Green Card Petitions

The attorneys at Ervin Kibria PLLC can help you apply for your green card renewal or replacement.

Renewing & Replacing a Green Card

Unless a green card is issued on a conditional basis (for a newly married spouse and his/her children), all green cards must be renewed every 10 years. We recommend applying for green card renewal (Form I-90) within 6 months of the card’s expiration date. You should file for a green card replacement if the information on your green card has changed, or if your green card has been lost, damaged, or stolen.

If you have been a green card holder for at least 5 years, you may want to consider applying for U.S. Citizenship which has more benefits than a green card, including the fact that you never have to apply for any type of renewal again.

For additional questions about green card replacement or renewal, get in touch with one of our immigration attorneys.

 

GREEN CARD REPLACEMENT OR RENEWAL REQUIREMENTS

Green card renewal is a straightforward process with only a few requirements. Renewing your green card a few months in advance will ensure you don’t run into issues with employment or international travel.

Requirements for removing conditions on your marriage green card is a completely separate process. Contact an immigration attorney at Ervin Kibria PLLC today to learn more about the removal of conditions process.

GREEN CARD REPLACEMENT OR RENEWAL PROCESS

You should file for a green card replacement if the information on your green card has changed, or if your green card has been lost, damaged, or stolen. Both the renewal and replacement process for green cards are the same: you must file an I-90 form, which takes about 3 to 4 months to process. We recommend applying for green card renewal (Form I-90) within 6 months of the expiration date.

If you have a conditional green card from a recent marriage, eventually you must apply to remove the green card’s conditions to stay in the U.S. permanently. Removing the conditions of your green card (Form I-751) is not the same as a general green card renewal. For a removal of conditions on your green card, you must apply 90 days before the expiration of your conditional green card.
