Q. I have a conditional greencard through marriage. I moved but want to keep old mailing address
A: Congrats. The form has a space for your physical address and your mailing address. Make sure you complete the section for mailing with the address that mail should come from USCIS.
Q. Im a US Permanent Resident but every time I go on vacation overseas and return Im always sent t secondary at the airport
A: Sorry to hear about this. However it sounds like the type of case that you need to talk with an immigration lawyer about before another overseas trip. You should take all documents related to the case where you waited in jail for a week. The lawyer will look at everything and advise about what is a good way to go. Good luck.
Q. My wife is a Canadian citizen, & just received her Green Card on 02/11/22. Is she required to spend 180 days in the U.S?
A: Congrats to her. She can return to Canada to finish her business there. If she stays out of the USA for more than a year that is when she will have a problem because US immigration may say she has abandoned her residency. She can seek specific legal advice from an attorney as there are things that can be done to make sure she does not have a problem if the business to be completed takes a long time.
