I've met my fiance 10 years ago in High School. In 2008 he went back to Argentina with his family. He was a resident and he lost his residency because he stayed outside the US for over six months. Eight years later I'm a Naturalized citizen and I'm filing for a K-1 visa. Has anyone had a case like this? Anyone know if this will be an issue with approval?

Thank you

I'm not an expert and I recommend you call an attorney - even though it will cost a little money, it will put your mind at ease and someone with more experience and knowledge can help you. However, if the reason why he lost his residency was simply because he left the country and never came back (not because he was deported, etc), then he can go through the process of gaining residency again - and of course, that's after you two get married on a k-1 visa. If he still has his old green card, he may want to contact his local US embassy and ask if he should go through the process of returning it to avoid problems. I'm not an expert on this, but here's some information I found. http://www.***removed***/greencard/abandonment-greencard.html
