Immigration Issues/GREEN CARD RENEWAL

Question
My green card was issued back in 1994 and expired 2004, I have not yet applied for citizenship however I will be soon.  Is it ok to go on to renew my Green card or should I just wait and file for citizenship.  IS it possible for me to be denied renewal or citizenship.

Answer
Since it has  been expired 3 years, I would renew it before doing citizenship, though you do not have to. You can be denied renewal or citizenship for various reasons, such as if you have had certain types of criminal convictions.

Regards,
