorrect green card once you file your I-90 after which you should schedule an info pass appointment to the USCIS field office for a temporary I-551 stamp on your passport. You can use this stamp for you travel and work as required.

Is it possible and would they allow me to do n400 prtometric and info pass appointment in the same day in I did walk in at Seattle office ?  Assuming I'll get info pass stamp while I still have the incorrect gc.

I would pick the older one, but include a note of explanation with copies of both cards, along with documentation of yourbattempt to fix it.

 

You're within the 90 days window prior to applyong for citizenship, so I think you can apply.
