To replace a lost, stolen, or damaged green card, file Form I-90, but don’t use it if your card expires within 90 days or to renew a conditional green card. Expect a government fee and a wait of 8-12 months for a new card.

Include your dependent children who gained conditional resident status within 90 days of you in your Form I-751, with additional biometrics fee and documents. If they acquired status more than 90 days after you, file a separate Form I-751 for them.

After filing Form I-751, USCIS sends Form I-797, Notice of Action, within 4-6 weeks. This receipt extends your resident status by 48 months and, along with your expired green card, serves as proof of validity. Expect a biometrics appointment notice within a month. I-751 processing usually takes 14-24 months, though it can vary. Approval leads to a 10-year green card. Check USCIS for local processing times. Some cases may require an interview with your spouse, but a well-prepared petition might waive this. Decisions typically follow soon after any interview.
