Green Card Renewal

Recommended Posts


Need your advice on below and appreciate your inputs on this . 

We are very close to Green Card renewal and I got my citizenship but still my wife has Green Card ( She did not applied for citizenship ) now my wife wants to renew her Green Card and it's expiring on 1st Sep 2019.

1) She wants go India in the summer end of May 2019 and returns back on end of Jul 2019  does it creates any problems at port of entry because her Green Card is expiring on 1st Sep 2019 ?

2) Do you advise to apply Green Card renewal before going for vacation or apply after coming back vacation in Aug 2019 ?

3) She can apply Green Card renewal 8 month before ? I heard that we have to apply GC renewal before 6 months ?

4) Do you have any idea about Green Card renewal processing time ? I heard that It's taking longer time now ( 3-8 months )

5) Do you advise to hire Attny for Green Card renewal ?

Thank you.
