Green Card Renewal Form/Application

For the purpose of Green Card renewals, the USCIS requires permanent residents to submit Form I-90. Based on each applicant’s circumstances, additional forms might need to be filed along with Form I-90. This can make the application process both confusing and time-consuming. Our online service is here to simplify confusing immigration applications. Here’s how it works:

Green Card Renewal Processing Time

As of 2018, the current estimated processing time for Green Card renewal applications is 9.5 to 11 months**. Making mistakes on your application can lead to an even longer processing time and, in some cases, application rejection. If that happens, you may be required to re-apply and pay your filing fees again. Our service helps you avoid that headache. Prepare your form online and feel confident about getting it right the first time.

Green Card Renewal Fee Waiver

USCIS allows those applying to renew their green card to submit a fee waiver along with their application. Qualifying applicants may have their application fees waived by filing Form I-912, Request for Fee Waiver, with their application. If you are requesting a fee waiver, make sure to confirm your eligibility before filing by visiting https://www.uscis.gov/feewaiver

Green Card Renewal Process/Timeline

How does the green card renewal process work? Here’s answers to the most frequently asked questions.

1

Step 1: Can you apply for Green Card renewal?

If you are a permanent resident with a 10-year Green Card and your card is expired or will expire within the next six months, then you may need to file Form I-90 with the USCIS.

2

Step 2: What happens after filing Form I-90 with the USCIS?

After you file form I-90 with the USCIS, you will receive a receipt notice. This is confirmation that the USCIS received your application and has accepted it for processing.

If your form was not properly filed, then the USCIS will send you a rejection notice or a request to submit additional documentation. This can increase the processing time and the wait to get your new green card.

If you meet basic eligibility requirements, our service can help you properly file the first time and avoid this hassle. To begin your stress-free form preparation, start by taking our FREE eligibility quiz to check if you’re eligible to use our online software today.

The biometrics notice you received from the USCIS will contain specific instructions about the appointment, including what to bring with you and whom to contact if you need to reschedule.
