Urgent ! Former Legal resident now reapplying CR1

I need help please.


I have an approved Petition , and am already working on Packet 3 with NVC. We are filing in Germany ( DCF )

My Problem now:

I have been a LPR from 1992 until 1996, but i never returned my GC or filed an Form I-407, simply because back then i did not have that information.

I left the USA to get away of my abusive Husband, and once i returned to Germany it never occured to me, that there could be any actions i need to take.

After researching here and on other Sites, i learned that this fact might jeapordize the Outcome of my Interview...

Would it be of any help for me to step forward and just mail the expired GC with Form I 407 and an explanation Letter to NVC with the Documents for Step 2 ????

Or should i take a Chance and wait to see if they even notice this fact ??


PS: I have never set foot into USA after 1996 ! Which i am sure USCIS and / Or NVC can verify with ease.

The NVC should not be involved with your case since the petition was filed at an overseas office.


Your prior Green Card would have long since expired and it was not renewed; this should not be an issue.

Hey Tine68,


How did things go with the 407-issue? I'm facing the similar situation and I'm a bit confused about 407 since it states clearly not having immigrating purpose, but we in fact are in the middle of the immigration process.
