Traveling on a CR1

Hello. Forgive me in advance if I posted this question in the wrong forum as I wasn't sure where to post.

 

My wife has a CR-1 visa, resident ID card, a SSN card, a state issued ID and has been working since February. We are traveling for the first time to her home country (Dominican Republic) since her arrival in the USA in December 2018.  Our stay will be one week to visit family. What documents does she need for a smooth entry back into the USA next week? I also understand that she and I can go through the same line? (I'm a US citizen). Thanks for any tips and advice. We are also celebrating our 2 year wedding anniversary in few days. :)

Just her green card and passport will suffice.

Green card and passport.  The good news is you can come back in the same line.  The bad news is it’s the non-citizen line.  Actually it may vary by airport.  There used to be lines for LPR’s, but they seem to have been streamlined into just citizen and non-citizen.  I found that out traveling with my husband.  Old signs are still there but then you get there and things are changed.

Have you guys gone yet? We are supposed to travel in a few weeks to my husband's home country and we are nervous because we haven't traveled yet and don't want to do anything to risk our newly obtained GC.
