Writing this experience just for those who might be in the same/similar situation.

I have received my conditional green card Nov. 2018 and noticed my date of birth is incorrect. I found out that attorney had input wrong date of birth into the application form. I had to file I-90 for replacement with a correct date of birth. Here is my very brief timeline

Feb. 2019 - Applied I-90
Mar. 2019 - Biometric appointment
Apr. 2019 - Case is being actively reviewed

Nothing has changed since then. It has been over 8 months and seems like it is still within the processing time. I am not sure how other people get their card approved earlier than me despite the fact that they applied later than I did. But it is what it is.

Just writing here to lessen your anxious and please share your information if you are undergoing same situation.

Just FYI, in Seattle replacing your green card takes around 11 months on average. We are also worried about rampant mail fraud in our area because we requested our green card three times (roughly 2 1/2 years of waiting) and each time it was never delivered to our locked mailbox, even though the USPS claimed it was.

As far as the removal of condition process, we started that more than 9 months ago in January 2019, and still have not received an appointment for bio-metrics. A total of 3 years after originally applying, we still have not received one green card in the mail, and every time we left the country, my wife was interrogated like a criminal for more than 3 hours with our children hungry and screaming the entire time. NOT a fun experience. At this point while we wait for the removal of condition, she is allowed to stay in the country, but cannot leave due to no ACTIVE green card because the original condition was 2 years. So yes, if you apply for your removal of condition, you will have to wait past the expiration date of your original green card and you won't be allowed to leave the country. My advice is that if you are going to apply for a marriage green card, do it in an area other than Seattle.

I applied for my replacement card on 08/15/2019 after having lost my GC 2 days earlier. I applied I90 online and the whole process took 2 months and 3 days to get my new card. Below is my timeline.

08/15/2019 - Applied I90 online (using my DHS online account) and paid the fees online as well during the application.
08/19/2019 - Receipt notice was uploaded online to my I90 form under 'documents' section.
08/23/2019 - Received paper notice for I90 in mail.
08/26/2019 - Biometrics notice was uploaded to my I90 form under 'Documents' section. Appointment was for 09/11/2019.
08/28/2019 - Received paper notice for biometrics in mail.
08/29/2019 - Walked-in for early biometrics as I was travelling out of USA on 09/10/2019. Requested ADIT I551 stamp but was told to get an INFOPASS appointment for ADIT as they don't accept walk-ins. They were ok to do only biometrics for walk-ins.
08/29/2019 - Called USCIS number and asked for a INFOPASS for ADIT stamp. Officer said they will call back within 3 days to schedule it.
09/02/2019 - USCIS called on 09/02/2019 and scheduled infopass for 09/03/2019.
09/03/2019 - Went for infopass and got ADIT stamp on my passport. Stamp given for 1 year validity.
09/10/2019 - Travelled out of USA and returned on 10/02/2019. After I returned, Immigration stopped at airport for 2 hours after looking at my ADIT stamp. Took me into a waiting area and verified my information and then allowed me in luckily.
10/10/2019 - Received status update that the 'Card is being produced.
10/18/2019 - Card was delivered to my mailbox.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Hello all,

Here's my timeline for my I-90 renewal to whomever is interested. I filed my renewal online.

Card set to expire Oct. 2019.

June 11, 2019 - Filed online through USCIS website, uploaded GC card, paid fee.
June 12, 2019 - Application received by USCIS.
June 15, 2019 - Received notification via email regarding case. Biometrics scheduled for July 3, 2019.
June 20, 2019 - Walked in my local ASC and approved for early Biometrics. Received an extension sticker on the back of my GC valid through June 2020.
June 21, 2019 - Biometrics received and reviewed by USCIS.
June 23, 2019 - Received status from USCIS stating my GC has been produced and completing quality review.
June 26, 2019 - Checked Online Status link through USCIS website and shows that USPS picked up my GC and will be delivered on June 28, 2019.
June 28, 2019 - I am hoping its in my mailbox by the time i get home. Tracking number shows it is out for delivery and scheduled to be delivered by 8PM today.

All in all, if I do get it today, my timeline for renewal will be 17 days from me filing online and physical GC in hand.

