Charlie is correct. Your passport can be expired, that is fine, but bring it anyway as they will want to see any entry/ exit stamps to verify physical presence in the USA.

How about when your foreign passport expires when you have an EAD card, but before you get your green card. Your biological father refuses to sign for a new passport because you are still a minor, but yet complaints that you won't come down and visit him.

You bring that to your interview, and that quickly verifies why you couldn't make any trips from the date you received your green card. Makes that part of your interview very easy. No law that states if have to maintain a foreign passport. If your I-751 processing with that one year extension expires, then if you have a current valid passport, can put in an I-551 stamp so you are here legally.

But if you don't have that, can give you a I-94 that does the same thing. After you receive your certificate, no law that says you need a US passport either, just can't travel abroad without one.

No worries - others are correct. The expired passport is not an issue!

No problem at all, you are fine. Take your expired passport with you to the interview. They will check for your travel dates. It is not important that the passport has expired.
