advanced parole requirements

Filed: Country: Iran

I'm wondering if anyone knows the requirement for receiving advanced parole while waiting for an AOS. it says an emergency or bona fide reason. is leaving to have a ceremony with the spouse's family in another country a bonda fide reason? We'd like to come into the U.S. on a K1, get married and then meet her family somewhere for a celebration, as they're from Iran and won't be able to get into the U.S. It looks like the process takes 2-3 months, but I'm can't figure you the likelihood that she'll get approved. Also, can she leave once she changes her status after we marry? How long does the AOS process take? We just don't want to get stuck in the U.S. for 7 or 8 months and miss out on a celebration with her family.

Yes, you could list that for your AP application. (they would not probably expedite it for that reason though, so you would have to wait for the AP to come in the normal timeframe).

APs seem to be granted as a matter of the norm for K-1s, so as long as there are no overstay issues (180+ days), she should have no issue with this.

Once you get the AP, you can travel freely for up to a year (the expiration of the AP) till you get the GC.

AOS can take 3 months or longer - depends on factors that are plenty :)

So - if you file for the AOS as soon as you get married, you could get the paperwork back in a few months. I did, took 2 months, got the AP and EAD and within two days or so of that coming in, the greencard came, making the AP/EAD redundant and unneeded.

You will need to AOS to start the AP process anyway - just in case that was a question. (have to be adjusting to actually need the parole). It will be free anyway when you apply for the AOS. (as with the EAD).

My Advice is usually based on "Worst Case Scenario" and what is written in the rules/laws/instructions. That is the way I roll... -Protect your Status - file before your I-94 expires.
