Hi all!

My wife’s 18 months extension expired and we got an infopass appointment at our local USCIS office. They did give her an one year extension stamp on her passport. We were just thinking earlier….they took away her expired green card. Is that correct? I’ve seen people still has possession of their expired green card.


please let me know and thank you all!

Yes, this happened to my wife as well.  If your wife has an interview at the ROC stage or decides to naturalize, the IO will have her sign an affidavit that the expired GC was taken by USCIS.

Hopefully you have a copy of each side of the green card.  

Not really needed for anything though.
