Why is USCIS asking you to return your green card?

What is the expiration date on your green card?

Why is USCIS asking you to return your green card?

After he filed for divorce he also made an appointment at the immigration office and gave a writing statement that we where getting divorce and a copy of the documents he filed (according to him). My visa expired on January 30 of this year. He filed for divorce about 2 or 3 weeks after we had filed to remove the conditions on my temporary green card. I don't exactly remember what the reason why the immigration office wanted my old green card because my husband took the letter after he had hidden it for 2 1/2 months. But I haven't sent my green card and I haven't done anything because I'm little scare. :(

From your statement it seems that its not a mutual and friendly seperation and he is out to get you. Otherwise he would not have hidden your GC, went out of the way to personally go and explain the divorce scenario to the USCIS, to further complicate things for you. What I don't understand is that why would USCIS ask you to send your GC back. Haven't heard of it till now. The normal course of action by USCIS should have been to deny your case and initiate removal proceedings against you. You should speak to an attorney ASAP.

My apologies for not reading your post carefully. It doesn't make any sense on part of the USCIS. Asking you to return your Green Card, expired or not. They usually take action on their own. God knows what you husband has been saying to them. I wish I had any info to help you, but with little details, I doubt anybody would be able to tell you what to do other than to try seeking the help of an attorney.

I'm sorry to hear this. It is sad that when people are hurt, they turn to desperate and vindictive means. I went through a divorce after receiving my conditional green card (about 1.5 years after I got the conditional green card). During the divorce, my ex wife actually brought up the whole conditional green card as a threat and to intimidate me. Well, it so happens that after the divorce was finalized, I went ahead and filed for a removal of conditions through a waiver using a lawyer. I sent in my application December 8th, 2008 and my case was approved June 13th, 2009.

Get you an attorney. But make sure you retain copies of documents that prove the validity of your marriage.

My GC already expired in January of this year. Do I have to wait for the divorce to be done before I can apply for my residency? And would I apply for a GC or a work permit I already had my GC for two years and we filed for the permanet GC unfortunatelly I never got it because my husband filed for divorce and went out of his way to go to immigration too.

Any recommendations for an attorney? I live in Orange county (california)

you should call into USCIS now, get an ISO (see http://www.dhs.gov/xabout/structure/gc_1221837986181.shtm#5 ) and inquire about casefile status for the removal of conditions case.


Sometimes my language usage seems confusing - please feel free to 'read it twice', just in case !

Did you do biometrics (fingerprints) not long after filing for ROC with your husband? If you did biometrics already you could have been approved because they were approving fast out of CSC at the time you applied for ROC. Like I just said in another post he could very well be hiding your 10 year green card from you and the fact that you were approved. I have never heard of USCIS asking someone to return an expired green card by mail. You should listen to Darnell and contact USCIS about your case.

I never heard of USCIS requiring to turn in a green card for this reason.

Contact an attorney and file a motion in the court.

The judge will not have you removed during the proceedings.
