Want to get some advice on my particular case -
LPR on Sept 2009
Obtained reentry permit in July 2011
Left US in Aug 2011. I'm the spouse and my husband is employed with a American company setting up subsidiary overseas.
I've been absent out of country for around 19 months.
Does that break my residency status and do I have to restart my clock towards citizenship.
My husband is still employed in US and on US payroll, we have been paying taxes as resident and have bank accounts, credit cards, 401K, driver's licence etc. Can I try to preserve residency status (inspite of the 19 month absence) since my spouse is still employed in US ?
You may argue that you maintained your US Residency IF you took the proper steps to preserve your status BEFORE you left the USA.
Count your blessings that your LPR status has not been revoked for remaining outside the USA for so long and wait the necessary time period to get your USC.
