approval at interview?; travel after?

My now husband entered on a K-1 visa and we married in the US last December. Our AOS interview is scheduled for June 7. Per a Nolo e-book I bought to help with this whole process, unless there is some problem or need for additional documentation, we will be approved at the interview and my husband will get a stamp to that effect in his passport, which will be proof of his permanent resident status while we wait for the actual card to arrive. Is this accurate? If he gets this stamp, is this good enough to travel outside the country? Or should we apply for advance parole? We should probably do that anyway, in case we are not approved on the spot. But if we have the stamp, I'm just curious if he can travel with that, rather than needing advance parole documents?

Thanks,

Jennifer

If you get the stamp, you do not need the AP. (I doubt they would process the AP since your almost approved for the GC).


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.

From my understanding, they no longer give out the stamp. I have read several reviews where people have asked about it and were told that's not done anymore... but it certainly can't hurt to ask.

If you DO get it, then yes technically it should be enough, however I would personally wait for the card, just to be safe.

If you haven't applied for Advanced Parole already (i.e. sent it with the AOS package), I doubt, like said above, that they would even bother processing it.

Good luck at your interview.

I was told at mine that if I needed proof for work or anything that I would need to make an infopass to get the stamp.

'Getting the stamp' on interview day varies - but MOSTLY, it's not done.

Many times the APPROVAL of the AOS is not done on same day as interview, so that USCIS officer won't make the stamp in the passport.

HOWEVER -

If you get any notice that the application was APPROVED, after interview day, you can take that approval notice INTO an infopass appointment, and get the stamp.

Good Luck !

Ya know, you can find the answer to your question with the advanced search tool, when using a PC? Ditch the handphone, come back later on a PC, and try again.
