Hi all, hope you can help:
I have an expired Reentry Permit (own fault, the expiration date simply "crept up on me".) I have been living in India for 3+ years because my US citizen husband was assigned there with a US company. I am a German national, and we have 3 children with American passports. Now my reentry permit is expired, and we are planning a trip to the USA in 2 weeks.
Q: if I enter the US on the visa waiver program, will that suggest that I am "intending" to give up permanent residency? (I am not).
Q: can I still apply for a Returning Resident Permit AFTER I have entered and exited the US on the visa waiver?
Q: can I enter the US while Returning Resident application is pending?
THANKS FOR ANY TIPS!
