Is it required to present a work permit for the green card interview when it comes to a special case (VAWA)?

I have received the work permit with parole 6 months ago. I am granted to stay in the USA through a special case (VAWA). I am currently waiting to receive the date and time for my green card interview. I have not been able to find my working permit for the last few months and I can not apply for a replacement card online. I don’t know what is the right thing to do on this case.

At this juncture you would not be required to present a work permit in order to try and receive the green card that you want in order for you to stay in this country. I would simply make the application for the visa status you want and hope to receive it. Perhaps your current employer or past employers may have a copy of the work permit so that you can get a copy of it when such needs to be presented.
