Do you think I will have to do another Biometrics even though it was DHS error? I heard the Bio is valid for 1.5 years from the last one. Is that true?

I can’t say if they will take the existing one but my wife and others here had to complete new biometrics. Search I-90 here and you will see.

What was the reason for her filing for I-90?

So she filed as a DHS error? I heard that Biometrics are valid for 1.5 years as long as my receipt date for I-90 on or before 1.5 years? 

 

Also, did USCIS use the new picture that was taken at her biometrics? Are we allowed to retake if we don't like the picture?

Really depends on the person taking your biometrics. The person who helped my wife was nice and let her choose the picture but like I said it’s subjective to the Immigration Officer. I can’t say if they use the new picture because we have not received the replacement updated card yet so only time will tell. As far as the biometrics validity it depends on who is handling your case. For example we we required to do a new medical when we had our interview for the GC even through the medical was less then one year old - some ask some don’t. Just prepare to do everything over again and if you’re not ask then at least you prepared for the worst. I am not an expert by any means but this is what I and others have experienced. Just search these forums and you will see everyone’s experience is unique albeit some similarities.
