Not only can you make a copy, you should make a copy of the front and back of your green card. You are required to have your green card in your possession. In the event your green card is lost or stolen it will be easier to obtain a replacement green card if you have a copy of your green card.  I have seen this happen, many times, over the years, with potential clients.

If you have only a conditional green card and you have applied to take the conditions off of the green card , via the I-751 process, you will receive a notice from USCIS extending your green card.   The extension will be for 12-18 months.   Carry this notice with your green card.  The notice will show that your green card is active as the card itself will show that it has expired.

This article is just a basic introduction to this topic. You should seek a competent Immigration Attorney to review your specific facts and circumstances before proceeding with your case.
