Does anyone of you been out of US for 5 mos with conditional green card and doesn't have any problem coming back in US? And will this affect removal of conditions later? My husband is a missionary in the Philippines. We're planning on going back August or September. I will have my removal of condition on February and will be back in US in January.

I know you can go out in US for 6 mos. having GC and will need re entry permit if you'll be out for 1 yr.

Would it be to risky for me to do this? Please let me know about your story and what you think.

Don't just open your mouth and prove yourself a fool....put it in writing.

It gets harder the more you know. Because the more you find out, the uglier everything seems.

Shouldn't a problem. Make sure you continue to build your bona fide's for removing of conditions. Keep a good record of your travels together.

ETA: You won't be able to file for ROC before January 15th of 2012, but must file before April 14th of 2012.

My husband was gone for a week shy of 6 months and he breezed right through POE without any questions.

You should not anticipate any problems. You should, however, anticipate the Immigration Officer asking you what you were doing for 5 months in the Philippines.

"My husband is a missionary" should cover it 100% and will most likely result in a "welcome back home" response.


There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.
