What to do regarding leaving the country during a green card extension?
Question Details: My daughter won a scholarship to study 6 weeks in Paris this summer. Her green card will expire while she is studying is away. What she can do to re-enter U.S. without a problem?
You can apply to renew the green card before she leaves. As long as this is done while she is physically in the US and she goes through the fingerprinting process, then she can leave. She can also have her passport stamped with the temporary stamp showing her green card status once USCIS has proof that she has filed for the extension. That stamp will be sufficient for her to reenter the US even if her actual green card is expired. Please feel free to contact me directly if you have any additional questions.
