My family has been an immigrant since 2011, applied re-entry on 2012, approved till 2014, again applied 2014, approved till 2016. Is there a limit for re-entry application? Will it affect our status with immigrations? Will we be questioned the third time?
The question doesn't only need to address the number of times the permit is applied for.
It also needs to address the number of time you have used these permits and the number of days you have been out of the US ... and whether or not any one trip out of the US has been for more than 6 months.
Talk to an attorney before taking the potentially risky step of applying a 3rd time.

I agree with attorney Capriotti--too many details missing for a meaningful answer. Are you lawful permanent residents? Why not apply for U.S. citizenship so that you don't keep filing for re-entry?
I have news for you. Reentry permit approvals do not guarantee your admission to the United States. You must have justified reasons to live outside the United States and maintain ties with the United States. After all, being a permanent resident means that you live and work here permanently. You need the advice of a qualified attorney to protect your interests.
I agree with my colleagues. It also depends on the reason to seek to re-enter to maintain status.
