Permanent Residents

If you are a permanent resident with a green card that was valid for ten years, you will use Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card to renew your card when it expires or is within six months of expiring.

Conditional Residents

If you are a conditional resident, your green card will expire two years from the date it was issued. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) requires a Petition to Remove the Conditions of Residence to be filed within the 90 day period before the card expires.

  • Use Form I-751, Petition to Remove the Conditions of Residence based on marriage (if you are married to a U.S. citizen or permanent resident).
  • Use Form I-829, Petition by Entrepreneur to Remove Conditions if you were granted conditional residence through entrepreneurship.
