Default question on removal of condition on residency and travel abroad

My wife holds a green card and we are just about to submit I-751 form to the INS to
remove the conditions on green card status.. I am a US Citizen and she got a green
card couple of years ago based on my citizenship status (having applied for K1
fiancee visa and then after we got married converted to a permanent resident
status).. we now have a son who was born in the United States

My wife now wants to travel abroad with our Son in the next few weeks but we are
worried because her green card expires in October 24th of this year..

What should we do to allow her to go abroad in October and come back peacefully some
time in December even though her green card expires on October 24th?

thanks in advance

Just bumped into a page about that subject this afternoon. Read:

Q. How soon should I apply to renew my expiring Green Card?

R. You can apply up to six months prior to the expiration date of your card
(indicated on the front of the card). However, there is no need to rush to
apply for a new card too far in advance since you will be issued temporary
proof of status the same day you apply in-person for your new Green Card.

Apply with I751 threee months before card expires.

Just before card expires, go to local INS office to have her passport stamped that
her status is resident and that her I-751 application is pending. Take with you the
receipt that you will receive for your I-751 application.

She can then travel

This applies to renewals of regular green cards, not to removal of conditions on
conditional GC's. You can apply to remove your conditions no sooner than Ninety (90)
days from the date of expiry. What I would suggest is that you both file the i-751
immediately. I don't know why you waited so long! Hopefully INS would have given
her the first NOA and extended her status for a year by then, and she would have a
stamp in her passport she can travel with.

If no response by the time she is ready to travel, I would strongly suggest she DOES
NOT TRAVEL. A vacation can wait, and it is not worth risking her green card.
