    Because of have been living abroad for a long time..

    I tried to make two sentences but I am not sure if they are correct. Can you tell me if the following sentences are grammatical and have same meanings?

    1) Because of have been living abroad for a long time I hadn't been aware of the legal changes of my country.
    2) Because of have lived abroad for a long time I wasn't aware of the legal changes of my country.

    The part beginning "Because of" is incorrect in both.

    Because I have been living abroad for a long time, I wasn't aware of the legal changes in my country.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
