I'm US citizen currently living abroad in Singapore filing I-130 for my spouse for an immigration visa. I'll be sending the application to Chicago Lockbox. My husband previously had a green card but has since expired 5 years ago.
Do I need to state his previous social security and alien registration numbers under information on spouse (under Question C9 & 10)? I'm afraid if I provide this information when it's unnecessary, it may delay the process and invite unnecessary questions from the consular officer.
Absolutely you need to disclose his social security number if he has one as well as his A# and copy of his previous Resident Alien card. Add an addenedum to explain his abandonment of the presious Resident Alien card -- marriage didn't work out and he returned home or whatever.
