Applying for a Green Card Extension
The process for applying for a green card extension is the same as it was in 2018. You will need to submit a completed I-90 form, along with any required supporting documentation, to the USCIS. Once your application is received, the USCIS will review it and make a decision on your case. If your extension is approved, you will be issued a new green card that will be valid for another 2 years.
Renewing Your Green Card
If your green card is set to expire within the next six months, you may be wondering if you can renew it. The answer is yes, you can renew your green card, but the process is a little different than it used to be. In the past, green card holders could simply file a form with the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) and receive a new green card in the mail a few weeks later.
However, since the implementation of the REAL ID Act in 2005, green card holders have been required to appear in person for an interview with a USCIS officer in order to renew their cards. This requirement applies to all green card holders who are age 14 or older and are applying for renewal after their card has expired or will expire within the next six months.
Applying for a Green Card Replacement
If you are a green card holder and you need to travel outside the United States, you may be wondering if you can travel with a green card extension letter in 2019. The answer is yes, you can travel with a green card extension letter in 2019.
If your green card is set to expire within the next six months, you may be eligible to apply for a green card replacement. If you are approved for a green card replacement, you will be issued a new green Card that is valid for ten years. You will also be issued a green card extension letter that is valid for one year.
You can use the extension letter to travel outside the United States and re-enter as a lawful permanent resident. However, please note that the extension letter does not extend the validity of your green card. You will need to renew your green card once it expires.
Applying for a Green Card After Marriage
The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) allows some foreign nationals who are married to US citizens or lawful permanent residents (LPRs) to apply for a green card. This process is commonly known as “ Adjustment of Status.”
If you are married to a US citizen or LPR, you may be eligible to apply for a green card if you meet certain requirements. For example, you must have entered the US with a valid visa, and you must be admissible to the US. In addition, you must be able to show that your marriage is genuine and that you and your spouse intend to live together permanently in the US.
If your application for a green card is approved, you will be issued a green card valid for two years. After two years, you will need to renew your green card. If your marriage ends before you have been married for two years, you may still be eligible for a green card if you can show that the marriage was entered into in good faith.
It is important to note that applying for a green card after marriage is a complex process, and it is important to seek the advice of an experienced immigration attorney before beginning the process.
Applying for a Green Card After Divorce
If you are a permanent resident whose divorce may affect your status, you may be able to apply for a green card after divorce. Although the situation may seem dire, there is still a chance that you can remain in the United States if you take the necessary steps and work with an immigration lawyer.
In order to apply for a green card after divorce, you will need to show that your marriage was bona fide, meaning that it was entered into in good faith and not for the purpose of evading immigration laws. You will also need to show that your divorce is final and that you are not currently married to another person.
If you can meet these requirements, you will need to file an I-751 Petition to Remove Conditions on Residence. This petition is filed jointly with your spouse; however, if you are widowed or divorced, you may be able to file a waiver. Once the I-751 is approved, you will be issued a 10-year green card.
Although the process of applying for a green card after divorce can be complex, it is important to seek professional help if your status is in jeopardy. An experienced immigration attorney will be able to guide you through the process and ensure that your rights are protected.
Applying for a Green Card After Death of a Spouse
If your spouse died after you applied for a green card, you may still be eligible to get a green card. You will need to file an I-360 self-petition as a widow or widower of a U.S. citizen or lawful permanent resident. The I-360 is filed on behalf of immigrants who are the surviving spouses of U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents (LPRs), or the parents of adult U.S. citizens, and who wish to immigrate to the United States.
Applying for a Green Card After Adoption
If you adopt a child who is a foreign national, you may be eligible to apply for a green card on their behalf. This process is known as “adoption-based immigration.”
There are two main ways to adopt a child from another country: through the U.S. government’s Intercountry Adoption Program or through a private adoption agency. The first step in either process is to file an application with the Department of Homeland Security’s U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS).
If your application is approved, you will be issued a green card for your child, which will allow them to live and work in the United States indefinitely. In some cases, you may also be able to apply for an extension of your own green card if you meet certain criteria.
If you are hoping to travel with your child on a green card extension letter in 2019, there are a few things you should know. First, it is important to understand that the extension letter is not a travel document. It simply indicates that your child’s green card has been extended for an additional six months.
This means that if you try to use the extension letter as a travel document, you will likely be denied boarding by the airline or other transportation provider. In order to avoid this situation, it is recommended that you apply for a new Green card for your child before traveling.
You can do this by filing an application with USCIS or by contacting the nearest U.S. consulate or embassy. Once you have obtained a new green card for your child, you should then be able to travel with them without any problems.
Applying for a Green Card for a Child
If you are the parent or guardian of a child who is not a U.S. citizen, you may be able to apply for a green card on their behalf.
There are two ways to do this:
1. You can include the child in your own application for a green card, if you are eligible. This is known as “including” the child in your application.
2. If you are not eligible to include the child in your own application, you can file a separate application for the child. This is known as “sponsoring” the child.
The process for sponsoring a child is different from the process for including a child in your own application, and it can be more complicated. In general, you will need to prove that you have enough income or assets to support the child, and that they will not become a “public charge” (i.e., they will not rely on government assistance). You will also need to submit evidence of your relationship to the child, such as a birth certificate or adoption decree.
If you are interested in applying for a green card on behalf of a child, we recommend that you speak with an experienced immigration attorney. They can help you determine whether you are eligible to include the child in your own application, or whether you will need to sponsor them through the separate process. They can also help you gather and prepare the necessary evidence, and guide you through every step of the process.
Applying for a Green Card for a Parent
If you are a U.S. citizen or legal permanent resident, you may be able to help your parents immigrate to the United States. One way to do this is by petitioning for a green card on their behalf.
The first step in the process is to file an I-130 petition with U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Once the petition is approved, your parent will be notified and will need to submit additional documentation, including a green card application.
In some cases, the wait time for an I-130 approval can be very long. If your parent is from a high-demand country, they may have to wait years for their turn to immigrate. As a result, USCIS has implemented a system whereby approved petitioners can request an extension of their green card application if they are still waiting for their priority date to become current.
If you are thinking of applying for a green card extension letter on behalf of your parents, there are a few things you should know. First, USCIS will only grant an extension if your parent’s priority date is within 12 months of becoming current. Second, the extension is only valid for one year and cannot be renewed. Finally, your parent will still need to complete all of the required documentation before their green card can be issued.
Applying for a Green Card for a Sibling
The United States has a complex relationship with immigration, and the process of obtaining a green card is long and difficult. If you have a family member who is a citizen or green card holder, you may be able to apply for a green card through family sponsorship.
If you are applying for a green card for a sibling, there are a few things you need to know. The first is that you will need to have an I-130 petition approved by the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). This petition is the first step in the green card application process and it establishes the familial relationship between the applicant and the sponsor.
Once the I-130 petition is approved, the applicant will need to submit additional forms and documents as part of the application process. One of these documents is an Extension Letter, which extends the validity of the I-94 Arrival/Departure Record. The Extension Letter must be applied for no later than six months before the I-94 expires.
If you are traveling on a tourist visa or another type of nonimmigrant visa, you cannot extend your stay in the United States beyond six months. If you try to do so, you may be denied entry into the United States or put into removal proceedings. However, if you have an Extension Letter, you can extend your stay in the United States for up to two years while your green card application is pending.
It’s important to note that having an Extension Letter does not guarantee that your green card application will be approved. However, it does allow you to stay in the United States while your application is pending without running afoul of immigration laws.
