Hello, I have a 10 year green card since 2015 - I was 22 years old at the time and just graduated from a UK university and have been living and working in the UK since (didn't file any tax returns which is really bad and I think will work against me). I have entered the US in 2015 to get my green card but left after a few weeks. I have also entered the US in 2020 before Covid hits to visit my sister (the CBP did ask me why I was gone for so long and gave me a warning but lets me through). I was there for around a month before leaving for the UK. I have tried applying for jobs in the US throughout these years but didn't manage to get any offers let alone any interviews. However, I started applying to jobs in the US recently and have been getting interviews and I think I'm close to getting a job offer. I want to ask if I manage to get a US job offer and fly to the US with my green card, will there be a high chance that CBP will deemed that I have abandoned my LPR and issue me with a notice to appear before an immigration judge? If so, what do you think are the chances of the judge deeming that I have abandoned my LPR? Thank you very much for your help.
Hi! My husband received his green card in 2011. We lived and worked in Germany 2015-2017( he applied for a re-entry permit), and we went back to the states. In June he was about to be laid off, but was offered a role in his home country. Myself and the kids joined him a few months later. We are about to do taxes and the 330 day residence test for foreign income exclusion, and he just had a panic that he should have filed for a re-entry permit. I think his fear is that the US government will think he’s abandoned residence in the USA. The thing is, we maintain a home and a mortgage payment in the USA, and all my family is there. His contract in the home country had a probation period and is not a permanent role. And furthermore we found out in December his employer is laying off 99% of their workforce, so we will likely return to the states near the end of the summer. Should he be worried? Is there much risk in this situation? Apologizes if I haven’t called out all these forms correctly, thank you
My parents I-130 application were approved but they don't feel ready to move to the US yet. We would prefer, if possible, to not abandon the application and start over later. Someone mentioned it may be possible to keep the case "alive" by "contacting NVC at least once a year". My questions are: Is this rule correct Is this a good idea What does "contacting NVC" mean Would paying the "IV fee" or "Affidavit of Support fee" help prevent the case from getting abandoned Does NVC email a warning before an approved I-130 application expires Any thoughts on stalling an approved I-130 application for a few years would be really appreciated
