If parents return the US Permanent Resident Card, does it affect the PR status of their ADULT (above 18) son / daughter?

I got my PR card through my parents who received their PR cards a few years back. I am currently in US working for the past 2 years, however for a number of reasons my parents have decided to return the PR card and continue living in India. In such a scenario, once they return their PR cards, will that affect my PR status in USA in any way? Please share your experiences if somebody else have faced a similar situation earlier.

Thank you for your help in advance!

of course not, it's their decision, if you live here, why would there be a problem, if they decided after you got your GC to move back to their country?

their decision has nothing to do with you, as long as you don't abandon residency

it's a shame because they could wait until they got their citizenship and then return to India, in that way they can move to India, but when they wanted to return to visit you, being US citizens they can come and go as they please

for you, you will have to wait until 5 years of being a LPR to apply for citizenship

Once you have your greencard, it is independant of theirs. it is only during the process of getting the visa that your case is tied to theirs as a derrivative.
