His card has NO expiration date. My sister is an immigration lawyer in London (UK) and she is the one that alerted me to the fact that it might need to be replaced but I do not think that she is correct as I called INS and they said that he does not need the newer one.I want to make sure before we travel abroad. Thanks.
His card is the old kind with no expiration date. USCIS has recommended that LPRs renew their cards to the 10-year variety. The people you called at USCIS (INS) -- was it the customer service number? They don't always tell you the correct thing. I don't think you'll have a problem reentering with the old card, but make an Infopass appointment and speak to a live clerk at the counter.
