Regarding Form I-485: a family member (without internet or lawyer) needs help with Part 3.B.

Asked almost 2 years ago - Shoreline, WA

A family member applicant (I-485) has an adult child with an expired, but not surrendered, green card. For Part 3.B, does the applicant leave the space for an "A# (if any)" blank? Or does he fill in the A#? In either case, will the adult child be sought? The adult child now lives outside the country; how should he surrender his green card?

The adult child needs to discuss with an immigration attorney how to best handle thier options if they no longer wish to maintain permanent residence.
