I'm asking this for a friend who went to her home country to help her mother. Her PGC is good until April 2018. She has a child from her marriage who is a Citizen and a child with PGC. All have been out of the Country for 8 years. Her Husband has visited every year they've been outside of the Country. She is on his Tax Forms and on Checking and Savings Accounts (joint accounts). Her husband died mid-Sept and she's having problems getting back into the country. She is a Beneficiary of a Life Insurance Policy, 401k, pension, and the balance of his Estate in Wisconsin according to how they give Estate (no will). The Estate and Life Insurance is in the mid 6 figures in value. Surely there has to be a way for her to re-enter the Country. I've seen and read the page on widows/widowers on the DHS website, but see nothing about re-entering this way with a PGC. dhs.gov/survivor-benefits-widows-and-widowers-us-citizens She's confused trying to figure the maze out. It appears the quickest way would be to give up her GC and to apply for the above way to re-enter. Anyone have experienced this or can help with suggestions? Best Wishes.
