    Yes the greencard is dependant on a petitioner but you can cancel your contract once out in the US and it doesn't affect your greencard. If you do a search there are a few nurses who have either done this or walked away from their agency without paying and still kept their greencard and found work in other hospitals and states
    jolly good she should be fine then

    After you have been issued with permanent residence status (greencard), its with you for life, even if you change/quit jobs. The only ways you can lose it are cited here:

    Hope this helps!

    Just on the subject of contracts. A friend of somebody I know isn't happy at her place of work. She has a contract with them and has looked into how much it would cost her to pay off her contract, and she thinks she may be able to pay it off. Apparently though the agency that got her the contract ( the contract is with the facility not with the agency) has told her that she would have her green card taken from her as it was employment-based . Has anyone heard of this??

    The agency cannot take away her green card, the said agency has no idea of what they are talking of. If the nurse met the requirements for the green card, it is not taken away. The agency that told her that should be shot and hung to dry.

    They like to scare people and there is no reason for that. She is living up to what the contract states. She has absolutely nothing to worry about.

    No, a greencard is for life, as long as you comply with the aforementioned requirements. The actual card itself expires after 10 years to protect against counterfitting and tampering.
    In 1989 INS initiated the 10 year expiration date on greencards. Even if you fail to renew it after 10 years you will not lose your permanent residency status, however you are required by law to carry evidence of your status eg. valid unexpired GC or temporary proof of status you receive at the time of filing for your renewal. After filing I-190 (application to replace a permanent residency card), you will be issued with the new one in 10-12 months, the temporary proof of status is valid for a year.

    Sorry, but green card is not for life if you do not meet the reuqirements for it. If you do not reside in the US for a certain time frame during the tiem period, it doe swnot have to be renewed by immigration, and I have seen it happen many times in the past.

    Example: children come here with their parents, and get a green card, finish school here, etc, then decide to return home for some reason, when they wish to return they need to go thru the green card process again, as they did live in the US for the required amount of time. You see this all of the time on the Philippine Forum.

    Everyone that I know that has a green card, and has not gotten US citizenship renews is every five years and they still do that, even last year.
