If I have my conditional green card and I chose to move back to my home country with my husband during the 2 year span. I know I must forfeit my status. However, if his work takes us back to the US later on in life, will I be able to reapply for a green card and live in the US again?
Why not apply for a re-entry permit to preserve your residency card? If your husband has been assigned to work abroad by his employer you may be able to keep your card. Otherwise, yes, he can petition for you again, but this time for a 10 year card.
First you must obtain U.S. permanent residency (green card) status through employer or immediate family sponsorships. Thereafter, you may apply for citizenship in 5 or 3 years. You should consult with an immigration lawyer to advise you.
