  • Permanent resident staying more than 6 months out side USA

    I need some one to help me with the following problem. My mother is a gc and went country for a visit. She wants to stay there longer than six months and she also have her returning resident permit. But this will count, as per INS as a gc you can not stay out of US more than 6 months. If she stays there over six months how this will be counted with her status. Can any one tell me how this will affect her status? I will appreciate all of your help. Thanks.

      As far as i know,if your a green card holder,you are allowed to stay or visit your country over 6 months but do not exceed 1 year..if you go over 1 year you will pay a penalty or might not be able to come back.Check with your local INS office for more information just to be on the safe side.. Because i dont know if her status has any limitation outside the country.
