My wife came here on a Fiance Visa Dec 2008 and we were married in Jan 2009. She receive her green card a few months later. It is set to expire Aug 2011. She is planning to travel to her country next year from early July and returning the end of August during which time her green card will have expired.
- If she applies for the permanent green card but has not received it by the time she leave will they give her something temporary to allow a smooth reentry into the US?
-Given that her green card expires 8/2011 when should I apply for the new one and how long does it take and how much does it cost?
