  1. USCIS made an error for "Country of Birth" on my Permanent Resident Card (Green Card), it says "USA" but I was born in a foreign country. Caught the error late and never had it corrected/replaced. My PRC expires on June 20, 2019. Here is my dilemma: There will be important things I need to do within the next 8 months that requires me to prove valid resident status. The instructions on USCIS website for filing I-90 says, "If you are a permanent resident whose 10-year green card has expired or will expire within the next 6 months, you may begin the renewal process" AND "Additionally, if you applied for naturalization at least six months before your Green Card expired, you may be able to receive an ADIT stamp instead of filing a Form I-90." Today is January 12, 2019. The Green Card expires on June 20, 2019, is "within 6 months" between the period of 01/29/2019-06/29/2019? And is "at least 6 months before" before 01/29/2019? I'm trying to figure out if I qualify to skip filing I-90, file N-400 instead, and get a temporary stamp to prove legal status considering it takes almost a year to process N-400 where I am located. The other issue is my Green Card contains an error made by USCIS/DHS. If it is necessary to file I-90, should I put the reason as "My existing card has incorrect data because of Department of Homeland Security (DHS) error. (Attach your existing card with incorrect data along with this application." or simply choosing the renewal option for soon to be expired Green Card and attach a letter explaining that there is an error on the card to avoid delays/rejection. Chances are if I choose that reason and send in my Green Card with the application, I won't get it back for a while considering the processing times. Currently, InfoPass appointment is not available because "This office is not accepting walk-in requests or scheduling InfoPass appointments." Any suggestions or recommendations are greatly appreciated! Thank you.
  2. Hello everybody, I am not sure if I am posting in the right place. I filed for ROC and was approved, I received my GC but it has the wrong "resident since" date on it. It is off by 10 days. I entered the country on the 17th but the date says the 7th. I am planning to file N400 as if I entered on the 17th and not the 7th. Will this typo be a problem during N400? Will it cause my petition to be denied for any reason? Should I go through the hassle of filing I-90 and wait like 8 months for this to be fixed? I also don't want to give away y GC and wait forever to get a new one. Please let me know if someone went through this. Thank you
  3. 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!
  4. Hello guys! Just want to ask if how long does it take to process Visa correction? I got my Visa last July 20, and booked our flight on November 7. My brother finish his Thesis before we leave the country) while we’re at Airport, It’s our mistake that we didn’t attend CFO so we went there the other day and cancelled our flight. The staff at CFO informed me that my Visa is incorrect and it should be E-35 not E-32. I submitted my passport and visa pocket last November 8. On November 16, I went to US EMBASSY for updates and they told me that the Visa is already printed but they’re still waiting for it to delivered to them and they told me that I should not worry because they’re sure that my visa will be deliver next week (which is today’s week). And I already follow up them through calls and upon checking today November 22, the case status is READY for almost 1 week, and the last update was November 15. It’s been almost 2 weeks and I’m getting anxious because the expiration of our visa is on December 5. So anyone here know how long did it take to process visa correction?

    Error in I-129F Form

    Anyone here who made an error on their I-129F form? We just found out that the first name and middle name of my mother have been switched, our case is now ready at the embassy. How can we correct it? Should I even raise this issue on my interview? Will it even matter? Thanks
  8. Hi! I am trying to update my timeline as my ROC case is moving forward. I filed the petition on 04/20 and received NOA on 06/01. But when I try to put in those dates and submit changes the site takes me to an error page and says the dates are incorrect, as the time between filing and NOA couldn't be more than 4 weeks. But there is no mistake, it actually did take VSC well over a month to open my case, cash my check and send me the NOA. I am trying to put the correct dates in my timeline because I want to keep track of all my cases. For now I had to put the NOA date as 05/01 and type the correct date in the little comment window. But is there a way to fix it and make the correct date to show in my timeline? Thanks!
  9. We sent off our I-130 four days ago. I am the US citizen and my husband is the beneficiary. I was extremely meticulous with compiling it, and we were confident we had done everything correctly. However, we just found out today that my father-in-law's birth year is actually 62 and I wrote down 63, as both my husband and I had been told by both his parents that they were born in the same year. My question is, what can we do? Is it possible to send in an Affidavit now with clarification to avoid an RFE? Will that misinformation create a hang-up in our petition? We're worried this small incorrect detail will slow down our process and we'd like to amend it preemptively, if possible. Thanks for your advice.
  10. Hi there, I am getting the most frustrating error when trying to access the DS 260 form for completion. My case was expedited to the London US embassy so I never received an NVC welcome letter with an invoice ID which I have heard about, instead a letter explaining the expedite request approval. When searching the Embassy site for answers, we found that I should use my birthdate in the format YYYYMMDD instead of the invoice ID. Unfortunately when I enter my case number and use the birthday format I get the following error: "The selected Case Number and Date of Birth combination does not match our records. Please try again or contact the U.S. Embassy or Consulate where your case is being processed" Following multiple attempts (even trying date format the other way around) and making sure my case number was correct (copy and pasted from email) I used the contact form on the London US Embassy website. I tried to keep the message very clear and to the point but after a week I finally received a reply just listing the link I need to use (they sent me the link to DS 160 which was incorrect) not having read or perhaps misunderstanding my question. I replied back just stating the error I am getting but it has been another week and I am running out of ideas! Any help would be greatly appreciated if anyone knows if I have caused this error somehow or how I can proceed. Thanks
  11. So, my fiance and I are preparing for the interview. Collecting all the papers, we noticed that my fiance's birthplace,as specified in the i-129f form, is incorrect and the petition is already at the embassy in manila. We haven't finished the DS-160 form yet. What should we do? Will this ruin us?
