Mispelled Name on Green Card

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone.  I know I'm repeating the same problem many people wrote before, and I do appologize in advance...I've read many previous posts before about individuals having mispelled names on their green cards, so I am aware of the I-90 forms to fill out in order to replace, but I did just want to ask questions anyways.  

So for my step-son, his middle name is "Yutaka" but it shows as "Yutak" on his GC.  I am due to travel overeas to my next duty station in December, would this possibly be an issue? I am worried about possibly not receiving the corrected GC on time.  

Also, we do plan on driving into Canada during the summer at some point for a family trip, but will border agents on either side (Canada/U.S.)  give is a hard time about this?  Should we take the risk? 

 

I will be honest and say that I did notice the mispelled name on his NOA1, but I failed to get it corrected during biometrics appointment, or even corrected during the interview, so will this be a problem trying to get the fees waived for the I-90 application? 

I'm tempted to call USCIS directly and ask, but wanted to get info from here first.  Thank you!

Check your applications, if you have put his middle name as shown on GC, you need to pay for the replacement. If the name was correct in the application forms, you don’t need to pay.

 

At some point, you have to mail his original GC to USCIS. Best is file for i-90, get the NOA1 and get i551 stamp on the passport and use the stamp for travel.

My given name in my old gc was "First Name Middle Initial" even though my given name on my passport was written as "First Name Middle Name". No problem with immigration. It's probably for lack of space that they shortened your step son's middle name.

That's what I was thinking, since his full legal name is actually 7 names in one, yes 7, so thats why I was thinking that could be a possiblility

I even have to shorten his name in airline tickets since his full first name doesn't fot on the forms at all.
