If a person stays out of the United States more than six months, U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers can question you and ask the reason for your being out of the country so long. He then admit you with a warning regarding overstays abroad. If you are out of the country more than one year, however, it is very likely that they may cancel your permanent residency status. In that event you would have to fight in immigration court to keep your green card Protby proving that you did not abandon your U.S. permanent residency status. Good luck to you.
