My wife was issued a ten-year green card late 2014. She was in the US for almost three straight years until late May 2017.
She and my two boys have accompanied me to China for research. We'll have been here for ten months by the time we return late March 2018.
I understand an advanced parole is suggested for individuals who will be abroad for longer than 12 months. As I mentioned, we'll only be 10.
1. Given the current political climate regarding immigration, is there any reason to believe that my wife will be given any grief? I have plenty of documentation to prove our trip abroad was temporary, and that our home is indeed in the US.
2. My wife's Chinese passport will expire June 2018, about 3 months after we return late March 2018. Her green card is good through 2024. Will the expiration of her Chinese passport cause any problems?
3. Given everyone's experience, is there anything else I should do to ensure we all successfully pass immigration/customs upon our return?
