May 14, 2021

renew us green cardAs a trusted green card attorney in Tampa Florida, The Law Office of Robert Eckard & Associates knows our way around the green card application and renewal processes. If you have one, you don’t want to let it expire. 

Don’t Let Your Green Card Expire

Your green card is proof that you’re able to legally and lawfully live and work in the United States. If you let your green card expire, you do not lose your status as a permanent resident. The card is your proof. By law, you’re supposed to carry it on your person at all times. In some places, not carrying it comes with misdemeanor charges. Criminal charges on your record can hinder you from obtaining citizenship. 

How to Renew Your Green Card

Begin the application process, ideally within six months of the card expiring:  

  1. Apply for your green card online or through the mail. 
  2. Gather the necessary documents. You’ll need a copy of your current green card. 
  3. Pay any filing fees required. If you need a fee waiver, you’ll need to apply via mail. Follow all instructions to pay the cost otherwise. 
  4. Submit your biometrics when prompted to do so. 
  5. Submit your application. 

How a Tampa FL Green Card Attorney can Help

If you’re worried about filling out the forms correctly or if your green card has already expired, consider having a Tampa FL immigration attorney help you with this process. 

This becomes even more important if you’ve had any kinds of criminal charges appear on your record since your last green card application. Not all crimes will get you deported. We can work with you to help you word your application correctly and or possibly mitigate any negative repercussions.
