I obtained the card through my employer in April 2016. I am

I obtained the green card through my employer in April 2016. I am now considering a job offer in Asia but don't want to loose my green card. I know I can apply for a re-entry permit for up to two years abroad. Questions: 1) can the 2 year re-entry permit be requested again after the first two years without losing the green card, or should I come back and work in the US for sometime before re-applying? 2) If the employer in asia is willing to accept this solution, can i work 6 months of the year there and spend the other 6 months in the US for several years and if so do I have to apply for a re-entry permit every 6 months? Thank you.JA: Have you filed any paperwork with the USCIS (U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services) yet?Customer: no ,i am just collecting preliminary info.JA: Have you talked to a lawyer yet?Customer: noy yet.JA: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?Customer: I have italian passport.

I have removed the conditions on my Green Card and it

I have removed the conditions on my Green Card and it expires in 10 years. It has been 6 years now since I came to the U.S and never left the country. I want to travel back home to visit my mom for couple of months and comeback.Do I need a re-entry permit to enter the U.S even if I have a 10 years Green Card? If yes, is it Form I-131 Travel Document? If yes, the I-131 form is asking me to provide the U.S Consul in the Country I'm traveling to. Which means I'm supposed to get my re-entry permit from there. What if for some reason they did not send it? I do not want to be stuck there waiting for it to arrive and worst cases it does not arrive.Is there a way to get the re-entry permit while i'm here in the U.S? so I feel safe :)Thanks a lotI live in Miami and my mom lives in Saudi Arabia where I come from.

My friend Mario is a LPR. He requested and was approved for a re-entry permit. He is currently in Mexico. It expires in September of this year. He is currently in Mexico. His mother has cancer, and he was just told that his mother only has about a month to live. He needs to stay in Mexico with his mother. Is it possible for him to request another re-entry permit or to ask for an extension for his current re-entry permit? If so, can he request it without having to come back to the US?

I am from England and I married an American citizen. We

Hi i am from England and I married an American citizen. We moved to America in June 2013 and applied and received my green card in May 2014. Soon after my husband decided to study in Israel and so we moved in July 2014. My lawyer said come back within the year each year to maintain your green card. July 2015 we did for a few weeks and again now we are in Los Angeles. We arrived a week ago.At LAX I realised my green card had expired (may this year)I had forgotten to apply to remove the conditions.And we are planning to be studying in Israel still for 3/4 more years. Also we had a baby March this year.Questions- Recently I was told I was supposed to be visiting the u.s every 6 months is that true- I was told I may be deported.- Can I abandon my green card and reapply when we are ready to live here? That's what I prefer to do.- Do I have to file the form to remove the conditions or will they think it's a fraudulent marriage ?- It's very hard for us to stay in the u.s for the next few weeks to file the form and to keep coming back and forth so what do we do ?Our flight back to Israel is this Wednesday. Please reply asap so I know whether to change my flight back. Thanks
