Legal Answers
2 Questions Answered
Q. Do I have to stay in the US until I get my green card in the mail or can I have it mailed to me in my home country?
A: In order to show that you established residence, it is prudent to stay until you get the physical card, get an unrestricted social security card and a local driver's license or non-driver ID in the state where you are a resident, and open a US bank account. If you are not planning to live permanently in the United States, or plan to undertake a temporary but potentially lengthy absence as soon as residence is granted, you should consult with an immigration lawyer immediately.
Q. A 75 yr old,never committed a crime has a green card from 1961 with no expiration date.Should they reapply?
A: No, if you have one of the old indefinite-validity green cards, you are not required to apply for a new green card with an expiration date, although DHS employees will regularly try to convince you that you must. However, if you are 75 years old, it is probably a good idea to apply for naturalization to become a US citizen.
