i'm in the US right now (dv1 GC) for 2 weeks,due to some family issue (to help my 68-year-old mother) to complete here reversionary pension papers,that will takes almost 9 to 12 months.so is re entry obligatory for me in order to protect my PR.thank you very much
As my colleagues have stated, it would be a good idea to obtain a re-entry permit to protect your current status. As my late grandmother used to say, "it's better to have it and not need it, then to need it and not have it." (Grandma wasn't a lawyer, but she was wise.)
your question isn't clear. If you are not residing in the US you will lose your card through abandonment. If you have a reason for an extended stay abroad, and it is more than 6 months then you should get a re-entry permit before you leave. Any time you think you are leaving for more than a few months you should review things with an attorney. Afterwards will be too late.
I advise clients that it is almost always a good idea to get a reentry permit when they are compelled to go outside the USA for an open ended project. It is a presumptive indicator of intent to retain USA residency. Likewise, I do agree that you should consult with an Attorney about maintaining evidence of residency in the USA
