FAQ

A Green Card grants its holder the right to live and work in the United States permanently. However, Green Cards can be revoked.

A Green Card provides its holder with both benefits and limitations. Failure to follow the rules set by the government for Green Card holders can lead to loss of https://www.usimmigration.org/glossary/permanent-resident. This usually happens due to:

  • Immigration fraud - Marriage to a U.S. citizen only to obtain a Green Card.
  • Committing a crime - If a Green Card holder commits a serious enough crime, it is grounds for deportation.
  • Committing Fraud - If the permanent resident lied, omitted relevant information on their application, or committed any fraud to get a U.S. green card and this is discovered after the Green Card is issued.
  • Failure to Establish a Permanent Residence, or Abandonment of Permanent Residence - Green Card holders must maintain residency in the United States, so if a permanent resident remains outside of U.S. territory for 180 days or more, their Green Card will be revoked. If a permanent resident needs to travel outside the U.S. for an extended period, they will need to obtain an authorization that proves they do not intend to abandon their status.
  • Failure to advise of a change of address - Permanent residents must report any change of address to USCIS within ten days.

In most cases, Green Cards are valid for 10 years, and 2 years for Conditional Residents. After this period, the card must be renewed or replaced. To renew or replace a Permanent Resident Card please complete Form I-90 Green Card Renewal.
