According to United States legislation, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) may deny renewal or replacement of your green card. The most common reasons for rejecting your application form (Form I-90) are as follows:
- You have a criminal record. If you were engaged in serious criminal activity, you should consult with an immigration lawyer before you file your Form I-90 application. Such criminal records as disorderly conduct or parking fines usually are ignored.
- You provided incorrect or false information on the application form. No refunds for filing and biometric services fees will be issued in this case.
- You used an incorrect form to apply for green card renewal or replacement. If you are a conditional permanent resident, and your green card has expired or will expire in 90 days, you must not file Form I-90. Instead, you can only file Form I-751 or Form I-829 to remove the conditions for your residentship.
- You were ordered removed from the U.S. by a court. Your removal or deportation from the United States is a very serious reason for denial in renewing your green card. We recommend you to consult a lawyer.
