Can I renew my Green Card outside of the United States?

In the event that your Green Card is going to expire within 6 months, but you will return to the United States within one year of you leaving, you will have to file for the renewal card when your return. If you failed to apply for the renewal card before you left the United States, then you will need to contact a United States Consulate, USCIS office, or a United States port of entry before you are able to file a Form I-90 for renewal.

What should I do if my Green Card application is denied?

It is unfortunate that a rejected renewal application cannot be appealed. However, you may be able to file a motion to reopen or a motion to reconsider with the office that originally determined you were unfit for renewal.

It is in your best interest to contact an experienced immigration attorney if your renewal was denied. With the guidance from a skilled attorney, he or she can help you obtain, collect, and present all the evidence needed to show that the decision to deny your application was based on an incorrect application of the law.
