  1. Hey! So, I’m supposed to be applying for my citizenship soon and I have a pretty complicated tax situation. For the years of 2017 - 2018 my US citizen spouse was the only person bringing income due to my illness. We had a pretty rough couple of years. We recently lost our house, our car and our health insurance etc. because my spouse’s business failed. We owe $30k to IRS because we weren’t able to pay our taxes since we lost all of our money. We went from making $300k - $500k a year to only making $35k. Our car was repossessed and our house was foreclosed on. We now live in a rental apartment for $750 and recently bought a used $10k car. We’ve been working closely with IRS trying to figure out how to resolve our debt. We tried to set up a payment plan with IRS but they didn’t accept it due to our income being too low. We’re now “uncollectible”. It means our income is way too low for us to be able to pay off our taxes. IRS agreed to not proceed with any collection proceedings because they know we can’t afford paying our taxes. Realistically, we’ll never make that much money ever again. Now, my US citizen spouse in unemployed and I (the immigrant) work a retail job making $10/hour. We’re struggling financially...and now this tax debt makes us really concerned because it means that I will never be able to be a citizen because this tax debt is not gonna be resolved any time soon. We just don’t know what to do at this point...Is there any chance I can get my citizenship if I’m uncollectible? I tried to set up a payment plan but IRS is not accepting it due to our low income. I’d appreciate any advice I can get! Thank you!
  2. Thank you guys! I have an update tho! I just got a text message saying they received the case, 14 days after filing. I guess that means that G-1445 does work even if you mail via FedEx. Again, thank you so much! I really appreciate it. I do have another question tho. I want to contact my senator as well as request expedite processing due to USCIS error and I wanted to know how long I have to wait before doing those things? Do I have to get my biometrics done first? Thank you!
  3. Hello! I recently filed I-90 because my 2 year conditional green card had an error (wrong resident since date). I sent the application on December 3rd, 2018. According to the proof of delivery from FedEx, It was delivered and signed for on December 4th, 2018. It’s been 2 weeks or 14 days now and I still haven’t heard back from them even though I did send G-1445. My question is how long do I have to wait for NOA1 (receipt notice)? It’s been 14 days now and I’m getting kinda worried. Especially considering that I sent my original green card with that application. I thought I would at least get a text message by now saying they received it but so far nothing. I’d really appreciate any help I can get! Thank you!
  4. Hello! I'm currently putting my I-90 together so I can replace my 2 year conditional green card that has the wrong "Resident Since" date. I read the instructions for I-90 and it doesn't mention anything about the supporting evidence I need to send in the case like mine. The instructions just mention that I need to send proof of biographical data (e.g, copies of passport, birth certificate etc.). I understand that those are the documents you'd need to send if they got your DOB or name wrong but I'm not sure if I need to send those in my case. As of right now, I'm planning to send my I-485 approval notice and my original green card and that's it as far as the evidence goes. My question is do I need to send my passport, birth certificate or marriage license if I need USCIS to correct the "Resident Since" date and the "Card Expires" date or would my approval notice be enough? Should I maybe send copies of my passport and birth certificate just in case? I just don't want to get a RFE so I'm making sure I'm doing everything right. Thank you all so much! I'd really appreciate all the help I can get!
  5. Thank you all so much! I have a question about the evidence I need to attach with my I-90. Do I need to attach a copy of my birth certificate/passport or would my I-485 approval notice be enough? I know that when they mess up your name, you need to send a copy of those documents as proof of your biographical data but I’m not sure if I need to do that in my case since my card has an error that has nothing to do with my name, DOB or POB. I’m planning to send the following: - I-90 - G-1445 - Cover letter explaining the error - I-485 Approval notice to show when my permanent residency was granted - Original Green Card Would that be enough? Thank you!
