I got my permanent green-card recently. I want to leave USA and come back to my country, if I fill re-entry form, will it let me to not coming back to USA for next 10 years? or will I loose my green-card if I stay more than one year outside of USA?
A re-entry permit only offers protection for a two year period outside of the U.S. It also has certain limitations in terms of preservation of residence for naturalization purposes and how many time one can receive a re-entry permit. If you are planning an extended stay abroad, it is best to consult an experienced Immigration attorney to explain the consequences before leaving. There is also a legal guide to this issue in Avvo, which would be useful for you to read.
