    Default Green Card Renewal

    Im a permanent resident and am looking to renew my green card. However I have a Drug Felony on my record that I was convicted of posession of a controlled substance 3 years ago. Is it probable that I will have my green card renewal DENIED? I'm getting different answers from different lawyers. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    That's potentially a huge problem, so I suggest that you consult an immigration lawyer. It can make a big difference if the charge wouldn't have been a felony had you been federally charged, even if it was a state law felony.

    Indeed, the recent Supreme Court case, Lopez, has changed the law. You have to present the criminal disposition of your case to an immigration attorney familiar with the drugs issues.
