Returning to the USA with American baby

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I am a permanent resident of the USA, I live in the USA with my partner and we have a baby. He is American and I am English. I have lived in the States for 8 years.

IF I go back home for a few years to the UK and then return back to the USA, I am guessing my baby will be fine to return anytime without questions as she has an American passport but i would not be able to return to live/work if my card has either expired or I have been away from the States for over a year, will I?

Having an American baby who is entitled to stay in the States does not give me any right to stay with her unless my permanent card is valid, is that right? She is 2 months old.

I don't really want to have to apply for an extension to leave the USA as I don't know how long I would be away. Does anyone have any knowledge on this situation or advice?

Many thanks!!
