How Hard Is It To Get A Replacement Green Card?
Replacing your lost or stolen green card while in the U.S. is easy. You can file your green card replacement application online through the USCIS website or the mail.
The process could be more complicated if your card is lost or stolen when you are outside the U.S. You may need to lodge a report to the nearest police department and then reach out to the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate for further instructions. Working with a green card lawyer in such an instance can make the process faster and less stressful.
As with any other immigration process, replacing your green card involves paperwork that could prove tricky for many people. Getting an experienced immigration lawyer to help you can help to simplify the process and reduce the likelihood of errors in your application.
