Replacing or Renewing Permanent Resident Card (Green Card)

Basic Requirements:

In order for permanent residents to replace their permanent resident card (green card), one of the following conditions must first be met:

  • A permanent resident card (green card) has expired;
  • A permanent resident card (green card) will be expiring within six months;
  • A permanent resident card (green card) was destroyed, lost, mutilated, or stolen;
  • A permanent resident card (green card) does not display any expiration date;
  • A permanent resident card (green card) is in any way incorrect;
  • A permanent resident card (green card) holder’s name has changed and the card still has his or her old name on it;
  • A permanent resident card (green card) never arrived after it was approved;
  • A permanent resident turns 14 following the attainment of a permanent resident card (green card).

Unlike older permanent resident cards (green card) that do not have expiration dates—which all expired on March 20, 1996—current permanent resident cards (green cards) have expiration dates, typically around 10 years after they were issued. It is critical to note, however, that the expiration date on a permanent resident card (green card) does not affect the continued permanent residence of any individual, though the failure to replace or renew the permanent resident card (green card) will leave that individual without legal proof of permanent residence. As a result, anyone who fails to renew or replace his or her permanent resident card (green card) may notice his or her ability to work and travel has been affected.

Warning to Conditional Permanent Residents:

Please be aware that there is a distinct difference between an expiring conditional resident status (which often only lasts for two years) and an expiring permanent resident card (green card). Critically, individuals with conditional permanent resident status must have the condition removed if they wish to legally remain in the United States. The attorneys at Law Office of William Jang, PLLC have extensive experience in this area and a long track record of success.
