  1. My husband file a I-90 instead of the I-751 within the 90 days in March 2017 in order replace ny green card on a CR1 visa entry. I did the Biometrics in May and in November USCIS asked for a copy of the green card. Every month later we received an email stating USCIS is still reviewing our case. It is only by the USCIS Denial letter of December, 2018 that we realized that I was supposed to submit Form I-751 for the Replacement. Preparing to file the I-751 as soon as possible with an explanation letter of my 17 month expired green card but as I see it, a mistake like this is not consider a "good cause". We have a 10 year old child (IR2 10 year visa) that joined us 3 years ago from Vietnam from my previous marriage. Any advice? Thank you H.
  2. 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!
  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 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!
  5. Hello all, My wife entered the country Nov 16, 2017 after going through the entire immigration process. We just received her green card in the mail, and we believe the expiration and issue dates are wrong. Am I correct in thinking that if she came in on a CR-1 visa, that her "residence since" date should be the date she crossed the border? Currently, the month and day are correct (11/16) but the year is wrong (2016). On her card, it shows that the card expires 11/16/2018 which would be one year after her arrival date (should be 2019). Can anyone here confirm that the date is indeed wrong and that I should file an I-90 for a replacement card? Any idea how long that could take? Will we run into any issues if the incorrect expiration date on her card passes, and we have not received a new green card? I can't believe that they made this mistake after all this time, effort and money. Please help! Thanks in advance for any responses received!
  6. Hello, We were waiting on a GC to arrive in the mail a few months after entry into the United States. To make a long story short, we never received the card, although USPS claims it was delivered to our mailbox 2 months ago (during which I called USCIS and they told me the card had yet to be printed, it wasn't until a week ago they provided me tracking info). Does anyone have any experience/success filing the I-90 form to replace the GC and not paying the fee? I haven't been able to get a straight answer from USCIS, but during one call they claimed I could "easily" call USPS (an oxymoron) and request that they, on official letterhead, simply state that they messed up the delivery. While I believed this at the time, I've since tried calling USPS and aside from not even getting a human on the other line, I also predict it impossible for them to assume responsibility. Anyone with advice or experiences on how to request a replacement and avoid the fee is greatly appreciated!
  7. Hi VJ, I just saw the e-file option for I-90s and had a few questions: I know that with the paper version, you have to send your GC back but what about the online version? What's the timeline been for I-90s these days? I'm filing for a name change, but my marriage certificate doesn't list my new name. Will that still work? Thanks!
  8. Dear forum members, I am a German citizen and have legally changed my name while in Germany. As I will still be here in Germany for a longer while before going back to the US, I wanted to know where I would have to file I-90 (renewal of green card). Will the USCIS office in the consulate in Frankfurt help me? Or do I mail it all to the US? Thank you.
  9. Hi guys how are yall! 😊 So my case is, we applied for removal of condition and finally got the new card,but this time with misspelled middle name ☹️, so we call USCIS talked to a representative and so they send us an email about filling I-90 with payments then after few days we call again to follow up for few questions , of course talked to a different representative this time and give him our referral ID from the last time we called, so after few days we receive another email about filling I-90 WITHOUT payment, so now we’re comfused of w/c instruction to follow. Any advice please 😞 thank you guys! I appreciate.
  10. Hi all, I was wondering if anyone has dealt with filing a I-90 form to replace a lost/stolen greencard? I was in Europe last year when my bags were stolen and my GC was in it. I filed the form I-90 in August 2017 and did Biometrics in September 2017. Now it's been months and there is still no update on the replacement greencard. Why does this take so long? Don't they just need to print a new card? Any insight would be very helpful! Thank you!
  11. Hello, I am helping my mother e-file her I-90 renewal. She is an IR1 recipient and maintained a copy of her last application from 2007. On her 2007 application, she listed her birth state rather than her birth city. Her birth certificate lists her birth city but she is unsure if she has ever used her birth city instead of the state on any USCIS form. Should she stick with her birth state since there has not been an issue before or should she write her city? If she writes her city, is she required to explain the discrepancy?
