I need more information to answer your question. Do you have a Green Card? If so, green card holders are not allowed to stay outside the U.S. more than 6 months at a time. Otherwise, it could be construed that you abandoned your permanent residence.

You can return to the U.S., but probably should apply for a re-entry permit.

Our law firm handles successful immigration petitions. Contact our law firm for a confidential consultation.

Good luck!

Not unless you have abandoned your residency.
It is best to contact an immigration lawyer for a discussion prior to your return.
If you went for a particular purpose with a set date of termination you should be able to return as an LPR.

Safe trip.
