  1. Hello friends! First, I just wanted to thanks in advance to this lovely community 💜 A little about my status: I am currently working abroad since Feb 2023 until Feb 2024 as a deployed delegate for an US company. I'm permanent resident (conditional, based marriage) since March this year. I got it while overseas. My issue!: I'll be back to the USA next week, and will stay there for 5-6 weeks (until biometrics) to apply for the reentry permit but was hoping someone could provide advice if that is necessary because I will only be abroad for 11 months (as LPR) when my work contract ends, should I still apply for reentry? I asked USCIS agent and told me that estimated processing times is 17 months, so I'm worried 😕 maybe I can extend my contract but definitely not enough to cover all the months, and, overall, I have a conditional LPR, 2 years, so I have to be back before March 2025... If I decide to return to the USA, let's say in March - April 2024, with a pending reentry application, would I be ok? Thanks in advance! Michelle
  2. This is a story that was published in my local news. I know the family. Mexican National cannot legally return to US with Husband and kids Long story short: -She arrived in the USA at 4yrs old illegally and has lived here most of her life -At 22yrs old, she married a US citizen (2012) in the States -They have 5 children together -She wanted to file legal documents to become a legal resident, obtain a license, etc -She was advised to fly to Mexico to start the process - She was denied Re-Entry to the USA - Its been 18 months since her denial and she has been stuck in Mexico ever since -Family is desperate for solutions -Lawyer states she may have to stay in Mexico (separated from her husband 5 kids for up to 10 years) Does anyone have any advice? Any sort of help is appreciated! Thanks
  3. Hello everyone, I have 2 questions that I am hoping I can get some help with or information from anyone who has been through a similar experience. I applied for my re-entry permit (i-131) in July and gave my biometrics in September (online status shows that my fingerprints were accepted). Once I had my biometrics appointment, I left the USA and came back to the U.K. I understand that a re-entry permit can take up to a year to be completed. I wanted to know if I can still travel to and from the USA with this permit pending? Or should I wait until I have my re-entry permit in hand to be able to travel? My next question concerns taxes. I became a LPR in May 2022. I have not yet moved to the United States (for various reasons) but I will be making the permanent move in 2023. Do I need to submit a tax return for 2022? Or do I only submit a tax return once I have officially moved and resided there for a longer period of time. Any answers would be massively appreciated. Thank you.
  4. My husband, a Russian citizen, got his IR1 visa this past July and we came to the US on August 1st. He got his ssn in the mail and is even getting his driving learners permit next week. He has not gotten his greencard yet though. However, he is still a university student and we were hoping his classes would be online this semester but it seems they will be in person, meaning we must go back to Russia in the first week of September. The next chance to come back to America may only be next year in May/June, once he graduates. Would he be able to re-enter the US with his IR1 visa after being away that long? Does anyone know if there would br any repercussions?
