Recall of 8,500 Green Cards for Incorrect “Resident Since” date

On May 14, U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) began recalling approximately 8,500 Permanent Resident Cards (also known as Green Cards), that contain an incorrect “Resident Since” date. We issued these cards between February and April 2018 to spouses of U.S. citizens after  we approved their Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions of Residence. The correct “Resident Since” date on the new Green Card should be the same as the “Residence Since” date on the expired two-year Green Card.

Our office has already received letters from USCIS asking to mail back to return the incorrect green cards and a replacement card with the correct “Resident Since” date will be issued in three (3) months.
