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.
