Re-Entry Permit vs. Advance Parole

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

Just to play catchup as I've not updated my profile yet, I am an Irish girl who got married to a USC 3 weeks ago and we are just now filing the paperwork. I have a question about the I-131 and that is this, I am concerned that I may have to travel back to Ireland before our interview as my father is 84 and ailing and I want to make sure that should something happen, I can be there.

I have read through the supporting documentation and as far as I can tell it is a single Advance Parole I need to be applying for and not a Re-Entry Permit but what I am wondering is that in Part 3 'Processing Information' section I need to specify an intended date of departure which will be hard as I'm hoping I won't need to go back, it's just a precaution and so, do I only file for an AP if I am definitely going back or should I file it along with the I-485 etc in the eventuality that I do need to use it. Also, in Part 7, it asks to include on a seperate sheet of paper why I qualify to be granted this form (ans. that I married a USC and am filing an I-485 concurrently) and what circumstances warrant

Was or is anyone in the same situation and how did you go about filling out the form as in the sample form on
