Effective Sept. 26, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is automatically extending the validity of Permanent Resident Cards (also known as Green Cards) to 24 months for lawful permanent residents who file Form I-90, Application to Replace Permanent Resident Card.

Lawful permanent residents who properly file Form I-90 to renew an expiring or expired Green Card may receive this extension. Form I-90 receipt notices had previously provided a 12-month extension of the validity of a Green Card.

USCIS has updated the language on Form I-90 receipt notices to extend the validity of a Green Card for 24 months for individuals with a newly filed Form I-90. On Sept. 26, USCIS began printing amended receipt notices for individuals with a pending Form I-90.

These receipt notices can be presented with an expired Green Card as evidence of continued status. This extension is expected to help applicants who experience longer processing times, because they will receive proof of lawful permanent resident status as they await their renewed Green Card.

If you no longer have your Green Card and you need evidence of your lawful permanent resident status while waiting to receive your replacement Green Card, you may request an appointment at our office, and we can assist you to obtain an (ADIT) stamp after you file Form I-90 or with any issues with your greencard.


A Las Vegas judge ruled this week that the Nevada Board of Pharmacy can no longer regulate marijuana.

During a court hearing last month, District Judge Joe Hardy Jr. ruled that the board’s classification of cannabis as a Schedule 1 drug — on the same level as heroin and LSD — was unconstitutional. Hardy had declined to rule on the board’s overall regulatory power until an order filed Wednesday, in which he ruled that the board cannot regulate marijuana, cannabis or cannabis derivatives.

Hardy ruled that the board has no power to regulate marijuana because in 2019, the Nevada Legislature created legislation referred to as “Title 56” that regulates marijuana, and included the creation of the Cannabis Compliance Board.

“It is important to reiterate that Title 56 created a comprehensive regulatory scheme that excluded the Pharmacy Board entirely,” the order states.

Brett Kandt, a lawyer representing the Board of Pharmacy, declined to comment on Thursday.
