  1. As an immediate option, you can make an INFOPASS and go to your local USCIS office for a notation be placed in your Passport to the effect. Also the USCIS office can document the error in their system so when you request reentry the port of entry the CBP officer can see an explanation of the error on their computer system. Also, when you travel bring as much proof as you can showing that the LPR card you have corresponds with your other vital information and your attempts to correct the error.

    In the longer term, you will have to request a replacement of the LPR card.

  2. Go ahead and travel. When you return to the U.S., submit form I-90 to correct your birth date on your green card.

His response to your question is general in nature, as not all the facts are known to him. You should retain an attorney experienced in immigration law to review all the facts in your case in order to receive advice specific to your case.

  3. I agree with Mr. Abbott and Mr. Schmidt. If your date of birth was submitted correctly to the USCIS, but was the victim of a typographical error, then you should be able to file the I-90 without a fee after having marked the box with the "card wrong due to USCIS error."

    Good luck!
