GREEN CARD RENEWALS
If you are a lawful Permanent resident/Green Card Holder, the Law Office of Brian T. O’Neill, PC can assist clients through the renewal process.
Green Cards are valid for up to 10 years. Although green cards have expiration dates, the permanent residency status of the person never expires. Once a person has been granted Permanent Residency status, such cannot be removed unless the green card holder voluntarily gives it up or acts in a way that is contrary to the purpose of the green card. It is important to keep the card up to date and could affect your ability to travel or to prove your ability to work in the USA.
In order to keep the card updated, when should a Green Card Renewal be filed?
When should a green card replacement application be filed?
There are times when a lawful Permanent Resident needs to request a Green Card Replacement before the current card expires.
You should go through the green card replacement process if:
What if I am a Conditional Permanent Resident?
If your green card is valid for only 2 years, you are a conditional permanent resident. Conditional residents are required to file to remove the conditional residency within 90 days of the card expiration.
If the conditional residency is based on marriage or investor classification, separate types of filing forms are required.
