RE: I9 Forms
You may accept an expired driver license, but get this - just yesterday I called INS with the same question, this time referring to an expired Resident Alien card from List A on the I-9. The agent told me that once residence is granted it is permanent, and that an expired card does not indicate expired status. This flies in the face of everything else the I-9 and the INS state, especially since there are conditional residents and temporary residents, and why else would there be an expiration date if status is permanent?! One more quick thing: in List A on the front of the I-9 where it asks for the document number, is this the nine digit A number on the card? or do we list the card as an I-551, for example? There are no samples available from INS, no document numbers on the cards, and we want to make sure we're doing it right! The INS agent told me to "use my judgment" - when any government official says that, I get cold chills...
