Renewal of U.S. Green Card in Two Weeks After 8 Years of Pending Form I-90

Case Summary

Our client, Mr. Maung (name changed for confidentiality), a native of Burma, became a lawful permanent resident in the U.S., along with his parents, from the Diversity Visa Program in 2004. After returning from a visit to Myanmar in September of 2012, a CBP officer wrote: “I-90 Advised” on our client’s passport. Our client filed a form I-90 in 2012 but missed his biometrics appointment scheduled in San Francisco. He tried to reschedule and was told to wait for a notice in the mail for the appointment, but the notice never came.

Later, Mr. Maung returned to Myanmar temporarily to be with family. His initial green card expired in October of 2014, and he still did not receive a notice from the USCIS. He called the U.S. Embassy in Yangon to have his biometrics taken, but a Consulate informed him that they could not take biometrics for Form I-90.

Mr. Maung inquired with USCIS. The USCIS responded letter stated the case had been closed in August of 2013. Yet, on the USCIS website, the case was shown to be pending. Mr. Maung was stuck outside of the U.S. since his green card had been expired.

Mr. Maung wished to return to the U.S. and keep his U.S. lawful permanent resident status. He contacted our firm in the autumn of 2021. Our firm conducted an extensive review of his case and contacted with the USCIS on his behalf.

Following political turmoil in Myanmar, Mr. Muang and his wife came to the U.S. in March of 2022 after being granted a B2 visa from the U.S. Consulate in Bangkok, Thailand.

Our firm represent him filed a new Form I-90, accompanied by substantial evidence. The I-90 processing time generally takes 6 to 10 months. With the guidance of our firm in submitting the form, Mr. Maung was able to get his green card in only 2 weeks upon submission of the form.
