    Your wife can turn in her Green card when she leaves the U.S. It will not harm her if she wants to visit the US at a later date. Nor will there be any serious immigration issue either. Before she leaves, and if she has worked in the US, make sure she gets an alien clearance form from the IRS. Furthermore, the two of you can still file jointly toegether and will still be required to report her worldwide income. There will be some avenues to offset any potential double taxation issues. If you live also in India, you too must report all worldwide income. But again, there are avenues to offset the double taxation issues. Good Luck to you. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

    All Americans living abroad are required to file taxes in the US.

    As far as abandoning her status, I don't believe there would be any serious implications provided she was legal while living there. You will have to start from scratch should you decide to go back though, and there will most likely be a bit of a wait since her name will come up as having a previous immigration history and they'll do extra checks.

    Your best bet would be to consult a lawyer on this issue.

    Good luck!

    Maybe, maybe not, a very complicated issue.

    I agree with the previous poster...let enough time to go by so your wife can gain US citizenship, after that, nothing matters.
    While it is true that she could later obtain a tourist visa to go the US (when her GC expired), she could run into problems about being perceived as an intending immigrant and go thru a whole bunch of this and that to finally (maybe) get the visa....let her get citizenship, then, nothing else matters (unless her country doesn't like dual citizens...)

    Well Ol

    I think this is a foolish move . you and daughter are us citizens.

    if the uscis decide to interview you for the 751 and both of you do not attend. then her greencard will terminate. period. At least if you got her the 10yrs card.. you would have a better chance at keeping it active.. and within another 9 months she could apply for citizenship based on marriage to you. THIS is the MOST IMPORTANT part of this process. Once she obtains her citizenship, then she will be no different than you and your daughter. It wont matter if she never comes back to usa, as she will always remain a us citizen,


    Dont be foolish on this one
