Thanks for your patience.
For how long have you been legally residing in Germany?
I understand. Thanks for your message.
Are you the spouse of a German citizen and, if so, is the good-faith spousal relationship still existing?
Subject to section 51 of the German Immigration Act (Aufenthaltsgesetz), your permanent residence permit (Niederlassungserlaubnis) will lapse if you leave Germany for an uninterrupted period of at least six months or if you leave Germany for a non-temporary purpose.
However, you may lodge an application with your local aliens' office (Ausländerbehörde) to have the six months' period extended. When lodging the application, you should submit the reasons for your stay abroad as well as a respective proof and indicate when you will travel back to Germany. As a rule, such extension will be granted. The aliens' office will then grant you a respective letter with that you will be able to prove upon your return to Germany that your permanent residence has not lapsed.
I hope I was able to assist you with the information provided. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any queries.

I recommend that you keep an "Anmeldung". If you deregister (Abmeldung), this will serve as evidence that you left Germany for a non-temporary purpose, which means that your residence permit will lapse.
