Mistakes and actions of immigrants that can lead to the loss of a green card

The path to the status of a permanent resident of the United States (green card holder) is difficult and long. It offers many benefits, including the ability to obtain US citizenship in the future. But the green card can be lost due to the mistakes of the immigrant, writes Miami Herald... What mistakes can cost you the right to live in the United States?

According to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), the following actions, committed intentionally or accidentally, can be interpreted as a waiver of the status of a permanent resident of the United States (waiver of the green card):

  • Moving a green card holder to another country with the intention to live there permanently.
  • Staying abroad for a long time without confirmation that the purpose of the trip was short-term. The green card is automatically canceled if trips abroad last more than one year or if immigrants move to another country. In any case, USCIS recommends applying for a re-entry permit to the United States if you plan to stay outside the United States for an extended period.
  • Waiver of filing income tax returns with the IRS and with state tax authorities.
  • Indication of "nonimmigrant" status on tax returns.
  • Lack of registration in the selective service system in the US military - Selective Service System (if the immigrant is men between the ages of 18 and 25).
What can a legal immigrant be deported for?

Under American law, the right to permanently reside in the United States can be revoked if an immigration judge decides to deport the immigrant. The reason for this decision could be serious crimes, including driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

The 2019 USCIS ruling also requires immigrants to appear before immigration court if they have abused any public benefit program. The document notes that a person can be deported if there is evidence of "fraud or willful misleading when submitting any official request or application to government agencies."

The deportation order will automatically void the green card.

Immigrants faced with this scenario should seek legal assistance because it is very difficult to regain permanent residence status after a green card is canceled. About when you need an immigration lawyer and how much his services cost, read in this stuff.

In addition, immigrants can voluntarily renounce their permanent resident status and surrender their green cards.
