Q: 

How long should I remain/stay in the U.S. once I have my green card in order to be called a legal U.S. Citizen?

A:  Once you have your green card you CAN stay as long as you want, but if you go out of the US it can only be for 6 months, if you stay out of the US for more than 6 months you could risk your status as resident. You can maintain your green card (permanent residence status) as long as you want. You can process your citizenship after 5 years of being a permanent resident, it is your option to naturalize (turn into a US citizen). Note: if by any chance you want to become a US citizen and you have been involved in felonies, the USCIS will NOT grant you the citizenship and they can be able to deport you back to your country of origin.

How long after my father (Hb-1 visa) files for a green card should he receive it?

A:  green card based on employment is Employer''s petition. Your father cannot apply it. It is a multi-step process dealing with Department of Labor, USCIS, Department of State. Usually the whole process could take somewhere from 3 years to 12 years.

Q: 

How long can an immigrant with a green card stay out of USA ? Is there any way to stay longer ?

A:  You can stay longer if you get advance parole (go to uscis.gov for the forms) however, I think the absolute limit even then is 6 months. Note that your being gone may also impact how long you need to wait to apply for citizenship, since there is a residency requirement for that as well. You can normally stay out up to 12 months without automatically losing your green card status, although if you stay one day over 12 months, you''ll lose it. You can apply for a re-entry permit that will allow you to stay out up to 2 years. you can only apply for that while in the US, although they will send it to you overseas. You could even return and reapply to stay out longer....
