The Critical Link between Conditional Green Card & Applying for U.S. Citizenship

The Critical Link between Conditional Green Card & Applying for U.S. Citizenship

Becoming a U.S. Permanent Resident of the United States is a very exciting accomplishment- that is until you can't find work, qualified affordable child care, or a close family member abroad falls ill unexpectedly. These are a few of the reasons Permanent Residents often leave the United States for extensive periods of time despite the risk of abandoning their U.S. Permanent Resident Status. Unfortunately, it is a popular myth that U.S. permanent residents need just return to the United States every six months to avoid the risk of being stripped of permanent resident status by U.S. Customs Border & Patrol ("CBP").

Working with experienced immigration legal counsel is an essential step before relocating abroad for even a short period of time.
