Ok so the AP is the documentation you need to return into the US after having left the country (vacation or go see family 'cause the green card takes forever) while in the Adjustment of Status Process but BEFORE having received the actual Greencard.

Fine... why do I have to put Intended Departure dates? We don't have any plan to go anywhere but what if her mom gets sick or we want to go to Mexico or something?

We put:

Date of departure No immediate plans

Length of trip: Short trips (less than two weeks)

The statement added at the end:

I-131, Application for Travel Document, Part 7

Statement of circumstances that warrant issuance of advance parole

I wish to apply for advance parole and obtain the necessary permission to travel to my home country prior to receipt of permanent residency status in the event of emergency or family illness. I also have a house for sale in the United Kingdom and will need to return there to complete the sale. I do not have any specific plans to travel at this time.

AP was approved this week, so it must have been good enough for them.
