I came into the U.S with a K1 visa in 2013
My fiancé and I got married under 90 days as told. We filed for work permit and change of status. I got the work permit, we never heard anything from Uscis about the change of Status. We called to find out, they said it was still in process.
We filed for a work permit again, after the previous one expired. I got a notice last week, that my work permit was denied.
The letter stated that, I got into the U.S August of 2014, that the time for my K1 visa coverage had expired...
That my change of status case was closed.
All this time, no one called or sent a notice to inform us, until we filed for a new work permit. My I-90 form is there, I don't know why they didn't check it to know that I entered the States in Nov 2013, not August 2014... we're so confused on what to do next..
You need to speak with an immigration attorney asap. However, an answer on Avvo will not be sufficient. You need to consult with one in person and eventually hire them to take care of this problem.

You are (badly and hopelessly) confused.. It is for I-485 "adjustment of status" you should have filed and NOT for "i-90" which is simply to replace already existing "green cards". Consult with and hire a competent lawyer before you suffer more seemingly unending fiascos and frustrations..

You need to see a Board Certified immigration attorney immediately so this can be fixed. It should never have gone on this long. good luck
You should consult with a board certified immigration attorney. In the end you will save time and money. You should have had your green card by now but it appears you filed the wrong applications.