May 10, 2019 - Submitted my application (Replace Permanent Resident Card) online - Received by USCIS
May 11, 2019 - Received a message thru my USCIS Account about Biometrics Appointment (May 28, 2019 @ 3 in the afternoon)
May 28, 2019 - Biometrics Appointment - DONE
May 31, 2019 - I received a message thru my USCIS Account stating "We produced your green card and are completing our quality review.
June 4, 2019 - Check the status of my application using my Receipt Number and say Card was picked up by the United States Postal Service with a tracking number. Checked on the tracking number and delivery date June 6, 2019

Just surprised how fast it goes from online application till delivery. Thinking that all that I've read regarding replacement application states that it will take 8-12 months for me to receive the physical card. During my Biometrics Appointment they placed a sticker at the back of my green card that shows it being extended for 1 year.

My daughter received her GC back in July 2018, whilst I realized about 2 month later the sex (gender) shows on her card specified as M (male).
Sharing here the timeline to receive new card with I-90 case:

Aug-28-2018 - I-90 form was filled online at uscis website. I uploaded copy of GC with the error and also birth certificate, as well as passport and copy of I-485 where application stated the correct gender. In order not to pay for the application I had to specify the reason for replacement - uscis error. If you are in fault for this kind of error do not expect not to pay for the card replacement.

Aug-29-2018 - We received your Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card, and mailed you a receipt notice. It is being processed at our Integrated Operating Env location.

Sep-2018 - received NOA for application receipt and it was saying that a new bio-metrics appointment will follow but a week later a new letter stated that existing bio-metrics on file (from July 2017) would be reused, so no appointment is required.

Oct-31-2018 - We mailed a request for additional evidence for your Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card. the RFE requested the original card be sent to VA uscis location, which I did few days later.

Nov-19-2018 - We received your response to our Request for Evidence for your Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card. Our Integrated Operating Env office is working on your case again. this status confirmed the original card sent via mail arrived.

Feb-26-2019 - We are producing your new card for your Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card.

March-1-2019 - On March 1, 2019, we produced your new card for your Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card, Receipt Number ##########

Mach-5-2019 Got USPS notification that package from uscis will arrive on March-7, eventually status changed twice on same day. once said it will be delivered on Mar-6, and then to delivered the same day (Mar-5)

Overall it took a bit more than 6 months to get new card.

Worth to mention that I scheduled an infopass appointment on Dec-2018, when I realized the new card is not going to be sent soon enough, and we might need to get out of the country, so I wanted to get i-551 stamp on her passport (valid for 1 year). other than get the appointment itself that was very quick and straight forward process.

 i am currently having a hard time with usps and uscis over my green card which was mailed but never delivered and i am willing to chase this to the roots even if i have to sue usps. in my case it was mailed on the 14th of october 2015 to arrive on the 16th of october but till date i am yet to receive i have been to the usps office repeatedly and the postmaster promised to send me the letter of non deliverance which usps requested but till date i got nothing and no body cares! usps is asking me to pay over $400 which i dont have and the status of my card is showing still in transit not delivered i have reasons to believe that someone either in the usps or uscis or both re doing some illegal business with these cards on the side otherwise why is no one being held responsible for the non delivery of these cards?????? why do they expect the applicants to just go ahead and pay again as if we pick money off the streets ? anyway have you been able to resolve this yet ? i am thinking of suing usps at this juncture because i am definitely not paying another dime - not that i have it anyways. someone here suggested i apply for a fee waiver but that is a very longish form that only lists finanacial hardship as reason for a waiver.this is a matter of principle and someone needs to be made to take responsibility i have read so many blogs with people going through the same issues- please could someone advise me on what i can do ?

We had been told that our green card was sent in February but it never arrived and they said it was never sent back. What are the odds of that? Not much. The U.S. postal system is good I have never had a letter not get to me nor my parents, I thought it was a scam to get more money or just to discourage us. So for 400 dollars we ordered another one. This one was supposedly sent on June 22nd...it never arrived either. Has anyone else had this problem of green cards never arriving?? Is this a scam or gross ineptitude?
