What Should LPRs Do If They are Asked to Relinquish Their Green Cards and Sign Abandonment of LPR Status Form I-407
According to the American Immigration Lawyers Association, an LPR may be requested to surrender their green card when they return to the US. The LPR shouldn’t automatically comply. The LPR doesn’t lose their LPR status just because they spent time abroad. A person keeps his/her LPR status until there is a final removal order.
