2 Answers from Attorneys
Hello. If you are outside the U.S.A., you should contact the nearest U.S. Consulate. Within the U.S., you may apply for a replacement of certain documents. If someone is knowingly withholding your green card and papers from you, I recommend you confer privately with an attorney, You are welcome to contact me for assistance. Know that generally: Some attorneys are available seven days for emergency legal needs. Many attorneys will speak initially at no charge. Then, if legal work is performed, some attorneys will provide a reduced fee for financial hardship. Some attorneys may also assist you in a limited scope manner to conserve legal costs. All the best.

It depends on what you mean by "recover". Did they lose their documents or greencard? Are they in the United States?
Generally, the person can file a FOIA request with USCIS to obtain a copy of their file, & they can file Form I-90 for a replacement greencard.
These forms can be obtained at the USCIS website at www.uscis.gov & under the "forms" link.
