United States Citizenship and Immigration Services may request supporting documentation from you to approve your Form I-90 application. When you file an application to renew or replace your green card, an original or copy of your current green card must be sent with the application. There are also other documents that you may have to copy and send to USCIS such as:
- A court order that proves that your name has legally changed since you received the last green card;
- A marriage certificate to prove a name change;
- An adoption decree;
- A police report stating that your green card was stolen.
All copied documents must be registered with the proper civil authority. You should be ready to provide the originals upon request from USCIS. There is no need to send your fingerprints or paper photographs to USCIS. Instead, USCIS will appoint an interview to take your fingerprints and a photograph.
