Had Greencard for my daughter since 2007, which is obtained through me on employment basis. Recently when she went to driver's license office for some verification purpose the dmv office retained her greencard and drivers license. At this point of time we were panic as she has to travel international on 25th May. We have approached the concerned authorities they said they will return them in a week.
The question is: When my GC application is approved, we got the physical cards in mail. Both approval & cards were issued at the same time. So I do not have GC approval stamp in my passport. Can I apply for GC stamp in the passport now? If yes, how do I request that ? if I apply for stamp in passport ...can it be used as a backup in case if I loose it. Can any one advise us?
ke an infopass appointment with your local CIS office. https://infopass.uscis.gov/info_lang.php?sel_lang=en They should put a stamp in the passport.

Getting a stamp in the passport used to be fairly routine, but that no longer is true. The stamps are less tamper-resistant than the standard "Green Cards" and the USCIS will provide a stamp in a passport, through an INFOPASS appointment, only in exceptional cases. One such case would be someone who provides documentary evidence that she is to travel in a few days and documentary evidence that her "Green Card" was retained by state government employees. With the stamp in the passport, one should expect to have to go through "secondary inspection" at the airport when she returns, and while that may take some extra time, it should be satisfactory.

You cannot just apply for a stamp. You get the stamp if you are, e.g., applying for a replacement green card (file I-90 for lost, renewal). I am wondering why the DMV retained the green card and driver's license. They should not do that -- they are not DHS/USCIS. Could you call them and find out the reason and then you may need to get an immigration lawyer involved to get some resolution.
