How do I renew my green card?

On Behalf of | Jun 12, 2019 | green cards

Being legally in the United States and in Texas gives you many perks. You are able to find employment, attend school and take advantage of other benefits. If you have a green card, it is not a lifelong pass to stay in this country. Depending on the type of card, you may have to renew it or you may need to take additional steps to ensure it remains valid.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services explains that you may have a 10-year or 2-year green card. If you have a 2-year green card, you cannot renew it. You will, instead, need to petition to remove the conditions on your card. You may do this if you have a family-based reason by using Form I-751. You may also do this if you are an entrepreneur or an investor using Form I-829.

If you have a 10-year green card, then you can renew it. You will do so using Form I-90. You may file this form either online or through the mail. It is important to plan ahead. When you know your renewal time is coming up, you should start the process within six months to allow enough time to prevent a lapse.

It is imperative to follow all instruction for either the petition or any form you file. You need to include any requested documentation and fill out the form completely. It is also important to make sure that you allow enough time before your green card expires to renew or petition. Both processes can take time, and you do not want your green card to expire before you get a renewal. This information is for education and is not legal advice.
