Is there a timeline on when to renew a permanent resident card

  1. 1. Is There a Timeline On When To Renew a Permanent Resident Card?Even if living permanently in the United States does not expire the authentic green cards, whichhave been issued between 1977 and 1989, the validity of those cards was indefinite, therefore theLPR cards has no expiration date. However, that changed under the current immigration lawbecause every LPR card holder are oblige to renew their green card because those are good onlyfor 10 years.Every permanent resident card holders are required by U.S. immigration law to always bringevidence of their immigration status (a valid green card) because you are violating the laws ofAmerica if your resident card is expired. By carrying a permanent resident card which is not currentcan give you some difficulties by proving that: You are eligible to live and work in the United Statesand another pain in the butt is you will have a hard time re-entering in the U.S. from your tour out ofthe country. Therefore, if you have plan to have a vacation it is sensible to check the validity of yourcard before leaving the United States to avoid any hassle returning to America.If you are in America and you knew that your green cards has expired or about to expire, thenwithout any delay file a green card renewal form I-90. You can file an application via email or online.For further instructions you can visit the official USCIS website.On the other hand, if you are outside the United States then the green card renewal process is verydifferent. If your green card expired while you are outside the United States and prior to yourdeparture in the U.S. you didn’t apply for LPR renewal, then you are advised to contact your nearestU.S. consulate office or US port of entry before filing a green card renewal application. Still, if youare outside the country and your resident card is about to expire or it will expire within six monthsand you know that you will be back in America before its expiration date then you are required to fileimmediately for card renewal the moment you return to the U.S.Nonetheless, The USCIS will issue a temporary proof of your resident status in the United Stateswhile you are waiting for your green card renewal because it is hard to tell the timeline on when yourgreen card renewal can be released. Normally, you can have your green card renewal between 3months to a year or longer.Posted @ http://greencardrenewalinfo.tumblr.com/post/41878024098/is-there-a-timeline-on-when-to-renew-a-permanent
