Default UK Passport Question

I am a Green card holder and my British Passport expires in June this year. I am travelling to the UK in March/April - will I have any trouble getting back into the US since my Passport will have less than 6 months on it when I get back?

I plan on renewing it when I get back, just wanted to make sure I would be Ok returning to the US with my GC and soon to expire PP.

Thanks,
Richard.

No because the validity of the passport only effects how long you are granted admission for if arriving as a visitor. You are a LPR

You might want to consider renewing while in the UK, if you have time. It will be cheaper.

It depends.

Costs a hell of a lot more renewing it in the US, is that worth a day out of your plans? Probably get it done in the mail in 2 weeks though.

It's $205 to do it in the US isnt it? That is more than worth a day of my holiday to me.
