Green card surrender in case of death

Recommended Posts

Hi ,

We are Green Card Holder and recently my spouse died due to illness. Do we have to inform USCIS specifically since death was registered in State's official records and it was also notified to Social Security administration. Do we have to surrender the Green Card ( Permanent Resident Card ) to USCIS ? What other information needs to be convey to USCIS .

If you are a green card holder (i.e. permanent resident), your status is not dependent on anyone else's status. You have the right to stay in the US permanently. You do not have to relinquish your status (unless of course you want to). If you are a conditional permanent resident with a 2-year green card, you can apply for Removal of Conditions yourself now on the basis that your spouse died.
