Yes, that is a very real possibility. As a permanent resident, you are expected to LIVE the majority of the time in the US.

Possibly if you have been out of hte uSA for more htan a year at a time or even in some cases more than 6 months at a time and you have not filed annual tax returns. Consult an attorney to determine if you may have abandoned your green card
