I applied for card renewal on Feb 2017 and t was approved.

Customer Question
I applied for green...

I applied for green card renewal on Feb 2017 and t was approved. However, in the process, I changed my address and notified INS. I received a letter in July stating that the card will be sent to card production and will be mailed in the new address. I waited but no card in the mail. I inquired few times and I was given different information. Then two weeks ago, I finally found out what happened. I was given a USPS tracking number and when I inquired, the green card was mailed to my old address on July 21 but whoever received it did not return the mail to sender. I was told by INS that I need to re-apply. My card is already expired and INS told me that it will be stamped for an extension. The sad part is that I need to pay another filing fee. I have financial difficulties and only receive $850 from my soc security. How can I waive the filing fee and will my case qualify for it? Please help me. Thank you very much.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you filed any paperwork with the USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) yet?

Only the previous application last Feb 2017.

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

The lwayer is charging me $500 plus the filing fee

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I think that's the bulk of my problem. Thank you

I'm so sorry to hear this happened.

Are you being asked to resubmit an I-90 form?

I'm not sure if you received my prior response to your question?

I want to let you know that yes, you can file for a fee waiver in order to avoid paying the fee again here.

To apply for the fee waiver you'll have to fill out and submit Form I-912.

You can find the form and instructions here:

https://www.uscis.gov/i-912

If you qualify, ie. if your income falls below a certain amount, depending on your household size, then you should be be able to get your I-912 approved and the fee waived.

I hope that helps!

Please let me know if you have any other questions. Also, please take a moment to rate me using the stars at the top of the page, as it's the only way experts are compensated for our time on the site. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating of 3 stars or more (5 stars are always appreciated). The question won't close after rating, so you can still ask follow-up questions after. Thanks, ***** ***** it!
