  1. Probably just an error on their part. Nothing to worry about. You should however make sure the A number is the same on both. If the A number is different you should call the 1 800# or mail a letter and copy of both letters to the USCIS.


  2. Nothing to worry about. USCIS usually does that.


  3. You are OK - it happens.


  4. Not a problem. I had a client that got 5 welcome letters! We joked that if they were to send one more maybe they'd just make him a citizen!!

    Now, if they send you 2 cards, make an InfoPass appointment.
