Dear Ron, If a woman with a GC stays in her home country for 7 months- to deliver baby there- what are the consequences she should be prepared for? Could she lose her GC? And/or be denied entry? Her husband will be working in the U.S., except for 2-3 trips to visit her, each for a week. I've heard many people say one must live in the U.S. for at least 6 months + 1 day to avoid any problems in retention of LPR. Will there be any documents she will have to carry out and bring in with her? Thank you for your time and appreciate your response so much.
