Recommended Posts

We are waiting for our NOA2 right now and I was wondering if we could apply now for AP. My fiance is an only child and his father is dead; his mom is 79 and is in stable health now but had a heart attack earlier this year. so we feel a little nervous about waiting for advance parole!

thanks for any information !!!

You can apply for AP either along with AOS, or after AOS (just not before AOS).

thanks for the help!

anyone know, is there any way to speed up the Advance Parole ? we can get documentation from my fiance's doctor regarding his mom's health. iread another person's post, who applied for an i-130 and left the embassy with a visa AND AP in hand- how is that possible? is that just how the "spouse" visa works, in contrast to the fiance visa?

im feeling a little lost with all the stuff post-NOA2. we are still waiting on the NOA2 but also trying to get ready for the next steps.

another question-- im planning on going back to ecuador for my fiance's interview, whenever that is :-) . when he get's his visa, we are going to leave ecuador and travel back here to the US together. for those of you planning the same thing, do you buy a one way ticket for your fiance or what? is it a lot more expensive?

what is everyone doing to PROVE the engagement? we are non-traditional, so i dont have a ring, a dress, or wedding plans.

thanks for the information and have a great day!!!! kathie
