My husband is Mexican and has permanent residency card (greencard) valid through 2025 in the US. We are employed with a missions agency and will be going back to Mexico for about 2 years to work in an orphanage.
My question(s) is this :
If we want to leave and live in Mexico for 2 years does he have to file for the "reentry visa" (form i-131) ?
Is there another form he has to fill out?
Is there any way we can avoid this all together by coming back to US every 6 months or year (I read that when looking into the i-131)
Will being out of the country affect him when he applies for citizenship when we get back ? We have ties to the US (family, car, work, church etc...) so I don't think that they will be suspicious of "abandonment of country"
Any help or advice on what to file would be appreciated! visajourney helped us back in 2011 /2012 when we got married and now yall can help again :)
