Is interesting... one time i ask border control "how long can i stay", and they answer me "as long as you want".

That may be true in practice. :lol: Ukrainian law allows a US citizen to visit Ukraine for no more than 180 days per year and no more than 90 days at one time without a visa. Visas for longer stays are to be obtained before you go to the country and are available at Ukrainian consulates in the USA.

now if i am not mistaken saying in uah for long time after you apply for gc may cause problems because your not living in usa. if you get married in usa and then move to uah for over 3 months would this not cause problems? is not a stipulation on how long you can stay out of usa during your conditional gc?

Less than 6 months absence will generally not cause a problem. 6 months to 1 year will cause a delay in the time the person can become a citizen and 1 year or more requires a reentry permit.

So a 4-5 month absence would be Ok for the LPR Ukrainian citizen, but the US citizen could not stay that long without a visa. You CAN get a visa to stay longer but you have to get it before you go there.

It depends more also on the type and duration of absences. If you are repeatedly going to Ukraine for even three months, returning for a few weeks then back to Ukraine for 4-5 months there are going to be questions asked. You had best be able to give a good reason AND be able to show you are maintaining US residency and INTEND to remain a US resident. There are specifics for this at the USCIS webiste under "maintaining US residency"

If you go to Ukraine for 4 months over the summer for example, even every year, no problem. If you are attending school and can show that you are maintaining US residency, no problem.

If you are LIVING in Ukraine and just pop into the US every 5 months for 3 weeks...you will soon be facing a judge to have your green card revoked. This applies to ANY green card, not just conditional.
