Hi guys,


I have some questions/concerns that some of you might be able to help me with..


My husband came to the States on a k-1 visa. When we got married we applied for his greencard. The greencard was processed quicker than expected. However, it came with a typo on his first name. Instead of Mustafa they typed Hustafa :( and so the issues began. He can't obviously get a SS# or a job. We filed for I-90 as it was a  typographical error by USCIS and few weeks later they sent us a notice to go and do the biometrics again. We did and at the biomotrics office they gave him the original greencard back (we thought they'd keep it). SO far nothing from USCIS and its been a month. I just want to know how long does this usually take. few months? a year? If this has happened to anyone? I know all we can do is wait but can I contact anyone? I am just really confused. 

any advice?

You should book an info pass for your local office to get an I-551 stamp. That will serve as proof of residency for a while. 

You can take the chance during that appointment to inquire regarding the new card.

Expect around a year for i90 processing.
