About Form I-407

 Form I-407 allows you to formally record with USCIS your decision to voluntarily abandon your status as a lawful permanent resident (LPR) of the United States. Use of the form also ensures you are informed of the right to a hearing before an immigration judge and that you have knowingly, willingly, and affirmatively waived that right. There is no filing fee.

The Department of Homeland Security is required to provide to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) the names of individuals who choose to abandon their LPR status. If you file this form with us, we will provide only your name and the filing date to the IRS.
