What happens if I do not renew my two year green card?
If you do not renew your two-year conditional green card, it will expire, and you may lose your lawful status in the United States. If you continue to stay in the United States without lawful status, you may be subject to deportation or removal proceedings.
It is important to note that the process of renewing a two-year conditional green card is different from renewing a regular 10-year green card. If you fail to file a timely petition to remove the conditions on your residence, you may lose your status as a lawful permanent resident.
Therefore, it is essential to file a timely petition to remove the conditions on your residence by filing Form I-751, Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence, with USCIS within 90 days of the expiration date on your green card. If you fail to file the petition on time, you may request a late filing waiver, but it is generally granted only in extraordinary circumstances.
If you believe that you may not be able to file your petition on time, it is recommended that you consult with an experienced immigration attorney who can advise you on your options and help you develop a strategy for renewing your green card.
