Renewing Green Card after an arrest

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hello. I have a friend whi has yo renew his green card. He was arrested in Atlanta for no drivers license. My question is, if he will need documents from the court showing the outcome of that arrest when he goes and applies for the renewal? Also are there any consequences for his arrest? Can they deny him his greencard? Please someone help. Thanks.

There is no interview* for an I-90 GC renewal. Are you referring to the ROC interview for conditional LPRs (they initially receive a GC with 2 year validity)?

*USCIS will conduct a routine background check with his biometrics. In my opinion, his arrest will not affect his I-90 GC renewal.

If speaking of the I-751 then this is a required disclosure.  Failure to disclose is a no no.

He is not removing conditions. He has had greencard for about 9 years. He’s due for renewal in 2019. He was arrested about 5 years ago. I belive when the time comes there’s is a question about previous arrests?

I find looking at the actual form to be beneficial.  I don't believe there is a question

No such questions on the I-90; here is the paper form: https://www.uscis.gov/system/files_force/files/form/i-90.pdf?download=1

Its true there is no question on the i90 but you do go for biometrics where any criminal issues will be discovered.

 

Driving w/o a license is not something that would impact his ability to renew/maintain his GC.


Yes, often I seem like I consider myself the sheriff of VJ riding around a high horse, but I assure you I make plenty of mistakes and are grateful to those who correct me, and yes I know the TOS does not require you to actually read before replying. But VJ forums contents are generated by its users and if we as users want it to remain to be a source of credible, verifiable information, and advice -its up to us to keep it that way by taking care to read and reply carefully.
