  • Not sure if i can renew for a green card?

    Hi, I am currently 20 and I live in Canada.
    I have a 10 year green card, which will expire this coming December. I want to renew it but the thing is I am not sure if my application will be approved because I have been out of the US for more than 2 years, due to some family issues. I know that if I am out of the US for more than 1 year, the USCIS may deem my green card to be abandoned.
    The thing is I didn't know about the policy because I was only 14 when I had to leave the states(due to family issues), and my parents never helped me apply for a US passport( even though I have lived there for 5 years already). My family also didn't apply for a reentry permit.
    I was wondering if they would let me petition it because I really want to renew my green card, and I know I lost my chance of getting citizenship.
    I have been to the US since, but I have been entering through my Canadian passport.
    Any suggestions would help, thanks.