  12. Hello Visa Journey Members: I hope everyone is well. It has been a long road to obtain the removal of conditions on my wife's green card. Last April (2016), we submitted the I-751 to remove the conditions for 10 years. We received an update in late November (2016) finally that it was approved and the card was to be delivered. We were ecstatic. Long story short, the card never arrived to our mailbox. Distraught, upset, etc., the USCIS said they could do nothing for us. The postal service could do nothing for us besides giving me a letter indicating it could have been misplaced in another mailbox since we live in a multi unit apartment building. We waited until early February (2017) hoping it would turn up or would be sent back to the USCIS office. It never arrived. We contacted our local congresswoman's office but they were not able to assist and informed us to submit the 1-90 form and payment once again. Obviously, it was greatly disheartening and mind boggling that they do not provide tracking numbers, etc. I would gladly pay $200 to do so but it is not an option nor having it delivered to our local USCIS. We sent in the I-90 in early February (2017), saw shortly after that they cashed the check and my wife had her biometrics screening in early April (2017). For the past month plus, we have not had any updates. Has this occurred to anyone else regarding the I-90 or having it lost/stolen? Do you know roughly when we should expect to receive the replacement card if we filed in February 2017 again for a replacement? It is frustrating since they approved her, indicated everything was sufficient and all is needed is the card! Trying to remain positive in a far too rigged and complex process. Thanks for your time and assistance in advance! Brian
  13. I need to file an I-90 for my daughter because she turned 14 this month. I would like to file online because her case is eligible to E-file ( line G1 below). I have attempted to do so but the E-file will not let me add another case. I had to file an I-90 for my son because they incorrectly sent him a 2 year instead of 10 year green card. When I click on add case, all it brings up is an application for my son to naturalize. Anyone know how to add a case? You are eligible to file the Form I-90 online if: You are NOT eligible to file the Form I-90 online if: (A) Your card was lost, stolen or destroyed. (B) Your card was never received. (C) Your card was mutilated. (D) Your card was issued with incorrect data due to a USCIS administrative error. (E) Your name or other biographic information has legally changed. Your card is expiring within 6 months or has already expired. (G1) You are filing to renew your card within 30 days of your 14th birthday and your existing card will not expire before your 16th birthday. (G2) You are filing to renew your card within 30 days of your 14th birthday and your existing card will expire before your 16th birthday. (H1) You have taken up commuter status. This means you commute regularly to work in the United States but reside in Canada or Mexico. (H2) You have been in resident commuter status and are now taking up actual residence in the United States. (I) You have been automatically converted to lawful permanent resident status. (J) You have an older edition of the card and must replace it with the current type.
  14. Hi all, I've lurked on these forums for months and finally need some advice. I'm getting ready to file I-751 but do NOT have a physical green card as it went missing overseas in December 2016, I immediately filed an I-90 but they are so backlogged. I'm STILL waiting to receive it but it could be a while (Current processing times are in Sept 2016, so still 3 months out from me). I'm expecting my I-90 will be approved in Nov/Dec Anyway- I can file my I751 Mid October and I'm already worried about not having enough supporting evidence. But my major concern is I do not have a physical green card, nor do I have anything besides a picture of the front of green card before it went missing, I don't have a back copy (my PC died and it wasn't backed up, luckily had a photo of the front on husband's old phone). Everywhere I've read you have to submit front and back copy of card. Another thing I need advice on- if I file I-751 at 90 days before GC expires, and my I-90 to replace hasn't been approved, will it cancel it and I won't get my physical GC because it's so close to expiration? If that happens, I will get the stamp to travel. But, I'm just worried because then when I want to file next October 2018 for N400, I doubt i will be able to because I will have NO physical green card or real copy..... Filed I-90: December 2016 (Still pending and only processing Sept 2016 currently, so I expect another 3-4 month wait) Filing I-751 October 2017 (Will this cancel my I-90? I don't want to not file my I-751 to close to deadline but also I want physical green card back even if it will expire so soon) Filing N-400 October 2018 ??? I feel like I'm in such a difficult position with my I-90 hoping to be approved so close to I-751 filing time. I've dreaded this moment since my GC went missing and now having to face reality head on. Any advice anyone can provide will be great. I have spoken to a few immigration lawyers in my area who honestly have no idea what to do either, alot of them said I know more about the process than them
