I know someone who got his work&travel permit then traveled internationally (it’s been 5 months) to disconnect mentally (he went through a lot in US alone). Then, he got his green card just 2 weeks ago. Does anyone know if the 6 months period will re-start because he got his GC? Or he has to come back regardless before the 6 months period is finished?

He has to be in US 180 days out of 365. The 6 month period will not restart technically.

I worked say go for 2 months and come back. But check with lawyer if you want to stay 5 months already plus 4 -5 new.

If he got GC, he is no longer obliged to come back after 6 months, I think! Isn't GC free pass of visa?

Okkk