  6. Hello Everyone! So I recently adjusted my status and got my 2 year green card. However, the green card contains a mistake. The “resident since” date is more than one year earlier than it should be and therefore it also expires one year earlier. Now I’m on the fence as to what I should do. I did some research and I found out that USCIS will a lot of the times go by the incorrect dates shown on the card and they will send you a letter reminding you to remove conditions and if you don’t, they might consider it abandonment of your permanent residency. According to the incorrect dates my card expires in Aug 2019 which means that USCIS won’t even know they made the mistake by the time I need to file to remove conditions. I’m really worried that this is what’s going to happen. So what do you guys think I should do? Should I just keep my card and remove conditions according to the dates that are on the card right now. Or should I just take a risk and file I-90 to replace it? I really don’t want to deal with USCIS thinking that I abandoned my permanent residency. I’d really appreciate any help I can get! Thank you so much!
  7. I sent a service request saying that my card has a typographical error. I want to see what they say. After looking more into it tho, I realized I might just have to end up submitting I-90. I will try to send get them to expedite it but I don’t know if they will. Fingers crossed!
  8. Wow, this is insane! I’m so sorry you’re having to go through all of this BS. Also, why the heck do they need your I-751? That makes no sense in your case. Here’s the thing tho, you can’t file I-90 online if you need a fee waiver which you do because it’s their mistake, not yours. That’s probably why you got denied. Also, did you send them the original green card that you need to get replaced? If you didn’t, that could be another reason they denied your application. You’re doing the right thing by contacting your senator! However, I wouldn’t even bother filing I-290B because most of the time, they won’t admit they made a mistake. I would just file I-90 all over again and this time make sure you do it by paper with the original green card included. After you file, go ahead and call USCIS and request them to expedite your application because they made this mistake, not you. Also, include a note with your application saying that you’re requesting them to expedite your application since again that’s their mistake. After you’re done with filing I-90, that’s when I’d contact the senator. I feel like you can get it done a lot faster this way. By the way, I’m not a lawyer in any way so I’m just giving my opinion, it’s not a professinal opinion, it’s just what I know from doing tons of research. I hope everything works out for you in the end! They really need to get they sh** together.
  9. Hello! I’m not sure if I chose the right thread for this question so I apologize if I did. I just got my 2 year green card that I waited over a year for but unfortunately it has an incorrect expiration date (it expires more than a year early) so I’m having to replace it by filing I-90. Here’s my question. I need to renew my driver’s license which expires December 12th, 2018. I wanted to know if I can go ahead and use my green card to renew the license right now, more than a month before it expires. Is it possible or do I have to wait till December to renew it? I just wanted to renew the license as soon as possible so I can go ahead and file my I-90. I can’t wait too long because my green card expires in less than 6 months even though it’s supposed to in 2 years. Thank you so much!
  10. The exact same thing just happened to me. My GC shows "resident since" Aug 2017 which is when they received my i-485. I waited for over a year just to send it back. Is there any updates on your case? Did you end up filing I-90?
  11. same thing just happened to me. The resident since date is the day my i-485 was received instead of when it was approved...so frustrating...
  12. Thank you so much for all the help! I also wanted to ask if it will be possible for me to get my driver’s license while I’m waiting for the card to arrive? I’m in the process of moving out of state and I’m gonna have to renew my license in a couple of months so I’m worried that I might have issues with that. Will the stamp in my passport be enough for DMV? Also will I be able to get a job and a bank account while waiting? It’s just so frustrating considering the fact that we waited for more than a year to get this green card... thank you so much!
  13. Hello, Everyone! I got my conditional green card today and I noticed that my “Resident Since” date is incorrect. As far as I know it should be the date my I-485 got approved but instead it is the date USCIS got my I-485 application which was more than a year ago (Aug 17, 2017). Not only that but my expiration date is incorrect as well. It is Aug 17, 2019 which is one year sooner than it should be. I did wait a pretty long time to get my green card, I waited for 1 year and 2 months to get my interview. I’m not sure if that matters in any way but I just wanted to mention it anyways. What should I do? Should I apply to get it corrected? If so, how long will it take and will I be able to keep my green card while waiting? Thank you so much!
