So you have an expiring Green Card or just want to replace one?
Here are some key things about properly completing the replacement/renewal process, including Form I-90 – “Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card”
Your Green Card is good for 10 years. If your Green Card expired without you realizing it, the USCIS requires you to prepare and submit Form I-90,
Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card” as soon as possible.
Prepare and file your Form I-90 no more than six months before your Green Card expires because this will help avoid any undue processing delays. The process takes approximately 4 months to complete. You can find your expiration date on the front of the Green Card.
Remember that an expired Green Card makes it much more difficult to work or to travel and this is especially true in recent months.
Form I-90 can be used for many reasons including if: your Green Card was mutilated or destroyed, there is incorrect information on your Green Card, you are changing to commuter status or changing from commuter status.
