Hey guys

Just wondering if anyone knows what the deal is once you get married and adjust status in the us on a k1. What happens if I move over there, get married within the three months and then adjust status etc but can't find work... Can I legally leave the country and return to my native and then head back over at a later date, say 6 months or so and still be considered a lpr? Or once We are married do I have to remain there for a certain period of time? I only ask cos I am concerned that the us economy is not so good at the moment still and I knoW I'll always have work back here. Any input would be highly appreciated.

Thanks!

** moving from K1 to Working and Travelling during Immigration ****

Once you have a greencard, you can travel, but you are supposed to remain resident in the USA- having a job abroad, even for less than 6 months, could be considered proof that you have abandoned residency, so be careful.

You can read through 'Maintaining Permanent Residence' from the USCIS: http://www.uscis.gov/portal/site/uscis/menuitem.eb1d4c2a3e5b9ac89243c6a7543f6d1a/?vgnextoid=3f443a4107083210VgnVCM100000082ca60aRCRD&vgnextchannel=3f443a4107083210VgnVCM100000082ca60aRCRD

Keep in mind that you will be given a 2 year conditional green card, and you will need to file to remove conditions 90 days before it expires.
