Immigration Issues/applying a green card for my daughter
I'm a US permanent resident but most of the past 20 years, I reside oversea. I'd like to know if I'll get my premanent residence status when I apply a green card for my daughter (she's 10) since I've not been living in the US for the past 20 years.
If you have made one trip a year since your a permanent resident, you still are considered a permanent resident and can apply for oyur daughter. That case will take about 5 years. If you have not made one trip a year here, you may be consdiered to have abandoned your green card. If you are here now, I would recommend filing for your daughter now. Give them a copy of your Green card and it should be ok. If you are not here now, you should come back in and see if they question you upon arrival.
