Customer Question
Hi, My mother's green...

Hi, My mother's green card expired 6 months ago and we did not renew as we had applied for her citizenship, can we renew the green card? Thx

Lawyer's Assistant: What steps have you taken? Have you filed any paperwork with the U.S. government?

For N 400 yes, she filed, gave interview, passed interview but application denied

Lawyer's Assistant: Have you talked to a lawyer about the green card?

Not yet

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

What are the best steps, should we wait for the official notice which will be in mail within the next few days or should we appeal OR renew green card? Thanks for your help

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.
