possible problem: received green card while traveling abroad while in possession of approved parole
My wife and I decided to apply for a 1 year travel permit, while she was still awaiting her adjustment of status (ie waiting for her green card)
We were approved January 21,2015 and received (2) copies of a I-512L, Authorization for Parole of an Alien into the United States.
So we left the USA, and have been traveling around Europe since March 15, 2015.
We will be re-entering the USA sometime after January this year (the I-512L gives her authorization for travel, as long as she returns by January 20, 2016)
Now for the problem (?)
We have our mail forwarding from the USA to us here (using a mail forwarding service)
So while traveling, she has received both Her notice of receiving a approval for her green card, as well as her actual new green card.
**I remember reading somewhere here in VisaJourney that you are not to leave the usa before receiving your green card, without permission, and if you do, you are not to return using the green card.
SO, what do we do when we present ourselves at the USA border (we will be flying into chicago)?
Do we present both her green card and the Parole Authorization documents?
I was under the impression that her adjustment for status was on hold until we returned to the USA from our traveling...
Thank you to anyone that has the time to help!
