Assuming you do not apply for a reentry permit before you leave,the maximum stay is 1 year. If you apply for a reentry permitbefore you leave, the maximum stay is 2 years. If …you wish to stay longer than two years, you will need both areentry permit and a returning resident visa. You must apply forthe reentry permit before you depart the US. You don't necessarilyneed to receive it before you leave. If you stay longer than 2 years, there is no guarantee you will beable to get a returning resident visa. Note: your US green card may be taken away if your travelrecord suggests that you reside outside the US more than in the US.So, coming to the US for two weeks every 11 months will at somepoint result in cancellation of your green card and an inability toreturn to the US using the green card.
YES Although the card has expired your immigration status remains unchanged and it's a simple matter to complete the USCIS I-90 form (and pay the fee) to renew it. I-9 ver…fication requires an Alien number. Here's some more info: http://www.shipmangoodwin.com/6524
People would get arrested.
Having a Green card entitles a person the status of a permanent resident. This means that the green card holder can live and work in the US permanently. The permanent residenc…y status is for the entire lifetime of that person. So this means that you can stay in the US foe your entire lifetime provided that you renew your green card periodically (once in 10 yrs)
NONE. leave mexicans!
If you are a conditional resident 90 days before it expires you need to adjust status and get the green card with 10 years validity. Permanent lawful resident can stay as long… as they want provided they renew their green card which is valid only for 10 years.
The green card which is got as a result of marriage to a green card holder is the conditional one and valid for 2 years. 90 days before it expires the Form I-485 should be use…d to adjust status from conditional status to permanent resident status and a permanent green card valid for 10 years is issued to the applicant. The green card which the alien gets through employer or a relative is valid for 10 years which has to be renewed.
Of course you can. I think you can go uptil 11 months. On the 12th month you lose your card
approx. six months.
It depends on how you are applying for green card. The US green card can be applied through family member, employment or marriage. A family member who is already a green card …holder can petition for alien relative using the Form I-130 and once the priority date becomes current the alien can get the visa and enter US as green card holder. Next is through employer who has to petition and green card can be got either with or without labor certification. Lastly after an alien marries a US citizen or green card holder and is petitioned with Form I-130, the alien can adjust status to permanent resident after two years of successful marriage using Form I-485.
Immigration status referred to as lawful permanent residency authorizes a person on a permanent basis to live and work in the US. A lawful permanent resident(green card holder…) can apply for US citizenship after five years of residency, or naturalization, after five years of residency.
As a green card holder you are allowed to make short trips abroad for less than 180 days at a stretch. In case you plan to stay outside US for more than a year you would requi…re to apply for a reentry permit which is valid for 2 years with which you can enter US.
You should be out no more than 6 months and definitely no more than a year, unless you have already applied for a 2 year travel document.
Green card holders can travel abroad for a maximum period of 180 days on each trip. If you need to stay outside longer for employment or religious purposes you should apply fo…r reentry permit using the Form I-131 travel document which is valid for 2 years. Also you can use the Form N-470 meanwhile to preserve residence for naturalization process.
Yes, but if the brother is not 245(i) qualified, there is nothingthe citizen brother can do to make illegal brother legal.
