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.
