What happens if I don't renew my Green Card

Being a Lawful Permanent Resident with a green card that has expired or without a green card (in case you lost it or it got stolen) can cause you some disadvantages. Here we mention the most important reasons (among many others) why you should always renew or replace your green card.

1. You cannot apply for a new job: If you are a Lawful Permanent Resident and you are thinking to apply to a new job with an expired green card or without a green card the chances of not being hired are 99% despite that you may be very qualified for the job. Employers cannot legally accept applicants whose green cards are expired or applicants who don´t have a green card. So it is highly probable that an expired/lost green card will cause a disqualification to a new job opportunity.

2. Problems re-entering the United States: Lawful Permanent Residents who travel abroad and want to re-entry de U.S. are required a valid non-expired green card that proves their status as Lawful Permanent Residents. If your green card is lost or expired and you plan to re-entry the U.S. you will be required to pay a steep re-entry fee, go through significant delays or even more significant problems to re-entry the U.S. Even though the process to renew/replace a green card can take up to 5 months, in just 3 weeks after you file your application you will receive a receipt notice from the government which you can use as a valid replacement of your green card, that means that you can also use it to re-entry the U.S.

3. Driver´s license problems: You cannot apply for a driver´s license or renew it if your green card  is expired or you have lost it. The DMV cannot legally grant a driver´s license to a Lawful Permanent Resident without a valid/non-expired green card.

4. Mortgage Loans problems: You cannot apply for a mortgage loan to buy a house since most mortgage lenders will require a valid non-expired green card.

5. U.S. Citizenship: One of the requirements to apply for U.S. Citizenship is to be a Lawful Permanent Resident with a valid non-expired green card. So if you are planning to apply for Naturalization and become a U.S. Citizen you must first renew/replace your green card.

Renewing or replacing your green card is a process you´ll only do every 10 years and so is the payment for renewing/replacing your green card. Do you prefer to go through all the disadvantages we have mention above instead of doing a payment you only make every 10 years?. The decision is up to you.
