I received calls from students asking about how to talk to boss about H1-B too. I advise four characters: K.I.S.S.
For those who don't know this American Slang yet, they are short for Keep It Simple (Otherwise) Stupid.
I was a boss in US for years. I worked with bosses as a professionals. I testify to you that bosses were not born yesterday. No matter what you are about to say, they know it. I assure you.
So what you need to say to him? Simple, two things.
1) I love this job. I am grateful for this opportunity you gave me. I am confident I can contribute a lot to this company (Prepare a little details about the base)
2) I will be grateful if the company may sponsor me H1B so that I can accomplish what is laid out for me and my team. As far as the procedure about H1B, I can retain a lawyer to take care of everything.
It is important to remember, like all negotiation in life, it is important to make small. compromise to achieve your goal. In this case, don't be shy to pick up lawyer's tab. Look at the big picture. Don't be short sighted.
Trust me, if you put your eyes on the ball like I said, you will persuade almost everybody.

Many people ask us whether they can stay in their own country (to make money) even after they get a green card. Of course, they come with a lot of hearsay too. Different people have different answers to them.
Here is the standard explanation because this is what the law says: You may be considered having abandoned your green card and thus your green card will be forfeited at the entry of port if:
- Move to another country intending to live there permanently
- Remain outside of the United States for more than 1 year without obtaining a reentry permit or returning resident visa. However, in determining whether your status has been abandoned, any length of absence from the United States may be considered, even if less than 1 year
- Remain outside of the United States for more than 2 years after issuance of a reentry permit without obtaining a returning resident visa. However, in determining whether your status has been abandoned any length of absence from the United States may be considered, even if less than 1 year
- Fail to file income tax returns while living outside of the United States for any period
- Declare yourself a “nonimmigrant” on your tax returns
Permanent resident is eligible to apply for US citizenship if, among meeting other requirements, he or she may establish that he or she has continuously stayed in US for 5 years or 3 years (if having obtained green card through marriage). Exception exists when he or she may establish the applicant did not disrupt the continuity of his or her residence in the United States during an extended absence.
