I have a friend from Poland who won the immigration lottery

I have a friend from Poland who won the immigration lottery 20-25 years. She was assigned a social security number but did not keep up with the green card filings. For some reason immigration in Poland cannot find her birth certificate information. Is there a way she can stay in the U.S. instead of trying to going back to Poland?

Was brought to US in 1956 by parents from Holland. I have my Dutch birth certificate, but lost my green card in a fire several years ago. I was 4 years old when we came to states. My birth certificate has a name on it that is not what I have gone by since I was in high school. I graduated from high school in 1969 and my name is ***** ***** I have always used, my social security card. issued in about 1964 or 1965 is in the name I have always used. How can I prove I am that person? I am attempting to start drawing my social security that I have been paying in since the 60's, SS has said yes, but they needed a document from INS proving it. What do I do.

FOR JUDITH: Im trying to fill out form I-90 to replace my

FOR JUDITH: I'm trying to fill out form I-90 to replace my lost Green Card. I'm a permanent resident and I came to U.S. with DV1 visa. In section 3 (processing information) there is one question which I do not have clear answer for. This is about my destination at addmision to U.S. So... when I was applying for my original green card back in my country where I came from, I specified the address for USCIS to mail the card to. The address was in Arizona. I was planning to go there for the start. Later my plans have changed and I never made it to Arizona (but application remained unchanged). I entered U.S. at JFK and stayed in NYC. My GC was mailed to Arizona and my friends mailed it back to me. Now I'm not sure if I should put NYC or the city in Arizona as my destination at admission. As far as I remember I didn't inform immigration officer at the airport that I'm staying in NYC (he didn't ask). Therefore they most probably don't know where I finished. Fev months after addmission to U.S. I updated my address with USCIS to NY, but definitelly not right away as they require. Maybe I'm overthinking this question, but I just don't want to make any stupid answer as I don't know what they are looking for with this question. I will appreciate any input. Thank you.

I recently found out that I am not a US citizen. I was born

I recently found out that I am not a US citizen. I was born in Germany and adopted by an American couple. I have gone my whole life (I am 58 years old) without a birth certificate. I have a driver's license and a social security card. I now have my birth certificate, from Germany, and my adoption papers. My birth certificate has my new parents listed (and my biological parents. I also have the front page of my 'application for immigrant visa and alien registration' and a copy of the inside page of my passport that has a number on it. There was a alien registration card but my mother lost it. The fee for replacing a card is steep and if you don't know the number they can't help. I can also apply for naturalization but those fees are also quite substantial. I am trying to figure out the best way to go about this. The visa application has a number on it but I'm not sure if that would work for finding my alien number. there is so much more to this story but I hope this is enough to start.

I am a green card holder. When I went to the Homeland Security,

I am a green card holder. When I went to the Homeland Security, I did not have my green card with me. I always have it with me. I have searched high and low, but I can't find it. I feel so desperate because I became unexpectedly retired in November 2013 and my savings are running out! Is there a way to expedite a request for a replacement green card? Thanks for your help!
