Based on information from another thread where an IO requested a letter from the employer ( http://www.immigrationportal.com/showthread.php?t=272891 ) regarding frequent trips outside the US, I pose the question: Not sure why the number or destination of trips would matter as long as continuous residency is met. If the trips were not job related, should it really make a difference? I make trips for 3 days each every other week for personal reasons (wife lives abroad). Would this really matter? I work in the US, pay mortgage here, etc. Any insights? Thanks.
