If married and have a green card that has expired there is one thing you can do. You will have to go get another green card while still married.

If your green card has expired and you are not married then you will have to apply for another one. You will have to go to the DMV and start the paper work.

Get full citizenship or get married and live in another country!

You have to have your green card for 5yrs or 3yrs if married to a US citizen. Then you have to apply for US citizenship and once approved you can apply for US a passport.

None - you need a passport. A Green Card is not a substitute for a passport.

Your question does not make sense. You need to be a US citizen to have an American passport. If you have a green card and an expired Russian passport, contact a Russian embassy in the US and they should be able to issue you a travel letter or stamp your passport so you may travel back to Russia. But returning to the US is another problem.

A passport from your country of citizenship

No, you have to renew your green card, or you will be turned away

Not from the USA, you must be a citizen in order to obtain a US passport. You can travel with your country of origen's passport and the green card as long as the passport is not expired Are there any exceptions to this rule, that is one must be a US Citizen in order to obtain a US passport?

Getting US passport is only possible by US citizens and not green card holders.

No, it is not mandatory for green card holders to posses a machine readable passport (as the green card is machine readable).

No. You can not be deported for an expired Green Card. You can be deported for an expired Visa. You can over-stay your Visa, it's illegal in the U.S. and pretty much every other country. However, if your Green Card has expired (which is not the same as a visa), you should go to the local INS office and renew it and do it the legal way.

Maybe, you will need an approved I-601 before the USCIS officer could adjudicade your I-485 ( green card petition)

Yes, you can. You just have to take your green card along with your Iranian passport.


Per immigration law, YES you have to renew the green card to be a legal resident.

You have to have your green card & passport.

You may be able to obtain a passport from your country of citizenship, but not from the country that has issued you a green card: passports identify and verify citizenship. Visit your country's consulate if you're not living in your country of citizenship, or the passport office in your country of citizenship to verify your rights to a passport. It will be important to disclose that you are holding a green card from another country.

Yes. A green card is merely a document showing you're legally allowed to work in the US. A passport is for identification purposes only.

You said "expired passport." Did you mean expired visa? The U.S. doesn't care much about expired passports issued by other countries. If he was issued a green card, he was living here legally, assuming that no fraud was committed in obtaining it. I can't imagine that you can get into trouble for what he did, assuming you committed no fraud in helping him get his green card. I suppose that someone might say that the marriage was entered into solely for the purpose of obtaining residency status for your husband, but that should have come up BEFORE the green card was issued, not now. Having said all that, I wonder what exactly you are going to report, and to whom?

Get a new passport , showing your married name. As long as you have the documents needed like an authenticated marriage certificate then it wont be a problem

You need to have a valid greencard and an American passport to return to America after your visit. I'm not sure. Maybe, most likely. Or you could just consider getting the passport 'renewed' Recources - I am Russian

Safe bet is for you to have both your green card and a valid passport ready when crossing border.

No. NTSA guidelines require a passport (foreign or US), US passport card, green card or US drivers license or non-drivers license.
