Default permanent resident Question

Hi. I hope some one can help out. I came to the US in Jan of this year, after a long wait to join my Family. After a month or so I got my permant resident card its valid for 2 years. I have to go back home to the UK to visit my family for 6 day, I just bought my flight ticket. What I need to know is do I have to have any other paper on my return journey or will my passport and permant resident card do? I am stressed because if I need to get any papers I dont have I hope I have enough time to get them. Thank you so much

Just go. Passport and permanent residence card (Green Card) are all you need. You can come in and out of the country at will as long as your passport and green card are valid.

note: if you leave the US for > 6 months that's when you have to pay a bit more attention to the rules. The issue of "green card abandonment" might come up.

But for now, enjoy your trip home.

Strictly speaking, he just needs his Greencard. That's all he needs to enter the US, but yes, without a passport, getting on the plane to the UK might be a hassle.

Ive just got my 2 year Green Card and just returned from UK - All I had on me were GC/UK Passport and Marriage Cert (passport still in maiden name)
All was totally fine - and stood in US Citizen line and got a welcome home!!