  12. Hello all, I am in the I485 process. We filed in 2017-04-01 had a RFE in 2017-05-01 And finally they sent us an interview appointment for 2018-05-17! We received the mail at the end of April! So far so good, right? Today we received another letter from the USCIS Office in Montgomery, where it says our interview appointment is on 2018-06-11 ?! But it seems to be very odd, because the letter is not an official Form 797C Notice of Action, it is just a plain piece of paper. And it does not tell me the casenumber! And there is no phone number to call the Field Office in Montgomery. The other thing what I noticed: When I check my case online, it gives me a validation error. We already called the USCIS and they say it is an error in their system and other people are also effected by that. I coudn't find something similar who has the same problem.. Do I have to attend to both interviews?
  13. I live in Maryland, so according to USCIS my i-129f should be processed by Nebraska Service Center. Today I've got pleasant news in a form of the NOA1 and unpleasant ones that my case will be processed by slower California Service Center (WAC-xxxxxxxxx receipt number). Is it a mistake on the part of USCIS, or is it something they're doing routinely? Thanks, Viktor
  14. Ive recently filed form i485 for green card , after 1 year of asylum approval , and i just noticed that i made a mistake on two of the general eligibility and inadmissibility grounds questions " the one that asks if you received public assistance and the one that asks if you are likely to receive public assistance or no " i answered no while the answer should be yes as i'm receiving medicaid" i answered no as i was confused between public assistance and public charge , and since medicaid inst public charge i answered no ! . is there anyway i can fix this ? can i send a letter to change it, or a corrected copy of this page of the form with my initials and ask them to allow me to change it ? or what can i do to fix this mistake ? or what are my options ? i have the case number and i know which office is processing my case. has anyone fixed a mistake on a submitted form before ? and how did it go ? Thank you in advance
  15. Hi everyone, I filled in December 8 and received my NOA1 in December 15 but when I tried to put my receipt number, it gave me error. I let it go because somewhere else I've read that it's pretty common, but now we're in March and I'm still not able to see my case. Is this really normal or there's something wrong with my process? I'm getting a little worry Thank you! (I'm applying for the K-1 visa btw, and i'm the beneficiary).
  16. HI, I am trying to access my DS260 application today, but it is returning an "Application Error" message. Anyone having the same issues? How can I rectify it. Please help. Thanks.
  17. I am the USC filer for my wife, Alia. We received our notice that the petition was received and is being processed at the Texas Service center. The notice has the case number, starting with "SRC", and a priority date of December 4, 2017. I asked for text and email updates on the form, and so far have not received either. When I try using the case status tool on the USCIS website I get an error that the case number cannot be found / does not exist. When I use the phone system I have the same problem. I have not yet called and spoken to a real person. I just sent an email and will see if that is effective. I think three and a half months is plenty of time for things to "be in the system". The one oddity of my case is when I first sent in the petition I forgot to sign it. They sent it back with a note which said that I forgot to sign it. So I signed it and sent it back in. Has anyone else had issues where the case number was not discoverable via any of the case status tools?
  18. On my wife immigrant data summary there was one letter that was a error on aliases is she going to have any problems at the airport?
  19. Hi all First I would like to thank you all as you really helped me during my GC journey. Now, here is where I currently stand and was wondering if anyone faced the same or have any advice that can help me. I came to the US with K1 visa and got married then filed all papers accordingly (I485 ... etc) that was during the first week of March 2017, I recently received the approval notice on my I485 on the 7th of Sep. 2017, but it had a typo in my first name, I contacted USCIS right away (as the approval notice requested me to check for any error in information and contact them if needed), the USCIS open a ticket and confirmed me that all will be sorted. after three weeks (on 09.21), I noticed my case was updated and shows that "Name was updated" then I received a notice by Mail which confirms that change was completed. on 10.05.2017, I received another approval notice with the same old typo !!! then I contacted them once again the day after to ask them to fix it. USCIS raised another ticket but this one was closed after one day. Today I received in the mail that I would need to schedule an appointment with the USCIS office to solve this issue. BUT I also received today the GC with the same error!! Now what do you recommend me to do in here, I am currently looking at the following options: 1- Schedule appointment with the USCIS and try to get my passport stamped with the GC (i551 stamp). 2- Contact the USCIS Ombudsman to tell them about my case. I have been in this process since August last year, I am sure you share the same feeling and pressure like me (if not worse). I just want to finish this topic and move on. Thank you for your help
  20. Okay so this is interesting. I just received 3 identical emails from USCIS that our case status has been updated. Then immediately after we received 12 identical consecutive text messages within seconds of each other from USCIS. Certificate Of Naturalization Was Issued On September 29, 2017, we issued your Certificate of Naturalization for your Form N-400, Application for Naturalization , Receipt Number IOEXXXXXXXXX. If you move, go to www.uscis.gov/addresschange to give us your new mailing address. Problem is my wife was sworn in last year and received her certificate in 2016 immediately following her swearing in ceremony in Honolulu. Let's hope the Russians have not hacked USCIS. Anyone ever experienced this? David
