Immigration Issues/freezing my alien reg card

Question
I would like to suspend my green card & visits to the USA for 2 to 3 years.  Is this possible? Does it affect my green card eligibility? How do I go about this, websites etc?  I live in Israel.

Thank you for any help you can provide.

Answer
Alia,
There is no such thing as "freezing my alien reg card". You are required to show that you intend to be a permanent resident of the US at all times. If you are planning to stay out of the US for a year or more, I would advise you to apply for a re-entry permit.

Sincerely,
