My roommate has a valid 10 year green card. She was out of the country for four years which in most cases would have resulted in her losing her green card. She was fortunate to receive an SB1 Visa where she demonstrated that not returning to the US was beyond her control. She returned to the U.S. a couple weeks ago. Not thinking things through I booked us a three day mini-cruise out of Los Angeles to Mexico and back (non-refundable of course). Should we worry at all about her being denied entry back into the U.S by CBP? Could they reason that after she was gone for four years and then 40 days later she takes off out of the country again, that this demonstrates that she is not taking her residency seriously? (even though this is an obvious quick vacation/holiday) To make things more complicated, her passport name does not match her green card name. This is because she is recently divorced and changed her name back to her maiden name. Her passport is in her current name and the green card is still in her married name. She has documentation of the divorce and name change, To avoid any risk should we just suck it up and forget about the cruise? If so, how long before she should not worry about travelling internationally again?
