Reasons why you may lose your Green Card in the United States

Having a Green Card is one of the most important steps for people who have arrived in the United States and want to live and work there.

In fact, this document means that you have fulfilled the requirements to live in that country and start a new life. You can enter and leave that country whenever you want, with a Green Card, without fear of immigration authorities stopping you and denying access to American soil.

Another advantage is that you have the right to request financial assistance sponsored by the federal government. You are also eligible to receive Social Security and Medicare benefits, as well as supplemental security income.

However, you should not forget that legal permanent resident status can be revoked. However, in many cases, if possible, you will lose the Green Card. Here we will tell you what are the reasons why they can “take away” your Green Card in the United States.

Why will you lose your Green Card?

The first thing you need to know is that if you fail to follow the rules established by the country, your Green Card will be withdrawn. The same will happen if an immigration judge issues a final order of deportation against you. You can also lose your Permanent Residence if you commit a crime or fraud.

The following sections of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) explain the reasons why you may be removed from the country.

-Voting as a purported US citizen.

-Failure to complete a change of address form on time.

-Failure to establish a permanent residence or abandon a permanent residence.

– Commit a crime.

-Committing fraud in the Green Card application process, such as fake marriage.

Other reasons, for example, include smuggling, trafficking, drug addiction, domestic violence, harassment, falsification of registration or documents, and participation in terrorist acts.

Meanwhile, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has clarified that you can lose your status if you leave it intentionally. These are the reasons.

-Moving to another country and intending to live there permanently.

-Declare yourself a “nonimmigrant” on your US tax returns.

-Remain outside the United States for an extended period of time, unless it is a temporary absence.

Finally, USCIS reminds that any person can be subject to the revocation process within the first five years of becoming a legal permanent resident. This is how it evaluates the current law.

-It is determined that you are not eligible to obtain a Green Card at the time your application is approved.

-You cannot qualify for a Green Card under any other legal provision.
