    Default Re: Can a Green Card Holder Reenter the U.S. After a Three Year Absence

    Although the situation might have been avoided with advance planning, as the wife has been outside of the U.S. for well over the a year, it will be necessary for the husband to restart the process of filing for her to become a permanent resident.
