My grandmothers wants to become a citizen but her Green Card is about to expire.

I’ve been trying to search posts but I’ve seen a lot of mixed messages. However, most point towards “you can still apply with an expired green card”.

So my grandmother wants to become a citizen, she’s savings money for a immigration lawyer to help her do the process.

However, her green card is going to expire in less than a month. And she has yet to begin the process of citizenship.

She often travel between Mexico and US a lot mostly to visit her mother (my great grandmother) as she’s becoming very ill lately.

I know the citizenship process can take a while. Would it be best to renew her green card since she travels a lot? If she does renew it, how long would it take to get it? Since she literally only has a month left with hers. Would she have trouble coming back into the US with an expired green card but a pending renewal?

My grandmother currently doesn’t want to pay the ~$500 renewal fee. But if she really needs it I would gladly put my money to help (currently trying to pay off my credit card debt).

Thanks for any responses! Anything help!

Edit: Not sure if this matters, just realized I should include it. She has a Sentri card that she uses to cross the border. I think she presents both green card and sentri card when crossing but I don’t really remember.

NVC Case FE Review note

Hi everyone, my family and I are under the F3 category and we just received a notice from NVC that our documents have been approved and that we are Documentarily Qualified. My only concern is this message that we received today in addition to the acceptance: ​ " [Name of petitioner] does not meet the minimum income requirement to sponsor the intending immigrants for this case. The consular officer will make a decision regarding this requirement at the time of the interview. For more information, please visit . To avoid delays, an additional Affidavit of Support Form I-864 for a joint sponsor may be submitted." ​ We already have a petitioner and a household sponsor (the household sponsor's income is above the required level), but still unsure why we received this. Has anyone else received this message? All of our documents say "Approved" on NVC. Does this mean we have to find another sponsor? Can we show the consular officer our
