QUESTION: Hello Robert,
Thanks for the answer.
But he does not have a Permanent Resident Card or Social Security Card.
He can't apply for a renewal of his passport without this documents.
What to do?

Regards,
Roxy


Answer
Then the only way to do it, is to file for Adjustment of Status. He does not need a valid passport to file or be approved, he just needs to show proof of legal entry which is confirmed by I-94.

Once he gets his work permit as part of the process, he can apply for a social and then maybe they will make a new passport for him. If not, then Immigration can approve his residence application and then when he gets the car din the mail, he can get a new passport.


Regards,

Robert
