My wife Adjustment of Status Application (AOS) is currently pending.
Recently we applied and received the Employment Authorization Card and Advance Parole Card. However we were unable to travel internationally when we received the card. We detailed in the I-131 application we would like to travel on Dec 20th 2013.
Yet we recieved the notification that the I-131 application was approved on Dec 20, 2013 and then we received the actual card on Dec 24th..
Now we are in a position to travel, but we have some concerns since reading the instructions more carefully for i-131, it says "
If you are in the United States and seek an Advance Parole Document, you may apply if:
You have a pending application to adjust status, Form I-485, and you seek to travel abroad for “urgent
humanitarian reasons” or in furtherance of a “significant public benefit,” which may include a personal or
family emergency or bona fide business reasons.
Travel for vacation is not a valid purpose."
Has anyone used the Advance Parole for just seeing the family, vacation?
Thank you for your consideration
