Myself and wife are beneficiary of I-130 filed by our daughter who is a USC on cosular processing while i am working abroad in Middle East. After getting the GC, we will visit US to become landed immigrant and at that time we plan to stay there for about 2 months and then return to continue for my current good job with a foreign employer in Middle East for about 2 years time during which we will file US taxes and pay into social security. In between we will be regularly visiting US every 6 months for 1 month at a time, to start process of establishing a home in USA. Our question is that do we need to file for Reentry Visa, if yes what other precaution we should take to prove our genuine situation.Will the 2 month period be sufficient, as staying more than that will be diffiult from my job point of view. Your reply is much appreciated.
As a green card holder you are required to be a permanent resident of the United States. Staying out of the US for a year may result in the USCIS revoking your green card. You can file for a Re-entry visa and stay out of the US for a year. Returning to the US every six months and staying for 2 months at a time is not sufficient to show permanent residency in the US. The only option in such situations is to hope that USCIS does not call you out on this.
