I need to know this before i travel out of the country

  1. It depends on the reason for travel out of the country. Typically if you will be out of the country for an extended period of time, you should try to obtain a premission to re-enter prior to leaving the USA. If you stay out of the country for more than two years without a permission to re-enter, you will have abandonned your status. Contact an attorney to discuss your specific situation as this is for general information only.
