How Do I Get My Green Card Renewed in New York?

Can I Renew My Green Card Outside of the United States?

If 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 have not applied for the renewal card before you left the United States, then you must 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?

Unfortunately, a rejected renewal application cannot be appealed. However, you may have the potential to file a motion to reopen or a motion to reconsider with the office that initially determined you were ineligible for renewal.

Do not wait to reach out to an experienced immigration attorney if your renewal was denied. With the aid of a skilled attorney, they can help you obtain, collect, and present all the evidence required to show that the decision to deny your application was based on an incorrect application of the law.
