Customer Question
Hello is an expired...

Hello is an expired immigration card a violation if the person decides not to validate their green card?

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you filed any paperwork with the USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) yet?

The person never have?

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?

No! im going through a Divorce with my ex-wife for Domestic Violence against me, so she has countered a Restraining order on me when i Filed papers against her.. So i know for a Fact that her Green card has been Expired for Months...so my Question is to find out that after i serve her divorce papers will her Green card make a difference if she fails to complete her Documents?

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

No just wanting to know if your Documents have been expired how long do you have before its too late?

Welcome to JustAnswer! I have 34 years experience as an immigration attorney and I am here to help resolve your immigration issue. Tackling these issues can sometimes get confusing. Should you need to chat on the phone or document review, I am able to do that for an additional cost. Let me know at any time during our question and answer session if you are interested.

If she decides to file the I-751 based on being an abused spouse there is not time limit for her to file on that basis. She can file after her card has expired.

That is probably why she sought a restraining order on you, to use that abused spouse excuse for her 10 year card.

I hope that helps! Please let me know if you have any other questions. I appreciate this opportunity to help you. I do not receive a salary here at JustAnswer, and am only compensated for my time after receiving a rating. If you are very satisfied with my answer please take a moment to click on the 5 stars at the top of the page. The question thread remains open and you can ask follow-up questions.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
