As a US lawful permanent residence (LPR) there are situations where you may need to obtain proof from US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), that you remain in lawful immigration status. This can be done by obtaining an ADIT stamp from USCIS. We discuss the meaning of an “ADIT” stamp and when it is necessary here.
On January 23, 2023, USCIS announced the extension of green cards (LPR) for petitioners who properly file Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence or Form I-829, Petition by Investor to Remove Conditions on Permanent Resident Status for 48 months beyond the card’s expiration date. We discuss the announcement of the extension of green cards for Form I-751 and Form I-829 here.
Current green cards have a validity of either two (2) years, or ten (10) years, and must be renewed. Previous green card versions did not have an expiration date. These green cards are no longer valid and should be replaced with a new green card. Here is how to renew or replace your green card.
