Ugh, the one thing i didnt want to happen, is happening.

My grandmother is sick, I am hoping things dont get worse at home, i didnt really prepare for something bad to happen, i tried to remain positive and hoped it wouldn't happen.

I am currently waiting on my work auth, I just had my biometrics for the AOS and EAD. I didn't apply for the I-130 to allow me to travel, we just couldn't afford it.

My question is, Am i aloud to travel?

If not, WHEN will i be aloud to travel?

Are exceptions made?

I am from Ireland and god forbid anything were to happen, It would break my heart if i couldn't be there.

any help would be so appreciated!

Thank you. :( :( :(

AOS fee includes EAD and AP... you could have applied for it. Saddly you are not allowed to travel untill you have the green card or if you have been approved for the green card and recived the stamp in your passport at the interview which acts as a temp untill you get the card in the mail.

Your I-129f was approved in 5 days from your NOA1 date.

Your interview took 67 days from your I-129F NOA1 date.

AOS was approved in 2 months and 8 days without interview.

ROC was approved in 3 months and 2 days without interview.

I am very sorry that your gran is ill, but yea the AP is included in the AOS fee, maybe you can try making an infopass apointment and speaking to someone.

Sorry double post but here is the link for infopass I would suggest making an appointment if you can and see what they could do for you.

Eeeek...your in a hard position!

If you leave now without AP or a GC you will have been deemed to have abandoned your AOS and will have to start the visa process all over again, only this time on a spousal visa.

I would do as others have suggested and request an infopass appointment, but this appointment guarantee's nothing....AP still takes a while to process.

Its posible ( cant say for sure ) but they could give him a temp pass in his passport to travel home if the situation is very dire, I would still make an infopass appointment and see.

I really hope things go ok and you can get it sorted out. Just keep hope and I know its easy to say this but try not to feel too defeated, the forms and guides are pretty confusing and its hard to sit and read it the way they word things.

I pray for your Gran and You <3

I'm sorry to hear about your Grandmother. I hope that you'll find something out at your infopass appointment. Perhaps, because you applied for your AOS already (please bring your receipt for this to the infopass appointment), and knowing it's been paid for, they'll allow you now at this point to apply for AP? Maybe because of the circumstances, they'll expedite it. Please let us know what happens! All the best in getting the answers you want. (F)

Did you use the VJ guides to assist you in applying for AOS? One of the first statements on the page for "Adjustment of Status for K1, K3 visa holders" page is the following:

>> The fee for I-485 applications filed on or after July 30th 2007 inlcudes the cost of the I-131 and I-765 (no need to pay for them if filed with or while your I-485 application is pending adjudication -- as long as you paid the "new" rate for the I-485 effective July 30th 2007).

And further down the page is the following paragraph: As a note, in an emergency where travel outside of the United States is needed (while a beneficiary's I-485 in still being processed) an Advance Parole can be obtained quickly by scheduling an Info-Pass appointment at your local USCIS office. You must show proof (doctors note, etc) that the travel is a true emergency (such as to see a critically ill relative or other true emergency) and file an I-131 (AP) in person. If approved the AP is likely be issued the same day. Do not attempt to leave the country without an AP as this can result in the beneficiary's I-485 being considered "abandoned" and will require a new Visa to enter the US (and refiling of the I-485).

Please try an Info-Pass appointment as suggested. Before you go, please download and fill out the I-131 Advance Parole form and take it with you for your appointment, and take with you documentation regarding the nature of your emergency. Hopefully that will solve your problem. Good luck.

For other readers, there is no need to prove any "emergency" other than imminent travel. I've seen emergency AP granted for no more reason than an opportunity arose to take a wife on a business trip abroad. The root of "emergency" is "emerge", as in an opportunity OR crisis emerges. Evidence needed would be in the form of an airplane ticket or a simple statement of intent.

The AP is free with the AOS. make an infopass appointment. Take your recipt from the AOS and ask for an emergency AP, they can do this for you, no charge, if you show them an AOS is in process. We got one for our son in 2 weeks by going to the local office. You can get one even faster for an emergency OR you can receive permission to GO and they will send the AP to the consulate in your country for you to pick up befoe you come back.

True, our emergency was to make sure we had an AP before our son returned for college. Just explain the situation. We got the paper in two weeks, but the IO told us that he could "leave right now" and they would send the AP to Moscow, "just let me know where to send it" that wasn't necesary so we just waited for it to be mailed to us here.
