Hello! I am a licensed attorney, admitted to practice in state and federal court. I have a nearly 100% satisfaction rating so all that means is that you can count on me to help today. According to USCIS:

You must replace your Green Card if:

  • You were issued a card valid for 10 years that has either expired or will expire within six months.

  • You have a Permanent Resident Card that does not have an expiration date on it.

  • Your card has been lost, stolen, or damaged.

  • You were issued a card valid for 10 years before you turned 14 years old, and it will not expire before your 16th birthday.

  • Your card was issued with incorrect data (name, DOB, issued date) due to USCIS administrative error.

You also may replace your Green Card if:

  • Your name or other biographic information has been legally changed.

  • You have taken up commuter status. This means you commute regularly to work in the United States but reside in Canada or Mexico.

In order to replace (or renew) your Green Card (Permanent Resident Card), you must:

  • Complete the Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card. Review the form instructions for directions on how to complete the form.

  • Submit the Filing Fee(s). Include the appropriate filing fees (including the biometric services fee, if applicable).

  • Submit Evidence. Include all required evidence and any supporting documentation.

  • Sign and File the Form I-90. File the application at the correct filing location according to form instructions. Any application that is not signed will be rejected with a notice that the application is deficient.

If you want to receive an e-Notification, complete Form G-1145, E-Notification of Application/Petition Acceptance and clip it to the first page of your application.

So, one of the things that you probably want to do is contact USCIS to discuss this. Even if you don't remember whether it was permanent without an expiration date or whether it had an expiration date, they will be able to tell you. additionally, that is only one of the reasons. If your card was lost, stolen, or damaged then you have to get a replacement, regardless of whether there was an expiration date. Did you have any other questions for me?

what do you recomend me to do?
Immigration Lawyer: Legal Eagle, Lawyer replied 3 months ago

My best recommendation would be to contact USCIS and find out how you can get a replacement. If you provide them enough information, they will be able to tell you the status of your green card, whether it has an expiration date, and they can also direct you on how to get replacement. In your case, it seems as if because it was lost, regardless of an expiration date, you should be able to get a replacement from USCIS. From my understanding, you should expect a long wait time, but getting a green card replacement can really help you get back and forth into the United States without any issue.
