Refiled I-90 - RFIE/RFE?

45 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hello. My initial Form I-90 was lost in the mail so I re-filed it on 5/1/19 using FedEx Express. USCIS did receive it on the morning of 5/3/19 according to the tracking #.

 

My lawyer recommended that I don't send the original Permanent Resident card so I sent the front/back copy photocopy. According to my lawyer, he says sometimes they ask for original and sometimes they don't. Anyone submitted I-90 with just the photocopy and did not get a RFIE/RFE? The reason for I-90 is DHS error on my year of birth so I submitted a copy of my Birth Certificate.

 

When should I be getting a receipt from USCIS?

According to USCIS, and the instructions plainly written, the original is required at the time of your application:

 

Item Number 2.d. My existing card has incorrect data because of Department of Homeland Security error. Select this reason if your card has incorrect data and the error was caused by DHS. Attach the original Permanent Resident Card issued with the incorrect data. A copy of the card is not acceptable in this case.

 

I would allow up to at least 3 weeks to receive the receipt notice (or more likely in your case, a RFE for the original card).

I know but my lawyer said only send in if I get a RFIE/RFE.

Your lawyer wasn't aware of the instructions on the form? 

Generally a new card won't be produced until USCIS has the old one in hand.   

 

If you end up getting a RFE, then you'll just have the i-90 delayed slightly.  Not the end of the world.

He was but initial mail was lost and he never sent in original GC. So I still don’t have to pay the fee either.

The fee is always waived for a green card correction due to DHS error.

The initial package being lost is irrelevant since USCIS never began processing the i-90 since it was never received by them...now, it depends on what the agent wants to do since they received your new package (send RFE or not).

OP ... According to your previous thread you said that the original green card was sent by the lawyer in the original package.. and that you had a copy of it .. what’s changed ? 

He posted near the end of that thread that the lawyer never submitted the original GC after all.

Begs the question where the original GC is, now, though?---presumably OP would have known whether it was in his own possession or not all along...

I thought he did. He then told me he didn’t which is good because I would have had to pay the fee. I have the original GC now.

My lawyer handed me over the original GC.
