Default Green card renewal

Hello,
This is really a reminder in case anyone is in the same boat - i know i nearly missed this for my middle daughter. I have just applied for GC renewal for my 14 yr old son, even though his current card does not expire until 2026. The green card must be renewed when they turn 14. If you apply within 30 days after their 14th birthday, cost is $85

Technically, you didn't really apply for a renewal of your daughter's green card. As a new 14 year old, she is required to have a green card that shows a current photo. Many kids under 14 don't even have photos on their cards.

It's for biometrics - they can't/don't do them before the age of 14.
The old card had a photo on it , the new one has an updated one.

If memory serves me correctly, age 14 is to get fingerprinted.

That was certainly our experience even as tourists. Our younger son had his 14th birthday during our fact finding trip using vwp six years ago and the lack of incoming fingerprints caused a brief and minor hiccup when we checked in to depart the USA.
