Default Second ten year GC renewal

I was a member here many years ago but for some reason my account was deleted.

I had my first 10 year GC issued back in December 2009 and it expires this coming December. I guess I need to complete an I551(?) for a further 10 years?

I am a little OCD about such things and wanted to reach out and see if others can advise me as to whether the process is a little more of a formality at this stage. i.e. less rigorous, no interview etc.

My GC was a marriage based one ( we married in 2006) and we are still happily married, no contact with police and up to date with taxes etc.

Am I right in thinking it is pretty much a slam dunk? I know the landscape is changing a little with the Govt raising the bar on GC issuances so wanted to check.

Many thanks for any input.

Apparently I have no way to edit a post once made. I meant to say I90 above, NOT I551.

Many thanks, much appreciated. Looking online it looks like it is a long process, many months to get the renewal card.

Apropos citizenship, without getting into too much detail there are major ramifications in doing so from a tax perspective further down the road which I would prefer to avoid. I have looked into it though.

.... there are tax ramifications of not being a US citizen when one spouse dies.....

....... also, voting is an important part of being a full time permanent resident of a country ....

Yes I know the tax implications. This is something that is obviously personal to each individual.

Thanks again for answering the original question...
