My Green card expires on December 17th 2017. Do I need to renew my green card?

Response 1: Yes, you do because you do not know how much longer it would take for your naturalization application to be processed.

When I go for my finger prints will I get temporary extension of green card while my extension is being processed?

Response 2: Unfortunately, no you would not. You would obtain a replacement card after your application and fingerprints have been processed.

I am sorry that I do not have better news for you.

A positive rating to my response is appreciated so that I can receive credit for responding to your post. There is no additional cost to you for giving a positive rating.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

ElaineAtlanta, GA

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.

TonyApopka, FL

Not only did he answer my Michigan divorce question but was also able to help me out with it, too. I have since won my legal case on this matter and thank you so much for it.
