Hello everyone, I write this post with much frustration. Weeks ago my wife contacted TransUnion and they agreed to send her a letter stating she doesn’t have a credit score (for I-944). 10 days later, the letter misspells her first name. At this point, we are upset but we try calling again to have this fixed and resent. The woman understands our issue and claims to have fixed it. 10 days later, the new letter has her first name misspelled yet again in the same way it was misspelled originally (it’s one of the most common names in the US so this was particularly frustrating). We are at a loss. We can’t keep waiting to send our AOS packet off, it’s making us both go gray! :’( Any advice would be much appreciated. My wife came on a K1 and has a social security number already and has had one for over 6 months. Thanks so soooo much!

I-944 is currently optional, not required: "Applicants and petitioners whose applications or petitions are postmarked on or after July 29, 2020, should not include the Form I-944 or provide information about the receipt of public benefits on Form I-485, Form I-129, or Form I-539/I-539A." https://www.uscis.gov/green-card/green-card-processes-and-procedures/public-charge/injunction-of-the-inadmissibility-on-public-charge-grounds-final-rule

A federal judge issued a nationwide injunction on Wednesday that temporarily blocks the USCIS public charge changes that were implemented in February: https://ccrjustice.org/sites/default/files/attach/2020/07/Dkt 221.Judge's Order granting COVID-19 PI and denying most of MTD.7 29 2020 cuccinelli.pdf "Defendants are enjoined from enforcing, applying, implementing, or treating as effective the Rule for any period during which there is a declared national health emergency in response to the COVID-19 outbreak."

It took 2 days for USCIS to mention something about the injunction on uscis.gov: "Last Reviewed/Updated: 07/31/2020" https://www.uscis.gov/green-card/green-card-processes-and-procedures/public-charge/injunction-of-the-inadmissibility-on-public-charge-grounds-final-rule

Thanks sooo much for this info! We’re truly grateful!

 

Before I get too excited, since it’s optional, I’m guessing that means we shouldn’t include it, or does “optional” in this case mean “we can’t deny you for this alone but it will look bad if you don’t include it”?

YMMV

Don’t worry, we absolutely will! The sooner we can get it sent the less stressful our lives will be. This was practically the only thing setting us back from submitting our packet.

Does your wife's ssn appear on the credit report? If so, then I don't think the misspelling of her first name would matter.
